Start playlist on specific index with Chromecast

Dear support team.

Currently we are facing the problem, that the chromecast option always starts with the first item in the playlist. Is there an option to force the start on a specific index of the playlist? An example is appreciated.

Thank you very much.

Hi there,

It does not look like this is possible with our current implementation of casting. However, our engineers are presenting re-working that implementation so I could definitely forward this to them to see if it is something that they would include. However, they would probably want to know a use case for this functionality. For example, why would a player be setup to play one playlist item when not casting, but be told to play a different one when casting?

Please let me know. Thanks!
