    HI Ron/Others,

    A couple months back I tried getting firefly(mt-daapd) running on my linux box at home to play my collection of wma lossless files). I was trying to setup the scripts to use mplayer(plays wma lossless files fine) to stream out, but it did not work because I could never get mplayer patched to get rid of all the header info and just pass the stream.

    I have not checked back since yesterday at which time I searched for lossless and linux and did not come up with much.

    Does anyone have firefly setup to do this? If so what am I missing?

    no joy with this? That’s probably fairly old by now, but probably close.

    Hmmm..I think I did try that link last time but I’ll give it a go again this coming weekend. As I recall that older version of mplayer that the patch is made against would not compile on my suse 10.1 distro ver nicely, but I could be wrong. I can’t remember last week let alone 2 months ago. 🙂

    I’ll post my results over the weekend. Thanks Ron.
