When I'm viewing YouTube videos on my laptop I would like to "cast" them to the SHD. Like you can with Chromecast audio to a hifi system.

Unfortunately I don't think that is possible.

To cast youtube it could work to use the Bubble UPnP server and the Bubble UpnP app (on Android). Maybe it works with the Bubble UpnP app already without the server. I am not sure. You share the video in the youtube app to the bubble upnp app and this casts it to the streamer.

Yes that works but only on a rooted Android phone.

I have tried it again on a normal, unrooted BQ smartphone and it did work:

youtube app => share to Bubble UpnP app => playing to Bubble UpnP server (installed on my Synology NAS) => being a openhome proxy to my streamer.

Without the Bubble UpnP server it did not work. But this can be related to my streamer (not a minidsp SHD). Because the SHD supports openhome, it might work directly without the Bubble server with a SHD?

Still I can't figure out how to send YouTube sound to the SHD. :blush:

If you're using a Mac, you can enable Shairport-Sync on the SHD and use the SHD as an Airplay speaker. This is working really nicely for me.
