    I rarely play remotely due to the size of my home - It's a small place but Mediamonkey, A commercial, but specialised media manager - a DBMS is under the skin, but it serves DLNA clients anywhere on my network with music, (and video) using enough information to ID the track, album, genre, artist,etc

    My main TV and 5.1 system in the lounge is connected directly to my main system so act as the base output device

    I also have a basic file tree of Artist - Album - track - album folder names include the issue date to allow sort by album - Artists/Group are sorted alphabetically by Surname/group name, so I can navigate by File manager if I wish, but MM is more efficient

    I have a media player in the bedroom that reads tags [Metadata] this allows me to, sort music by the tags for playback, in addition to worldwide radio DAB+

    But to be honest I simply run multiple copies of mediamonkey on my various PCs and load the tracks from my main system over the network, or use a phone or tablet to draw down tracks over the network. all the maintenance is performed on the main system.

    I've also got Google home players in each room ( except the bathroom as I do not have suitable power sockets there), which means, I can use Google Music or spotify to play music with voice commands anywhere - Two of the devices have screens so YouTube is an option too

    Hi there
    @Barman58

    Off now for early night drinking and watching Champions League REAL FOOTBALL (with the Round Ball!!).


    Nice reply but a bit different from my setup

    always appreciate your answers though .

    nos da !!!!! ( I think that's welsh -- at least Google says it is !!)

    I enjoy 6 Nations Rugby as well as proper football (the one played with the round ball where people actually KICK the thing --unlike the American version which just looks like a "Military" version of Rugby League !!!

    US "Football" IMO is where I think the idea is just to smash the opponents into oblivion -- No Skill or finesse --just Brute Force !!!.

    Actually I quite like Cricket !!! not much chance of it here but I think parts of Wales (Glamorgan) have a decent Cricket team --- I enjoy the 20-20 though --lot of fun.

    Cheers

    You should take a look at MediaMonkey yourself, it supports FLAC fully plus re-coding to MP3 for older portable players, Tags for composer, Conductor, involved people even International Standard Recording Code, and five custom tags to add your own Full Ripping and Writing, creating Virtual CDs which can be written to Disk or Stick. It's designed for use by AudioPhiles and handles 100,000+ track databases with ease

    Nice skinnable player with skins available for free

    Free to try and most options are fully operable for free, some of the ripping/writing and other higher functions around £40+ for lifetime licence

    For the "case-sensitive" issue, another very big problem for me.
    I just tried to rename "ABC.rtf" "abc.rtf", and the name remains unchanged⁠—"ABC.rtf".
