Dlna Servers For Mac Os X

  • If you are running on Mac OS X(Mavericks), iMedia Converter for Mac is the alternative. NLNA- What You Need Know - How does DLNA work? There are two main types of DLNA products: DLNA servers, such as PCs or a networked storage device, and DLNA clients. You need one of each to stream content using DLNA.
  • Playback is my favorite DLNA Server for MAC OS X, but I just found out that they closed business and are no longer supporting any of their software as of March 2014. I'm using Plex right now as the best of the two others that I've tried; Plex and XBMC (KODI). I just have problems with Plex not understanding my naming convention for TV show.

UPnP is an alternative name for DNLA, both suck.

There are some DNLA server programs for the Mac but see my comment above. The Roberts manual for the 93i has the following to say on page 37.

Here is a short selection of alternative UPnP server programs, although many others are available:

The Music Player on the sound system can playback audio files in MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC and WAV formats. WMA Lossless files can also be played when using Windows Media Player as the UPnP server. Note that the playback of files encoded using WMA Voice, WMA 10 Professional, and of files which have DRM protection is not supported by the sound system.

When using a UPnP server, the search and selection criteria are determined by the server software, not by the sound system, but typically include searching by Artist, Album and Genre. Many server applications also allow you to access your files according to the folders within which they are stored as well as other criteria. Windows Media Player is less flexible than some other UPnP servers in this regard, but is generally easier to set up.

Please refer to the documentation for your chosen server program for full details of its configuration and usage. Some Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices and some routers include UPnP/DLNA server software.

Dlna Servers For Mac Os X

As a general comment, not all UPnP/DNLA software supports a function called 'transcoding' which means the automatic conversion of a music file to a format compatible with the desired device, so as the RobertsStream 93i does not support Apple Lossless if you try using that and your device does not support that format it may not work. I refer you again to my first comment. 😉 You should therefore have you music in either MP3 or AAC format for best changes of success.
