Winamp DAAP Client plugin = http://sourceforge.net/projects/mldaap
I also tried this a while ago. It is not really local only – one can use RendezvousProxy to have it access remote shares.
BUT, and its a big but, the thing does appear to be quite buggy and and in pre-alpha state.
It doesnt support passworded DAAP servers, it has bugs when the DAAP share changes after it read it and so on. Plus the version is from 2006. No development since then doesnt sound very active…
Would be nice if this plugin was as actively developed as fireflash. But as it is its not very recommendable yet.07/01/2008 at 9:10 AM #14569AnonymousInactive07/01/2008 at 10:25 AM #14570blammParticipant27/03/2008 at 11:37 PM #14571RigasWParticipant
The dormant “GIT – Get it together” has been doing a great job in my installation for more than a year now:
I use the old 0.2.3 version of Firefly running on a slug with OpenSlug 3.1. It hosts more than 6000 songs …
In the meantime it proved to work well with firefly 1586 (on SlugOS/BE), too.
Client is a fan- and diskless via epia computer that has all its software on a 4 GB flashcard. (http://www.zonbu.com) I installed GIT on that Linux box. Box is connected to our flatscreen-TV. Operated with a wireless keyboard.
Performance is great: stable, fast, reliable … 🙂
The SEARCH functionality is fast as lightning; when you start git, it creates a local table with all your songs, so searching happens locally. As a result, you always get a list with all songs that match your search-string.
So when it comes to search-performance, it leaves FirePlay far behind.
Some things do not work, however:
- Playlists (this is the reason why I use FirePlay occasionally.)
No browsing songs by Genre (another reason for using FirePlay.)
In short: the combination of OpenSlug 3.1, standard mt-daapd 0.2.3 and GIT as player is VERY stable and highly recommendable.

Any way to get Songbird to work with Firefly?04/06/2008 at 8:32 AM #14573fizzeParticipant
There are no traces of a working DAAP-Plugin for Songbird. It’s been mentioned a couple of times on the forum.
