Re: Music streaming

You can use any DLNA capable player to stream your media. You don't have to use the MediaBrowser function of Serviio. Displaying the embedded cover art is a function of the player. I don't think Serviio has anything to say about that one way or the other. I know using one of my Roku players for music I had cover art for some but not all media. Probably dependent on whether the file had embedded cover art or not.

LG NANO85 4K TV, Samsung JU7100 4K TV, Sony BDP-S3500, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Insignia Roku TV, Roku Ultra, Premiere and Stick, Nvidia Shield, Yamaha RX-V583 AVR.
Primary server: Intel i5-6400, 8 gig ram, Windows 10 Pro, 22 TB hard drive space | Test server Windows 10 Pro, AMD Phenom II X4 965, 8 gig ram

HOWTO: Enable debug logging HOWTO: Identify media file contents
