Re: Android client app for musicserver op laptop

I nearly stopped searching to a good solution. But
I re-installed Linux Mint 18.3 on my testing laptop. Installed Samba, shared my Music folder with NEMO rightclick.
et Voila, it is shared over the network and I can see it in VLC. Playing the music is wirth gaps, but it works!

Next week next step.

Re: Android client app for musicserver op laptop

You sure that IP address is correct? Maybe you need to restart the Samba on the Linux computer (or the computer itself). You are so right! it is 192.168.178.19. But, Unknown host. I set http://192.168.178.19 and without the http And I can not reach for the shared folder from my other linux laptop. ...

In the config file the workgroup = WORKGROUP I've installed X Plore on the phone and tried to connect to my PC with the shared music folder.

Re: Android client app for musicserver op laptop

Thanks, but nope.
I realize, last time I tried Samba I made some changes in the config file. I will check that with my other computer.

Re: Android client app for musicserver op laptop

Okay, I will give it a try again. The Music folder is on an other harddisk. (/mnt/56dc92ae-bad5-430b-8f65-14a5e1b34a5b/Music) Via NEMO I went to that folder, right-click the mouse and set the folder to SHARE. How can I use a Music app to access that folder on my smartphone? Do I have to provide the ...

On a laptop I installed APlinux with MPD and Cantata, connected to a DAC that is connected to my HIFI stereo. I also run Cantata on LinuxMint 18. Last week...
