DLNA Renderer Acting Strange
« on: October 22, 2013, 10:09:33 pm »

I thought v59 fixed this issue but it has popped back up.

Issue:
Running latest build 19.0.60 on Debian PC as a renderer

Sending audio to the renderer from a Windows PC running latest version of MC.

When renderer is restarted or MC is quit and restarted the Windows PC has trouble establishing communication with the Linux renderer. The Linux renderer's LibraryServer appears just fine on the Windows PC, but the renderer part is hit & miss. Right now the renderer is appearing but when I select it from the Windows PC it disappears from the windows PC's view in MC.

A series of MC restarts on Linux and Windows will eventually fix the issue.

Do you have a very recent build on the windows PC? There was a change made in that area.

I had two windows pcs up at the same time watching what happens when I restart mc on linux. both acted identical.

Maybe you've got another renderer running on the linux box?
Exit MC and do this at a prompt..
netstat -an | grep 1900

I think that's it. With MC running I show two entries. When I quit MC I show one. I'm guessing there should be none if MC isn't running.

Just ran a bunch of tests and this was 100% the issue. My default Debian install running GNOME desktop environment came with quite a few UPnP/DLNA apps and plugins. Once I removed them all seems to be fine.

On mine. I think it was minissdp that was running on 1900.
You'd think that both of the 1900 listeners would each get all of the packets but that doesn't seem to work in practice.
