Hello from Australia,
I apologise for writing in English.
TuneBrowser is my favourite new software for enjoying music.
Can I ask a question for Tiki-san?
Can the “OpenHome Streaming Services” become a new feature of TuneBrowser?
I enjoy music streaming from Tidal.
It would be wonderful to stream favourite music through the TuneBrowser engine.
Thank you for considering this question.2019-09-23 18:29 #6815
Thank you for using TuneBrowser.
Unfortunately, Tidal is not started in Japan, so I do not know detail about it.
You may know TuneBrowser is not supporting to manage streaming services directly. But player engine of TuneBrowser is published as a OpenHome player. If your Tidal controler app is supporing OpenHome player, there is a possibility to see a TuneBrowser OpenHome player in controler.
If that is shown, you can try it.
But … if something goes wrong, it seems difficult for me to support…

OpenHome function of TuneBrowser is disabled by default. So you have to enable it in Preferrences dialogbox (Network tree) before use.

Thank you for a fast reply to my question.
Thank you for explaining to me that Tidal is not available in Japan. In Australia, we recently have Tidal steaming of Hi-Res music. It is very convenient to stream a new album from Tidal and then, if you like it, buy it later on.
I understand that Amazon.co.jp has started a new Hi-Res streaming service. Perhaps Japanese audiophiles can soon try Hi-Res streaming. It is a good service for music fans.
I have activated the OpenHome function in TuneBrowser. I enjoy using the fidata control App to play music from TuneBrowser.
Thank you for suggesting that I use a Tidal app for TuneBrowser. The LUMIN app is the best option. It links to Tidal streaming music when connected to a renderer/player that features the “OpenHome Streaming Service” function.
Very few Renderers/players have the full OH functions, including “Streaming Service”. I hoped TuneBrowser could perhaps have this feature at some future time. I understand your limitations.
Finally, thank you for a wonderful music app I use it everyday to enjoy relaxing music at home. It is wonderful. Omereto.2019-09-24 22:37 #6824
Thank you for your reply. You are already using fidata control app with TuneBrowser, it shows TuneBrowser is working well as a OpenHome player.
TuneBrowser as a OpenHome player is now supporting http protocol only. That may not be enough for “OpenHome Streaming Service”… (As you said, Amazon Music HD has just begun in Japan, but I think it may not support OpenHome)
Thanks again for your understanding.2019-10-17 06:08 #6993

Hi, Thank you for using and loving TuneBrowser for a long time.
I think FTP is a very rare protocol for a music server. TuneBrowser is supporting the following remote protocols for a music server:
- SMB (=Windows File Share)
- HTTP (with UPnP≒DLNA)
Unfortunately, FTP is not supported. If you are using NAS, I think NAS generally supports SMB.
