Sorry if this is a basic question, but have been searching for a manual or threads on this topic and not had any success.
I use Firefly to connect my Roku Soundbridge m1001 via my wireless router to my Apple Mac running 10.4 and play my itunes library successfully. However, I was wondering if there was a way to play mp3s that I have on dvds/cds or in folders on my desktop. I have tried adding another music folder in configuration to a folder on the desktop, but I can’t access it from the soundbridge and am not sure if it is just a matter of activating the link or if I am totally on the wrong track.
Any advice welcome. (including a link to a user manual).
Nope, that should work. Just add your desktop as a music folder via the web interface.
You’ll also have to rescan using the web interface, but that’s it.
The only other issue is if it’s something other than the default types it scans, then it needs to be added to the extensions list. That’s really about it.
