    Re: Can't connect to UPnP server from outside LAN

    When manually specifying UPnP servers, the specified URL should be pointing at a UPnP device description XML.

    With foo_upnp, the URL looks like this: http://<login>@<host>:<port>/DeviceDescription.xml

    When foobar2000 mobile is fed a URL without the /DeviceDescription.xml and fails to load it, it proceeds to try one with /DeviceDescription.xml appended. However, for mysterious reasons, this fails for some people. The issue is being investigated.

    Hello
    I only made an account for this post, so...

    foobar mobile app is searching for the xml file with the configuration. So i connected with the foobar desktop application and wireshark showed that the url to the xml file is SuperMediaServer/DeviceDescription.xml (In the combination with minidlna and bubbleupnp, not sure if this is always the same)
    So to connect with foobar mobile use this format: http://user:pw@ip_or_hostname:58050/...escription.xml.

    Hello

    Connect with foobar desktop and use wireshark to get the url of the xml file. On bubbleupnp it is (in combination with minidlna, i am not sure if this can be different with other services) /SuperMediaServer/DeviceDescription.xml.
    So to connect use http://user:pw@ip_or_hostname:58050/...escription.xml

    Re: Can't connect to UPnP server from outside LAN

    I'm able to connect using the above method (w/ BubbleUPnP and MediaMonkey) but I get an error whenever I try to play a track ("Playback Error: Network Error On: [URL]"). Looks like the URL listed doesn't have a username / password, if that matters. Any idea why this might be the case and anything I can do to fix it?
