DLNA - Allow no access for devices with no profiles

Hi. Today when some device is connected to the internal network, it can access Emby media server as if was the "Default User" chosen in DLNA > SETTINGS , if the device doesn't have a matching custom profile.

 

Inside that combo box, it lists all Emby users, but it lacks the option to "No access" in this combo, because I want to restrict DLNA access only to already authorized devices.

I don't want guests at my home being able to watch my media without my consentiment.

Hello,

Why don't you create a user "NoAccess" that has access to no media (and that is the default one?)

 

I thought of that but this would be a very non-elegant solution for the problem, and because it´s one more users to appears in any listings (for no reason), and maybe be source of some future problems.

 

I know that would work, but it's not the correct way of denying guests access to DLNA, u understand?

@@Luke, you had no opinion about this last year at the time.

Should I consider it a negative response or you just haven't seen it?

You can already achieve the same thing by manually restricting device access for users.

Not for DLNA.

I can just plug in any device on my network and browser the server on the "default user" as I wish. This is bad with guests in my network.
