Apps for plying music from my music server
Are there apps for IOS and Android that make it easy to stream music from my local server to Chromecast Audio? If not, how do you control (play, make playlists etc.) music from your local music server? And which hardware do you stream to, if Chromecast Audio is not really an option for this? Thanks.

i use MinimServer for streaming from my server to my phones and laptops, not 100% sure it will work with a chromecast though.

Check out BubbleUPNP for Android. It works with pretty much any upnp server and client, and with Chromecast.

In addition to a DLNA server, you also need to be running BubbleUPnP server in order to serve local audio to Chromecast.

Thanks, I'll give that a try.
If we forget about playing through the Chromecast which phone apps can I use to just play my media server files on my phone?

I've been using Foobar mobile on my android phone without any issues.

Neutron Music Player is an Android app that will play files from SMB network file shares or DLNA servers and will play on the local device or to a Chromecast. It has been a great app once one learns the user interface and how to configure it.
