BubbleUPnP Server provides new services, many of them running on top of your existing UPnP/DLNA devices:
make various media formats not natively supported by Chromecast playable with transcoding. Works in tandem with Android BubbleUPnP
secure Internet access to your UPnP/DLNA Media Servers content with Android BubbleUPnP and foobar2000.
stream and download your music, video, photos with your Android device from a mobile or WiFi connection with optional transcoding to reduce bandwidth.
no need to sync, to upload to the cloud, to register to an online service
create OpenHome Media Renderers from any UPnP AV or Google Cast renderer (provides on-device playlist, multiple Control Point access to the same renderer)
create an UPnP/DLNA renderer from any Google Cast device
fix issues of UPnP/DLNA Media Servers (discovery issues, broken data, add some audio DLNA compliance) by creating a proxy Media Server
access your UPnP/DLNA Media Servers across different networks
Unless BubbleUPnP Server is used only for use with Chromecast, it requires at least one working UPnP AV Media Server or Media Renderer to do something useful.


Chromecast can only play a handful of supported media formats.
BubbleUPnP Server can:

transcode unsupported format on the fly to make most media playable: MKV, AVI, MOV, WMV, RMVB, TS, FLAC, WMA, ...
make large photos load faster and rotate photos according to EXIF orientation
perform transcoding to limit WiFi bandwidth required and avoid stuttering on the Chromecast
extract embedded subtitles in MKV, MOV, MP4 for display on the Chromecast
If you are using BubbleUPnP Server only with Chromecast, go here.
Internet streaming and downloading

BubbleUPnP Server makes your LAN Media Servers available to Android BubbleUPnP, for streaming over mobile (3G/4G) and WiFi connections, with the following advantages:
Easy to setup: you do not have to modify your Media Servers configuration in any way
Secure: all communication between Android BubbleUPnP and your Media Servers go through BubbleUPnP Server and is password protected. HTTPS is supported.
Network bandwidth efficient: bandwidth is greatly optimized between Android BubbleUPnP and your Media Servers, reducing loading times over mobile networks
Transcoding: BubbleUPnP Server can transcode audio on the fly to MP3, video to H264, and images, to adapt to lower bandwidth usually available on mobile networks
Transcoded downloads: you can download a transcoded version of your tracks for playback on your Android device with any audio player. Useful to download an MP3 version of your FLAC or lossless albums stored on your NAS.
This functionality can also be used on a regular LAN, for example to bypass regular UPnP SSDP device discovery in the rare cases it is not available for whatever reason (blocked by a firewall, UDP multicast disabled at the router level, ...).
Internet UPnP tethering

Using Android BubbleUPnP or BubbleUPnP Tether client, you can make your Media Servers from your home local network visible on another LAN to any UPnP AV devices of this LAN (TV, Control Points, ...).

To illustrate this functionality consider this scenario:

Suppose you have a Twonky server at home (replace Twonky with your favorite Media Server) and you go visit a friend who has a brand new UPnP/DLNA device connected to his stereo and a Windows 7 PC with Window Media Player. Using your Android device and BubbleUPnP you can push music from your Twonky Server to his stereo.

With UPnP tethering you can do the same using the "Play to" functionality of Windows Media Player. In short, your Android device makes your home Twonky server visible to Windows Media Player on your friend's network. This is UPnP tethering.
