Music media center with wireless speaker

Mon Jun 05, 2017 7:56 am

Hi all, I'm using a raspberry pi2 with OpenMediaVault to have a personal nas.
I have a LG wireless speaker http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/tvs-ente ... -h7-review and I want to use the raspberry to stream audio from an attached usb hdd to my wireless speaker?
Is it possibile? I red about Volumio but I cannot flash a full image, I need to install manually some software.
Any suggestion?

Does your speaker support DLNA ?
If it does, then here is one scenario :
1] Setup a dlna server on your pi (such as minidlna - if it will work for you then sudo apt-get install minidlna) and configure the server as required.
2] Use an app on your phone - a dlna controller - to ask the Pi to send audio to the speaker. You should see both pop up in your dlna application.

I'm running minidlna for video share, so no problem to setup also music dlna share ;)
The speaker is DLNA compliant.
Do you now an android app I could use to control the DLNA server running on raspberry and use the speaker to play music?

Many thanks.
I checked and also LG MusicFlow app is able to handle music from a remote DLNA server.
I'm still looking for something more dedicated like Volumio to handle my music but miniDlna is still fine (maybe I could try Plex also for music stuff).
