QNAP - ASSET UPNP & TWONKY ?

Hi, Firstly I'd like to say I'm a big fan of your videos and easy tutorials. Id like some advice on the below if your able to help please? I have a qnap nas 453mini 4 bay currently with 2x 6Tb in raid1. Im mainly using it for music storage from my CD collection, all ripped in FLAC. I listen to it streaming off a Cambridge CXN streamer and will only read files when Twonky is enabled on the qnap. But I recently discovered another type from a company called dbpoweramp. They have one called Asset UPnP (DLNA compatible. I've downloaded a trial but really in Two minds what to use. From your knowledge are you able to tell me whats best for me to use? Hope the above is clear enough ? thank you

Yes, all DLNA compatible streamers will require this protocol to be also enabled on a NAS.

Here is how to enable it on a Qnap https://nascompares.com/answer/enabling-dlna-media-server-on-qnap/

Once that is done, your NAS shared media should be discoverable in your local network including your TVs and streamers.


I hope this helps.
