    Ok, thx

    I think you’re right sonic … it is worth to think about a version check

    I’m running svn-1586 myself. Installed using apt-get in Ubuntu. Works perfectly.

    OT: Wohoo! A hundred posts!

    Hi Bo,

    I have been trying to hack the .js script to better support my PSP.

    The PSP supports “Shockwave Flash 6.0 r72”. I got some more info from http://www.brothercake.com/site/resources/reference/psp/#flash.

    I tried

    // PSP supports Flash 6
    else if (navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf("playstation portable") != -1) flashVer = 6;

    but that did not help 🙁

    Any ideas ?

    [edit]
    I notice form here http://www.flashdevices.net/2006/04/sony-psp-flash-player-6-supported.html that

    Continuous connection and communication with the server using the XMLSocket feature is not supported.

    The communication feature between JavaScript and Flash Player plug-ins is not supported.

    I assume that is not good news

    I’ve been testing the last couple of versions and I must say I’m impressed. If Ron gets other codecs to transcode to mp3 it’ll be hard to beat.

    One thing that I haven’t read through all 18 pages was the login credentials being restricted to the admin password. I would of thought one could of just used the music sharing password. I’m not missing something am I?? I’d really like to see that so I could share my music with family.

    I saw some glitch on mt-daapd svn-1586 that caused my slug to be very busy with lots of broken pipes in the logfile. Since mt-daapd was down, I ceased the opportunity to upgrade, and with 1696 it seems to be fine. 🙂

    Great work. I’ve just integrated it into the rest of the firefly web stuff, and its awesome. 8)

    In contrast do other experiences I have to say that FirePlay 0.61 works suberb with the Wii-Opera Browser.

    Only one thing is different. The sort sequence of the titles in the song field is in lexical order on the Wii (1,10,11,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9), while it is in numerical order on all my other machines (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11).

    I don’t know if this is a small or a big issue, but of course it would be nice if the sort order is the same (numeric) on all machines.

    @Bo: Outstanding work!

    Hi!

    First of all, I don’t think you really need the .js at all. It’s just a way of determining the clients player version. Actually this should be enough:

    	





    Regarding the last bit, I don’t use class XMLSocket at all. That’s for creating open socket connections between parties with low net usage, as in a chat session or perhaps a chess game. I only use the two classes XML and XMLNode, the first one to load the data, the other to traverse the XML tree.

    The only thing I can think of is that I have set the playback rate to 25 and according to your references, only 18-24 is allowed. I have lowered it to 20 for you to try out. It shouldn’t help but you never know. For FirePlay it really doesn’t matter.

    That behaviour is really beyond me. I have no idea why it acts that way. Perhaps the order code:

    		_root.songsdp.sortItemsBy(["Album", "Discnbr", "Nbr"], ["ASC", Array.NUMERIC, Array.NUMERIC]);

    which sorts by Album (alphabetically), DiscNbr (numeric) and Nbr (numeric) is not supported on the Wii Flash player?

    I have never used the music password myself so I’m afraid I can’t help you. All I can thik of is:

    If you don’t want to use the admin password, you can’t put FirePlay in the admin-root folder. It has to be outside, running on another web-server i presume (apache, cherokee…)

    Perhaps Ron can enlighten me (us) on how the music password is used during the rsp session?

    I still get the flashing disco controls – which never populate.

    Oh well – thanks for trying anyway.

    Right now the permissions scheme on the stuff is kind of basic. The web namespace each has their own authentication handlers, and maps logons to roles.

    Right now, there are two roles: admin and user

    Accessing the /rsp namespace requires user role, /databases, /server-info, and the other related daap namespaces require user role, and everything else requires the admin role.

    Probably the thing to do would be to have the player in a separate namespace (/fireplay/, maybe?) and I can set the role on that to be user only.

    It will still require admin to modify playlists, though. Hopefully flash will be smart enough to prompt when asked for playlist modifying credentials.

    That sounds like a plan. I’m not sure about the promt though. Right now it’s the webserver that handles the credentials. I think we’ll have to do that on a “try then fix”-basis. Perhaps we can pass them as:

    http://user:[email protected]:3689/whatever...

    New version with multiple selections.

    N.B: It’s still not possible to show All (nnn) albums. It’s just there for future use.

    Love the new colour scheme, fits really nicely with firefly.

    Couldn’t get multiple select to work, the download reports to be 0.62.
