UPnP MediaRenderer output | discussion
Description: This component presents any UPnP MediaRenderer devices present on your home network as foobar2000 output devices. Link: http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_out_upnp Successfully tested so far with: * Linn DS players * Samsung TV * WDTV [limited success, WDTV firmware is extremely buggy] * BubbleUPnP * foo_upnp * dBpowramp uPlayer * Kodi * Sony TV Tested unsuccessfully: * Windows Media Player's renderer [doesn't work - attempts to preload whole LPCM stream?] Update (beta 2): * Better error message when attempting to run on pre-1.2 fb2k * Prevented the component from running on Windows XP (where it crashes due to Windows XP bugs) * No functional changes Update (beta 3): * Fixed rare random crash when shutting down. * No functional changes. Update (beta 4) * Now compatible with Windows XP * Option to log debug information to foobar2000 console * Improved compatibility with specific renderers * Now sets title of the stream (but no actual song titles) Update (beta 6) * Fixed Kodi incompatibility, possibly other renderers too. Update (beta 7) * Lagging renderer no longer stalls foobar2000 when stopping playback or manually changing tracks. * Worked around a reported incompatibility with certain Windows configurations (most likely firewall/anti-virus related) causing our stream to be presented with a localhost IP. Nope, still doesn't work as of beta 7. Get the latest. Updates (beta 8-15) * Attempting to work-around system-specific bugs [work in progress] * Improved compatibility with Sony devices Incompatibility with various devices will be addressed in later updates.
