    Accessing 3rd Party Plugin functionality e.g. BBC iPlayer via UPnP

    I have enabled UPnP on LMS and can see it in Foobar and access my music library, however I would really like to access the BBC iPlayer via Foobar exposed via UPnP, is this possible?

    No.
    These plugins only create menus, no structure data.
    UPnP can’t use menus, only tracks and streams.

    Are you using the Squeeze2upnp plugin ?

    I'm a big vague about the role of Foobar in your context.

    I know some users have used the above plugin to play BBCiPlayer stream on upnp clients - I don't know what UI was used.

    I think what he wants to do is use LMS as a server for UPnP devices using a UPnP controller and that doesn’t work with plugins.
    What you can do is use UPnPBridge to play to a UPnP device from the LMS UI, that might work with some plugin streams (probably not all of them)

    Yes I want to use LMS via UPnP to access the BBC iPlayer source links via Foobar or any other UPnP controller, ultimately a proof of concept for the DCS Network Bridge that supports UPnP as a renderer, however a significant amount of my listening is on the BBC listen again service via the BBC iplayer plugin.

    As pippin says - menus can't be accessed from a upnp controller.
