    I have a nas that has a built in DLNA server and I’m trying to add files to play. I can see all the files through the network browser, but I can’t select them to play. If I can get this to work I’m considering buying the premium version. I’m using a Nexus 6 running stock android 5.0.1. Thanks for any help.

    Can you please tell me some more details about your NAS?

    If your dlna server doesn’t provide the correct media format of your audio files, soundseeder might block the selection. (Images should not be addable to the playlist for example). If you are sure that these files are playable, I can try to implement a workaround for that…

    It’s a Buffalo Linkstation LS-WXL6AF. The files are actually showing in soundseeder, but when i touch on them nothing happens. The files are all MP3 and FLAC. So far I’ve tried reinitializing and restarting the DLNA server, restarting my phone, and clearing cache and data on the app. Still having the same problem of soundseeder seeing the files, but nothing happening when I touch on them.

    Ok, thank you for your help. This seems to be a compatibility issue with your dlna server.
    Can you post a screenshot of the files in the view where they are listed in soundseeder?
    Is the “mime type” displayed in the third line of each title like in the screenshot I’ve attached?

    No, I don’t get the mime type line, it has the genre on the third line.

    Awesome, thank you! I’ll send the email for a beta invite. If I can get this working I’ll definitely be buying the full version, I’ve been looking for an app like this for a while.

    Sorry to resurect a dead thread, but I am having a similar problem.I have a readynas 104 running minidlna. When I try to play flac files over the network, they are refused. I think the issue is that the mimetype is coming up as applicaion/x-flac instead of audio/flac.

    Yes, you are right. Thanks for reporting.
    I’ll unlock flac files and reasign the mime type to audio/flac.

    The next update will be available by the end of the week.

    Hi,

    just tested your app with raspberry pi. Wow, I was looking for something exactly like this. Thats really great work.
    Unfortunately Logoitech Media Server doesn´t work for me as audio source, but Plex works well.
    Don´t know the reason for that.
    Do you plan to integrate Spotify support as well?
    And what about Players for IOS devices?

    Thanks a lot

    Hey nillix.

    Thank you for your feedback!
    Is the Logitech Media Server a software dlna server on your pc or a standalone hardware drive?
    If its free and installable I can try to test it…

    Spotify integration is on my roadmap, but thats not so easy because of some license and api questions. I don’t want my app to be banned from the playstore. 🙂 If there is any progress, I will let you know.
    iOS support is also on the roadmap but I can’t tell you any release dates yet.

    Hi Nillix. Soundseeder is now compatible with Logitech Media Server. Please update to soundseeder v1.5 and let me know if you notice any further issues.

    Thanks for reporting,

    I have a problem with a NAS called Qnap TS-212 with TwonkyMedia 8.2.0.0 installed. The Twonky server works fine on all devices. With SoundSeeder not all files are playable from the Twonky Server. Often there is “playback failed” error.

    Greetings

    Jens
