Download latest version of plugin 0.99.48 [BETA] [Changelog]
Documentation (work in progress)

Some use cases:

- Use the server to stream audio to a PS3, XBOX360 (using their interface), iPhone (PlugPlayer)
- Push audio from either your local foobar2000 Media Library or another UPnP Media Server to WMP12, an iPhone (PlugPlayer) or another foobar2000 instance on the network.
- Control foobar2000 playback from an iPhone, WMP12, or any other Control Point.
- Browse and play your Media Library and playlists remotely with an Internet connection
- Control a Linn Ds product including making playlists, switching sources, etc.

UPnP AV Media Server
  • expose the foobar2000 Media Library, playlists and "what is currently playing"
  • stream almost any audio format playable by foobar2000. That includes formats generally not supported by most standalone Media Servers, such as formats with CUE files, game music formats, audio files in archives, cd-audio, DTS, HDCD, ...
  • stream album art
  • powerful per device streaming options, to adapt audio format to the capabilities of the remote playing device. conversion to WAV or LPCM, transcoding to mp3, resampling, replaygain, bitdepth conversion, conversion to stereo, DSP chain,...
  • customizable browse tree
  • accessible from the Internet (only from foobar2000 or an iPhone/iTouch with PlugPlayer).
  • works well when accessed from WMP12 (possibly also with WMP11, untested).

Media Server Browser (UPnP Browser)
  • browse remote Media Servers for local playback or remote playback to an UPnP Renderer on the network
  • browse and play music via the Internet from another foo_upnp Media Server, with optional transcoding to mp3 to save bandwidth
  • retrieve album art

Control Point (UPnP Controller)
  • control playback of UPnP Av Media Renderers (similar to Windows7 "Play to" feature)
  • integration with the Media Server to serve locally managed audio
  • specific support Linn Ds product: handle Playlist sources for on-device playlist management and other analog sources (volume control only)

UPnP AV Renderer
  • allow foobar2000 playback be controllable by UPnP Control Points


How to enable logging to troubleshoot problems

Logging can be enabled in File->Preferences->Tools->UPnP->Server->Basic. Logging is mostly useful so I can troubleshoot issues when I don't have the hardware or can't reproduce the issue. If log to file is enabled, a log file called foo_upnp.log is generated in either your foobar install directory or in <Document and settins>/<login>/Application Data/foobar2000. This file is overwritten on each foobar2000 launch. You can also see logging in the foobar2000 console by enabling the relevant option. Log level can be changed. Usually the INFO level gives sufficient information but sometimes finer spammy levels are required to troubleshoot some issues.

foo_upnp problem: UPnP Media Server could not be started. Port 56923 might be in use by another application

foobar2000 (v1.1.15) / foo_upnp (v0.99.40) is started on my computer automatically at boot time.

However, I frequently get the message "UPnP Media Server could not be started. Port 56923 might be in use by another application", which prevents the server from starting.

The interesting thing is, that it's foobar2000/foo_upnp itself that is occupying this port! If I do a "netstat -anob", I get the following:

###
TCP 0.0.0.0:56923 0.0.0.0:0 ABHOEREN 3268
[foobar2000.exe]
###

I assume that it's the foo_upnp server that is occupying this port, because: Which other component of foobar2000 should be doing this instead?

A simple shutdown and restart of foobar2000/foo_upnp usually fixes this kind of situation.

If it's foobar2000/foo_upnp itself that is blocking that port, then foobar2000/foo_upnp should somehow be able to solve this problem without the need of user interaction.

What do you think?


Thank you very much for this great software!

Kind regards,
Johannes
