I have been using Winamp application on my pc for the long time. I got used to it. I want to have something similar when I play back music. ArkMC allos to play pause, but I want to see the list of currently payed music, select the song I want to play. Be able to repeat playlist. And I want one song to start automatically after another.

Thanks for your post. We would work on improvement of usability on the following versions of our application.

There are a lot of servers we have tried with ArkMC.
But the couple of ones we use the most are:
WMP - on Windows PC
XBMC - for Linux and MAC computers.

But I think that it is better to try couple of servers and selece what suits your needs the best.
You can also try MediaTomb, Serviio, XBMC.
Some servers are mutiplatform, some are for specific platform.

I have visited my friend. He has Sony Playstation 3. I didn't see Sony Playstation in the list of renderers when I run ArkMC, though it is DLNA compatible. What it is so?

Hello Teamen,
thank you for the question.

Sony PS3 is nor Media Renderer (DMR) it's Media Player (DMP), it can discover UPnP/DLNA Media Servers in local network, browse them and playback media.

There are the following DLNA classes.

DMS - server, can share media information, can be accessed by another devices.
DMP - can browse servers, select media and play it!
DMC - can browse servers, select media and sent it to another devices and controll their playback.
DMR - can receive media from controllers and play it, can be controlled.

    I find it totally ironic that this application is posted in the 'Android apps and games' section.

    I can find no reference at all to Android in the OP but numerous mentions of iPad/iPhone.

    Windows Renderer?

    You can share media that you watch right now with all other devices available in your network!
    While playback tap your screen and you will see "Send to external player".
    Choose a player from the list and voila!
    Media will play simultaneously on both devices (you will have control of other device too).

    Hi - Solid app! Just purchased the pay ver from the Google Play store (running Android 4.1.1), but need a client/renderer solution for Windows!

    ArkMC can play to and play from WMP on my windows 7 PC, but can only see and play from an older Win Vista Home Media Center PC. Are there any players/renderers that work prior to Win7? I've tried Media Monkey, XMBC and Foobar 2000 with the upnp plug in. ArkMC will see the Foobar2000 renderer but it appears to be an audio only solution at the moment - no pictures or video.

    I'm mainly trying to push video (mp4) from the phone to the media center PC. Any thoughts?
