aMPdroid Installation Nightmare (1 Viewer)

Hi All,

I've installed all the prerequisites (NET 4, Wifi Remote, MP Extender) and configured them all to the various tutorials I have seen around.

However, it still isn't working properly. When I start aMPdroid on my phone I can "Start/Stop MePo" but cannot control it. It constantly tells me that "The Plugin is not installed on Server"! which it is. I've used MP Extender Installer to configure Wifi Remote and used the QR code to scan in the settings.

Because I can start and stop MePo with aMPdroid something tells me that it is Wifi Remote that isn't playing ball. I'm accessing within my home network. When I click on the 'Wireless' symbol in the top right of aMPdroid there is no details of server etc but the client is definitely set up in the aMPdroid settings as I can see them - correct IP address/correct login info!

I've tried uninstalling everything and starting again but with no joy.

I have created rules in my router and windows firewall but still nothing!

Can anyone shed any light on why the Remote won't connect?

Just a quick update. I used the WifiRemote demo client and I can connect and control no problem so the ports etc are working!

Why can't I connect with my phone? Constant Red light and "plugin not installed on server" message?!


EDIT: Low and behold. Spoke too soon. I can now! Yay! :)

'I think' that it is to do with my home workgroup set up. I have many things connected in the house (NAS, WD SMP, Laptop, PCs). I changed the usernames and passwords to the usual ones for this particular desktop. Although I don't know why this fixed it as I could already access everything especially the NAS.

Once I ran the Demo Client and it was asking for logon info it wouldn't work to start with. So I went back into all the configuration settings for MPExtender service, etc and changed them all to the Username and Password for the Desktop (well now an HTPC). Uninstalled the Android app, reinstalled, and used the QR Codes I had saved and it worked.

One thing I have noticed though is that I can't 'Stop' a film with the remote. Only Forward Next, Back Next, and Pause! Seems a bit strange but I'll look at that later.


Oh, haven't tried it outside the home network yet but it will be rare that I'll use it outside. I'll also look at that later.

I've made a workaround using Autohotkey. If you don't want to install that should this problem arise for you, you can use my compiled .exe and add it to the autostart folder of Windows 8.1 and above.

I've been using version 1.2.2.0 for years and have found no need to upgrade to newer version. I hate it that skins loose compatibility with almost every new version. And new skins are too 'fancy' for my taste. I use a customized version of the default wide skin with only Videos and TV in the main menu. I use mediaportal for recording...

Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things. Main reason is simply, that MP2 is not developed based on MP1. I for example never used MP1. I tried it lately to test voice control and was shocked about many inconsistancies in...

P.S. - Strangely, the TV Server my single seat setup (1.27 on a modest machine running Windows 10 Pro x64) is working from my office machine MP client. Same exact network, firewall, Defender settings. It's a slightly older version of Win 10 though - I haven't updated to 20Hx on it yet. Maybe I shouldn't (or maybe I should image it...
