I've had BubbleUPnP Server installed on my PC for the longest time. Recently I have noticed the Android app is not detecting it anymore. I have tried reinstalling, stop/starting the service, but Android simply isn't detecting the server. Any idea how to proceed from here?
Been using BubbleUPnP for years with few problems. Recently changed my server/renderer setup and now I'm getting occasional, random clicking and popping noises when playing music. Sometimes plays clean for a while and then I'll hear the clicks almost like what you'd hear on a vinyl record. The recordings are all perfectly clean digital files. Clicks don't happen in the same place during a track, they're quite random and can be spaced out by 5 or 10 minutes then can come in sporadic single clicks or groups.
Here's the setup:
Windows 10 on a laptop running either Windows Media Player or Foobar2000 as the renderer, connected to my AVR via HDMI. Server is Serviio running on another Windows 10 desktop PC which is where the music files are. Both the laptop and PC have wired network connections. BubbleUPnP is running on a Pixel 3.
Now here's the kicker. If I play tracks on the laptop directly in either WMP or Foobar I get no clicks. I only get the clicks when using BubbleUPnP on my phone to play through the laptop. I've also tried configuring both WMP and Foobar on the laptop as the server and renderer, with the files still being on the PC hard drive, but no change, still get clicks when using BubbleUPnP on the Pixel, so Serviio isn't the culprit. Also, if I use the Foobar remote control app on the Pixel to control Foobar on the laptop I get no clicks. Originally I had the BubbleUPnP server running on the PC but when the clicks started happening I eventually stopped it to see if that was the issue, but no change, if I use BubbleUPnP on the Pixel to play tracks through the laptop I get clicks.
I've tried changing the priority of WMP and Foobar to both "High" and "Realtime" on the laptop, and also stopped as many background apps and services as possible but no change. The wifi connection to the Pixel is rock solid, I'm 15 ft from the antenna with clear line of sight and get over 400 Mbps internet speed, so its not a weak wifi signal on the phone.
Any advice or suggestions? If a log file would help I can send one. Thanks.
Previously, when I navigated to Cloud > Google Music > Stations the app would show a reverse chronological list of all GPM stations. If I wanted to add a new station and make it available to BubbleUPnP, I just needed to create/start a station in the official GPM app, then go back to B-UPnP and reload the station list. Because the list was reverse chronological, the new station would then be at the top of the list. In the past few months, the station list doesn't appear to be in any recognizable order and I can't use the previously working technique to add station. In fact, I'm not sure the station list is updating at all, but the list is so large it would be difficult to go through the entire list to look for new additions. Is there a solution?
Difficult to say. Can you send me a log file playing a problematic track to your renderer until you hear the glitches, so I can see what exactly is being sent to the renderer ? See first post of this topic for logging instructions.
Looking into it.
EDIT: confirm it will be fixed in next app update, ordered from most recent station to least recent, exactly as on the web Google Music site in Music Library > Stations > Recent Stations.
The current order is in modified order: from most recently modified station to less recent, hence the apparent random order.
When Chromecast transcoding is enabled and Android Bubble UPnP sends an image to Chromecast, BubbleUPnP Server transcodes and caches (to file) that image to 1080p so the Chromecast loads it faster (and even faster on subsequent access due to the caching). So something is definitely not working here. I just tested on my setup and it works though.
Can you send me ([email protected]) the BubbleUPnP Server log file (if you installed the package: /root/.bubbleupnpserver/BubbleUPnPServer.log.0, otherwise in the install folder) ,
just after attempting to send an image to Chromecast with transcoding enabled.
Chromecast integrated and dongle should behave the same in theory but not always true in practice:
- Dongle does not run on Android and uses FFmpeg for decoding
- Integrated runs on Android and uses Android video decoding APIs
Also both are not on the same firmware, do not use the same Chrome version (not sure what Integrated Chromecast uses, maybe the stock Android Chrome based WebView ?)
So difficult to say what's going on on the the Integrated Chromecast but surely a combination of the above and a decoding issue regarding aspect ratio.
Or the WebView not playing nice. Who knows.
Maybe you can look if you can workaround it using the aspect ratio controls of your TV using its remote.
Assuming you want to access Kodi via BubbleUPnP Server from a remote network via the Internet (mobile, other WiFi), you must make sure that
- port 58050 and 58051 (if connecting via https) are not blocked by a firewall on your Ubuntu machine (and router)
- on your WiFi router facing the Internet, these ports are redirected to the LAN ip address of your Ubuntu machine (on the same ports)
=> If both conditions are met, the 'Internet connectivity test' should pass in the BubbleUPnP Server configuration UI.
For checking in Android BubbleUPnP the server presence, are you looking at More > Chromecast transcoding, or something else ?
- first check that the server is running properly by going to its web config interface
- verify that the firewall on your PC isnot blocking incoming connections on local ports from within the LAN for process BubbleUPnPServer.exe (if using the Windows service installer)
- if possible, check if running BubbleUPnP on another Android device detects it
- check if Android BubbleUPnP detects other UPnP devices running on your PC. You can install Serviio for testing if necessary
@bubbleguuum I'm on SandHook again (it's less stable on my ROM but it does not overheat) and BubbleUPnP 3.4.2 does not detect it
