    Hello,

    anybody out there who can recommend an app,
    - that can stream my music files from my NAS(Netgear readynas DUO) - with the iPad to my speaker with airplay?

    I bought Buzz Player the other day, it works "OK", but can only play 1 song at a time, then i need to find the new song afterwards manually.. i want an option like a jukebox like this way....

    IF i want to play another song WHEN song1 is done, then i can queue song2, song3 ect ect. from the NAS BUT if there aint any songs in queue...
    then just play random songs from the NAS

    does anybody know a good app for this issue?
    AS a sidenote, the NAS got the option as a "iTunes server" but that wont change the issue - according to looaaads of googling, correct me - if i am wrong :)

    Regards

    Hi,
    Did you find a solution? I've got exactly the same requirements...

    Even if you create a playlist you can only add songs that where recently played from the network, but you can't browse and add directly from the network...

    What is the speaker you are referring to?

    You are wanting to do the following, just so I am clear:

    NAS--->iPAD----|Airplay|----->wireless speaker system utilizing Airplay

    Correct?

    Correct!

    With queue/ random play when no songs left in queue :)

    I'm wondering if iPeng can do it. Can your NAS run Squeezebox Server? I don't have a NAS, but I am running a Linux box with Squeezebox Server and Squeezeplay. I'll test the Airplay functionality and get back to you.
