Stream ALAC to Yamaha NXN500 Speakers (MusicCast)

KettyKruegerKettyKrueger Posts: 43 Plex Pass

Hi

For some reason, I can't steam ALAC (Apple Lossless) files via DLNA from Plex. I have a pair of Yamaha N-XN500 active speakers that support ALAC (in fact, I'm using a different DLNA client to stream ALAC files right now).

Anyone got any idea?

Thanks

    Any ideas? Sorry to bump this.

    I've tried writing one myself by modifying an existing Yamaha profile but that didn't work, I need professional help!

    I have the same problem: Cannot stream ALAC files from Plex DLNA to Yamaha NX-N500. Other formats work ok.
    Any suggestions from anyone?

    There is no Yamaha profile that comes with Plex so when a Yahama device requests a file that file is sent directly to the device as if it were a simple file transfer.

    If the ALAC file specifically is causing a problem you would need to install/create a DLNA profile for the device that converts the ALAC file to a format that can be played back without issues.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm aware of that but have been unsuccessfully in creating the profile file.

    Do anyone have a file for Yamaha products that I could adapt?
