blaaat posted a topic in DLNAI'm running Emby 18.104.22.168 in a docker container with the container connected directly to the LAN with it's own IP address (via a macvlan). The DLNA plugin is version 22.214.171.124. I've got two Yamaha devices, a WX-030 and a RX-V479. Both are capable of DLNA playback. I'm using the Yamaha MusicCast app on an iPhone or iPad to control playback on those Yamaha devices. I'm currently running both Emby and Plex to compare both in functionality and user experience. What I'd like to do, is play music on the Yamaha devices via DLNA by controlling that via the Yamaha MusicCast app. There is a difference in how Emby reacts to playing music that way on the same devices by using the same MusicCast app compared to how Plex does that. Namely that the music I select via Plex DLNA simply plays on the selected Yamaha device, but on Emby it doesn't. I can see the music on Emby being loaded in the Yamaha device's playlist, including images/artwork, but the music doesn't play. However, when I choose to control the playback to the Yamaha device from the Emby web app, it does play on the selected Yamaha device. But the controls are limited in the Emby web app, I can't see what's currently playing or simply hit "Next/Previous" or modify the playlist queue on the Yamaha device. I use the MusicCast app as follows, I first choose the Server: Then I select an available DLNA server: When I've selected Emby as the desired DLNA server, I can see the content it offers: I have a playlist in Playlists, so I select that and then I see one playlist: When I touch and hold this playlist, I can add it to the queue (wachtrij): Then I can see contents of the playlist in the queue: But... none of the songs will play if I fill the queue on the receiver or WiFi speaker... If I choose Plex as DLNA server, the queue is also filled, but then it's contents is played by the Yamaha device. Now, when I connect to one of the Yamaha devices via Emby's web app or iPhone app, those devices indeed play the music I add to the queue, but only one song! I have attached the server log, in there the following devices are: 192.168.1.218 : the Emby server 192.168.1.15 : my iPhone with the MusicCast app from Yamaha 192.168.1.11 : my laptop browsing Emby's web app 192.168.1.31 : the Yamaha WX-030 WiFi speaker 192.168.1.30 : the Yamaha RX-V479 receiver When I control a Yamaha DLNA device via Emby to play a song, I can see the artwork being displayed in the MusicCast app for the currently playing song. But only one song plays. I'd prefer to be able to select a DLNA capable server from the MusicCast app from Yamaha and control playback, volume, linking to other devices, queue reordering from that app. It seems I can do that with Emby, but it won't play music... Any suggestions? Thanks in advance! embyserver.txt
