I've been using Plex for years now, primarily because:
A) It'll play back my lossless CD rips (FLAC via Exact Audio Copy) without transcode
B) It supports CCA, which I use for Whole-Home-Audio.
C) I have a lifetime Plex Pass
But Plex has failed me (for music, at least) in a few ways over the last few years, not the least of which for being:
1) No software EQ (or at least none that I can find; if I'm missing it someone please correct me), which a "premium local media streamer" ought to support, IMO
2) I've tried-and-failed twice to backup and save my watch states and playlists prior to uninstalling and reinstalling PMS... both times I've lost my (extensive) music playlists and had to start over.
Forgive me for what is probably a dumb question, but I spent a little time on Youtube trying to find this answer before posting, but what would it take to get BubbleUPnP up and running?
I've already got:
-FLAC files stored on a NAS (QNAP TS-431+)
-An always on "HTPC/Media Server" (primarily for Plex, Steam, and NVidia Gamestream)
- Four CCA's for whole-home-audio.
- Android phone and Android tablet as preferred means to control/cast to CCAs when using whole home audio.
Is there something I need to install to either my Win10 Desktop or my QNAP, prior to/in addition to downloading the BubbleUPnP to my Android phone?
Will BubbleUPnP support either EQ or Playlists (or both)? If yes to EQ, can the EQ be on a CCA-by-CCA-basis (maybe I want to tune down the high end just a touch on my basement AVR/CCA but I don't want that applied universally to my living room AVR or Patio powered monitors)?
