Problem with casting to YouTube to TV

I purchased a 4k firestick a few months ago and at first, I had no issue with casting straight from my phone on YouTube to the TV. I'm not sure what happened but my phone just stopped being able to recognise the stick over wifi despite having no problems doing so with the roku downstairs. I now to have connect to YouTube by using a code on my phone. I replaced the roku downstairs with another firestick and I'm still having problems casting from youtube on the phone to the tv unless I use a code. The issue seems to be with any phone that I'm using. Has anyone else faced this problem before?

Yes i have experienced that issue.
Reset your pairing pin and try new connection.
Also disable VPN on your phone while connecting to firestick.
(thats if your running VPN on phone)

I've tried that. Don't know why it's still not detecting.

Just install YouTube on firestick
I have it through the internet browser which I find is great in general. It's just controlling what to watch from my phone is a great feature too.
