Hi Stefan, can you confirm?

This should be triaged. Mike can you do that?

[triage] Non-critical: we have a small number of unique casters: https://sql.telemetry.mozilla.org/queries/50549/source Assuming all casts go through "cast.1" telemetry action. 

I will notify sumo this may not be working as expected, however.

Just wanted to let you know that I am experiencing same issue.

Firefox for Android 58.0.2
Galaxy S8 US Unlocked (Android 8.0 Oreo beta)

When I go to Youtube or Kissanime.ru html5 player loads but there is no cast button. Casting works from Google Chrome for Android and Web Video Caster (Android app which is basically a browser + more features related to casting)

Thanks
Emir

¡Hola!

Ended up here via https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1210129

Confirming this bug given that the reporter, a commenter here and the author of the SuMo question do experience it.

¡Gracias!

Hi, maybe it is small as we cannot use it. When I first tried to cast from Firefox it didn't work and the workarround I found whas to use Chrome (just for casting). I mainly use it for gogoanime.io, animeflv.net or jkanime.net

I found this bug by chance one month ago just because I was checking translations in the app and opened SuMo for testing a feature.
Re-triaging per https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1473195

Needinfo :susheel if you think this bug should be re-triaged.
