Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Have been searching for a solution to a particular scenario for some time without luck but i think this might give me what i need! I have two apple homepods one upstairs one down. My use case is quite simple, in the mornings i would like my pi to use a radio stream url (bbc2) as an alarm and automa...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

As an alternative to mpc or the dacp/daap requests, you can also use the JSON API to get the playback status: https://github.com/ejurgensen/forked-da ... yer-status.

I will try to reproduce the connection problem to the web interface.

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

It looks like the url

Code: Select all

http://stream.liquidcompass.net/KBEMFMAAC.pls
is not correct. Following the link in the browser returns an error that the server is not reachable.

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

@cdlenfert with "path is" you only get the tracks with an exact match. I think you are looking for "path starts with" plus the absolute path to the directory that you want to match. "Dads Collection" { data_kind is file and media_kind is music and path starts with "<absolute path to Main Forked-Daap...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

forked-daapd is not able to pause radio streams (related issue https://github.com/ejurgensen/forked-daapd/issues/428) and always stops playback instead. To keep the queue after stopping playback, you can set the config "clear_queue_on_stop_disable" to true (in the mpd section). At least in the web i...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Question 1: When I shuffle my songs, is it possible to get forked-daapd to skip the "pipe" track if nothing is being output to it? Currently if I play to my shairport-sync speaker (on the same Pi) it fills the pipe and forked-daapd plays the pipe audio automatically (which is how it should work). I...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

There is already an open issue at https://github.com/ejurgensen/forked-daapd/issues/202

And some initial investigation was done. Unfortunately the work was never finished.

Hi BushAl, to get the maintainers (ejurgensen) attention, it is better to ask/report forked-daapd related questions/problems either in his thread https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=49928 or by opening an issue on the github repository at https://github.com/ejurgensen/forked-daap...

Hi, the command "mpc enable" expects the speaker id as parameter. You can get the speaker ids by running "mpc outputs". This prints a list of the available speakers with their name, id and state. After this run "mpc enable" with the id of the "Ensuite" speaker. Running once again "mpc outputs" you c...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Hi timk_, forked-daapd is not able to read nfs-shares directly. Instead you can mount the drive into the filesystem. There are lot of guides out there, basically you need to edit "/etc/fstab" and add a new line to the end of file similar to: 192.168.0.225/mnt/media /public nfs defaults,noatime,noaut...

Hi h00tzy, too bad, that the import still does not work on your setup. The changes made in 23.4.49 solved the problems i had with MPoD, so i hoped it would solve them for you as well. Did you upgrade the existing song3.db from version 23.3.44 or did you delete it and start from scratch? LordMyschkin...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Thanks ejurgensen and chme, that's really helpful. Do you sometimes get this mpd error: 'error: Connection refused'? Wondering if it's a poor internet connection. Restarting forked-daapd does the trick, but is not efficient. I am not getting this error. If you can reproduce it, a debug log might gi...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

An additional option to increase the startup time is setting "vacuum" to "no" in the sqlite section of the config file. You can run forked-daapd along side mpd as long as you change the port number for the mpd protocol in forked-daapd.conf. mpc gets the port parameter passed as -p argument (e.g. "mp...

I can also reproduce this issue with a clean jessie-lite image on my rpi 1 model B. I just have to add a nfs mount in /etc/fstab and enable the rpcbind service with "sudo systemctl enable rpcbind".

If you activate the "http_port" in the mpd-section of the forked-daapd.conf file, it is also possible to retrieve artwork to a specific song through: http://[host]:[http_port]/[virtual path to the song for the mpd protocol] (e. g.

You can use the configure switch --without-alsa or --without-oss4 to compile without local audio. For example: ./configure --enable-spotify --enable-lastfm --enable-itunes --enable-mpd --without-alsa The clients will still list the local audio output but instead of using alsa/oss4 a dummy output is ...
