Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Playing Remote Music?

Hi everyone,

Lately I have been upgrading couple of my favorite albums into higher Bit-rate. However, that cause space issues on my phone device. I'm not the type of person who only store couple of Albums on the player, I enjoy the flexibility - and this is somehow a problem with big audio files. I was thinking perhaps taking a different approach and have no audio-files on my Android phone (I'm using Neutron as my Player), and instead - keep them on the PC at home, and play them remotely from my phone.

I will be hearing music both at home (and that's I'm assuming won't be a problem because it's a local network), and on the move (4G Cellular network). It's important for me not to lose quality, and not forced to use random streaming (I want to be able to choose which tracks to play).

My Player (Neutron) have couple of options to do so: SMB/CIFS, UPnP/DLNA, FTP, WebDAV, etc. I don't mind spending time on setting up a server, I do however would like to hear from what would be the best interface for my scenario and the needs above.

Thanks! :)
