Too bad it does require a desktop computer, unless you have a smart NAS capable of running its ARM server. Unlike true UPnP apps recommended above; e.g., nPlayer.

Speaking of nPlayer, I've managed to fix its bug I've referred to above; see my just-posted article here at MR: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1569007

How easy is nPlayer to setup? Looking at the site it is in Korean I think, and I do not see any directions on how to set it up on your iOS device in English.

It's very easy as the app itself is in English and I've also elaborated on its UPnP support in my UPnP bible. However, it's not available right now - see my just-posted article at http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=17129358 for more info.

Ahhh thank you for the update! As soon as it hits again I will pick it up!

Does nPlayer allow you to rate songs (i.e. 1 to 5 stars)?

Bummer. Does any iPad app let you rate songs you're playing from a DLNA/UPnP device? (Whether from app store or cydia?)

XBMC does. You'll get it from cydia.
XBMC is also better than nPlayer and free.

Sorry for digging up an old thread.

I wouldn't state that. There indeed are areas where XBMC is better at (e.g, playing back for example more special WMA audio) but, generally, nPlayer (and other AppStore players capable of true hardware playback) are to be preferred.

Not sure what's wrong with a "bump", though I wanted to share I ended up getting nplayer because it supports (among dlna), WEBDAV & SMB.

If you are a Windows Server Essentials shop, with nplayer you get native (SMB) and remote (WebDAV) access to your home folders (provided you know how to setup those, which is pretty easy w/WSE, that is!).

Hi guys, nPlayer sounds good but for me it's too feature-rich. I only need a reliable photo viewer app that can connect to my DLNA-enabled NAS. Any recommendations?
