Cantata is an app which is available for download on Mac and PC.
To set it up, install Cantata and run through setup:
For the host name field you want to enter the name of your Poly, followed by “.local” so that Cantata will automatically find it no matter what network its on. The port remains 6600. Notice that the display says “Not Connected” underneath the settings.
You can just click the connect button to continue.
If your Poly is up, connected and you typed the name in correctly you will then see the message “Connection Established” and you can continue.
You can proceed past the options on the next page…
Now you will see the music that is on your Poly. You are now in fact controlling the Poly playback from Mac, and you can play music and enjoy…. You can also select music bu clicking on the various tracks, albums or artists and make playlists… by right-clicking
and adding them to an existing playlist, or creating a new one.
Playlists you create in Cantata will be available in QuickPlay mode in GoFigure
