I put a folder.jpg in each folder (using mp3tag), but still no success.
I've been searching on the web without success and the Forum search seems to be broken (getting only error messages).

Has anyone a hint where to continue?

It is probable that the media server running on this box is very basic and does not support album art.
There's no solution unless using a media server that supports it.

You can continue current playback to a new renderer via: navigation drawer > 3-dot menu on the renderer you want to play to > Continue playback here.

"Result Quality: Trash, all across the board. The video looks like a very fast CQ30+ x264/CPU rip. They're garbage, and the files are even larger than the x264/CPU equivalents."

Thanks for that interesting link.

Thank You for the quick reply.
Is there a way to test this? I have some experience in networking, XML and so on, but no skills regarding UPnP.

TIA

Marshmellow
I'm using marshmallow 6.0.1 on non-nexus device; the HTC One A9

Xposed is installed
App and Module is installed (stable and beta have been tried)
Phone is (systemless) rooted

I am unable to use the audio cast feature to cast my audio to my friends ps4
When I go to the folder 'audio cast' on the server from my ps4, it says "there is no playable media. I've tried both streaming formats and auto.

Is audio cast to ps4 not possible (it doesn't show up in the renderer list, but the media player app on the ps4 does see the server, and can play files off of it)? Or is it because I'm on marshmallow?

I can provide logcats, edit files on my phone, etc. And am willing to help get this issue resolved

Audio Cast on PS4 is not possible because (unlike the PS3 and Xboxes) the PS4 does not
support either WAV or LPCM.

I get the pop up message "added to playlist", but it isn't and refuses to play them. The same setup/operation works perfectly with MP3 files.

Anybody else having this issue? I'd buy the full version of this app in heartbeat if this issue could be resolved.

Any one?

Thanks again for fixing silent server start issue on DSM 5.2 on Synology DS212j.
Server works now, but being a little noob in Linux I'm having terrible difficulties compiling the right ffmpeg.
CutePoisonX script compiles it without mp3 encoding, so both audio and video transcoding are disabled.
Somehow custom script configuration doesn't work either. And I think it could be not the only missing library.
Could you point me to the right ffmpeg compilation guide or another kind of solution?

Chromecast Audio, Vorbis, Flac and UPNP server
The new Chromecast Audio can play Ogg Vorbis and FLAC files natively.
I have Plex server hosting a large quantity of vorbis, FLAC and video files.
BubbleUPNP gives an error "Cannot play: media not natively supported by Chromecast. See settings > Chromecast to enable transcoding".
I have no interest in transcoding and Chromecast Audio natively supports these formats anyway.

If I launch ES File Explorer I can find the same files on a windows file share and play it via BubbleUPNP and it plays.

I think ES file explorer takes the file share and proxies it into a http link which is sent to BubbleUPNP which sends this to Chromecast. This is no different to how UPNP passes media, so why does BubbleUPNP complain about native supported formats?

I think it may be related to MIME type nonsense. I have to disable MIME type checking to play the same media on another UPNP media renderer I have, which works well. Chromecast does not have the option to disable MIME type checking.

Can BubbleUPNP be set to ignore the MIME type for Chromecast or be updated to accept these MIME types for the new Chromecast Audio?

Thanks,

AP

Might be similar to the issue I am having. Still not sure about the cause yet.
