This installer installs BubbleUPnP Server for 64-bit Intel macs. It has not been tested under Apple Silicon (M1) with Rosetta 2 emulation.
IMPORTANT if running under macOS Sierra or higher #
Look at /etc/hosts and make sure your computer local hostname is listed:
cat /etc/hosts 127.0.0.1 <hostname>.local ::1 <hostname>.local
Where <hostname> is your local hostname. If these 2 lines are missing, edit the file as root and add them. Without this, BubbleUPnP Server will run but will be much slower that normal.
First, verify that Java 8 or higher is installed on your Mac.
To install BubbleUPnP Server, start a Terminal window, paste the command below, and follow instructions (it will first ask for your admin password):
bash -c 'curl -s https://bubblesoftapps.com/bubbleupnpserver/mac_install.sh | sudo bash -'
Once installation is complete, BubbleUPnP Server is running as a Launch Daemon process that is started on boot. You can configure it with the Launchpad icon or via any web browser pointing to the server.
Controlling the server #
Using the command line #
You can stop the server with:
sudo launchctl stop bubbleupnpserver
And start it with:
sudo launchctl start bubbleupnpserver
If you wish to disable the server (it will not start on boot):
sudo launchctl unload -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/bubbleupnpserver.plist
And to reenable it with:
sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/bubbleupnpserver.plist
Using a GUI #
You can also do all of the above with free utility LaunchControl. BubbleUPnP Server is found in the “Global Daemons” category.
