Android Crash on Share - Any Updates?

I recently bought the app and was disappointed to learn it crashes immediately on attempting to connect to Chromecast. The one device I found old enough to not have this bug (Nvidia Shield handheld) is slow enough that the stream flickers horribly. Is there any progress towards fixing this cast crash bug? Given how long since the last app update I'm getting worried the app has been abandoned.

The app has not been abandoned. InfinitasDM doesn't bring in enough money to sustain any development on its own, so development only gets to happen when I can afford to pay for it directly from my personal funds.

Google killed off Unity3d Chromecast API support without any warning a few updates back (which is why it only works in Android 7.x and older now), so I have been scrambling to find a solution for a while. Without the API I've had to find someone who can essentially re-write the entire casting element from scratch, which has proven very difficult.

It's being worked on right now though, as I finally found someone last week, but it is proving a complex problem to solve. I'm optimistic that I'll have an update soon, but it's been hard fought to make it happen.

Thank you for your patience as I do my best to work through this as quickly as possible.

Just as a quick update - a fix has not been found for this yet, but this IS still being worked on.

Unfortunately this has been a very complicated issue to resolve. The first attempt to fix it (manually updating the Chromecast API for Unity) was a bust, Google has effectively made their original plugin completely incompatible with Unity (the engine IDM was built on).

We are currently investigating alternative ways to replicate the functionality without it. Thank you for your patience.

Any new updates on this? I just got the app on both steam and google play but for ease of use my note 8 is way easier to bring around than havin to carry my desktop and being able to use my stylus is a big plus. Lol So far enjoying the hell out of this app.

No, unfortunately no updates yet. I still have yet to find someone capable of solving the issue and the original programmer still hasn't been available yet. I'm still looking while I wait for him to become available, but it has proven incredibly challenging to find someone else, google really threw me for a loop with this :(

Thanks for the quick response. Hopefully you get a fix pretty soon. This app has made DM'ing for some brand new players a lot easier.
