FYI, firefly is often run as user ‘nobody’, so make sure anyone has read access.
Nope, there has been chosen for linux only.
As I replied earlier, Firefly is not designed to be reached from 2 ports.
Therefore, the easiest solution for your problem is running 2 independent instances of firefly. (This forum has several posts explaining how)
You can have these 2 firefly’s run on different ports, and configure them as you like.
I agree with stretch. I am not aware of reaching firefly diferently so that it does or does not transcode files in another way.
My guess: you have one or more of the options ‘Process Playlists’, ‘Process iTunes files’, ‘Process .m3u files’ enabled.
I think the easiest way to fix it is this way:
Visit the webadmin page. (http://:3689)
Go to Configuration. Click Show advanced config.
Disable any or all of the above options. Make sure you hit save.
Then, to get rid of all the playlists, I think the easiest way is to delete the database and let firefly create a new one:
Shutdown firefly. Delete the database. (songs.db or songs3.db)
If this doesn’t fix your situation, I probably misunderstood yours.
Heh, in fact, 1696 is the newest version. Whereas the latest ‘stable’ version doesn’t have RSP implemented yet.
Therefore I suggest you reinstall the version from the ubuntu repo, which most likely will fix your problem.
The database was probably created as root. Therefore, any other user doesn’t have the permission to read/write the database. Try chmodding the db, or deleting it and then start firefly as user=nobody.
Deleting the database will force firefly to create a new one from scratch.
That looks more like a helpfile or some sort for the config file.
I know that the following link contains a template of an actual config file.
You could try searching for a file that looks like that.
Also, if you can get firefly running for a minute, you can open the web interface where you can change the config on the fly.
The windows interface has a button which opens the web interface for you.
2009-10-07 17:30:51 (20df3cfe): Starting with debuglevel 0
Not quite. :>
But still, unable to open database. The database failed. Although I hate to admit it, it’s a common error.
Somehow the database gets corrupt once in a while.
The easiest solution if the database is indeed corrupt is to shutdown firefly, delete the database, and restart firefly, so it will recreate a new one. (Might take a while, depending on your library size)
If this does not solve the problem, you will indeed need to try and find how to set debuglevel 9. The log states in which level it starts, as quoted above.
Also, have you set a rescan interval? Try turning the rescanning off. I can imagine a collision when rescanning (using database) and streaming a new song (using database).
Hope this helps.
Edit: hehe, stupid of me. Viewing the log I can see you have indeed set a rescan interval, as it says “Scanned x songs” every once in a while. Try removing it, or setting it to 0. (Not sure which turns it off)
For a fact I know that linux uses the file “mt-daapd.conf” instead of “firefly.conf” and I believe the same is for windows. (not sure)
Also, I’m not sure changing that file’s default value will change the actual value. But at least it’s worth a try. The log states in which debuglevel it starts, so you should see soon enough whether it’s working or not.
Is the question/answer something you made up yourself? If so, it will indeed keep the spam away.
I also agree in the users without posts. I would even agree to delete users with 1 or 2 posts. Would you care if your account on a forum got deleted where you posted 2 messages? I wouldn’t.
Edit: I did a quick check. Deleting all users with # of posts <= 2, the user count would lower to 21 pages.
Deleting # of posts = 0 would equal 46 pages. As the # of members is spread over almost 500 pages, I guess we can delete quite some users. 🙂
I agree with stretch on this one. As you have no trouble accessing firefly directly, it is clearly a discovery problem.
Like andyg said, you should try raising the debuglevel. The highest is level 9, but a lot of unnecessary information will be given.
Ofcourse, with a lower debuglevel, crucial info might be left out, so it never hurts to try debuglevel 9.
Next to that, the error states it has trouble accessing the database.
First of all I can tell you that as soon as Firefly hits an error, it shuts itself down.
A common error is the database getting corrupt. Why or how? We don’t know. If we did, we would’ve fixed it.
Another possibility is the database being locked, due to a failure at releasing the lock the last time it accessed the database.
But these are just ideas. I suggest raising your debuglevel in order to get more information on the crash.8th September 2009 at 9:10 am in reply to: Want ITunes only for filling up my IPods – possible? #18816
iTunes sees a firefly share as a shared music library. As iPods have been made very anti-piracy-like, it is not possible to fill your iPod from a shared music library. Therefore, you can only fill your iPod with music on the local pc.
Unless you’re running iTunes on the WHS itself. Then indeed, you’ll have to transcode the flac files to a format iTunes does support. But then you won’t be using firefly.
The point is, firefly does support flac because it sees when a client doesn’t support flac. When this is the case, firefly transcodes the music on-the-fly making the client ‘compatible’ with flac files.
But this is for streaming purposes only, not filling iPods and such.
