    I am running mt-daapd on gentoo. I assume that this is actually firefly.

    I have two daap shares defined.

    Share A works perfectly – I can play music via itunes – it has 770 files in the share.

    I cannot get itunes to play from Share B. I can see the share, but when i click on it, itunes says “Loading Share B” for 5~10 seconds, and then returns to my main music library.

    This share has 45000 files in it

    Is there a problem with itunes loading large libraries from firefly?


    Well, it would definetly take a while as iTunes loads ALL playlists (static and smart) and all the other stuff off the share.
    Either way, I’d suggest yuo update to firefly svn-15xx ish.
    Grab those files from

    they use sqlite as backend, and not gdbm, which is a lot faster.
