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.1. March 2015 at 18:51 #721
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.1.

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?1. March 2015 at 21:34 #725
No, I don’t get the mime type line, it has the genre on the third line.

Ok. Thanks you! This will be fixed in the next release.
If you like, you can join my beta test team and test the new version tomorrow. Please send me a mail to email@example.com and I’ll send you an invitation.
Else you will get the update by the end of the week.

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.11. May 2015 at 13:05 #785agnogenicParticipant
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.12. May 2015 at 22:46 #787
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.11. June 2015 at 22:52 #828nillixParticipant
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 lot11. June 2015 at 23:17 #829
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.13. June 2015 at 19:56 #847nillixParticipant
the logitech media server is installed on my linux based NAS.
Yes, its free and you can simple install it on linux, windows and mac…
looking forward to hear from your updates!

I’ve found the problem, it will be fixed with the next update 🙂30. June 2015 at 10:14 #859
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 184.108.40.206 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.
