web-based audio library that can stream to DLNA?

Post by daemonix » 09 Feb 2019 19:22

Hi,
At the moment I have all my FLAC in a Synology.
I also have two DLNA streamers (Neet aristream and my Denen AV Amp).

Synology gives you a media server and a really bad 'audio service' which is a webapp for streaming and library management. I tried to use it with my Neet streamer and it didnt work. Its also bad when it comes to searching for things.

So, Im looking for alterantives:
1) with a web interface that can use a existing ynology DLNA db or even build a new one from a shared folder
2) manage, search and play flac etc (like an itunes on web)
3) play the audio through the DNLAs ___not___ "locally" or "via the browser"
4) linux or docker based please! Im a unix guy sorry! :)
Daphile for example is cool but can only use DACs attached to the systems (right????)

Thanks!

Can Twonky be installed on your NAS? I have a Zyxel NAS that runs Twonky for DNLA (and squeeze server for squeezeboxes) and it works OK. Having said that, I moved back to a dedicated server as a proper CPU makes access/searching/rebuilding the index much faster when you have tens of thousands of files.

Ever heard of twonky, ill check. Its linux based as most Nas so might work.

Its a 4core atom and i run plex, 5-6 docker and the synology media server and audio player wihout a problem. Occasionally I record with two ip cameras too.

I could do dedicate but im trying to keep it simple (ive got extra Pi and macminis if needed)

My flacs are around 28000 I think.

Ill get back to you
Cheers

They charge for Twonky now, but if it does what you want it may be worth it.

That should be fast enough :)

When I said dedicated server I should have said micro server and by proper CPU I meant an entry level AMD Turion.

I think Logitech Media Server is the best bet!! configuring now! Volumio is just like a basic HEOS/Denon buildin thingy.
