Chromecast Audio support (It's a different device than a regular Chromecast)

Doggcatcher does not recognize Chomecast Audio (this thing) as a device.

If the only thing you have on your network is a Chromecast Audio, Doggcatcher won't see it at all.
If you have a regular Chromecast and a Chromecast Audio on the network, Doggcatcher will show you the Chromecast icon, and you can select the Chromecast Audio device, but the sound will continue to play from the phone's speakers anyway.

More info here.

I can find and connect to

I can find and connect to Chromecast Audio (CCA), however, while connected to the CCA, audio does not cast, and instead continue to play though my device. I downloaded Pocket Casts & BeyondPod to see if CCA would only cast audio streams from "Official" audio apps, but I was able to cast properly from both.

So this wasn't an application

So this wasn't an application change, I had to register my app to declare that it supports cast audio.

This is working for me now, can you try it out?
