Videostream won't start because it says it's already running



  • After the new version came out I found that when I try to start it via the Google Apps group I get a an OOps message saying it cannot start because it is already running.

    But it isn't.

    Installed it on my brother's PC today and the same thing happens.



  • Same for me but I don't even get a message. I just click to stream it to the chromecast and the video doesn't even move past 0:00. The same files worked perfectly before the update/ visual change came out..



  • Tried rebooting the chromecast?



  • I just noticed that when I get the Ooops message, there is a Chrome Tab entitled "You love us too much" that is tied to the Ooops screen. There is also a tab for Videoscreen. So, there are, indeed, two tabs. I just close the "You love us too much" tab and VS from the other tab is ready and waiting for a movie. Hooray.

    My brother just did the same thing on his system andrthe exact same thing happened. The same silly "you love us too much" which he then closed and VS from the other tab worked fine.

    Ahhh Glad you figured it out - sorry we didn't make this more clear. We'll try to fix this for the next release!
