BubbleUPnP: Streaming Media Made Easy

In the mobile market, applications like Netflix and Pandora have brought streaming media to the forefront of our everyday use. Fully functional, mobile media server appplications though, are few and far between. BubbleUPnP looks to change that.

Designed by XDA Senior Member bubbleguuum, BubbleUPnP is a fully functional UPnP/DLNA control point and a UPnP media renderer. Designed to allow streaming media to and from your Android device, BubbleUPnP allow you to:

•stream music and videos from your UPnP/DLNA Media Server (Twonky, Asset UPnP, any NAS with UPnP, …) to your android device.
Codecs supported for audio: MP3, AAC (without DRM), WMA, Ogg Vorbis (with system decoders) WAV, FLAC, ALAC, LPCM (with custom decoders).Video playback is delagated to an external app (VPlayer highly recommended)
•stream music/videos from your UPnP/DLNA Media Server to your UPnP renderers (software or hardware) on your network with regular playback controls (play, pause, seek, volume, …).
•Internet streaming/downloading over a mobile or WiFi connection with BubbleUPnP Server
•UPnP tethering with BubbleUPnP Server (makes Media Servers from a LAN visible on another LAN)
•UPnP renderer: control audio playback of your android device from another UPnP Control point
•Download tracks, full albums and videos from your Media Server to your android device (with covers if available), to make them available in your favorite Android music and media player
•Now Playing screen with regular playback controls
•Editable playlist to queue tracks for playback
•Load and save playlists

This list continues on, so head on over to the thread here and set it up. Just remember to turn the bass down.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
