Logitech Media Server UPNP Bridge
#1
Has anyone had success playing to Moode player from Logitech Media Server using the upnp bridge plugin? I have spent hours messing around with the plugin settings trying to get it to work but the best I have managed so far is two tracks playing consecutively before playback stops. I can play using mconnect but the ultimate goal is to play via LMS without having to use the Squeezelite renderer.

Seems like a question better suited for the LMS User Forum.

You are right and that was my first port of call. The discussion starts here

I was hoping someone here might have had the same issues and solved them.

So your first post to that thread is #3341; the thread involves both the LMS UPnP Bridge developer and the upmpdcli developer; and 55 posts later (ok, so some other folks' posts got mixed in), at post #3396, you say

Quote:Well it looks like the only issue was me. After erasing the config file and starting again and changing as little as possible everything is somehow working fine. I feel guilty for wasting everyone's time including mine 


Can we assume there is no issue with moOde (actually, with upmpdcli) to be solved?

Whats your usage scenario where you need to use UPnP with LMS?

Yes


Embarrassing to admit but yes. I have no idea why it didn't work at first but resetting the plugin config file to defaults fixed it. It was strange as even volume control wasn't working. All working now, sorry for the noise.

Just that I had been using piCorePlayer for a long time and recently I had seen lots of opinions that mpd sounded better than squeezelite. I tried Moode and I was shocked to find myself agreeing. It doesn't make any sense to me as I haven't seen anyone put forward any reason for the different sound.

I spoke too soon saying the issue had gone away. After a couple of days it reappeared. The developer of the LMS plugin couldn't get it to work either so something strange is happening. As a test I tried Volumio and that doesn't have the same issue.

Moode still doesn't work correctly with the upnpbridge in Logitech Media Server. However if I just install mpd and upmpdcli latest versions on Raspberry OS Buster Lite everything works perfectly. The version of upmpdcli installed with Moode 7.3.0 is quite old so maybe that is the reason. Maybe Moode 7.4.0 will work better.
