Hi - I have some better news now. I haven't done anything, but my smart playlists are now playing. I'm not sure what the analyse command did, but things are working better than they have ever been :D .

Many thanks for your assistance with this.

Richard

I've uploaded an update to forked-daapd (version 26.2.69), because the performance issue @SoundBridgeUser ran into is also likely to affect other users, especially new ones.

@SoundBridgeUser thanks for notifying about the error. The output you posted shows that forked-daapd has not triggered a database analysis, and without that sqlite3 cannot optimize use of indexes. I was also able to reproduce on a new install of forked-daapd. The cause of the issue is a change in 26.1, which I have now reverted.

I've updated the version in the repository to 26.2.70. This version has fix which especially targets ATV4, when ipv6 is enabled. At least my ATV4 was announcing a number of unconnectable ipv6 addresses, so the new version checks for connectivity before registering an address.

I guess I'm not understanding the format of Internet Radio playlists. I've created the following file, called Internet Radio.m3u, in my library:

Code: Select all

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1,BBC Radio 4 - 
http://bbcmedia.ic.llnwd.net/stream/bbcmedia_radio4fm_mf_p
#EXTINF:-1,Barcelona Jazz - 
http://178.33.232.106:8034/stream
#EXTINF:-1,BBC 6 Music - 
http://bbcmedia.ic.llnwd.net/stream/bbcmedia_6music_mf_p
#EXTINF:-1,ClassicRock-Blues - 
http://streaming.radionomy.com/ClassicRock-Blues?lang=en-US,en;q=0.5
#EXTINF:-1,FIP Jazz - 
http://direct.fipradio.fr/live/fip-webradio2.mp3
#EXTINF:-1,SmoothLondonMP3 - 
http://media-ice.musicradio.com:80/SmoothLondonMP3
which I exported from iTunes - all the playlist entries (radio stations) work there.

However, in both forked-daapd and iOS Remote, I see a playlist called Internet Radio, but it has zero entries.

Any suggestions welcome!

The playlist looks fine, it should work. I’m not able to test it myself right now, but perhaps you can find a clue about what is wrong in forked-daapd’s log.

I seem to have 'lost' the log file - /var/log/forked-daapd.conf is empty (0 bytes).

Cracked it!

File format issue - because I exported the playlist file from iTunes on my Mac, it had CR line endings; changed to Unix LF (thanks, TextWrangler), and then recognised OK by forked-daapd and iOS remote.

Thanks, ejurgensen, for this excellent software! :D

I'd like to keep my radio station in que when I pause it. Right if I'm streaming a station via a .m3u playlist with a http: URL as the contents of the file and I use the web interface (or otherwise) to pause the music, the station/playlist is no longer queued up and I have to go find it again to resume playback.

I get the following error displaying on the web player.

Code: Select all

 Request failed (status: 500 Internal Server Error, url: http://forked-daapd.local:3689/api/player/pause)
Is this everyone's experience as well? Any fix?

forked-daapd is not able to pause radio streams (related issue https://github.com/ejurgensen/forked-daapd/issues/428) and always stops playback instead.

To keep the queue after stopping playback, you can set the config "clear_queue_on_stop_disable" to true (in the mpd section). At least in the web interface, this will keep the radio streams in the queue (some dacp clients do not show the queue if the player is stopped).
