    Hello.

    I have a library of 43000 songs, i have all this ordered as this:

    Artists
    OST
    New Age
    Classical
    …..and more

    I installed firefly under debian etch, and tested with amarok and presents me all songs in a different structure.

    I would like know if will be possible that firefly will present me the same structure that I have in my HD

    Thanks

    If you have placed it in a folder structure, then firefly most likely isnt the program of your choice yet.
    firefly sorts and classifies music by metadata (ID3-tags and the likes).

    UPnP servers, however, mostly serve the contents 1:1 as they are located on the HD.

    Regardless of the brand of your SoundBridge being RoKu or Pinnacle, uPnP servers should be supported.

    Twonky is one of those, but its not free.
    There is preliminary uPNP server support in firefly at this stage, but it is not aimed at the featureset you’d like to see.

    I really can just google for upnp server myself there, so… *shrug* 🙄

    If you are handy with any programming language, you can do what I do – disable firefly’s file scanner, and populate the database with your own script. Then you can ignore the tags, and use the strings from your file structure for the genre/artist/etc tags.

    part of the up-side of a sql db underlying it.
