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?
