We suggest using Serviio to share your Music although other server software will also work
Let’s get started…
The Mac with the audio or media you want to share must be located on the same network as your Jongo and your mobile device (iPhone, iPad or Android device)
Firstly you need to go to http://serviio.org/ , then click Download on the menu bar and then click on the link to the version of the Serviio product next to the Apple logo.
When downloaded go to your download list (see the image below)
Double click the Serviio download. You will now see a box pop up (below)
Double click Serviio (highlighted) you will then see the image below appear
You now need to double click Serviio and then Serviio- Console
Then wait for the Serviio Console interface to appear (it can take several minutes, see image below)
If your collection is on your computer then click on Library on the Serviio console menu bar and then on “Add local” to the right of the white box
With a typical iTunes setup your music will be in the Music folder of your username (ours is techsupport)
In turn, click once on:
“iTunes Music” – make sure you just highlight the line at this stage. You then need to click on “Choose”
You then need to select the media type you would like to share on the Serviio console select Music by ticking this icon
Click Save and you are now ready to stream to your Jongos
If you are ready to stream then go to the next section in this guide.
If you don’t keep your Music in a “standard” location then you need to click on library > add path and enter the location of your music
Hint – To find the location go to Finder and click on your user name (see image below) where our username is “techsupport”
Right click on "Music" and click "get info"
Beside "Where", this is your file path, enter this here
