I have rygel configured as DLNA server and it autostarts with my session --> Cool

On my TV I can browse/play the music, but the interface with the remote is horrible. --> Not cool

So the question is, can I let rhythmbox find my music hosted by rygel [it can, I found that], but more important, can it somehow tell my TV to play that music file?

Edit: So the end goal is to be listen to my music playing on the TV while working, and use my media keys/rhythmbox UI to change songs, without turning my head and get cranky while pushing the remote buttons.

  • @Takkat, that is a neat piece of hacking, and I got that working, but it gives a horrible (but expected) delay (20sec) on the sound. Not really what I was looking for. I am looking more for something like a DLNA controller. – W. Goeman Apr 3 '13 at 18:34
  • Have you solved your problem ? [I have the same kind of question][1] Thanks [1]: askubuntu.com/questions/383549/… – Nicolas Nov 28 '13 at 23:39
  • No I haven't. Still searching for a solution every now and then though. Worst thing is that windows has it. – W. Goeman Nov 29 '13 at 7:33

Take a look at github.com/masmu/pulseaudio-dlna. It was designed for your purpose.

You can choose which application to play on your tv via pavucontrol.
