I have setup Foobar on windows 10 as a server using the UPnP component downloaded from foobar website.
I'm able to play tracks from iPhone and android devices over the internet. But I'm not able to move the playback cursor to a specific part (the playback cursor is not available)
Please check this screenshot: https://ibb.co/WFNwsWj
However, when using foobar as a media server (over my home Local network not internet) the playback cursor is available and working just fine. check this screenshot: https://ibb.co/2FxzCVf
Is there a way to make the cursor available when streaming over the internet?
Foobar on Windows version: 1.6.11 (latest)
Foobar on iPhone: Latest
I'm not sure if this is how it should behave or if it's a technical issue. Let me know if i should post this in another Sub-board.
I mean how to fast forward (seek)
I had a similar problem using Bubbleupnp Server. You can try to open Firewall port UDP 17 incoming to Foobar2000.
Found the root cause:
- copying the UI element doesn't always work as expected as it is single instance
- seeking in FLAC files streamed as FLAC can give "Unsupported file format" errors
- some audio formats do not support HTTP seeking (ogg)
I'm streaming Flac. mp3 worked fine.
There is an mp3 transcoder in the settings on pc under streaming profiles. however it doesn't seem to work on my pc.
