Zattoo iPad app. and Chromecast

In the last few days, I haven't been able to cast Zattoo from my iPad to Chromecast. The casting icon (top right corner) is not present.

The app. version is 2.5.0 (220) and from what I can ascertain, the last update was about a month ago. It's been working (casting) after that - just not now.

This is the same using two different Chromecasts on two different home wifi networks; and also another castable app. (Flipps), although YT works.

The Zattoo (v. 1.7.6 (207)) and Flipps app. work fine from Android, as does Zattoo from Chrome browser on laptop.


It appears that some bug, casting Zattoo on IOS, has recently appeared.

Anyone else noticed anything similar, before I get out my soldering iron?

As the hopeful actress said to the fat director, on the casting couch: "Thanks for the tip."

I even thought to do a restart ..... and then completely forgot.
I should probably do restarts a bit more frequently, than just after IOS software updates.

Anyway, problem solved - cheers.

Hello IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Re: Zattoo iPad app. and Chromecast

I know this thread was a while ago but can I ask pls how you're able to download the Zattoo app on iPad? I've downloaded it fine on our Samsung tablet but I don't seem able to do so with the iPad. I'm wondering if it's because my iTunes account is UK and not Swiss.

For those who have the Zattoo app on their iPad, do you have a Swiss or UK iTunes account?

Thanks

Laura

Please expand on "...... I don't seem able to do so with the iPad ....." - what exactly is happening ... or not?

Are you trying to download from iTunes directly, or via the App Store? ...... I know - effectively the same - but different.

Are you also running your iPad using a VPN, with a UK IP address? - although Zattoo is available in UK (in a localised, diluted form), so should still download.

Re: Zattoo iPad app. and Chromecast

I went through to download the app via the website and there was just a blank screen and via the App Store when I searched "Zattoo" nothing appeared. However I just went to take screenshots to attach to this reply and for the first time (after several goes) a message appeared saying it's only available in the Swiss store. So I think it's definitely because my iTunes/App Store is UK not Swiss. I'll now need to look to switch it.

Not sure about the VPN and IP Q....I use Swisscom Internet, it's an iPad purchased in the UK but I'm using it in Switzerland. Might I encounter further problems if I do manage to download the Zattoo app (through switching my App Store / iTunes to Swiss)?

Thanks for your help
