Are you guys planning to add SSH support?

Also, will UPnP will be supported?

I only use those 2 to stream my media from my server to my computers.

hi billgoldberg
You can manually add a source including upnp.
Go to Settings>Media Sources >Manually Add Source.
Enter the source Name and the source location (upnp:// to add a upnp source) and then check the correct media content.

@billgoldberg what sort of content are you streaming via ssh? ssh might be the transport, but what's in it (as ssh is not a media protocol)?

as marcel wrote, you can manually add a upnp:// source for upnp, and additionally, going into Settings > Media Sources > Network Sources > Add New Source should scan for both smb and upnp shares.

I use an OpenSSH server to stream media (all kinds of videos, audio files and pictures) to my computers.

If I browse the SSH share in Nautilus it says:


Thanks for the UPnP help, I missed that somehow.

Being able to add and browse filesystems to browse via ssh would be awesome. I have most my stuff lying on a server, and using smb and stuff is both unencrypted and a hassle when ssh is there already. I know I can mount it with some tools and browse that, but tight integration would be better.
