JW 7.9.1 Casting Function to Chromecast

Hello, we use the latest JWPlayer (AdsEdition). The new Cast-Feature directly form the Player to Chromecast (1. Version) runs fine. But there is another Problem. I have a Motorola MotoG (Gen 1) Handy with Android 5.

If i send the Livestream from my Toshiba Laptop (Win 10, lastest Chrome Browser) over the Cast-Button to Chromecast, on my Motorla Handy the Default Media Receiver also switches to Chromast. There is a Message on Display "Default Media Receiver switched to Chromcast 5229". I also can Stop and Start the Stream from the Motorola Handy. This looks like a Bug ...

Here the Code for our Player:

file: "http://URLtoLivestream/playlist.m3u8",
cast:{ },
width: "640",
height: "360",
skin: "bekle",
stretching: "exactfit",
aspectratio: "16:9",
autostart: true

This is not a bug with JW Player. You’ll most likely want to ask Google why Chromecast does that.
