HOW TO UNMUTE KODI AND CAST KODI TO CHROMECAST

With just a few simple steps, you can easily unmute Kodi and cast Kodi to Chromecast from devices like Android, iOS, PC, Mac to your Google Chromecast.

I. How to unmute Kodi

Whenever you play a video, you may notice a red audio icon in the top right corner of the screen (basically indicating it’s muted).

Now, to fix the audio problem, you need to play some videos in Kodi. When the video is played, get the Player menu (like Play, Pause, Forward, Rewind, etc.)

On the Player menu, click Audio support.

You will be prompted to install Audio.

Now, on the Sound Settings page, drag the Volume slider to 0.0 dB.

After completing the above, click ‘Set as default for all videos.’

Now, you can enjoy the videos with audio in them.

Install the official Google Home app from Google Play Store.

When both apps are installed, open Google Home and tap on the action menu. From there, tap on Cast screen / Audio.
