    Default How do I Push Music to Windows 10

    I have a Sony Blu Ray player in my home theater stack. I can open up Mezzmo on Android, select the blu ray player as output, and push a movie to the blu ray player. Works perfect. Music however, does not play. I have a feeling my blu ray player isn't 100% compatible with DLNA, as it was built in 2010.

    I have set up my Mezzmo server on a windows 10 PC in my home theater. It is connected to the home theater via HDMI.

    My home theater has a projector, not an LCD screen. I don't want to have to turn the projector on every time I want to play music. I want to be able to browse the Mezzmo server on my android tablet or a different windows computer and send music to play on the Windows 10 computer running Mezzmo, so that it plays through my receiver. I can't seem to figure out how to do it. If I connect with a Windows laptop or tablet via Remote Desktop, it trys to play on my local PC instead of the Mezzmo PC. If I open it up on my Android Mezzmo client, it doesn't see a DLNA client on the Mezzmo machine to send the music to.

    I think I need a DLNA client on the windows PC that the Mezzmo server can identify and stream to, but I don't know where to get a compliant DLNA client for windows 10.

    What the easiest way to push music from my Mezzmo library to play on the Mezzmo PC without physically touching the Mezzmo PC?

    Try Kodi . You can push audio or video to it. I use it for whole house audio where I run it on a headless Raspberry Pi and have the output connected to an amplifier that has speakers throughout the house connected. I push to it from my Android tablet. It runs on Windows 10 and other operating systems. I also run it on my personal PC to play music and videos from my Mezzmo server.

    Thanks!

    I downloaded and installed KODI. After turning on a few options in KODI it allowed me to push music from Mezzmo, which is exactly the behavior I was looking for, so thank you for setting me on the right path!

    I've immediately run into a problem where it only plays the music for a few moments (less than 30 seconds) and stops. I will see if I can tinker with settings to fix that.
