your correct as windows 10 dose have DLNA so I should be able to do this really easily but iTunes music works through the DLNA on windows 10 ok and I’ve already done thoses basics settings on agreeing to share thoses files on my network but as soon as I select the flac files windows 10 media library wants to cut in and play the flac files as theses files have nothing to do with iTunes they are separate but on the same hard drive .insider9 said:Should be no need as Windows 10 can act as a DLNA server. I've used it with Xbox One in the past.ellisdj said:You might need to setup a library management solution like Minimserver (free) or the similar solution from dbpoweramp can't recall the name think it's free if you have dbpower amp already great CD ripping softwareBlacksabbath25 said:I am just using windows 10 and the files are on my hard drive on my Pc which i have oked my Pc to stream to the yamaha streaming which only shows my itunes music on the yamaha only and not the flac files but do i need a a bit of softwere to make the yamaha see theses files ?Strictly Stereo said:According to the specs, the WXC-50 supports FLAC. What sort of server are you running for the FLAC files? UPnP, a file share or something else?Blacksabbath25 said:I have managed to rip all of my CDs now to flac cd quality onto my Pc hard drive which is easy to do so no point in buying a streamer with built in ripper when I can use my Pc to do it but I was hoping to use my Pc as the main server then passing the info on to a streamer though my network which my Yamaha can do but not been successful yet passing on Flac information to the Yamaha .
but the Yamaha does show everything that I have on my iTunes library on the Yamaha network section but not the flac library and the Yamaha wxc50 shows on my Pc so not sure what to do to make that library to show
point Minimsever at your library point the Yamaha at Minimserver
Sabbath, try following instructions I posted yesterday. That should do it.
windows shows my Yamaha wxc50 , Oppo 203 , Av1070 , Sony Tv so they are all on my network but I still can’t get the Yamaha to play flac files off my PC yet only iTunes which sucks as something must not be right somewhere I would say maybe the windows 10 DLNA is not compatible with the Yamaha streamer that’s my feelings .
