DLNA client via browser?

Tue Jul 10, 2018 10:32 am

Hi all,
i have some questions for you.

For some years I've been using raspberry as my audio streaming server.
This is my situation:
1 - on my raspberry i've installed minidlna server (i'm using it only for mp3/flac files)
2 - my renderer is my Marantz hifi
3 - using Android app BubbleUpnp i can select my music from the raspberry and i can listen it from my hifi.

Here are my maybe stupid questions :)

1 - is there an equivalent app for Ipad ( something like BubbleUpnp)
2 - if I did not want to use any apps ... is there a way to manage my music catalogue, select music and send to my hifi using a browser interface? in this way i can avoid using any sort of app (Android or Ios)

sorry for too many questions and for my english.

Switch over to Plex Media server on your Raspberry pi, it has a web interface. Kodi also has a web interface, but Plex is a little easier to use in regards to managing your library.

Install piCoreplayer on the RPi. Use its menu to install Logitech Media Server. In LMS install Philippe's UPnP/DLNA bridge plugin.

Control from a browser.

(If you have any Chromecasts, also install Philippe's Castbridge plugin.)
