In MM4 you can use MM as a DLNA/UPnP server and client. You can use Windows Play To to play songs to MM (some issues noted here: http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=7777), but MM doesn't have the ability to Play To other devices (discussed here: http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=7090).

Hello again,

Last detail : Win 7 'Play to' doesn't work from a network drive ... It would really be marvellous when MM can do ( :P especially when all my stuff is on such drive !)

Thx in advance to the whole MM team

+1 on adding "Play To".

I use MM because it is an awesome control point, locally. Now that I've expanded my HT/AV setup, I'd love to use it as the control point for my new Denon receiver.

Even better would be the ability to use a smartphone/tablet as control point to Play via MM To a DLNA device.

I would really enjoy a play to option in MediaMonkey. I have a Sonos set, which works with WMP 12, but i don't need to tell you guys WMP cannot compete with MM when it comes to controlling and playing your music library... There are probably a lot of priorities and requests for the new MM, but DLNA compatibility surely has my vote!

MediaMonkey 4 already does DLNA. On any DLNA capable device you can browse your MediaMonkey Library and play it. Play To isn't yet available, but this only adds functionality so you can select files in MediaMonkey itself and select them for playback on a DLNA capable device.

Furthermore MediaMonkey 4 can play from DLNA servers and be controlled.

Thanks Lowlander, I tried MM4 but Sonos does not communicate well with other DLNA-servers... Hopefully one of the smart people here will create something;)

Exactly what I'm looking for....an Android app to play remotely songs, possibly with MM.... did you find something?
Basically android app would make the phone as a remote control for MM....

Lowlander, maybe I was mistaken: I'm looking for a way to control mediamonkey running on my pc, from my Android phone. Ideally from the phone it should be possible to select a playlist, skip,start stop, adjust volume...

It's my understanding (maybe I'm wrong) that the listed BubbleUPnP and UPnPlay can do that.

Is there any way to have a 'Play To' action in MM4 (like in Win7, option is given on mp3 files) that could adress any renderer ? Or is there already & I simply couldn't find :D
No, maybe in the future but not for 4.0.

Too bad. Dealbreaker for me. WMplayer will have to do for the time being.
