After doing a bunch of reading on Google Play I'm getting the impression that it won't play anything that it hasn't already uploaded. "Local" appears to mean it downloads it again. I was hoping for a truly local play with no intervening upload/compression/download cycle.Am I missing something?
This works well playing FLAC fiules from my Synology NAS but does not do gapless so is useless to me.I have two other devices playing from the same Synology source / streamer. One an Onkyo mini system will not play gapless and Onkyo have stated that they do not plan to update the software to allow gapless, their newer kit apparently does. My second (main) player is a Yamaha CDN 500 which does gapless and does most of what I need other than not being able to seek (FF and Rew) within track.Maybe Google will upgrade their firmware to allow gapless in future?Ian
Similarly, my NAS functions as a DLNA server, and I can play back music on my Chromecasts using BubbleUPNP on my phone. It's 100% local, no internet connection needed.

I don't have a CC Audio, but when I block my CC device from accessing the internet (via my router's settings), I can't get playback to start.
Which apps are you using? Obviously anything streaming needs direct Internet access for the Chromecast, but I've used my CC Audio for purely local playback before, with no internet connection.
