Ubuntu newbie just installing 13.10 desktop. Does the version of Rhythmbox included with 13.10 natively support DLNA such that I can send music to my whole-house receiver.

If not natively, is there a way to make it do so?

Thank you very much.

  • Can't test it, but it should work. If you're after live streaming, you can setup PulseAudio to stream anything from your sound card or any source. That should be answered here. – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Jan 31 '14 at 7:13

For some time now there has been a UPnP plugin based on Coherence(Now grilo) for Rhythmbox. It allows Rhythmbox to access UPnP/DLNA MediaServers on the network and will also export the Rhythmbox music collection to other UPnP/DLNA MediaRenderers such as the Sony Playstation 3.

Fist add grilo ppa:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:grilo-team/ppa
sudo apt-get update

Then You can install it using

sudo apt-get install grilo grilo-plugins

Then go to pluings->grilo media browser. And configure it.
