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,
rsp is easiest and fastest for xml requests, so this is generally it:
gets you server info
gets you a list of playlists (and id’s)
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:
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.
to stream a song.
