Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Hello. I am using the same version of iTunes. Uninstalled then reinstalled. Bingo. There it was :D Two final questions and hopefully the last. I have speakers set up to the pi and also another wireless airplay speaker. When using the remote app to play to both there is a slight delay to one of the s...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Thanks. Got it all sorted, at least using remote. You mentioned that iTunes would not see artwork. My iTunes does not even see the raspberry pi? The iPad remote app worked like a charm though.

My iTunes is the latest version. Could this be the problem?

Thanks.

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Thanks. Working. Had to rename them to cover.jpg

In the example just having 21.jpg did not work.

Thanks. This is excellent.

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Artwork Yeah, I followed the readme. Still no artwork visible. A example of how it is set up. Have a folder called iTunes, inside is a folder called Music. In this are all the album folders. For example 21 by Adele. This has all the music files that can be played okay. In that folder is also a small...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Got it working. Sort of. I had only installed avahi-daemon so the browse command did not work. Installed avahi-utils and checked the name of my iPad for the remote software. All was correct. Added some music to the folder and restarted forked daapd then changed the text file for the remote code. Thi...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Hello. Eventually got it to all install. Needed to get a lot of other lib files and then did a apt-get -f install about 3 times before it all came back okay. Forked Daapd says it is running. But when I open iTunes on my main desktop it cannot see anything else on my network. Tried paring with my iPa...

I have my raspberry pi running rasbian and set up as a nas, but what do I do with the .deb file? Desperately want to get this working as an iTunes se...

Re: forked-daapd with Remote 3.0 support

Hello

I'm trying to set my pi up as an iTunes server, I tried to follow the first steps on this thread but could not get it to work at all.

I want to be able to control my music via an iPad.

Can anyone give me a simple fool proof guide?

Thanks.

Accessing the shared file from another machine on my network can see all the files, but does not have permission to...
