tinyCam Pro app has Chromecast feature allegedly. However, the app when active and running does not show as one of the Chromecast devices.
Furthermore, I can't find Chromecast settings nowhere in the camera settings within the app.
What am I missing?

My objective is to send audio messages to the cam (two way audio cam) from another app that I'm using to send audio messages to Chromecast devices.

Thanks

In Tinycam Pro, Cast icon should be shown in app top bar in single camera view only.

Yes, I see it, however it has 4 lines to setup that confuse me. It asks for url, username and password. What is this about. I simply want to stream the camera content to Google Home (a.k.a. Nest Hub) displays. Bottom line is does tinycam pro take the camera image and stream it out or it streams other content in?

Yes, I found it in this forum how to stream out. This is actually another feature called RTMP streaming. So the answer by @jack7 is irrelevant to the original question.
Original question is about Chromecast integration that is advertised on the front page of tinyCam Monitor | Home
The question remains how to stream to other Chromecast devices on the network ????
Thanks

My previous post was relevant to your question. You apparently don't understand what tinycam chromecast feature is. Also, chromecast does not support RTMP streams.
Tinycam chromecast icon works fine for me. I click it and a list of chromecast devices appear. I select one and camera stream appears on TV. I use android tablet. Maybe your problem is caused by running tinycam on Sony Bravia TV.

@jack7 I didn't mean to be rude and I'm sorry if it came through that way. Unfortunately the only thing I saw was the RTMP streaming option in the upper right corner of single camera settings. I do agree that Chromecast doesn't use RTMP and it is not an option. Maybe you're right that TV and android tablet are different as Bravia TV is actually driven by Google TV that is the successor of Android TV but not necessarily pure play Android OS. Another great disappointment is that I can't access the web server that tinycam provides allegedly at port 8083. Tried changing the port to no avail.
