When in flight mode (or just without any internet connection) BubbleUPnP won't start playing music.
My music is entirely stored locally on the phone's internal memory. As soon as I turn off the flight mode, the music playback starts. Technically I am unable to use the App when in an Airplane or in an area without any cell service.
Have I set up something wrong, or what is this issue about?
BubbleUPNP Server's "Apply" buttons in the "Network and Servers" tab are stuck in greyed out state, when trying to edit the network address and credentials.
I've seen this sometimes happen before in the past, but juggling between the tabs (or whatever random UI acrobatics it was, can't remember) somehow always fixed it.
But no luck this time; I'm unable to save the changed credentials at all.
(QNAP NAS with up-to-date everything. Latest BubbleUPNP Server installed, config page accessed with Chrome browser on Android 11.)
Yeah, I figured it must be browser-related and got it working alright on my desktop PC.@Uoppi
I could reproduce this with Chrome on my Pixel 4a running Android 13.
It also happens in Android Firefox, but only for the "login" field !
So really a weird one. This issue does not happen in desktop web browsers.
It seems that the keypress events triggered by modifying these text fields are unreliably notified, or that they are notified but enabling the 'Apply' button is unreliable.
Workaround for now would be to use a desktop browser, or Android Firefox.
I'm having the exact same symptoms with Bubbleupnp (version 18.104.22.168 arm64-v8a). I'm running Bubbleupnp from an Android phone to my renderer, a Pioneer SC-68 receiver. Music files (mp3's with embedded artwork) are stored on the phone. No artwork is displayed. One point of interest: I recently upgraded my phone from a Samsung Galaxy S7 running Android 8, to a Samsung Galaxy S20 running Android 12. Same version of Bubbleupnp on both phones. Same exact problem on both phones. I've been using Bubbleupnp for 8 years, and this is the first time I've run into this issue. If I use Bubbleupnp as a control point, and access the same mp3's stored on other computers via Asset UPnP, I see the artwork when rendered to the Pioneer receiver. Bubbleupnp is a marvelous program. I use it everyday, and I hope this issue gets resolved soon. Many thanks, and cheers!I've been using this app since the very beginning and it is mostly wonderful ... but recently it's failing to display artwork (embedded + folder jpg) and takes forever to add a whole genre to the playlist, maybe 4 or 500 tracks.
My library is on my phone, streaming to an AVR. The odd thing is that if I play from the library on my laptop (Bubbleguum Foobar server) to the same avr (controlled by bubbleupnp on my phone), those problems disappear; all artwork is shown correctly and playlists of 3500 tracks are created in no time - but that means keeping my laptop live to access files I already have on my phone.
Does this sound normal? Would a reinstall help?

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.
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.
Ok, that seems to have fixed it, thanks. I didn't realise I would be rerouted to the sd card if I went via the root Music folder.@aangstrom
Ok, but in the Library tab, are you browsing using the "Music" root folder or another root folder ?
The distinction is important because the "Music" root folder of the Library tab content is populated from the Android media store whose job is to extract tags and album art in a system database accessed by BubbleUPnP.
All music files are stored on the sd card. Folder hierarchy is: /songs-db-mp3/<album-name>/<song>.mp3
Also, I am using the Music root folder from the library tab of Bubbleupnp to get to the music files that are stored on the sd card. Same as I've always done in the past, before I had this issue.
I don't recall if I asked this here but when using Bubble to access my home shares while in my car, I bluetooth the music to my car's entertainment system from my phone. The music and all metadata are sent perfectly to the car but why can't it send album artwork? Bubble gets me the artwork from my network shares so I know I get it to the phone, but the car won't read it. Anything I can do?
One thing I tried to see if the metadata could even be read was putting music in a usb flash drive. That worked fine but that doesn't tell us anything about bluetooth. But it confirms the software in the car can actually read that metadata regardless of its source.
I suppose you're right, the next thing would be to play something via Bluetooth from some other audio source (Spotify, etc) and see if the car takes my bt audio from another source and sees the artwork. The only problem is I don't have ANY streaming music accounts. I don't use them. So it's hard to do that test.
But this is leaving the scope of bubbleupnp support.
Thank you so much for the great app! I can easily watch movies stored in my phone on my DLNA-enabled TV.
A few questions though:
1. Why can I only see it on my TV when both my phone and TV are connected to the same access point (I have a main modem/router and wifi repeater setup in my home)? When the phone is connected to the main modem/router, I can no longer see it on my TV which is connected to the wifi repeater.
2. Do I need to install the additional BubbleUPnP Server aside from the app from Google Playstore? I just want to play the videos stored on my phone to my TV via wifi.
Beta x64 version of Foobar2000 is finally out. I mostly use Fb2K for its great library and your (correct?) UPNP component allowing UPNP access to it through Bubbleupnp as bridge. x64 version needing specific x64 components, a simple question for you : do you plan to release a x64 version of your component ? If yes, any estimation on release date ?
Thank you for your work.
