Dlna additional codecs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to add additional codecs for Dlna.  I have most of my CDs ripped in flac format and they do not show up when I connect to the server.  The ones that are mp3 work fine.

    Thanks

  • You can try installing additional codecs from the server desktop, either logging in to the machine using keyboard and monitor, or using a remote desktop connection to the server. I don't guarantee it will work for you, however, and you should bear in mind that anything you do using the desktop is unsupported.

  • i installed the flac codec on my win 7 system and WMP and WMC both see them.  i installed the same codec on the server and WMP can see them.  the dlna service is not serving flac files.

  • Not a complete surprise, I'm afraid, since the DLNA server isn't part of Windows Media Player.
