Chromecast problem is with that cannot communicate it with android phone.
Spotify problem is that cannot control spotify at amplifier from laptop. Something to do with multicast.
My test setup is one 3805i AP and V2110 controler at other location. So traffic is bridged@AP. Version 09.21.02.0014. Traffic goes inside one AP. No problems if traffic goes between wired and wireless.
No problems if I use some bulk home AP. I have not filtered any traffic. All traffic should pass. Multicast bridging enabled with 0.0.0.0/0. Issue did exist also with couple older software releases.
Any clues where to check? This should be possible as this works with bulk no name AP, but not with identifi.
have checked this post https://community.extremenetworks.com/extreme/topics/chromecast-not-streaming-over-wireless
if its helpful for you?
Bulk aps are not compareable to enterprise aps, the default multicast handling is very different.
Do you have Wireless Replication also activated at the multicast configuration?
Like the help box it seems to be exactly your problem:
"Wireless replication" controls whether multicasts from wireless clients will be forwarded back to other wireless clients. Disabling wireless replication can save wireless bandwidth but some protocols (such as SpectraTalk's "Push to Talk" feature) won't work when wireless replication is disabled. When multicast bridging/forwarding is enabled while wireless replication is disabled multicasts to the address will only be forwarded from the wired network to wireless stations and from wireless stations to the wired network, not directly between wireless stations.
Using wireshark I can see mDNS traffic coming from wif-interface. I can see going out from eth0 interface of the AP. If I put one device to 2.4Ghz and other to 5GHz I can see mDNS coming in from other but not going out from other channel.
I added second 3805i AP to configuration. If I connect my iPhone to AP 1. and Chromecast to AP 2. Using wireshark I can see mDNS coming from AP1 wif interface. Going out on eth0. Same time using wireshark on AP 2 I can see mDNS coming in from eth0 interface. I cannot see mDNS going out on wif interface of the AP 2.
Same behavior even I disable multicast replication and multicast bridging. Traffic looks like this:
fe80::81d:5929:13b:4926 ff02::fb MDNS 202 Standard query 0x0000 PTR _googlecast._tcp.local, "QM" question
fe80::81d:5929:13b:4926 ff02::fb MDNS 211 Standard query 0x0000 PTR _raop._tcp.local, "QM" question PTR _airplay._tcp.local, "QM" question
My conclusion is that identifi AP cannot replicate ipv6 multicast or even pass it thru if it comes from eth0 (wired interface). Even upgraded to v10 software. No change.
If you are interested in additional testing, below is what we discovered with a customer when was using ChromeCast and a default deny role. We were able to troubleshoot the problem and come up with the below filters which worked for us. Of course, your mileage may vary; we were working with laptops, not Android/iOS devices...Chromecast - Ports to open for a Deny role

8008-8009 - TCP transmission between Chromecast and casting device
I tried using your suggestion. No change. I tried using Win 7 laptop but no go. I have default permit as a default rule.
Direct connections work but these devices want to make automatic discovery to find each other and make things work. For some reason that discovery does not work and I have no idea what to next.
For reasons unknown to me even with new VNS and multicast allowed in topology Apple device tries mDNS (ipv6) to find the chromecast. When I use pineapple ap which do not support ipv6 all happens in ipv4 and apple device finds the chromecast. All ipv6 options are disabled and ipv6 is disabled at the router.
Or could the problem be more inside AP? I looked a into to a AP /flash/home/config/current.cfg. From there I found something interesting:
Under radio x vns 1 I found vlan configuration where traffic is forwarded.
cset vapDynamicEgressVlanList 0:2 40970 4
cset vapDefaultContainVlan 0:2 40970
and under topology settings. What ever I change in controller does not change anything in this settings.
# cset topology2Vlan key:vlanId tagged/untagged tunnel/bridge
cset topology2Vlan key 4 vlanId 40970 untagged bridge
cset topoMcastFilter key 4 add rule 1 allow 126.96.36.199/32 wirelessRep disable
cset topoMcastFilter key 4 add rule 2 allow 188.8.131.52/32 wirelessRep disable
cset topoMcastFilter key 4 add rule 3 allow 184.108.40.206/32 wirelessRep disable
cset topoMcastFilter key 4 add rule 4 allow 220.127.116.11/32 wirelessRep disable
cset topoMcastFilter key 4 add rule 5 deny 0.0.0.0/0 wirelessRep disable
Using wireshark now I can see mDNS searched using ipv4 and ipv6 and also I see devices using ipv4 SSDP to search chromecast.
Thank you for the help. You know who you are!
