I suggest you ...

Move Chromecast button global

You should have Chromecast button visible everywhere, so we could connect to it before playing the video, and properly disconnect from it after playing the videos. (like Youtube, Daliymotion, ... )

More details :
When you reach the end of the playlist, you can no more open the player view, and thus you can't disconnect from Chromecast anymore.
Also, we must first start playing a video to connect to the Chromecast : this leads to first seconds of video being played on the device, that's annoying on short videos.

        You don't have to start local playback at all.
        You just have to press on the Chromecast button and connect to your cc, then as soon as you press on the play button playback will start on your Chromecast

        I completely agree. Right now it has to play for couple of seconds on my phone before i can cast it. Very annoying.
