MM for android no longer works

Post by RavishingRickRude »

Hi.

As of last week I cannot get the android app to cast to my stereo.

When choosing and casting a song using UPnP, it will only play or pause the current song in the PC queue, not the one selected from the android phone, so is now useless as a remote. Very annoying.

Is there an alternative remote app? is this a known issue?

Thanks

(Network bridge using UPnP. Files stored locally on the PC)
PC app - MM 5.0.4.2693
MediaMonkey for android version 2.0.0.1173

Hi,
Can you please explain in Step By step how it worked before and what is different now.

Also I am not sure what you meant with "so is now useless as a remote"?

Are you referring to https://mmremote.net/ ?

Also it could be very useful to upgrade to latest version at https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... 86639&sd=d

Hi Peke.

The android phone Im using as a remote (Media Monkey for Android, not MM remote) no longer plays the song I choose.
I can sewlect a song on the droid, chose "play" or "pause", but it will only play or pause the song curently on the PC library, not the one chosen on the phone. Im using UPnP with all files on local PC.

I only need the android to funtion as a remote control.

This is where the confusion stems from. MMA is not capable of remote control. You can stream from an DLNA Server, you can stream to a DLNA client, and you can do both at the same time. However you can't control MMW from MMA. So, we're not sure what you were doing before.

OK, well thank for correcting the language I was using. I was using the term "remote" colloquially, as any normal person would.

Does anyone know what I should do to fix this issue?
Its worked the way I described in the OP for about 3 years

^ bumping this.
Anyone have any ideas?

Is MM Remote for android worth the small cost? does the free version work OK?
