For those with problems such as "does not work" - can I suggest that you try the foo_upnp component?http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_upnpThis component has a gazillion options and individual options for different upnp clients. If you experiment with this component you will discover what works and what does not with your upnp client. Then you will be able to provide better information for problem diagnosis. As I said earlier, Peter's component appears to be streaming only - and maybe your client does not support this?
PS As requested above - foo_upnp does support transcoding.
I may miss the point : why build this component as the excellent foo_upnp component already exists with many more capabilities ?

This is many degrees simpler and more specific to use than the foo_upnp renderer.2. If this can be dependably used with most devices without issue, parts of it could be integrated into the core, which could then be exposed to other components via API.
thanks for response. Ok, I guess a less functional solution can always be called simpler to use Upnp streaming is not as universal at it claims to be. Make it work with many devices is a challenge. Bubblegumm spent a lot of time and energy into that for foo_upnp. Hope Peter will do the same.The side benefit seems to be that output device selection is now exposed in the foobar API. @bsauvage: switch to android with upnp control app, you can select the media server (foo_upnp for example) and the renderer (your upnp player of choice). You control the playback from the app. These apps act as universal upnp remote.foo_remote is a simple remote control for foobar. It benefits from the output device selection now available.What would really be fun and new, is to be able to play music in scync on multiple Upnp players at the same time.
I tried with my TV Bravia 46HX850 as render, work very good, but only can stream/play MP3 files, FLAC do not work (TV native can't read this format) but would be nice to add something to transcode/encode in fly to MP3.
Is anyone actually reading the feedback in this thread?
