2Player Network Music Player

2Player Network Music Player

The 2Player Network Music Player is a full-featured network music player for Windows and Linux home networks. This app runs on the Android platfom turning your Android device into a remote controller that can play music from and to network media devices throughout your home.

This application makes use of the "Play From" and "Play To" capabilities of Windows 7, and the XBox 360 media players to seemlessly move music from where it is stored to where you want to play it. The app also works with many devices that support the UPnP and DLNA Media Player protocols, DLNA televisions, network storage devices, bluRay players, and many other living room devices.

FAQ
Best Android Apps Review
Verdict:

Whilst 2Player has been optimised to work with Windows 7 computers, we found that it also works seamlessly with our range of Linux based NAS servers. 2Player does not try to complicate matters by supporting photos or videos; this is simply the finest free Android music player available. The support forums are, unfortunately, full of spam.
