Is it possible to support gzip compression? The list iTunes gets from daapd is several mb in size and it is highly compressable data.
My uplink is only 192kbit in size which is enough for most of my songs but the first connection is very very slow. Compression would help alot and I know that iTunes supports it. I wrote iSuck three years ago if someone remembers it! 😉
Yeah, it does support it, the only issue I have with it is that it is really slow. It requires 3 passes through the db to be able to send compressed stuff, although that tradeoff might be worth it for a low speed connection.
I’ll take a look at it again and see how bad it looks.
