Hi all,

I don't know if it's just me, but chromecast only shows a black screen on many embedded video streams, e.g. Amazon Prime, ran.de... either on Edge Stable (96.0.1054.62), Dev (98.0.1100.3) and Canary (99.0.1113.0). 

It works like charm on Chrome and Chrome Canary (haven't tested on Chrome Dev), so it should work on Edge as well, or?

There's not much to adjust in edge://flags anymore and deactivating hardware acceleration also doesn't solve the problem. Any suggestions or is it really a bug?

Btw, chromecast works in general on my Edge installations for the usual streams like youtube.com

 

Regards
