    When I log onto and browse my home (linux based) server with my Sam Note 4, I can browse and play both music and films no problem.

    When I click on a track ( in ES File Explorer) I get offered by default a choice of playing with either:-

    ES Media Player or
    Google Play Music or
    Sound player

    Depending on the file format .mp3 .flac Etc the choice of players reduces, and the music plays nicely.

    However I can not work out how to "SELECT MULTIPLE TRACKS".

    I guess the solution would be to use a "Player" which allows network browsing.

    Where and what should I be looking for? (Free prefered). ............. Thanks

    There are a few approaches to streaming music files on your server

    1. Upload to Google play music or similar. (guessing you don't want to do this.

    2. Install a DLNA or network share app on your phone, like this.. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...app.funkiaudio
    VLC will also browse network shares

    3. Don't know what software you are using on your 'nix server (I use unraid and have a synology), you could install a music server/plug in on the server itself. You could then browse to the server address to play music.

    4. Mount a cifs folder on your phone. I would only do this on your LAN. you could then use any player app to utilize the mounted folder.

    I use option 3, but have utilized all 4 at some point with either video or audio.

    Thanks mbryanr

    Freenas server in the attic wired to everywhere and linking at the moment the Sam Note 4 wirelessly, might consider docking later?

    Screen mirroring (plays videos and tracks) Sam Note 4 to Sony Bravia W6 works like a dream, not really needed but nice to have.

    I'll try your good ideas tomorrow :-)
