    Cast that Audio clip

I have a couple of Google audio casts laying around and I’m thinking run one on the HS server and just do a recorded clip of the TTS verbiage onto a file, select cast that Audio clip, send it to any Chromecast devices on the network from the HS server then resume backdrop. Now you aren’t sending TTS your really casting audio. Sounds crazy but could that work? I know just the lass to record my clips! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    That's not crazy at all. Easy:

    The only problem may be "then resume backdrop" - that I need to check.

    Bigstevep if you use HS webserver to cast local media:

    1. the files should be under root/html/Wave folder, then your URL will be host/Wave (without 'html')
    2. to resume the Backdrop app reset the "Application" - by setting the Application device to "Quit"
    2. but only after the delay greater than your media duration, otherwise it will be interrupted
