Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

I have released a new version of forked-daapd to my repo, it is 26.5.81. This version is only available for Stretch, since Jessie is getting too old (especially Jessie's ffmpeg). There are some substantial changes since the previous version: - No more downsampling to 44100 unless the output requires...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

What is the corresponding log file for when it works using the web interface?

And are you actually serving the file (or stream?) from a web server on localhost? Since it says connection refused it would seem you aren't.

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

"mpc play" should work, so I don't have an immediate answer. Please provide some more details: 1. Which version of forked-daapd (where did you install from) 2. The commands you issue 3. What the log says* in response to your commands (try setting the log level to debug in the config) * Please don't ...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Sounds like it could be a bug due to recent changes in the master branch on github. The pipe input hasn’t really been tested after those changes. It would be good if you could open an issue on it.

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

The type of share should not make a difference. You can narrow the cause like this: Run "sqlite3 /var/cache/forked-daapd/songs3.db" and then "select media_kind,path from files where path like '%wdmc_audiobooks%';" (then quit with ".quit"). If this shows media_kind as 8 then forked-daapd has identifi...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Yes, I think you are the first to ask this question :-) RTSP is not a specific encoding, and forked-daapd doesn't as such support talking to rtsp servers. But what happens if you edit the m3u and change rtsp:// to http:// or https://? Can forked-daapd then play the stream? Maybe it is as simple as t...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Unfortunately Spotify has broken this feature, and as far as I know they do not currrently provide a way to support this. My own workaround has been to set up a nightly cron job that triggers an update.

I think @EckartH is on to something. Could you install the utility uni2ascii and then run "ls 14 Så Går VI Rundt Om En Enerbærbusk.m4a | uni2ascii" and then cut and paste the string from forked-daapd's log file and then run "echo "[the string]" | uni2ascii".

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Ok, but what is the filename + path? What the filescanner does is take the filename from the XML and then it tries to match it against the filename in your library. So I would like to know both.

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Maybe there is a bug in the string comparisons if the filename has international characters. Could you give an example of a file that is not matched? I would like to know the filename + path in your library, and also how the item is listed in the xml (so try to find it there and post the info).

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

You could try deleting the cache. Just stop forked-daapd, delete cache.db (probably in /var/cache/forked-daapd/) and restart.

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Well would should happen is that everything gets disabled, not deleted, so maybe there is a bug. If you could add an issue on github with exact steps to reproduce it would be very helpful.

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Interesting that smart playlists can cause out of memory. I can't think of any particular reason for that.

The deb file from my repo installs a service file with After=remote-fs.target, I would think that should do it. Is it possible you aren't mounting via systemd?

I think it might take a month or two, more testing is required. However, you can always get the latest from github if clone the repo (or, if you already did, then run "git pull") and then build following the instructions in the INSTALL file. Just remember to backup your config file before running "s...

The polling shouldn't disturb the web interface, so @chme or I will have to take a look at that. Have you looked at getting the status with "mpc status" from the command line?

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

The radio streams should show up in the "Internet Radio" view in Apple Remote (and only there). If you can't see that view, then press "More" and find it there. They will not show up as playlists unless you enable this option: https://github.com/ejurgensen/forked-daapd/blob/master/forked-daapd.conf....
