    UPnP/DLNA vs UPnP/DLNA in LMS?

    In LMS Plugins, what's the difference between UPnP/DLNA Media Interface by Andy Grundman and UPnP/DLNA bridge by Phillipe? I read the documentation provided by Phillipe. So, both provide UPnP/DLNA services? One "better" than another? Any reasons to install/run both?

    Thanks!

    The Andy Grundman plugin provides a Upnp/Dlna server interface

    The UpnpBridge plugin turns a renderer into a SB player.

    The Andy Grundman version works well -not sure why it's labeled inactive.

    I couldn't get the other one to even generate a config file and my player never saw it..but it sees the Andy Grundman version with no issues.

    Because they do the opposite so of course your player wonĺt see anything from the bridge because its objective is to make your UPnP player behave as a normal SB box, seen from LMS.

    Andyĺs plugin is letting UPnP players see and use LMS as a regular UPnP server

    When a upnp device sees the LMS with Andy's plugin should LMS be able to see the network player with Philippe's plugin running?

    If this is a UPnP-compliant network *player*, yes it should

    The specifications are not very clear on this.

    Nothing much to do - install & run the plugin (including selecting the binary helper and starting it - see settings section) and unless you have firewall issues, you should see UPnP devices appearing.
