    Default Chromecast (2020), with Android TV - Cast and DLNA question

    So I got this device Chromecast with Android TV (2020), and it's pretty good unfortunately it still has bad audio support for 'casting' so to cast to the device it usually needs to transcode some video audio into a compatible format and the chromecast ultra profile works fine for most cast tasks..........

    However this chromcast is a huge upgrade since it also has the full Android TV (android 10) operating system so I can use apps like Kodi, Mx player, Mezzmo which support most audio / video configurations so transcoding is not usually required when using these apps, which creates a dilemma for me, since it will use the same Mezzmo profile (ChromeCast Ultra) for all operations (ie it will transcode to hls format for every player.).

    So I guess my question would be would it be possible to create a profile to detect when something is 'Cast' and enable transcoding if needed, and also Detect when something is being played to DLNA / DMR / UPNP (like kodi, mezzmo, bubbleupnp...etc) and disable the cast transcode function? (or something similar)
