I’ve just installed the nightly 1005-1 and it works right out of the box as expected. Now my Pinnacle Soundbridge is able to see mt-daap at last.
Happy man here :laugh:
Those people at Pinnacle should be very thankful that you fix the daap license problem for them.
Some minor problems:
1) In iTunes I have set the “group compilations” flag, but how can I achive the same behaviour with Soundbridge (RSP) ?
2) The cool art_filename feature is still broken. I’ ve checked the logs with d9 and the server seems to find my folder.jpg but they don’t show up in iTunes anymore. I hope this feature is back soon.
Great job Ron !!

well I tried 1005 and 909 on my unslung nslu2 and both dont work.
even with -d9 they just seem to hang somewhen.
Havent been able to properly trace it.
What platform are you running them on ?3rd May 2006 at 2:23 am #4221fizzeGuest
there has to be something else amiss as well.
While it came up with only a fraction of my mp3_dir fine, it refused to do so for the whole shebang.
I read something about “bad” UTF conversions, well. I deffo do have some mp3s with “umlauts” and whatnot, donno if that causes the mp3-scan to hang in 1005.
After a hang, I guess the last written entries in the songs.db do give some hints on what might have went wrong, dont they ?

I’m running 1005 on gentoo linux (x86) no problem except rsp protocol doesn’t seem to work with flac transcoding. It’s fine when I connect using daap to soundbridge or itunes but comes up format not supported when my soundbridges connect via rsp5th May 2006 at 3:06 am #4223ecosprogParticipant

I’d like to second this. Transcoding of my Apple Lossless files works flawlessly when connecrting to the daapd server through my Soundbridge but gives a ‘format not supported’ message when I select the RSP server plugin.
Is this expected behaviour, or should the RSP server transcode as well?5th May 2006 at 10:44 am #4224
Nope, the transcoding is currently tied to daap. I’m working on making that work. So far I’ve been concentrating on making a faster protocol, particularly for slow machines like nslu2. On my slug, it’s *way* faster to browse and stuff than daap. So that’s a win.
Next, I’m cleaning up the installer — making the nice user-y stuff… gui config tools, etc.
Once that’s done, it’s transcoding, then after that a stable mac package.
That’s kind of my timeline on the rsp stuff.

nice to hear that.
I suppose you de-underclocked your slug ?
On my underclocked slug a library with ~7K songs is quite a pain to browse. Notice that the HD is NTFS formatted, i dont know what the impact on performance is. I read about other users stating its painfully slow. *shrug*
with the nightly, I once had the library reduced to like 700 songs and it was considerably faster. I guess thats as real as n times log n goes *g*
Which takes me to an interesting concept:
Would it be possible to have multiple mt-daapd instances running, with different libraries ?
So I could have, say, my favorites in a slim’n’fast library, while I could have the whole shebang on a second instance running on the same slug.
Obviously changes in the scripts, config files etc are neccessary, but does anything else pertain the whole idea ?7th May 2006 at 5:51 pm #4226
It should go, yeah. You’ll need to use the -P flag to keep the pidfiles from stomping eachother, but that’s really it. Two config files, etc.
Re: speed, it must be your format. My testing library is ~6k songs, and it runs pretty snappy (other than initial connect with drive spun down).
— Ron9th May 2006 at 12:48 am #4227
well I juts fiddled some with sqlite3, and it really is snappy. So i suspect the soundbridge is the bottleneck here.
when I do a
select * from songs where artist like %blah%
it takes mere seconds. whereas to get the list of artists on the soundbridge takes 10-15 seconds, to browse by artist.
does anyone have any numbers for comparision on a NSLU2 / soundbridge ?

Has anybody tried this yet?
Different pids, different config files, but are different network interfaces required?11th May 2006 at 1:45 pm #4229
I havent, as I’ve fixed my performance issues due to the codepage-850 kernel module.
Sounds weird, I know, but thats at least what it seems like.
:unsure:11th May 2006 at 1:49 pm #4230
I’ve heard reports that it works. The gentoo package does it on a single interface, and it apparently works.

Why did I think port 3689 would somehow be exclusive to iTunes Bonjour? Sigh.
I’m now using different ports for different mt-daapd processes and everything works.12th May 2006 at 6:34 am #4232
Oh. Yeah. Don’t forget to do that. That’s the other thing that has to be changed. Obviously.
