BubbleUPnP is a popular streaming software that allows you to stream all types of media, from your Android smartphone to the DLNA compatible media device. The app works perfectly with devices like Amazon Fire TV Stick, Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles and Chromecast. By connecting to these devices, you can stream all media stored locally on your smartphone. You can also stream content stored on cloud services like Google Drive, Box, Dropbox and OneDrive. BubbleUPnP is an excellent option if you want to play multimedia content on other devices, especially Chromecast. With the option of various configurations, you can customize the interface according to your convenience.
What is BubbleUPnP?
The BubbleUPnP DLNA application provides some of the advanced features, such as;
- streams media that Chromecast does not support natively.
- provides secure Internet access to the UPnP / DLNA media server content via the BubbleUPnP pro app for Android.
- create OpenHome media renderers from any UPnP AV or Chromecast renderer
- When creating a proxy media server, it solves the problems of UPnP / DLNA media servers.
- access your UPnP / DLNA media servers across multiple networks
The power of a modern mobile device is really incredible. Not only can we play some fiendishly clever games on them, but they can also play various types of media files with perfect clarity and, in most cases, in glorious high definition. Thanks to DLNA’s continued development and enhancements, which started life as a pain to begin with, we can now use the impressive skills of our mobile devices to transmit content to and from various sources in our digitally connected homes.
While this combination of increasingly powerful mobile devices and media connection technology is a very impressive mix, with the help of BubbleUPnP we can now find something close to the perfect solution for using our phones or tablets to meet all media needs, wherever you wander.
BubbleUPnP is an application made up of some distinct elements. On the one hand, it will find shared media from any DLNA certified device, such as a NAS drive, and will allow playback on the mobile device on which it is installed. Another element is the ability to send media to other players connected to the network in your home. So, basically, you can select the media from a networked device and select which other device you want it to play on.
It is also an incredibly simple application to use, just search for the DLNA device on the currently connected network, search for shared folders until you find the media you are interested in and finally touch the media in question and BubbleUPnP will start playing. However, by default, it does not transcode the video in real time. To address this, BubbleUPnP features locally installed players, capable of handling codec and video media, and offers you the option to choose which to play the content.
In addition, you can choose to download media from a NAS device or other DLNA device to your phone’s SD card, so you can take the media with you when you leave the comfort of your home network.
There are many streaming and player apps, and BubbleUPnP pro is just one of them. However, it’s really good: easy to use, fast enough to catch up with streaming media and offer a server-based version – along with free and paid versions for client versions (the latter removes the ads that appear at the top of the screen).
Overall, it’s a good addition to the many apps you probably already have, and if you’re seriously considering making all of your media accessible at home, BubbleUPnP pro will certainly do an admirable job. We find it much better, in many ways, than the ES File Explorer, which we used in the past. In addition, it does not have the annoying gift of taking long breaks between music tracks, as ES File Explorer does when playing source network storage stored online or locally.
