Chromecast works with some movies, not others

Post by memyselfandI » Tue May 26, 2020 3:48 am

Recently installed current on Windows10 PC
Loaded a movie, Sonic the Hedgehog
The chromecast icon shows up on the bottom right corner of my window
In it I see my Cast to my Chromecast Ultra on my TV.
All good, works well.

Load up a different movie, Birds of prey.
Loads OK, plays on my local console screen OK. I watch for a minute, all is working well.
Switch to my Chromecast.
Timer count starts, goes a few more seconds, then goes back to zero.
Restarts on the Chromecast device, and back to zero, over and over.
I do not know what I could try otherwise.
I searched here on the forums for . of Chromecast, and am finding nothing similar.
Anyone with a hint?

I've heard that not every video format works good with chromecast
so you can change torrent, or try another movie
