    You need to enter both the admin password and the DAAP playback password for each song again. That sucks a bit.
    It should memorize the passwords so that one doesnt have to enter it each song again – and then 2 passwords even.

    Ah, crap. that’s a bug from the modularizing the daap. I’ve added this as a bug.

    BTW, your webadmin shows the same irritant behaviour in some cases, let me describe:

    1. You go on the index page. It asks for admin password, all cool here.

    2. You click on smart playlists. It asks for the music password. Hrmm, that shouldnt be. But after entering it it works.

    3. You click again on the server status and again a password box asking for the admin password.

    You can repeat 2. and 3. and get every time a new password box. It also wont really tell you which password it wants, you gotta guess or know from experience which it is.

    Guess using 2 passwords, one for admin and one for the music share isnt something thats tested out much.

    Using svn-1433 on a NSLU armb from your ipkg distribution point btw.

    Yeah, same bug. I’ll try and get this done today.

    Hi.

    Is this DAAP client still available? I am becoming increasingly fedup with iTunes..

    Yup, it’s at http://server:port/applet.html

    hi, I don’t seem to be having this applet on my 0.2.4 install

    [edit: nm, I have it on the latest dapper-nightly]

    Is there any way I can use this applet from a network machine without setting or using a remote admin password? I am sure it would be possible to modify the server to allow anonymous access to applet.html, but I am not a programmer so I wouldn’t know how to do this myself.

    Not right now without code changes. I intend that there be a user accessible way to browse, play, and download remote music on a server, but I’m not there yet.

    Rename it to .tar and open it.

    jar’s are really just tape archives which contain some special files.

    I see a lot of .class libraries there, which look like some binaries however.

    I always change it to zip 🙂

    but then indeed you get the binaries, that will be hard to edit i think…

    So using a source is easyer 🙂

    You can use a rewrite rule to do this:)
    just download DAAPApplet-0-1.jar and applet.html

    use this piece of code for your apache2 config



    Servername daap.schoorl.nu
    ServerAdmin [email protected]
    DocumentRoot /usr/local/www/daap
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^/login(.*)$ http://192.168.0.5:8080/login [P]

    Heya,

    Using a java applet is one way to stream music.
    I got fed up with iTunes so I did things differently;
    I found some DAAP documentation and kind of wrote my own DAAP client.
    He does a HTTP request and reads all songs.
    The program then writes it all to a .m3u playlist file.
    This m3u playlst file can be opened by Winamp which results in a Remote Playlist with streams.

    Piece of cake and hella handy. Isnt this a better way than completely integrating the musicplayer in a java applet?

    Hi.

    Any chance you can share this client with us?

    All the music can be streamed as http://server/rsp/stream/, if you know the song id (which is in the database).

    Is seems this only works with MP3s. I tried a couple of FLACs and my player complained about it being an unsupported format (foobar can play FLAC)

    It’s not broken on the daap server side. You can try playing with “never_transcode” and see if you can force it to flac or wav, and see if foobar has better luck with it.
