    Default Android - Mezzmo app does not find Rygel media render

    I use Rygel ( https://wiki.gnome.org/action/show/P...redirect=Rygel ) for my linux PC, I setup Rygel to act as a MediaRenderer which then streams to VLC (configured to use external player), on the Mezzmo PC it finds the Server fine it says "Play to VLC media player (<linuxip>)".

    However the Android Mezzmo app does not find the Rygel server and doesn't show it in the list, so I can't select the Renderer for playback, I tried BubbleUPNP and that can find it ok, so most likely this is a bug in Android Mezzmo hopefully this can be fixed.

    My Rygel is basically configured like this

    Hi,
    I suspect that Rygel may list itself as Mediaserver:2 and not Mediaserver:1 so Mezzmo will not find it. We will test here to see if this is the case and add support for the Mezzmo app to find servers listed as Mediaserver:2

    We have confirmed that the rygel server is using MediaServer:2 as it's service identifier, the rygel.conf file has a setting to force it to use MediaServer:1 based upon the user agent but we could not get this to work. We will add support to the app to search for servers that use MediaServer:2.

    Thanks,
    I tried the beta (.13) but it still didn't find the rygel play to renderer in mezzmo, since Rygel can act as a Media Server and Renderer maybe something is still missing in the Renderer detection?

    Yes it is not currently looking for MediaRenderer:2 or MediaRenderer:3 so this might be the problem, we will add support for these too.
