Re: Which Upnp Server

MiniDLNA builds up the index very quickly, and rebuilds per folder. So it will only rebuild the folders that have something new in them.

Re: Media server

Short answer? Yes.

Long answer? Kinda.
Totally depends on what you actually want to stream and how. Transcoding won't work. But just pushing out video/audio to a different device is not that hard. The only difficulty will be speed. But as long as you don't connect a lot of clients it should be fine.

Re: Which Upnp Server

As you already stated that you also want to use your pi as some sort of cloud (owncloud.org?) I would just use MiniDLNA, I don't have any experience with it personally but do know that it works and its nice and light-weight. Media Tomb is not. Don't even know if it would actually run on the Pi. If y...

Re: Use as a mico-server 24/7?

It'll be fine. There are things you can do to minimize the SDCard writes because as you say, they will eventually wear out. I forget the name of the software (ZRam rings a bell but don't quote me on that) that stores all logs in RAM and only does an hourly dump from RAM to the SD card rather than lo...

Re: LAMP / Vagrant

Just install LAMP.

Vagrant uses virtualization, which the Pi will not handle at all. Vagrant is for your deskopt/laptop.

Re: SqueezePlug for Raspberry Pi ready for download

SqueezePlug is primarily made to work as a media server.

SqueezeSlave, which is also included, is a Squeezebox software clone. Meaning that it works with Logitech Media Server but also with all other UPNP devices that can "Play To" devices.

Re: Mechanical Turk, timing, and the Pi as a server

I'm assuming you are making them listen to an audio stream, which the Pi can easily handle. I think your biggest cap will be your ISP's upload speed. As for the timing, if you make them listen to a stream, just make the "Get it" button or what ever you have capture the time of click and send it back.

Re: Streaming networked music through Pi

Yes a day late, but if you really want to do it easily just use squeezeplug...

Then install squeezeslave, and the Pi will function as a UPNP renderer, meaning that you can "Play To" the device.
