A menu bar application using mpv as DLNA Media Renderer. You can push videos, pictures or musics from your mobile phone to your computer.

Installation

  • MacOS || Windows || Debian

    Download link: Macast release latest

    Linux users may have problems installing using pip. Two additional libraries that I have modified need to be installed:

    pip install git+https://github.com/xfangfang/pystray.git
    pip install git+https://github.com/xfangfang/pyperclip.git
    
  • Build from source

    Please refer to: Macast Development

Usage

  • For ordinary users
    After opening this app, a small icon will appear in the menubar / taskbar / desktop panel, then you can push your media files from a local DLNA client to your computer.

  • For advanced users

    1. By loading the Macast-plugins, Macast can support third-party players like IINA and PotPlayer.
      For more information, see: #how-to-use-third-party-player-plug-in
    2. You can modify the shortcut keys or configuration of the default mpv player by yourself, see: #how-to-set-personal-configurations-to-mpv
  • For developer
    You can use a few lines of code to add support for other players like IINA and PotPlayer or even add additional features, like downloading media files while playing videos.
    Tutorials and examples are shown in: Macast/wiki/Custom-Renderer.
