    I am using Firefly 0.2.4.2 stable on a Linux server, and have setup Firefly to synchronize manually the personal iTunes Music Library with the iTunes Shared Library by creating a script. The synchronization works great for .mp3 and .mp4 (AAC) files, but it does not synchronize .AIFF and .WAV files.

    Does anyone know what to do?

    Thanks!

    Did you add wav and aiff as extensions for mt-daapd?

    Secondly, you really should consider upgrading to a nightly release, mt-dapd 0.2.4.x is _really_ outdated.

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, we specified .wav and .aiff as the file extensions. We also just upgraded to the nightly version, which we didn’t want to use in the first place because the nightly version is unstable, but after the upgrade, we were able to create the export of the iTunes Shared Music Library.

    For our test, the export created
    Itunes.xml (xml for audio)
    Audio files (in media directory)

    The total size is approximately 1.2GB – 201 songs.

    What we would like to know is what issues we are going to run into if we keep te unstable version running on the server.

    If you or anyone has been running the unstable version with iTunes, we would like to hear from you.

    Thank you!

    I’m running svn-1696 on an NSLU2. Uptime at the moment is 69+days, prior to that it was 100+ days.
    Both restarts were due to power failures.

    101 days, 4 hours, 4 minutes, 39 seconds and counting – svn 1696 on a Via Epia M6000 under Debian Etch. As solid as the proverbial rock!

    Hello guys, Thanks for the replies.

    1. I want to verify that the version you are running is the nightly version.

    2. Also, I am curious to know if your Firefly/iTunes setup is running on a corporate or personal environment; and how many users are sharing the music library.

    Thank you!

    Another question, your responses refer to version svn-1696, while the Firefly download link refers to svn-1586 as being the latest version.

    Sorry to insist, but what version are you running?

    Thanks!

    Just check the nightlies page (nightlies.fireflymediaserver.org) for the download links.

    I’ve also had svn-1696 running on a NSLU2 with 100+ days uptime.

    My environment is private, and while I’m a single user, I’ve got multiple clients. Even on the poor slug firefly behaved nicely.

    Hello fizze,

    Thanks for the reply. I did check the page listing the latest Firefly versions (It is dated May 2007). What we are really interested in finding out is if there are any KNOWN ISSUES running iTunes in a shared library environment (we actually have a server specifically built for this purpose) with Firefly (nightly version).

    I really appreciate your replies. We are new to Firefly. Do you mind me asking how long you have been using this software, and the types of issues you have run into since you installed it?

    Thanks!

    Well if you want a feasibility study all you need to do is search this forum, and possibly the rokulabs forums.
