Still my favourite app in spite of its occasional moodiness.

RE: The control app thread
Hi Stefano...
Thanks for pointing this out.
I wonder if you could help me understand just what I am seeing.
If - on my iPhone or tablet - I touch on a file and then File information, I get something like

http//192.168.0.7:9050/disk/NON-DLNA-OP01-FLAGS0170000.O0$1$148 &c. ...flac

Does this mean that Twonky or my Melco N1A renames the files? I recognise the network address but not what follows.
If I access my Melco via Finder on my Mac, I get something predictable like ....beatles/harddaysnight/andiloveher.flac

Why does it do this? And is the address information that Lumin produces any real value?
I notice that the Linnapp, Kazoo, will provide exactly the same information.
Who would ever need this?
Sorry to be thick, and thanks in advance.

Donuk, York

RE: The control app thread
It seems that Twonky or Melco do rename files, maybe they use a proxy as default, this doesn’t apply to Minimserver where the displayed info is the actual path
The file information can be very useful when you need to find a file/album to change metadata when you realize there is some error, when you have your library spread on multiple hdd it can be a pain find (quickly) the right location

RE: The control app thread
There are actually very few servers that serve the actual filename (accounting for url conventions) which is a real pain as it means any playlists you create in control points can't be converted back to local m3u playlists! I believe it's because they're more compatible.

It seems that Roon has been bought. Wonder what will happen...... They say, no changes.
