Chromecast Audio Stuttering/lagging


Recommended Posts

PA streams the audio as PCM after applying it's magic to your flac, mp3, ... files. 

HiFi cast acts just as a server and only streams the compressed file directly to the Chromecast.

This means first of all that PA processes the file and then the stream is significantly larger than steaming a compressed file.

 I installed the Pulsar player which works perfectly on the same music and Chromecast audio device.  I switched back and forth a few times and in every case Poweramp paused and Pulsar never had an issue.  

So I guess the Poweramp developers are not listening.   And FYI, Pulsar is much easier to use.
