So I have a desktop PC with a Mediatomb server installed.
I want to serve music to my PiMusicBox, but the Pi isn’t locating any media files…
I’ve set the directory to 192.168.1.66, which is the server location… am I missing a step?
I shouldn’t need an app like Bubble, as Mediatomb has (apparently) a renderer built in.
Can anyone shed some light on where I’m going wrong?
Is there a Windows file share at that location? I thought mediatomb was DLNA.
The Mediatomb is on a Linux server. It is DLNA and uPNP
What do you mean you’ve set the directory?
Pimusicbox supports playing music from a Windows share, DLNA is not a Windows share. I don’t think we have any support in the current version for DLNA/upnp servers.
If you want the music stored on mediatomb to play on a particular device, that device must be a DLNA renderer.
Mopidy-dleyna probably does what you want but if I remember correctly it’s not supported in pimusicbox. I can’t remember exactly why off the top of my head.
