JRiver as a media server

I’m just wondering if anyone has tried JRiver Media Centre software as a server? I believe that it includes a DLNA server, renderer and controller.
If you are using, I would like to know how it performs before diving in and trying myself.

Hi, DLNA render not work fine in the devices based on linkplay modules.


Hi juanantofb,

Thanks for your reply, but please elaborate.

Please excuse my ignorance but I understand that a UPnP/DLNA plugin is required on Foobar to enable it to work with the system, so why wouldn’t JRiver work if the UPnP/DLNA is a built in feature?

What am I missing?


Hi, sorry for my english.

foobar work as server and renderer.

If you want play music in jriber or foobar, via dlna in linkplay devices, you experiment problems, cut of begin of song, problem to change song manually, etc…

I recomend you, that use foobar as render installing the adecuate addon.

Or think in a rpi with one of the distros dedicated exclusibe to music.

I has been tryed several devices with A31, A68, and A98 LinkPlay modules, none of all work fine as dlna renderer.


Thanks for your reply. I’m already using Foobar as my music server on a win10 PC, it’s okay, but just looking for alternatives that I might use.

I would be interested to hear what systems other users are employing?
