Newbie Question : How to send an audio stream to a UPNP device ?
« on: November 12, 2011, 06:33:53 pm »
Dear all,

Perhaps this question has been answered alsewere but I cannot get a clear picture on how to do what I would like to do.  Apologies if this has been discussed.

My use case is very simple (I hope) : I would like to select music to play (either a song or a list) in a touch screen  and then select the render device that will play it.   In my house I have a Sonos system and an Onkyo Receiver plus some other renders (PCs and a WD LiveHub).  Normally I use Windows Media Player to select the songs and then send them to be played in the appropriate device.  Please see the attached Windows Media Player capture screen, in WMP you can choose some media and then instead of playing it locally you can send it to the appropriate render.

My idea is to use Elve in this fashion, so use the Elve madia player to select what files I want to play and then select the render device but I don't see how to do this.

Many Thanks,
Jorge.
