With my current setup, I am successfully able to stream Dolby Digital through Chromecast using Google Play Movies. This proves that the hardware and connected configuration works with Dolby Digital surround.
With all that same setup, I am unable to stream Netflix in anything but stereo.
I have two separate Chromecasts (one is a v2 and one is a v3) and both have the same issue.
- I have tried resetting chromecasts to factory defaults and setting them back up again.
- I have tried streaming Netflix from two separate phones.
- I even have tried two separate Netflix accounts.
- I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Netflix android app.
- I have tried streaming Netflix from PC.
There is never an option for anything but stereo audio from Netflix through Chromecast. I even have a SmartTV with Netflix, and when I stream Netflix on it instead of the Chromecast, I am able to get Dolby Digital Surround Sound with the same Netflix video. I am also able to see Dolby Digital within the audio settings on Netflix when streaming on the PC (not through chromecast) using the windows 10 app.
I have a approx 117Mbps down cable connection. Netflix account is set to stream in high quality.
So in summary, my setup and Chromecast is working with Dolby Digital Surround in Google Play Movies, but does not allow anything but Stereo when streaming from Netflix. It's not a hardware or connection issue, It's not a specific account, specific app, just Netflix -> chromecast has no ability for surround sound, just stereo audio.
