Aurender Media Manager Manual 

What is AMM (Aurender Media Manager)?

The Aurender platform automatically scans music files stored on its internal storage for metadata. This is what allows the user to browse by artist, album, genre, album cover art, etc. However, the Aurender platform CANNOT scan contents from external sources such as a NAS or USB HDD. So, AMM is a solution to scan external content and make it accessible in the app with support for tagged metadata. After you scan your NAS shares and/or a USB storage, you can browse contents by artist, composer, conductor, album title and genre with album covers in the app.
To use AMM with Aurender, your Aurender must be updated to 4.4.58/5.4.58 or later.
