Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

I made a new release (0.19.8.git66acc0-1), which prefers album artist over artist when showing the artist browse list in Remote. In my opinion this makes the artist list much more tidy.

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

If you're up to it, you could also try compiling forked-daapd on your raspbmc. Here's a short howto: 1. Get the source from git: git clone https://github.com/ejurgensen/forked-daapd 2. Install all the packages which the build depends on. Listed here under build-depends. 3. Run (in the forked-daapd d...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Do the log files say anything about what happens? Does music seem to be playing even though there is no sound? Since you have no local sound I'm guessing the problem might be incompatible versions of the alsa libraries between Raspbian and Raspbmc. Which versions of alsa-base and libasound2 do you h...

Re: forked-daapd with Remote 3.0 support

So I made some improvements and uploaded a new version (0.19.5.git48b7cd). I also opened a new topic about my package: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=49928 The new version includes FLAC support and better artwork support. Artwork will still only work in Remote, not in iTunes....

Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Continuing the good work of diegocaro and baal I've made an improved and working Raspbian package of forked-daapd. forked-daapd is an "iTunes" music server for Linux. It can: be controlled by remotes like Apple Remote on iOS, Retune/TunesRemote+ on Android or Remote for WP on Windows Phone be contro...

Re: forked-daapd with Remote 3.0 support

Yes, I don't get artwork in iTunes either, only in Remote. I seems artwork is served to iTunes in some other way, and I don't think forked-daapd supports that. There might be a patch for that somewhere, if you can find one I'll be happy to include it. You should be able to play songs from Remote (th...

Re: forked-daapd with Remote 3.0 support

Yes, please, Flac support needed here as my music is mostly in this format. Ok, I'll give it a try. I'll leave a message here if all goes well. The problem with this app is that I could connect to the server but because I had a huge library the app could never list my songs. All I got was playlists...

Re: forked-daapd with Remote 3.0 support

It's folder.jpg, placed at the same folder of the albums. But still not showing even after i rebooted and gave all the permissions is there any sort of file size limit or something? The .deb I linked to only supports artwork.jpg/.png and cover.jpg/.png - like the original forked-daapd. That's why i...

Re: forked-daapd with Remote 3.0 support

Is any artwork supported yet? Well, sort of. If your artwork is a cover.jpg/.png or an artwork.jpg/.png, then it will show. I'm thinking of making the file names configurable and then adding Folder.jpg, because a lot of my artwork is in that form (from Windows Media Player, I think). In which form ...

You can use TunesRemote+ on Android. I use it and haven't had any problems. For some reason it doesn't even require pairing. And I think it was free.
