I recently got a Vizio M series TV and am having problems with casting. Seems to be only an issue with Chromecast because I don't have this problem when casting to my Xbox, LG TV or Samsung TV. I have to keep my screen on or else I'll loose the ability to control playback like rewind, fast forward etc and videos will randomly stop playing. I can't figure out why it keeps doing this.
I will totally try this. Can't tell you how much of a lifesaver Bubble has been. Both in the car to access our SMB music shares and at home to get past Sonos' maximum library capacity and their lack of 24-bit support. Basically we have more audio files than what Sonos' app will permit you to sync. So we just use Bubble and send to the Sonos as a renderer and then there is no 24-bit or library size problem.@tinpanalley
Does this happen only when the screen is off ?
In any case, make sure to apply instructions for your device on https://dontkillmyapp.com.
If the problem persists, please send me a log file triggering the problem (play a song until next one does not play), following instructions in the first post of this topic.
That was the first thing I checked. Never had the problem until I started using the Vizio TV. It works fine on my Firestick, Xbox, LG and Samsung tvs.
Cover image for my singles 'albums' still doesn't work correctly.
I compile singles tracks into an 'album' called Singles, each track has the cover embedded in the MP3 tag of the single it came from. When I play it on my Android phone using the latest BubbleUpnp, the now playing screen displays the cover of the first track and never changes it, whereas the correct cover is displayed in Playlist view and in the mini player in the pull down shade on Android.
That's because albums are supposed to have constant album art (same cover for all tracks). There is no album you can buy with different cover per track. There's playlists for that.
Anyways, you can try enabling More > Gear icon > Now Playing > Force cover refresh.
I created these compilation albums years before playlists existed and would love to be able to view the covers as I've created them.
I already had that option checked, it's not refreshing the Now Playing screen with each file. As I said, the correct cover is displayed in the mini-player, though.
Congratulations for this App, is really a very nice piece of software that has given me the possibility to enjoy music in my system. I'd like to make a request.
I use BBUPNP to stream music from Qobuz into a raspberry. When I search a song the first thing listed is "Exact Matches" which is usually a list of unknown artists and after dozens of them I can see the Qobuz list which I consider has the most appropriate list of songs, or at list closer to what I wanted.
Example, I search for "Bring on the night" and the first thing I are irrelevant results and I have to scroll down a lot of those undesired artists until I find Qobuz section where I see "Bring on the night" by The Police as first result.
Is it possible to change that in settings or could you consider change it in the App?
Yes that picture dates back from the original Chromecast dongle release in 2014!
I agree something more up to date would be better.
Maybe just the cast symbol would do it (same as the one displayed in the Now Playing tab).
Clear playlist does just that: clear the whole playlist, which includes stopping whatever is playing.
Maybe I'll add a popup asking if the currently playing item (if any) should be cleared.
Try it in the "Tracks:Title" search results folder. I'm attaching a screenshot.
I'm using the latest version of JRiver on Windows 10 to serve up the files. Thumbnails are correct within JRiver itself. All files are stored in a 'Singles' folder below the artist name.@Mr. Odd
The only reason I can think of is that the thumbnail image URL associated to each track is the individual track cover, while the full res cover image URL associated to each track is identical across all tracks.
Which Library is holding this album ? What are the intermediate folder you browse in the Library tab to load that album folder ?
Any idea why my Philips tv (55OLED804) keeps re-appearing in BubbleUPnP Android's renderer list, even though it should remain hidden?
After a while both the tv's UPnP renderer and built-in Chromecast always make a comeback. After re-hiding them, they disappear for some time. This is specially annoying, because BubbleUPnP auto-selects the tv instead of my HTPC's foobar2000 renderer.
I guess I could circumvent it by setting BubbleUPnP to auto-select the last active renderer (i.e., foobar2000), but I also sometimes use the UAPP renderer, so it's not the best solution.
I've found a little issue when enlarging album artwork served by MinimServer. If the first disc of a multidisc album contains a %discsubtitle% tag and that disc has custom artwork, then when clicking on the album artwork in the header section when viewing the album's track listing it actually displays an enlarged version of the artwork related to the first disc. See the attached image to give some context.
