Hi All,
I was wondering what documentation there is on calling the firefly server to start streaming a song. I am able to execute the http xml request to do library queries and browse my media however i don’t know how get a song t start playing. Is this a DAAP request that I make with the itemid?

Thanks a bunch,

Hi again.

rsp is easiest and fastest for xml requests, so this is generally it:

server:port/rsp/info

gets you server info

server:port/rsp/db

gets you a list of playlists (and id’s)

server:port/rsp/db/

gets you a list of items (and id’s). You can use get args for index and offset to just get a slice of the data and page through it.

You can do:

server:port/rsp/db//artist
server:port/rsp/db//album
server:port/rsp/db//genre
server:port/rsp/db//composer

to browse by those categories. You *should* be able to browse by any field, but I don’t have that implemented yet, as no client uses it.

server:port/rsp/stream/

to stream a song.
