UPnP/DLNA client for Sailfish OS

Following features are implemented:

- Discovery of UPnP/DLNA devices in a local network
- Remote control (Play, Pause, Next, Prev, Seek, Volume up/down)
- Playing local content (Music, Video, Images) on Media Renderer devices
- Playing gPodder's podcasts
- Playing remote content (e.g. internet radio, SomaFM channels, Icecast streams, FOSDEM videos, Bandcamp, TuneIn stations)
- Playing items from Media Servers on Media Renderer devices
- Streaming of local Microphone to Media Renderer devices
- Streaming of audio playback of any local application (similar functionality to pulseaudio-dlna server)
- Screen casting (beta feature)
- Recording of tracks in Icecast streams
- Play queue (play once/repeat options)
- Playlists (saving/opening)
- Sharing content to other devices via UPnP Media Server

This is "work in progress" project in beta stage, so likely contains a number of bugs.

Any comments, issue reports are highly appreciated.

Thanks for usefull app! I can confirm it works great with windows version of foobar2000 + plugins, can be controlled by Jolla.

And please include slovenian (sl_SI) translation, its finished on transifex.

Info => Slovenian translation is included in the recent 2.2.2 release. Thank you for your contibution.

I've just tried the app on an Xperis XA2 with a Samsung C6800, which is about 8 years old. Streaming a video works nicely, but audio (microphone and capture) incurs a lag of about 1 minute. Playing music files directly doesn't work for me, maybe because transcoding would be required. So, thanks for this nice app. Maybe these issues can be solved.

mkiol's picture

Thank you for reporting it. Definitely I can look in to log to find were the issue is. This 1 munute lag is far to much, it should be not more that 10 seconds. I'm suspecting that your device for unknown reason tries to buffer the stream.

Procedure to gather log:

1. start Jupii from command line and redirect all output to a file (e.g. log.txt) :

[nemo@Sailfish ~]$ harbour-jupii &> log.txt

2. test microphone, test capture, test playing files

3. close Jupii, get log file, check if log doesn't contain any sensitive data from your perspective

4. send log to jupii[at]mkiol.net

Would it be possible to stream all audio output from phone to upnp/dlna devices? I heard this was possible on some android app so I thought to ask if it'd be possible for this app too. It would be nice to be able to stream music from Spotify to my speaker system wirelessly, for example.

mkiol's picture

Yes, I belive it is possible. For example pulseaudio-dlna do such things for a desktop and SFOS uses pulse audio server as well. I'm investigating how to port or implement similar functionality in Jupii.

Ingvix's picture

Any news on the matter? I'm a bit eager to have this feature.

mkiol's picture

Please check the latest release => version 2.1.0. The "Audio output" feature enables to capture audio playback generated by any app including web berowser or Android app. It is in "beta" stage and has few bugs but it is usable and quite cool :-)

Ingvix's picture

Quite nice though a bit annoying that it doesn't mute phone speakers and if volume level on the phone is set to 0%, it will mute the streaming as well, though otherwise volume level doesn't seem to effect the streaming volume. I'm guessing this is already on your bug list.

mkiol's picture

Thank you for your tests.

> a bit annoying that it doesn't mute phone speakers

Actually it should be working as you expect it to. When Jupii starts audio capturing, app on the phone should be muted. I've tested it on XperiaX and JollaC. Maybe it is something device-depended? Please check it with only one app opened because sometimes it is a little bit unpredictable from which app audio is captured. I will improve it in the next release.

> if volume level on the phone is set to 0%, it will mute the streaming as well, though otherwise volume level doesn't seem to effect the streaming volume.

Yes, I'm aware of it. Maybe I will be able to find a solution.

You can't imagine how much I love the the new streaming feature. That was one of few reasons I 've kept a rooted android on an old nexus 7 tablet. Thank you so much for this!

Sadly, I can reproduce the behaviour described above. I'm about to add an issue with more info, because I think it's the appropriate place to do that.

cheers!

mkiol's picture

Thank you for letting me know. In the recent update (version 2.1.1) issue should be fixed.

mkiol's picture

It is on my TO-DO list. I promise I'll try to work on it but cannot guarantee any timeline.

carlosgonz's picture

wow! beautiful layout & desing v1.9.4. please take my money jupii : )

mkiol's picture

Thanks for the kind words and for your contibution to Spanish translation!

carlosgonz's picture

my pleasure.

objectifnul's picture

Looks promising, congratulations. Still in active development? (volume control, support of .pls playlists, etc.)

Kabouik's picture

Any plans to add the possibility to stream content on the phone from another device, like a computer running pulseaudio-dlna? The phone could then become a great receiver for headphones (larger music database, movies with properly set audio sync on the player, etc.).

 

I'll try Donnie too, see if it is compatible with pulseaudio-dlna.

mkiol's picture

The scenario you've described is not supported - sorry :-(. Jupii only plays local content on the remote UPnP devices like Smart speaker or TV - not the opposite way.

Actually, I'm investigating pulseaudio-dlna project right but for different use case i.e. not for receiving stream but for sending pa-dlna stream directly from Sailfish device to other UPnP media renderer.

The app stopped working again, maybe the terminal output is useful?

mkiol's picture

Yes, yes and yes. Logs from terminal output would be extremely useful to identify the cause of the issue.  Can you please gather logs and send to Jupii's support email address => jupii[at]mkiol.net

247's picture

Ok, i will try to, sorry for the late answer...

247's picture

Tried the app again, and to my surprise it worked like a charm, the only problem is that with most of the videos the 360 tells me format is not supported (while mp4 should be) is this something that can be solved or is just an error xbox side?

247's picture

Ms should have changed something as neither last update is able to find my xbox 360...thanks anyway...

247's picture

Already tried with no luck...will try with this mornig jupii udate... :)

247's picture

Unfortunately i cannot send you any log...jupii does not find my 360 anymore...3 days ago my xbox received an update...maybe is due to that?

mkiol's picture

Sorry, I have no exerience with xbox.. :/

For device discovery Jupii uses standard UPnP procedure based on SSDP protocol. Maybe support for UPnP was disabled with the latest xbox update? Please try to enable "All devices visibled" and search once again.

Will try...thanks...
