Exclusion of Chromecast Support?

Post by mfulgo » Sun Dec 14, 2014 11:11 am

v5.0.0-b1 includes su.litvak.chromecast:api-v2:0.0.3. I've run into a number of issues with the library that persist in the latest v0.0.5-SNAPSHOT, which make me question whether it's a good idea to include it in UMS (in its current form). Doing so makes UMS less stable. Perhaps make it an experimental option users have to turn on?

Thoughts?

In fact it already is just add

Code: Select all

chromecast_extension=false
to UMS.conf and it will not start the Chromecast extension. I haven't seen any problem so that's why it's on default
We reject: kings, presidents and voting.
We believe in: rough consensus and running code.

Thanks, I missed that in the config. I'd still be concerned about including v0.0.3 though; v0.0.5 should have fixes for the bugs I reported, so I'd at least recommend pulling in the latest.
