    Have tried this before myself.
    Cons which made me code my own client:
    – Local ONLY. So no way you can stream over the internet.
    – Requires Apple Bonjour to be installed and running on WinXP.

    Just FYI.

    I also tried this a while ago. It is not really local only – one can use RendezvousProxy to have it access remote shares.

    BUT, and its a big but, the thing does appear to be quite buggy and and in pre-alpha state.

    It doesnt support passworded DAAP servers, it has bugs when the DAAP share changes after it read it and so on. Plus the version is from 2006. No development since then doesnt sound very active…

    Would be nice if this plugin was as actively developed as fireflash. But as it is its not very recommendable yet.

    The dormant “GIT – Get it together” has been doing a great job in my installation for more than a year now:

    I use the old 0.2.3 version of Firefly running on a slug with OpenSlug 3.1. It hosts more than 6000 songs …

    In the meantime it proved to work well with firefly 1586 (on SlugOS/BE), too.

    Client is a fan- and diskless via epia computer that has all its software on a 4 GB flashcard. (http://www.zonbu.com) I installed GIT on that Linux box. Box is connected to our flatscreen-TV. Operated with a wireless keyboard.
    Performance is great: stable, fast, reliable … 🙂

    The SEARCH functionality is fast as lightning; when you start git, it creates a local table with all your songs, so searching happens locally. As a result, you always get a list with all songs that match your search-string.

    So when it comes to search-performance, it leaves FirePlay far behind.

    Some things do not work, however:

      Playlists (this is the reason why I use FirePlay occasionally.)
      No browsing songs by Genre (another reason for using FirePlay.)

    In short: the combination of OpenSlug 3.1, standard mt-daapd 0.2.3 and GIT as player is VERY stable and highly recommendable.

    Any way to get Songbird to work with Firefly?

    There are no traces of a working DAAP-Plugin for Songbird. It’s been mentioned a couple of times on the forum.

    I saw over at the Songbird site that someone asked about DAAP support and they said it is in development, but is not a top priority. I guess we can only wait and see. That is one slick app.

    WiFiTunes (http://www.aspecto-software.com/rw/applications/wifitunes/) is a DAAP client in the sense that it connects to a DAAP server and streams music off it.

    …Actually, only mp3 files.

    …And, now that I think about it, it’s closed-source, slow, crashes a lot, and severely limited.

    But, on the bright side, it’s the only option I know of for Windows Mobile-powered smartphones and PDAs. And if all you want to do is listen to mp3s in your library, it works. Usually.

    My favorite feature is when you try to play a song larger than about 10 MB, the program skips to the next song, as it’s written to store the entire file in program memory (which is severely limited in Windows Mobile).

    Banshee has recently been announced for OS X. Support isn’t 100% yet, but they will really go cross platform soon. It seems that we can expect a port to Windows in a reasonable time, too. 🙂

    On the contrary, I can highly recommend it. In keeping with WinAmp’s design philosophy, it’s small, does exactly what it sets out to do, and no more. It’s worked fine for me for a year or so now – obviously it might not work for everyone, but it certainly does work on a normal WinXP / WinAmp installation.

    There is also an mDNS dll which means you don’t actually need Bonjour installed.

    Of the others I use an SB (fine) and Rhythmbox (better – it does crossfading). I used to use Amarok but it cuts out about 10 seconds before the end of every track, which is really irritating. I assume it doesn’t do that to everybody, but it always did to me.

    Cheers,
