    firefly and fireplay are both isntalled on my ubuntu 7.10 laptop for testing.

    later I will isntall on my workstation, this is just to figure out how it works.

    fireplay looks awesome, but it seems not to be able to connect. see also my other related thread: http://forums.fireflymediaserver.org/viewtopic.php?t=7452

    Do you see the interface at all? Can you do a screendump?

    I’l attach a screen dump later, when I am back at home.

    I do see the interface, its just empty. it seems fireplay cannot connect and tried connecting… it looks like its stuck before connecting, I imagine if it connects successfully, the interface will contain data about the songs I am streaming….

    I just wanna make sure you use http://localhost:3689/FirePlay.html is that correct?

    You should be presented with a login dialog box, just as if you go to http://localhost:3689/playlist.html (for the playlists manager).

    If not, have you put the three files in the correct folder? (/usr/share/mt-daapd/admin-root/)

    If you have, check the permissions on that folder AND the three files (they might have been messed up during copying).

    – yes I use http://localhost:3689/FirePlay.html and I see its interface, its just that it is empty, I mean there are no songs/artists/etc. and it says connecting…
    – I have no login dialog box, and neither do I get one when navigating to http://localhost:3689/playlist.html – well basicaly I get a dialog box, when navigating to: http://localhost:3689/ so I am already authenticated with the browser… I’ll try again with another browser and go first to fireplay result: it asks for password, i enter it, it says connecting
    it seems I cannot uplaod any screenshot here …

    – yes the fields are in the correct folder… and all files inside /usr/share/mt-daapd/admin-root are owned by root:root is that what it should be like?

    Can you stream music using RSP?

    Try http://localhost:3689/rsp/stream/1.mp3 (assuming you have a song with the id 1, try another id if it doesn’t work).

    If you can, could you try adding a playlist (smart or static). You are using the latest version (0.85) right?

    using 0.85 but what exactly is a song ID and how do I find it out?

    Just try the link I provided or change “1.mp3” to “nnnn.mp3”.

    hmmmmm… http://localhost:3689/rsp/stream/100.mp3 worked for me. I got asked to open with exaile or rhythmbox…

    the song plays.

    I can create and edit playlists.

    still FirePlay says only: connecting to http://localhost:3689/ ?

    This is very annoying and must be solved! 🙂

    Could you post your mt-daapd.conf? Please blur all passwords and ip’s.

    Make sure you don’t have a statement like “interface = eth1” (like I do) in there, that makes it unable to connect locally.

    thx for your help. maybe I am doing something completely dumb, I only started playing with firefly 4 days ago. I have a runas = root statement there, as I have my music in a folder only accessible by root, as I am still moving stuff around. when I move the music to its final destination, I’ll change that. I will post the complete config, did not even change the passwd, as its only for testing and only locally reachable… its a testlaptop 😉

    # extensions (optional)
    #
    # These are the file extensions that the daap server will

    #
    # Failing that, one can use server-side conversion to transcode

    # configuration value, or files are not probed in the first
    # place.
    #
    # Valid codectypes:
    #
    # mp4a – for AAC (.aac, .mp4, .m4a, .m4p)
    # mpeg – for mp3
    # wav – for wav
    # wma – for wma
    # ogg – for ogg
    # flac – for flac (.flac, .fla)
    # mpc for musepack (.mpc, .mpp, .mp+)
    # alac for alac (.m4a)
    #

    # Not needed because ffmpeg is enabled (all file types transcoded to wav.
    # If this behavior is undesired, see the [plugins] section and disable it,
    # or selectively disable codecs below with the never_transcode option.)

    # ssc_prog (optional)

    # Program that is used in server side format conversion.
    # Program must accept following command line syntax:
    # ssc_prog filename offset length …
    # Parameter filename is the real name of the file that is
    # to be converted and streamed, offset is number of bytes
    # that are skipped from the beginning of the _output_ file
    # before streaming is started, length is length of the song
    # in seconds (or zero). All other possible arguments must
    # be ignored. The resulting wav file (or the rest of
    # the file after initial seek) is written to the standard
    # output by the ssc_prog program. This is typically
    # a script that is a front end for different conversion tools
    # handling different formats.

    #
    # logfile (optional)
    #
    # This is the file to log to. If this is not configured,
    # then it will log to the syslog.
    #
    # Not that the -d switch will control the log verbosity.
    # By default, it runs at log level 1. Log level 9 will churn
    # out scads of useless debugging information. Values in between
    # will vary the amount of logging you get. However, you must log
    # to a file to see this debugging information (debug information will
    # not appear in syslog.)

    #
    # If background rescanning is disabled, a scan can still be forced from the
    # “status” page of the administrative web interface

    # always_scan
    #
    # The default behavior is not not do background rescans of the
    # filesystem unless there are clients connected. The thought is to
    # allow the drives to spin down unless they are in use. This might be
    # of more importance in IDE drives that aren’t designed to be run
    # 24×7. Forcing a scan through the web interface will always work

    #
    # If you are sure your m3u files have good paths (i.e. unixly pathed,
    # with relative paths relative to the directory the m3u is in), then
    # you can turn on m3u processing by setting this directive to 1.

    # file length. There are three values:
    #
    # 0 (Normal)
    # Just scan the first mp3 frame to try and calculate size. This will
    # be accurate for most files, but VBR files without an Xing tag will
    # probably have wildly inaccurate file times. This is the default.
    #
    # 1 (Aggressive)
    # This checks the bitrates of 10 frames in the middle of the song.
    # This will still be inaccurate for VBR files without an Xing tag,
    # but they probably won’t be quite as inaccurate as 0. This takes
    # more time, obviously, although the time hit will only happen the
    # first time you scan a particular file.
    #
    # 2 (Painfully aggressive)
    # This walks through the entire song, counting the number of frames.
    # This should result in accurate song times, but will take the most
    # time. Again, this will only have to be incurred the first time
    # the file is indexed.

    There is definately a problem with permissions. I would suggest running as mt-daapd and easy up the permissions on the music folder (try chmod 777 and then work your way down).

    The main problem might be that you are indeed running locally. When compiling Flash code, you have to tell the compiler whether to allow network access or local access. If you can, please try to connect to your FirePlay from another computer and see if it works.

    Also you could try to access http://ipaddress:3689/FirePlay instead of “localhost”.

    Did you try to edit FirePlay.html with your host and port?

    well, the problem is that currently the music is on a ntfs partition.
    I have no clue why it did not want to index my music, before settign runas=root.

    I will try later on at home your other suggestions.

    ###edit###
    I tried it at work, could not wait until I get home, and when trying to access it from another PC, I just get a timeout 🙁
    I have not installed any firewall, so I assume the port 3689 should be open… but a netstat -a does not show it as open/listening whatever 🙁

    First, lemme say I *love* FirePlay–I just wanna be able to love it from work, lol.

    I have gone through the other posts, and nothing seems to help me with figuring out why I can only get FirePlay to work within my network at home. Trying to stream music from work just gives a “Connecting to: http://209.181.138.228:256… message forever.

    I’ve included links to a screen shot and my files for examples:
    http://209.181.138.228/fireplay.jpg – Screen shot.
    http://209.181.138.228/fireplay.zip – My fireplay.html file.
    http://209.181.138.228/mt-daapd.zip – My mt-daapd.conf file.

    To clarify though, I *can* play music from work via the applet.html Java page that’s still included with FireFly on both ports 256 and 512, as well as with another (I realize totally different) streaming server Edna (again on ports 256 and 512, it plays at work no problem).

    So I am hoping someone will be able to look at this stuff and point out whatever I’m missing.

    I can’t open the zip-archives. Could you upload them again?

    Can anyone else please help these guys out. I’ve ran out of ideas…
