From the official BubbleUPnP website (circa 20 Nov 2019), BubbleUPnP Server provides:

  • Secure and bandwidth friendly Internet access to your home UPnP/DLNA Media Servers
  • OpenHome compatibility to your UPnP/DLNA Media Renderers
  • Optimized transcoding to Chromecast for playing non natively supported formats
  • Ability to make your Chromecast an UPnP/DLNA renderer for broad compatibility with UPnP/DLNA control software
  • Ability to fix some issues in UPnP/DLNA Media Servers by creating proxies

It can run on any machine of your local network where Java 7 or higher is available (Java 8+ recommended).

Some functionality requires Android BubbleUPnP while other functionality is entirely standalone.

BubbleUPnP Server is not an UPnP/DLNA media server: it does not index your media.


Support added from Blind Testing U8 (1.1.8) onwards. For amd64 (64 bits) and i686 (32 bits). RaspberryPi edition unknown.
