First, open Google Chrome on your Windows, Mac, or Linux PC. Then, type chrome://flags into the address bar and hit the Enter key.

go to the chrome flags page

Next, use the search box to find a flag titled “Load Media Router Component Extension.”

Select the drop-down menu for the flag and choose “Disabled.”

Now, use the search box again to find a flag titled “Cast Media Route Provider” and disable it in the same way.

After you change the flag status, Chrome will ask you to restart the browser to apply the changes. Click the “Relaunch” button at the bottom of the screen.

After Chrome restarts, you won’t see the Chromecast icon appear on videos anymore, although it may briefly show up and then vanish. Again, this method doesn’t seem to work for everyone, but it’s worth a try.
