Apple DLNA app with Tidal help


Recommended Posts

Need some help with options for this on ipad/iphone.

 

Was at a mates and he is apple only which I am hopeless with. He has a DLNA/UPNP capable streamer that worked fine with Bubbleupnp and Tidal from my Android phone.

 

We installed the Mconnect paid version on his iphone and ipad but both came back with something like not available on his plan. I assume this is to do with his Tidal subscription but he is on the Premium plan.

 

Quick searches didn't come back with any help. Is Mconnect the best/only DLNA app for apple? Any good alternatives?

 

Thanks

iPeng?  https://pinkfishmedia.net/forum/threads/recommendations-for-a-ios-upnp-player-please.231201/

 

I use LMS and iPeng.  There is an addon for LMS to use DLNA/UPNP and I know that works with Bubble on my Android phone.  I do not remember if I ever tried DLNA on my iPad.  I also do not know if Tidal is on LMS.  It has a ton of addons and is still a community supported software https://forums.slimdevices.com

Thanks @jcbenten

Looks like too much hassle and mate is unlikely to mess around with LMS etc and not straight forward with Tidal

@bunno77 I hear you...LMS can be difficult to set up and configured how one wants...but once I installed QLMS on my NAS, Qnapclub Store - QLogitechMediaServer, it all became much easier.

TIDAL Premium is the lower of two tiers - are you confusing it with TIDAL HiFi?

What TIDAL streaming quality settings has the mconnect Player app been configured with?

 

BTW, I can't think of any UPnP/DLNA controller apps on Apple's iOS devices, other than the mconnect Player ones, that can provide TIDAL (or Qobuz) access on their own. Other iOS controller apps require you run helper or media server software on a computer or NAS on the same network, such as the Logitech Media Server for the iPeng app already mentioned, or the BubbleUPnP Server helper application for the Linn Kazoo app.  

We will win because our NHS is the beating heart of this country. It is the best of this country. It is unconquerable. It is powered by love.

Do you really believe that app has anything to do with the OP's requirement of a TIDAL supporting iOS app to control UPnP/DLNA streamers with?
