'Muzo' equivalent for Mint (Wi-Fi driver)

Post by groware » Mon Apr 23, 2018 2:17 am

I have a Digitech XC-5230 stereo amplifier/speaker which expects input from wi-fi, like the Apple 'Air-Play'. The Windows wi-fi software to drive it is called 'Muzo'.
Is there a Linux equivalent ?

Searching didn't find any equivalent, and I don't think it's going to be nearly as straightforward. Maybe someone else has done this or similar, but this is the best I can find:

Hi groware,

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run "inxi -Fxzd" and "lsusb" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information.

Wi-Fi directly, then you can play the local music through MUZO app. or any
other apps that support AirPlay, DLNA or Spotify Connect
.

How to connect the Speaker by DLNA from PC
The speaker must first be connected to the same network as the PC
For DLNA playback, a DLNA enabled player is required (For example
Windows Media Player, etc).
To connect your speaker to your home network:
1. Connect your speaker to your home network.
This may involve connecting an Ethernet cable from your speaker or other
computer to your wired network or it may involve configuring your speaker
or other computer to use a wireless network adapter to connect to your
wireless network.
2. Turn the speaker on, and then follow any configuration instructions that
may be required.

2. Do one of the following:
For information about how to customise what media you share with the device,
see "Change settings for sharing media" in Windows Media Player Help.
Note that you can also allow or deny devices by clicking the notification that
appears when the Player detects a new device on your network.
Play shared media
After you have allowed your computers and speaker to access your Player library,
you are ready to use your speaker or other computer to select content to play.
Note: Set up may differ depending on DLNA player used.
There are various Linux DLNA applications, including VLC, pulseaudio-dlna, etc...

The simple to setup and use UMS (Ultimate Media Server) and PS3 Media Server can stream video, pics, and or audio to DLNA devices.
