Media Source stops playing after ~1 hour

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f3269659d50>

I recently moved a 10-hour brown_noise.mp3 file from my www/ directory to the new media/ folder, and was able to get it to play from there on my Chromecast speakers. I thought everything was going to work perfectly, until I realized my audio randomly quit playing after about an hour and 5 minutes. This happened multiple times. At the same time it quit playing, I get a notification that “Login attempt or request with invalid authentication from localhost”. It seems like the auth expired. Is there any way around this? I want to like the new media folder, but this seems like a poor implementation if you can only play the first hour’s worth of an audio/video file…

I’ve only tried this so for on Chromecast devices; could that be part of my problem?

Am I missing something obvious here?
