I recently bought a Raumfeld audio streaming system and I am now looking for a media server to store my collection using the FLAC format.
My first idea was to use my Fritz Box 7390 router as media server. You can simply connect a USB drive and configure it as a media server. This basically works, but the tag information for FLAC files is not analyzed, which is also mentioned on a site by the manufacturer (http://en.avm.de/nc/service/fritzbox/fritzbox-7390/knowledge-base/publication/show/1074_File-formats-supported-by-the-Media-Server/). Without the tag information the Raumfeld app cannot identify compilations and displays therefore every track as a single album. (With a MP3 collection on the USB drive there is not problem.)
When I connect a USB disk directly to a Raumfeld device (e.g. Raumfeld One M), I don't have that problem. So the root cause, I assume, is not wrong meta information (tags), nor a bug in the Raumfeld app, but that the Fritz Box media server is not sending that information.
But, I dont't want to connect a USB drive directly to my Raumfeld device, I would like to install a proper media server. I am looking for working real life examples. I already read about the MinimServer (http://minimserver.com/index.html), which sounds promising.
Does anybody now of a media server that support FLAC files AND tags? Maybe even in combination with a Raumfeld device?
