    Default DTS PlayFi

    I'm trying to figure out how to get various devices connected to Mezzmo via DTS PlayFi - this would be a huge coup for me at home, strictly for music. On my test device (iPhone 8+ with latest updates) the device is identified as Media Link Player Lite, which seems to be how it detects all iGadgets. However, I'm not able to use the PlayFi "baked in" DLNA client. My *guess* is that I need a DTS PlayFi profile... BUT! I'd like this to work on iOS and Android (the Mezzmo app does not show up in DTS PlayFi as a choice for media apps). It would really be splendid to be able to use my various gadgets to control whole house music from Mezzmo.

    Just in case you aren't familiar...

    I have no idea what the Media Player baked in to DTS PlayFi expects, and no idea where to find it.

    Cheers!

    From what I can see PlayFi only works with PlayFi devices but it is able to stream from DLNA servers. The devices themselves only appear to work with the PlayFi client and do not support control using AVTransport which is the DLNA/UPnP method of playing files on a device.

    DTS Play Fi is a unique animal. You stream DLNA to your device, and then the app talks to (and synchronizes) a stream from the application to the device using its own, I'm assuming, proprietary protocol. The only piece that is missing is being able to talk to Mezzmo, which probably requires a specific profile to connect, but will have nothing to do with the devices on the far end, but only the app.

    The DTS Play Fi app should be functionally the same across platforms in how it connect to DLNA servers - it can discover them (discovers Mezzmo just fine), and connect/stream from them to the app (after the app, it doesn't matter what the device is, because by that point it's a DTS Play Fi thing). Twonky, Plex, etc... are certified to work with it, so I'm positive Mezzmo can, as long as it knows how to connect to it.

    Try using the Yamaha RX profile for your Android device that is running the Play Fi app to see if this works.
