    First of all, don't recommend Plex, I know about it

    I'm trying to stream media to my Wii U though a personal server, the problem is that I can't get sound files to work, I have attempted to use .mp3 and .AAC files but neither load, saying that the file is unable to load. I can get mp4 files to load fine but sometimes I just want to stream music.

    So what are the specifics for audio files? (I have Googled with no success)

    Thanks in advance

    its generally html5 or mp4 formats via web browser for video.
    hope that helps

    this worked for me like a charm http://airplayit.com/
    It creates a server and can convert audio and video on the fly

    Well I have mp4 videos working and I've heard that audio files just don't work at all (I got a html5 player to work on my server) so unless that changes then there's nothing else to do here

    hmm I thought I tested a mp3 but it was a mkv. the program only converts video on the fly not audio files.. still that would be a way to play music. by finding a program that converts audio to a video file
