UPnP

Post by Niche » Tue Apr 17, 2018 4:59 pm

Hello,

Please, may I request some help?

I have a NAS drive which I store all my music on.

To access my music and to catalogue my collection I use Music Collector (https://www.collectorz.com/music)
The Music collector links to the Music on my NAS and by clicking on a play button in the database you can choose to play an album or track.

Normally this would open the default media player and play the selection.

Now I would like to take this one step further and use MediaMonkey as my default player and use it to stream UPnP to my music system which is Compatible.

I understand MediaMonkey can do this but I am unable to set up MediaMonkey to do this any advice or directions would be appreciated as I am not technical but can follow instructions.

Thank you in advance,

Mark

You can use Media Servers in MediaMonkey to directly access the DLNA server on the NAS: http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... ervers/4.0

Refer to the NAS documentation on how to setup a DLNA server. Then open the Media Server node in MediaMonkey and the server on the NAS should be shown there.

Sorry, that has not worked or I have done something wrong.

I was unable to find the instructions you suggested.

What I want to do is use mediamonkey as my default media player which will send the music I am playing to my Naim Mu-so using UPnP / DLNA.

(https://www.naimaudio.com/mu-so?gclid=E ... gIFXfD_BwE)

I do not want Mediamonkey to access my NAS I want Music collector to do that and forward the selection on to Musicmonkey as the default player and then forwards it on to my mu-so.

Sorry, I am not making myself clear.

Thank you for your help.

That would only work if Music Collector features a DLNA Server.

Otherwise just scan the files into MediaMonkey from the File Share on the NAS and use right click on Player in MediaMonkey > Choose Player to select your DLNA client to play to.
