    Re: Asset uPNP

    I wanted to try this on my WHS.

    Does dBpoweramp have to be installed on the same machine? Or can Asset uPNP be installed stand-alone?

    Re: Asset uPNP

    Stand alone, I will create a WHS install next week which preconfigures as a service and shares the right folders.

    Re: Asset uPNP

    Hello,

    I would second dvdr's approach in organising music in a more "musical" manner.

    My feeling is that most of the music related software was written by and for pop music people, and even the uPNP spec shows that the authors did not necessarily think of classical music or jazz.

    Ideally I would like to be able to browse similar to:

    Mode/Popular
    Mode/Jazz
    Mode/Opera
    Mode/ :
    Mode/Classical
    Mode/Classical/Epoch
    Mode/Classical/Type
    Mode/Classical/Composer
    Mode/Classical/Performer

    Mode is not necessarily Genre, but the way music is browsed. For popular music the approach artist/album/song is sufficient, for Jazz composers and arrangers are as interesting to know as performers.

    In classical music, Epoch would be:
    Epoch/Baroque
    Epoch/ :
    Epoch/Wiener Klassik/
    Epoch/Wiener Klassik/Mozart
    Epoch/Wiener Klassik/Haydn

    In Type I would like to see:

    Type/String Quartett
    Type/Piano Sonata/
    Type/:

    Obviously, the same subtree could appear for busy composers if they apply, i.e. if a set of works can be combined into a logical group:

    Mode/Classical/Composer/Beethoven
    Mode/Classical/Composer/Beethoven/String Quartett
    Mode/Classical/Composer/Beethoven/Piano Sonata

    Going beyond that, if I have several recordings of one sonata:

    ../Beethoven/Piano Sonata/No32 Opus 111/
    ../Beethoven/Piano Sonata/No32 Opus 111/Alfred Brendel
    ../Beethoven/Piano Sonata/No32 Opus 111/Emil Giles

    So ideally, a uPNP server should allow:
    1. tag music beyond id3 tags though some maintenance interface
    2. allow more sophisticated content browse and search.

    Last but not least, the server should run on Linux as this less resource hungry OS is most likely used in embedded devices.

    Cheers.

    Re: Asset uPNP

    I'm pretty excited by this -- most of the uPNP servers out there are iffy at best.

    I tried getting Asset to work with both my PS3 and XBox 360, with Asset running on my Windows Server 2008 box.

    I was able to get the library up and running -- it scanned through my music folders (and pretty quickly, too,with 15K tracks), but when I try to connect with my XBox it tells me the server disconnected, and the PS3 tells me there's a DLNA protocol error.

    Is it supposed to work with these playback clients yet? Is it supposed to work with Windows Server 2008? I'm happy to work with you to debug if/when that makes sense.

    XBox is no go ATM.

    The PS3 - where does it show that error, whilst browsing the artist trees? or before anything shows?

    On the ps3 the error shows up right away after selecting the server, before anything is displayed.

    Hi Spoon.

    I try it with my Netbook at the T+A MP1250R Media Player. It dosen't works. The T+A dont't display this uPNP programm.

    My T+A works with Windows MediaPlayer 11 (no Flac support) and Twonky (only demo).

    Spoon

    again, an extremely valuable update, thanks!
    Especially switching to "streaming instead of temp-converting to wav" is a great update, and the editable music-tree already now matches more of my needs than any other upnp-server has ever been able to give me until now!!!!! Thanks!

    Would you mind giving a hint about AssetUPnPDefinedAudioTypes.txt ?
    There's a list of file-types - would we need to edit that file somehow to match requirements of certain clients?
    I was wondering, whether this was possible, and tried to find that out by myself (with no luck, yet):
    Right now, I need to set "force to wav" to play for example an m4b-file - would that be editable somehow in that configuration file, so that if asset-upnp encounters a non-compliant file it would set itself to "stream to wav"?
    I tried to reach that by adding an entry
    Code:
    .m4b
    http-get:*:audio/m4b:DLNA.ORG_OP=01
    audio/m4b
    (That would be the official mime-type for m4b)
    but it would not work without "force to wav" enabled.


    Thanks again for developing this and your great support!

    Re: Asset uPNP

    This looks very interesting to me.

    I have tried to use it with my Denon AVR-3808CI, but after starting the Asset-UPNP server, the Denon shows a new entry for it:

    Asset UPnP [computername] (Not Authorized)

    So I cannot connect. Is that normal at this beta stage or am I missing something? Would we at some future point expect this to work?

    Have always appreciated your tools, am also looking forward to this one!

    Re: Asset uPNP

    Another significant update:

    Updated to 0.7 beta. Compatibility with Songbook and PlugPlayer (iPod Touch/iPhone) UPnP controllers has been completed.

    Added album art
    Added extra fields for renderer can display album, artist, etc
    Tested compatibility with SongBook & Plug Player
    fix: if no database asset shows tree items

    Download as first message.

    Upgrading from previous beta

    Uninstall Asset UPnP, reboot computer, browse to:

    %appdata%\dBpoweramp\uMediaLibrary\

    and delete all files. Then install new beta.

    It is hoped that a v1.0 release will be completed very early in the New Year. DLNA certification is also being investigated.
