FTP server as music source

Recommended Posts

Hello, I wish they could add the function:

- Use FTP server as music source.
- Manage files of a music source via local FTP server.

Thank you very much!

Regards

If it's a local server (NAS for example) you could map it onto your device's filesystem using CIFS, that should be scanable by Poweramp then.

Trouble with this approach is that you would need to have your server connected all the time. Each time it disconnects/connects, android and Poweramp will kick off a rescan and update (add/delete) its music database. Any playlists created with a mounted drive would not survive this process. However, creating smb playlists using my app would work fine if Poweramp was able to play these. This is a requested feature so who knows.....

There are music players that work fine on this, i.e.: SambaPlayer.

I have all my music stored in a USB 3 Samba HDD connected to the router (it's always online), but can't access it with Poweramp :(

I am currently using Neutron that allows me to connect to a router via FTP / SMB and access the library as if it were a folder more.

Also I always prefer Poweramp but until we have an update that allows me access via FTP / SMB have to use Neutron. Hopefully soon they can include that function.

Thank you very much for your help, greetings.
