If you already have a DLNA server set up for your PlayStation, XBox, etc, you can jump straight to step 2.
If you have your music on a NAS drive, most drives come with a DLNA server built in. In this case please refer to the manufacturers instructions to configure the server.
If your music is on Windows, you can enable the DLNA by opening
Settings and typing "media" in the search box. Click
Media streaming options, and then click the
Turn on media streaming button.
There are lots of options for Linux, however we reccomend miniDLNA. Install by running
sudo apt-get install minidlna. Edit
/etc/minidlna.conf adding a path to your music, such as
media_dir=A,/home/user/Music. Then restart the server with
sudo service minidlna restart.
You need to let OurJukebox know what music you have on your server. To do this we have a small app which scans through the server and sends the music list securely to OurJukebox. It can be run on any computer
Open the downloaded file, run ourjukebox, and follow the onscreen instructions.
If you do not yet have an Our Jukebox username and password, please ensure you have linked your skill using the Alexa app, where you will be prompted to create a login.
Mac users may receive a security warning when running the client - this is simply because we've not paid Apple to be registered developers. If you see this, case open the 'Terminal' app and drag the ourjukebox application into it.
First unzip and install ourjukebox:
tar -xf ourjukebox-armv7.tar.gz -C .ourjukebox
sudo install -m 755 .ourjukebox/ourjukebox /usr/local/bin
To index every morning at 1am, run
crontab -e and add the line:
0 1 * * * /usr/local/bin/ourjukebox index-server
