Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

When I add a new playlist to my Spotify library (from a web browser), it does not show up in Forked-Daapd until I manually update FD. It's my understanding this is supposed to happen automagically ;) . Am I missing something? BTW, pretty new to using FD with Spotify, so I very well could be. I love ...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

I get output in the browser if I go directly to http://forked-daapd.local:3689/api/library/files?directory=/home/share Maybe the %2F is being output in the file path instead of /, but I don't know why it would be on one device and not the other. Update/Fix: I figured out the issue was that in one of...

Ahh, thanks! It didn't occur to me that it would pull the latest updates rather than the latest "release". All set on one of my boxes. On my box at work however I'm getting 500 errors trying to access the new "files" section. Trying some updates and rebooting to resolve. Update: No luck. still getti...

Any idea when there will be a new release on Github so people doing the manual install can get these new goodies?

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

I'd like to create smart playlists that include all music files within a parent directory and its sub-directories. I'm pretty sure I just need to use the path "field-name" and maybe define what types of files to look for. Here's my directory structure: Main Forked-Daapd Library Folder Dads_CD_Collec...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Can forked-daapd stream audio-in? Details: We have a record player which has a 3.5mm audio jack for output. Would like to plug this into a Raspberry Pi (using the audio-in jack of a usb audio adapter), and have the Raspberry Pi stream the incoming audio via Airplay. Can this be done? blackbeardrrr,...

Can you provide details on the local audio sync changes. Should it now be automatically synced with airplay?

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Have you tried if Shairport's "volume_range_db" setting has an effect when using a pipe? The way I understand this setting is that it expands the volume control of an actual usable range of a sound card. So if I can't hear anything when my volume slider is at 40%, I'd add a value like 60 to "volume...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

When I pipe audio to Forked-Daapd via Shairport-Sync (via my iPhone), everything works great. The only thing that I'd like to adjust is that the overall volume of the pipe audio is lower than the volume from internet streams, or files I play directly from my Forked-Daapd library. Note that I do have...

I'm running on 2 devices, and what I think are the same playlists are being handled differently on different devices. One shows all of the tracks i...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

forked-daapd should also be able to start playback with no output selected at all. I understand what you're saying here, and it's how I'm able to access the MP3 stream without selecting any of my outputs. This made another question come to my mind though. Is it possible to have forked-daapd start w...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

@cdlenfert, maybe you can try changing the audio backends of forked-daapd (and maybe Shairport) to Pulseaudio? It requires some setting up, see this https://github.com/ejurgensen/forked-daapd/blob/master/README_PULSE.md Thanks @ejurgensen. I had an idea to simply set Forked-Daapd to output to the S...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Thanks @chme. The smart playlist seems to have done the trick. As for why the mpd client on the Pebble can't skip the empty pipe. Well.. it shouldn't be much of an issue now that I won't be "accidentally" playing the pipe. But I did a quick test to see what gets captured in the log when I load the e...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Thanks for the info. I'd certainly welcome the "no infinite streams in a queue" feature.

I also wanted to add that as of late forked-daapd has performed much more reliably on my Pi Zero W than it did in past versions. So much so that I'm holding out on upgrading to a Pi3. So thanks!

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). M...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

I got it all set up, and it's awesome! So much better than using http requests. Once I got the port correct and realized I didn't need to enter a password, setup was a breeze. Controlling my Pi with my Pebble is super handy. Thanks for the help.
