Re: new version and 2 User

The user name/password is only for accessing MediaBrowser. However, you can assign a user to a device, and then that device has the restrictions of that user. Naturally, that means that if someone else uses that device it has the same restrictions when using it.

There's really no way to add user authentication to a DLNA player from the server side. there's no way for the server to require the player to log in, and few if any players have the ability to authenticate that way. For instance, on a Roku player you have an extremely simple remote, and the player itself has no virtual keyboard. Apps that require login supply their own virtual keyboard within the app itself. The DLNA app (Roku Media Player) has no such keyboard, so no way it could log into a server. I don't believe it's a DLNA standard requirement to have such a thing.
