Using music playlists on DNLA receiver

ta3keta3ke Posts: 3Members ✭✭

Plex is working well as a Media Server with my new AV receiver. Much better than WMC which was frustratingly slow. I'd like to create and use playlists for music - and have now found how to create them in Plex :). But they are not there when I browse the music library from the receiver. Any ideas how I can turn them on?

    Thanks - will save me a lot of time as well. Very disappointing though.

    This means I'll have to go elsewhere for a music server, which I really don't want to do. So my feature request, like you didn't already have enough to do: Rethink and rewrite so playlists can be used by DLNA clients.
    (I use Denon Heos, a DLNA client. BTW, Heos has a horrible, unwieldy execution of its native playlist function. This must be a difficult thing to program. )

    Another Heos user here. +1 for DLNA playlists.

    I love Plex as a video server, but would also support a feature addition for Plex DLNA support to HEOS. I currently use Twonky as a music server. I have not upgraded to Premium as the Music server aspect is what I use the most and Plex does not function. Still waiting for someone to just get iTunes Playlist to work with HEOS and life will be good.
