To push from MMW you need MMW 4.1 beta from the Beta forum.

Hi, bullrinos,

you better focus your attention to following forum instead of this post:
viewforum.php?f=20

The first sticky post tells you how to enable the UPNP server functionality:
viewtopic.php?f=20&t=62906

Let me explain things, as you probably do not know the details.

UPNP is a set of servers and clients for many things. Many routers are controlled by UPNP, and you can even make a light bulb react to UPNP commands if you wish to. DLNA is a subset of UPNP specification that focus into media sharing and playing. Many details are not too strict in the original UPNP specification, so some things are hard to understand. Software developers might understand the spec differently, thus creating trouble. If a device or software passes DLNA certification, it means that it has been tested against other DLNA devices. That is, media sharing and playing should be all right.

So, you can make MediaMonkey act as a "UPNP Media Server", that is, as a device that can share physical files over the network. I do not think that MediaMonkey has been DLNA certified, but it has been tested against popular DLNA clients.

The typical usecase is that the client (TV, console, etc) asks the server for the files. Technically speaking, a client is a UPNP Media Renderer (plays music or video) that can also browse a UPNP Media Server. In this case you need to navigate through your client device interface, for example, through the Smart TV interface.

There is another usecase where you can use a UPNP Control Point device in order to tell the Media Renderer which file to take from the Media Server. Example: you browse your server with an application on the phone, select a song and tell your AVR to play that song.
The first thing that pops up as a UPNP Control Point in Google Play, Android market place, is following application:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... bubbleupnp

I suppose all of this information has confused you by now - I like to be technical sometimes. Take it easy and if you have any other question, please check the UPNP forum.

Edit: I really want this topic to be closed and forgotten into oblivion. After all, I am not mantaining this application anymore.

Hi, everyone,
this script is not maintaned anymore - MM 4.x already has support for UPNP/DLNA serving out of the box. The guys developing MM are doing a great job there, so if you haven't updated, please try the newer versions of MM.
Regards.

Has anyone tried the PS3MediaServer plugin for MediaMonkey in the OP's signature?
I am thinking of giving it a try?

Sorry about that. The patch was merged into the main PS3MediaServer, so the latest beta build (400 at the moment of writting) works with the plugin.
Thanks for reporting the missing link.

On the other side, if you have the UPNP server up and running, the root folder should have folders like "Browse by Album Artist" and the like. No info is taken from MediaMonkey for the root folder. I begin to think that there is something funny with the implementation made in WD TV live. Unfortunately, I do not have that gadget, so I cannot follow on this one. I wonder what it could be...

Hello botijo,

I don't know, how I could see if there is a connection to MM. The Server is running, thats all. I can see the UPNP Server on my WD TV Live, but no content. These days I will try it on a Win XP Notebook.

When you say, there is no connection to my MediaMonkey, what do you mean?
Anyhow, did you try PS3MediaServer + MediaMonkey plugin?

I tried to install the UPNP MM Server on a Win7/64 Bit System. The Server is running and I can see it on my WDTV Live Mediaplayer. But it seems, there is no connection to my MediaMonkey ....

The only solution I found is to stream the Live-Audio to my WD TV Live was the following crazy way:

Mediamonkey 3.2 with installed EDCAST V3 DSP Plugin, streaming to an ICECAST2 Server with 320kbs/MP3. A TVersity Server is the DLNA Server, connected to the ICECast ..... Everything on one PC.
The WD TV live can now contact the TVersity Server ..... :roll: :roll: :roll:

Have fun and I am waiting for MM 4 (beta),

Many thanks.

This is not a noob question, just a question from the inexperienced.

DLNA is a subset of UPnP A/V Media Server & Renderer specification, as these UPnP spec is very vague. It looks like your device is a DLNA client. So yes, you can at least try this UPnP server or the recent plugin I created for PS3MediaServer (both in my signature). If you like to have a single solution for audio and video, just check the PS3MediaServer one (name is misleading). Plus it also does other many things like recoding on the fly - useful if you have your CDs in FLAC format.

This UPnP server is a separate program from MediaMonkey, so it needs to be installed. The program link is filed under Microsoft (I used one of their installers and did not worry much about it) and is physically installed under your username directory - and is fairly well hidden.

Once run, the server announces its availibility through the network, so you do not need to type in anything. At least my Roku Soundbridge, XBMC and Boxee clients did not need to. If needed, your WD Live needs to know the computer's IP.

I have read that MediaMonkey 4, when available, will support this UPnP server thing. Alpha versions (very unstable ones) are supposed to be rolling in two or three months time. So keep an eye on those!

Regards.
