On another occasion immediately after dropping the firewall I saw the share appear in Rhythmbox which then played away. I thought I had a firewall problem but when I put the firewall back up Rhythmbox carried on playing. Maybe this was coincidence too.
I think you’d find that eventually it would drop off, or if you started a different music player, then close and re-open rhythmox, it wouldn’t find it again.
mDNS is weird.
On another note I have noticed that with the nightly build it has refused to automatically do the initial music scan. Going into http://localhost:3689 shows zero files scanned and it also refuses to allow me to use the web interface to change the config file. The version that comes with Ubuntu does the scan and will allow me to change the file. I’ve noticed that with the Ubuntu version ownership of mt-daapd is by mt-daapd whereas with the nightly ownership is by nobody. Maybe there’s the reason.
That is the reason. I suppose I should move to the packaging scripts that debian uses so my packages are in line with debian/feisty.
wrt initial scan – that’s fixed in svn.
