Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

That is the version that I had the problem with - but it has gone away, and now it works fine. I do not know what changed. Thanks for your time!

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

For what it's worth, I might have a workaround: I can install ShairPlay on the pi, and drive the playback out of that. And for that setup the alsa mechanism works well. Thanks for everyone's help. Turns out there is another problem. It looks like the newest version of Remote on iOS does not want to ...

playback status

I have a setup where I poll forked-daapd on a regular basis, using this Python code: # login conn = httplib.HTTPConnection('localhost', 3689) conn.request('GET', '/login?pairing-guid=0x1&request-session-id=41') response = conn.getresponse() #print 'login: '+ str(response.status), response.reason # g...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Affirmative, sir. I had re-read the conf file, and there it is! Thanks for pointing this out though, and the playlist does indeed show up where you describe.

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

So, my recipe to make things work - at least somewhat - is this: Export radio playlist from iTunes on Mac, use BBEdit to change the line endings from CR (Mac legacy) to LF (Unix), copy into library on rpi. The result is: - the radio playlist does not show up in iOS Remote - though a playlist of song...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Oddly, it is what iTunes spits out, and before it comes out it does work in iTunes (on a Mac). But that certainly give me an avenue to pursue. Thanks for the hint! (I'll report back on how it goes.)

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Hello, I am trying to get internet radio playlists going, and having not much luck with it. So far, I can get playlists scanned, but the log tells me: Playlist URL 'http://stream.liquidcompass.net/KBEMFMAAC.pls' is unavailable for probe/metadata, assuming MP3 encoding The content of the playlist fil...

Playlist Question

I am considering rebuilding my music server, as it is still on Jessie. I am trying to figure out what it takes to get playlists (of songs, as well as internet radio stations) working - do I need iTunes XML formatted playlists for that? And if so, do I need to compile forked-daapd myself? Also, in th...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Fixed upstream? Sounds vaguely positive ;-)

How am I going to get that?

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

So, additionally, and maybe more to the point of one of those issues, how do I prevent the automatic service restart after it crashes?

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Yes, I do want to be able to restart the service manually, so that I can see what the changes I make in the conference file do. So, how do I remove that throttling? Right now, when I try to play via remote I get this in the log: [2017-07-14 11:46:28] [DEBUG] db: Running query 'UPDATE queue SET file_...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

OK, so I am in growing trouble. I have updated forked-daapd on Wheezy, with the result that my USB audio is not seen any more. I then thought this would be a good opportunity to go to Jessie. At this point I have forked-daapd running, and I have USB audio going when I run speaker-test. However, fork...

Re: corrupted files on raspbian jessie 2017-07-05

I can confirm that this worked for me on a Mac:

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

I am opening an issue on gitHub, where I am including some log snippets. Interestingly, when I look at a song file with the wrong artwork on the Finder (via file sharing to the RPi), it does have the right icon, showing the correct artwork. The song with the missing artwork has none (on the RPi). I ...

Album Artwork missing & incorrect

I have a large collection, about 10,00 songs on a USB spinning hard disk connected to an rip 2. Both in iTunes on MacOS and in Remote on iOS there are problems with the artwork display. Only about 50% of images get populated, and about 20% of those are the wrong image. My question is if this could b...
