Hi Guys,

Heres a conumdrum that I cant find a resolution to. When I had a pc I could list it as a server on my network attached blue ray player and stream my itunes music across the network t play on the home cinema system. All I had to do was switch on uPNP/DLNA and away we go.

Not so easy on my macbook pro (snowleopard). I have shared just about everything any way I can but I canot see my mac listed as a server on the blue rayplayer. I assume its because macos doesnt use or support uPNP/DLNA? can anyone advise? obviously the bluray doest run itunes so sharing it that way wont work......

Any help appreciated!

/Mark

What you need is a DLNA server application for your Mac. There's a ton to choose from, check out this list to get you started:
