@TrueGame I think cast media is not working and it is a known issue :)

It is using Chromecast, so unless you have a Chromecast device, it won't work, which is normal.
it's not using Miracast or DLNA that is the widely available version of this technology.

If I try to cast to my LG TV from Canary it does not work. I get "Device not Supported".  If I go to Windows - Settings - Devices - Bluetooth and delete LG TV then do Add Bluetooth and select LG TV it connects and works fine.  I just have to delete LG TV every time and then add it again.
