Yes, I had a similar problem http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... 20&t=64584

I also run a plugin that exports my MM playlists as folders full of symbolic links which is then scanned by SubSonic. That works well but I'd like to have a native MM solution.

You didn't say on which platform you wanted to run the client. FWIW, at least on Android, I've tried almost everything I can find - and uPnPlay is the only one I've seen that allows me to define a WAN connection from outside of my LAN. You just long-press one of your existing internal uPnP server connections, and then select 'clone WAN connection'. That brings up an edit window to change the internal IP address (192.168.x.y) to your external address. It automatically adds the necessary port number and the 'DeviceDescription.xml'.

I'm still having some trouble getting this to work despite having set up the required port forwarding on my router. I'm also concerned about security in opening up direct outside uPnP access to my server, although I've defined pretty narrow IP restrictions in the router forwarding. As a result, for "outside world" access I'm testing both PLEX (which is based on the XBMC source) and AudioGalaxy as free alternatives. Unfortunately, neither of these are uPnP/DLNA compliant - they each have their own servers which run on your PC. You connect via their custom clients or, alternatively, from a Web brower (for PLEX only). After logging into their servers, you're linked through to your own server without security issues.

Would be nice if there was a similar solution available that used an intermediary server, but supporting standard UpNp/DLNA servers and clients instead of something totally custom, because the MM server is so much faster with my huge collection. (In fact, with PLEX I'm getting time-out errors before its feeble server is even able to create and send a list of artists to the client.)

What good sources have you all found to be a client(s) for MM if going this way through DNLA?

Thanks much.

You can't tag over DLNA.

If I don't go that route because of some of the limitations, what about the tagging in and out of MM as well as the other questions/concerns?

Thanks much.

You can stream using DLNA outside of the network, but you'll need a client that can be directed to the MediaMonkey location: http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... ervers/4.0

Sockso and/or Streeme for MM?

Realized that I cannot stream MM even with monkey server unless I setup a vpn to access outside of my lan. Then starting researching and founds both sockso and streeme. As these are set, I am wondering why nothing like this has made it into MM? I have used MM for years and tell everyone else to as well. With everything going mobile and people expecting that, just seems logical without third-party.

Anyhow, since I have to go the route with 3rd party for now, do any of you use Sockso, Streeme, or even SubSonic (first two seem better). I guess since technically, any id3 edits made to mp3 (or other files within the MM library are saved to the id3 and these 3rd party streamers can read and even manipulate, then nothing more should be needed there, correct?

Any other input on this from the community here, both devs and users?
Thanks much.
