DLNA player

Post by girlzdad »

I like the new DLNA player in version 4 and it does a great job of creating a Media Monkey server for view from a DLNA device. But are we able to play directly from the MM player to another DLNA device. For example, in Windows Media Player, you can right click on a playlist, album, etc. and "play to" a device. This is a great feature because then i can I can utilize shuffle, repeat, etc. from MM. It's much easier to navigate and use the MM player because it's so much more flexible.

The player is good though.

You can control it with a third party UPnP controller such as Kinsky, although Kinsky seems a but flaky with all [non Linn] UPnP players I've tried it with.

Windows Media player will do it, but comes with other baggage including lack of FLAC streaming the last time I tried it; MediaMonkey streams that no problem.

To get around the lack of control point I was just creating play lists on Media Monkey and then using my media player to pull those from Media Monkey and Play them.

No, maybe 4.1, maybe not.
