Problem with mkchromecast


i’d like to cast music on a chromecast speaker so i installed mkchromecast. But it doesn’t work.

When i launch mkchromecast in terminal :

mkchromecast                                                     ✔ 
/usr/share/mkchromecast/mkchromecast/ SyntaxWarning: "is not" with a literal. Did you mean "!="?
  if iface is not None and iface[0]['addr'] is not '':

zsh: killed     mkchromecast

I don’t know how to correct it.

Thanx in advance!


Have you read the comments on the AUR page? There is this one pinned AUR (en) - mkchromecast

You probably use pipewire, hence you better go with mkchromecast-git as mentioned there.
