View Full Version : use of MiniDLNA

May 20th, 2016, 06:03 AM
Dear all,

I have installed MiniDLNA (latest version) on my raspberryPi. this is recognized fine and works flawless when in a local area network.

To use it out side I have forwarded two ports 1900 and 8200.

In foobar mobile I have configured a user specified UPnp server as http://<name>:8200

In the console I get Error processing user-specified UPnP server: XML error retrying
repeats 2 times then same with giving up.

when pasting http://<name>:8200 in a browser it connects to minidlna with information on media library and connected clients.

I do not know how to continue.

Hi all,

I have the same problem. I try to access the server via Open VPN. I get the same error messages in the console. Actually, I'm not sure which port to use ssdp-1900 or 8200 but it happens with both. I successfully connect via Web browser to 8200.

Same problem on my Foobar Android trying to connect to my Foobar2000 Windows PC server. The one key feature I really wanted to work over WAN, and it won't. Works perfectly on LAN.

But on WAN, in a browser or VLC player I can listen to the playback stream capture fine, just not in Foobar. :(

Don't know what changed over night. But now I'm in work and on the work WiFi everything works as expected. Can see my PC at home, access all my music as if at home. Maybe an issue when using phone's data connection????

That's the problem for me. Just tested it. Doesn't work with my phone's data connection.

With MiniDLNA using URI http://<ip-of-minidlna-server>:8200/rootDesc.xml works. For some reason dns resolution does not work.

Try http://<name>:8200/rootDesc.xml with MiniDLNA.

Yes, in LAN http://<name>:8200/rootDesc.xml with MiniDLNA work, over WAN I can browse my library, but songs do not play. So it is clearly because of Mobile Data Connection.
