Title: Advanced search while browsing a server
Post by: michel4audio on 2021-05-13 08:54:04

Am I missing something in the app ?  I can’t search on my server. So far it works only for music stored  on the device.

Thanks for any hint.

This would either require actually indexing remote servers, which I don't think it does, or crawling the entire server every time you perform a search, which it also doesn't do.

Hi,

Indeed, what about caching ? Maybe advanced search is too much. It would be nice to have at least simple search on Album/Artist/...  VLC and Mconnect are offering this.  BTW, I have no idea if upnp server protocol provides support for this.

Cache for how long? How would it know to check for new files? None of the supported protocols support sending notifications of changes, so it would still require periodic full scans.
