Control whats played on UPnP device via my PC?

Post by Hdhntr23 » Thu Nov 02, 2017 7:39 pm

Hey guys is it possible to "drive" what's played on my UPnP device (In this case an Amazon Fire TV) as I stream MM from my pc... from my pc? Or, better said, to "drive" from my pc but have it still broadcast to the UPnP?

Thanks!

Also, apologies if this has been covered before.

Right click Player > Choose Player and select your DLNA client. Then the MediaMonkey Now Playing/Player controls the playback on the DLNA client.

When I right click in the player and select choose player, the only option that shows is the internal player. I would post a screenshot but I can't figure that out either.

Do you have a UPnP/DLNA media app running on the FireTV?

Im using Kodi on FireTV.

I go to: Kodi/music/files/upnpmediamonkeymypc

From there I can control it with my remote.

Any App would need to advertise itself as a Player, this may not be the case for Kodi or something the Firestick doesn't support.

You need to set Kodi to make itself available as a DMR

Settings/Services/UPnP/DLNA/Allow remote control via UPnP
