I have newbie question and have navigated the forums extensively but can’t find an answer I can fully understand…
I simply would like to stream my music stored on wdmycloud mirror to my android phone in a simple way. I have used the wd my cloud app but it seems its capabilities are rather limited in terms of file formats etc.
Apparently, something like twonky and/or bubbleupnp are a good solution. Hence my questions…
- is the combo twonky / bubbleupnp a good solution? if not, what would you suggest?
- then what app to use on an android phone to access this?
many thanks in advance
The formats you can play are determined by your phone, not the app; e.g. if your phone can only play 5 formats and you want to play a 6th that your phone can’t play, you are stuck (unless you can find an add-on app to play it.).
For Android devices, Bubble/UPnP or Avia are two free apps I recommend.
ok thanks. actually my question was more on the setup of bubbleupnp and/or twonky in layman terms.
Twonky ia likely installed/set up on your MyCloud, be sure DNLA streaming is on in the Dashboard. Check your MCM user manual for details.
I use the twonky-server on my MCM and either “Ginkgo DLNA” as client app in my Android phone or “Fritz!Media” (german app from AVM) on my Android tablet because Ginkgo doesn’t work there.
