I have my oppo 103d connected to a htpc via ethernet. my goal is to push my flac's from the HTPC to the oppo, while using an app (ios) to control playback.
any server/method i tried (including serviio, kodi, smb and ntfs on the htpc) is not working properly, whether i am using the OPPO app of any other dlna apps i tried (like Creation 5).
sometimes the Oppo "freezes", sometimes it does not display the correct song title and doesn't display tracks at all...
can you recommend a good and reliable and "smooth working" solution achieve my goal??
With my 103, I use the free Windows BubbleUPnP Server, which acts as an intermediary between a DLNA server (I use the $20 Twonky, which has the twin virtues of being able to be set to autoupdate its index when new files are added and of displaying album art while browsing, not just while playing) and various control point apps, like the $5 Android BubbleUPnP or an iOs control point.
BubbleUPnP Server not only can turn normal DLNA renderers into Open Home renderers, with volume control in the control point and the ability to continue to advance while the control point is disconnected, but it can also let you use the Android app, or Foobar 2000 with the free Foo_UPnP plugin (which the same guy also wrote) to access and play music from your library remotely over the net.
Since the Oppo won't play gaplessly over DLNA, I also have my Yamaha RX-A1030 AVR set up in BubbleUPnP Server as a Gapless Open Home renderer, for playing gapless stereo recordings. (Unfortunately, it plays multichannel FLACs as simple stereo, so I end up using different renderers for different materials, since the Oppo renders 5.1 FLACs as 5.1, and can render videos this way, while the AVR doesn't render video at all.)
