Hi, everyone,
this script is not maintaned anymore - MM 4.x already has support for UPNP/DLNA serving out of the box. The guys developing MM are doing a great job there, so if you haven't updated, please try the newer versions of MM.
Regards.

Hi, bullrinos,

you better focus your attention to following forum instead of this post:

The first sticky post tells you how to enable the UPNP server functionality:
http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... 20&t=62906

Let me explain things, as you probably do not know the details.

UPNP is a set of servers and clients for many things. Many routers are controlled by UPNP, and you can even make a light bulb react to UPNP commands if you wish to. DLNA is a subset of UPNP specification that focus into media sharing and playing. Many details are not too strict in the original UPNP specification, so some things are hard to understand. Software developers might understand the spec differently, thus creating trouble. If a device or software passes DLNA certification, it means that it has been tested against other DLNA devices. That is, media sharing and playing should be all right.

So, you can make MediaMonkey act as a "UPNP Media Server", that is, as a device that can share physical files over the network. I do not think that MediaMonkey has been DLNA certified, but it has been tested against popular DLNA clients.

The typical usecase is that the client (TV, console, etc) asks the server for the files. Technically speaking, a client is a UPNP Media Renderer (plays music or video) that can also browse a UPNP Media Server. In this case you need to navigate through your client device interface, for example, through the Smart TV interface.

There is another usecase where you can use a UPNP Control Point device in order to tell the Media Renderer which file to take from the Media Server. Example: you browse your server with an application on the phone, select a song and tell your AVR to play that song.
The first thing that pops up as a UPNP Control Point in Google Play, Android market place, is following application:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... bubbleupnp

I suppose all of this information has confused you by now - I like to be technical sometimes. Take it easy and if you have any other question, please check the UPNP forum.

Edit: I really want this topic to be closed and forgotten into oblivion. After all, I am not mantaining this application anymore.

To push from MMW you need MMW 4.1 beta from the Beta forum.
