    Hi.

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

    Seems to be removed from the nightlies?

    I agree it’d be a great thing. iTunes is a big of a resource hog in many respects at times.

    A command-line client ala mpc for mpd would also be great.

    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.

    Wow. I just added FLAC and OGG to “never_transcode” field and it worked. I even created a playlist listing every ID in the DB (using http:::/rsp/stream/) and the now I can play stuff from Firefly in Foobar. Only problem is that the track name isnt displayed until the track is played. Would be cool if I could somehow parse for names only.

    I have also discovered that VLC will play FLACs from Firefly using the above method without the “never_transcode” trick. Is Firefly doing something odd with the FLACs?

    Ya. I can’t tell whether or not a downlevel client can play a flac, so I always transcode flac files. Sadly, some clients that *can* play flac files *can’t* play wav files (rhythmbox, I’m looking at you).

    If there is a client that I know for a fact can play a file type, I can set whether or not it can handle a particular codec type (using the user-agent), but so many clients say they are iTunes that I can’t use that reliably.

    I do accept a header value called “accept-codecs” that lists the codecs it can play, and I think there are a couple linux players now that pass that value so I can automatically determine what to transcode, but not all of them have it, hence the ability to hand-tune whether or not to transcode flac.

    If that makes sense.

    I had some problems getting this to authorize properly, and it wasn’t until I forced firefly to listen on port 3689 with itunes sharing off that i was able to get it to authorize with the MP3 password in the config file.

    It was just a rather frustrating 2 hours, so I thought I’d put in my $.02 to spare others the pain.

    Can I tell from the log if this is happening? I am wondering why Foobar plays MP3 with transcoding on but not FLAC or Ogg

    Yeah, it will show whether or not it thinks it needs to transcode, and will show the command line it executes to do the transcode.

    It would be cool if one could access the /applet.html page without needing the admin password. A neat solution would be a third password (next to the admin/music pw) so you can grant/revoke access to a friend but don’t automatically enable him/her to trash your library. Or even a set of passwords. 😀

    I’ve just recently added the concept of roles for authentication. I do indeed hope to set something up like that in the future, but it will probably be post-stable.

    Hey,

    How about turning the song names in the playlist page into links to the files using the “http://server/rsp/stream/“?

    🙂

    It’s a post-1.2 thing. I’d like to get rid of the existing thing and put in a nice flash based player.

    You know one around?
