DLNA Streaming from Emby server: won't play files

Post by LemurTech » Sun Apr 10, 2016 1:29 pm

The configuration:

+ Server (A): Windows 2012 R2 with latest Emby release, serving audio files from local storage over port 8096.
+ Client (B): Windows 10 with latest MediaMonkey build, attempting to play using DLNA.

The problem: MediaMonkey on (B) sees Emby server and can list all files (with seemingly correct path info), but won't play them.

Windows Media Player on (B) can also see Emby server, but can play all files. Browser clients on (B) can play Emby-streamed audio files. A different PC on same home network shows the same problem.

Please, gurus, any ideas?

P.S. I have tried disabling the Windows firewall on either side. No dice. Also FYI, in MediaMonkey, the file paths appear as "http://192.168.2.110:8096/audio/[some long code]/stream.mp3?params=[some long code]. The server IP and port are correct. Metadata and album covers are also coming in correctly.

Which version of MediaMonkey and what file type is Emby serving?

The capture the attempt in a debug log (step 4b) and send the log to support: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... ?f=20&t=69

Quick question. Could this simply be a codec issue? I installed the K-lite pack some time ago...
