Audio Station - Link to remote folder

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to use a remote folder in audio station. Actually, I have xpenoogy in a virtual machine in hyperv, and i want dsm to index a remote folder of musics.

I'm not interesting by duplicate all my music, and i don't want to put all my music in this virtual machine. So i'm looking to make a link in audio staion. I mounted the remote folder in file station but ... audio station does'nt index this folder.

I hope you understand what i'm looking for. I already tried to make a link in cmd on the sm virtual machine but i didn't succeded.

 

I hope you will help, because i'd like to use audio station on my smartphone.

 

thank you.

have you looked in the Media Server settings and the Indexed folders?

You might need to explicitly add the mounted folder to the index list and set as music

Indeed, I checked. Music folder is marked as music file type.

When i go in Audio Station, application ask me to put some music in file station ...

It seems that file station do not recognize remote files as it's own files.

So i cannot read music in audio station.

 

But IF i go in file station, I can right click and read music. But it's not usefull for m because i wanna read musics on my smartphone.

Well, you're right, that would be better for me to use a media server software.

As you adviced me, I installed minimserver and "configured" it.

 

But it's harder on smartphone side. With wifi, most of applications work.

But over internet ... harder. I tried dlna player, plex, bubbleupnp, ... I spent a lot of time on it. Seriously.

 

Bubble upnp seems to be better because you can make different choices : which player (smartphone or tv by example) and which library (locally, minimserver or other dlna sources).

But we need bubble server + minim server. Actually, bubble server redirect to minimserver.

This is the only solution that worked (even if in 4g, that is soooooo long, so more than ds audio, even if i have a 100mb internet connexion)

 

No loading problem with DS audio when i used it. I have a windows server os, maybe that could help ?

 

So I'm still looking for a good (free) solution. If I could only keep minim server and have a simple and good software on smartphone , which works good over 4G... Any Ideas ??? I'm just looking to do the same as audio station or deezer.

Thank you
