I'm trying to stream Flac files to my Yamaha Aventage AVR. The AVR supports Flac files. The AVR manual says that I need some kind of server software for sharing Flac files via a DLNA/UPnP on my PC.
What I've done is download all kinds of media servers like J Rivers that are cool but I have no idea how to configure them for this and even if they are the right software. I downloaded a sample of Flac files from HDtracks.com. I had to get the codec so I could play them on my PC using WMP. All the media servers I tried play them because they all have the right codec in them. My AVR sees the Flac files through my network but won't play them.
I finally gave up and loaded the Flac files on a USB stick, stuck it in the front of my AVR and they played perfectly. So now that I've heard them I want to get this going the right way on a PC or some kind of storage devise so I can stream them to the AVR..
So what's the best way to go about this and how do I configure it???
