Amazon Music(Prime)

Post by MadHaTr » Thu Feb 22, 2018 5:17 am

Is there a way to stream Amazon music(music.amazon.ca) through UMS? Sadly Amazon does not have a PS4 app for their product, only their video service.

I have a PS4 and a Marantz 7703 pre-amplifier on the network.

I don't know how this service works, so I can't say for sure, but probably no. These subscription services normally control how you can play the content using DRM, which makes them inaccessible from 3. party software like UMS.

If there was a way, how would I go about trying? Can UMS do youtube to ps4? I know ps4 has youtube app but i'm just thinking of streaming/music/video services.

I think Google has blocked access to youtube as well. They want to force you to watch their ads. UMS has a "WEB.conf" file where you can configure online resources to share. I have never actually used it, so I don't know much about it. You should be able to find information on this forum about it though.
