Amazing program for desktop, have used it for a long time and does amazing things, but the issue is that I cannot connect to my pc from this application from my phone. I tried to manually enter my IP address, but it did not work. I tried to restart the application, but it still did not work. I also tried to manually allow the application access in the firewall, but it already had it. So please clarify how to to connect or fix this issue. I am running android 7.0 on Lg v20 and Windows 10 on Dell inspiron 15 7000 series
I could never get it to connect really. A lot of times it would register my computer after searching for awhile but would still not say connected. Now running linux and I can't find any information on what to enable to try to connect it in linux because I only see the json api not the playback api to enable. Any help would be appreciated but right now I can't give a good review. If it connects or some support I would gladly give a great review. It seems good if it works.
Great app! Does exactly what its advertised to. Looks great, has great functionality and is super responsive. Would love to see thumbs up/down functionality added. I love the volume control options from within the app, but have also noticed that changing the volume outside of the app (in lockscreen or via my pebble) would not change the volume of the playback on my PC. This is understandable since the volume of the playback on the PC is not directly linked to the device volume of the controller. Another issue I've noticed is that the device cannot control the playback while in battery saver unless the device is unlocked. I.e. cannot control from my pebble or from lockscreen. Again, this is understandable as battery saver restricts wifi communication when locked. Would love to see workarounds for these tough issues as well playlist/queue control so I can switch playlists from the controller.
The desktop program is great but the app doesn't seem to work or detect any device even after even activate the playback API and insert my computer's IP address. And funny how I can't see any screenshots of this app actually working. Even here. If its just "activate the playback api on the desktop settings" why there isn't any screenshots of it working here?
It's a great app and really does it job. But a few things here and there would make it even better. For example: add Radio, add a browse function and improve the search function. You probably already work on these features or maybe you can't even realize them at all. However if you know what to play it's the best app you can get.
EDIT 2: Recently I gave this software a new try and you guys improved it so much! Really nice work! Working perfectly here now! Keep up the good work!!! -- Original Review: Well... This app doesn't work here. Android 6 + Windows 10 updated. Enabled API on the Desktop player. Both devices on the same subnet. Tried everything (even disabling the windows firewall altogether). Also tried manually inputing my desktop's internal IP address on the app. Nothing worked.. sorry. EDIT: Yep, I enabled JSON & API and used my desktop's internal IP.. in my case 192.168.0.10.. also disabled windows firewall.. I'm gonna try your web socket solution and get back to you.. Thanks for helping me!
