I use PHP to query the database directly, and create an object based on those results. It prints a table, and a Flash file on top. Whenever a song is doubleclicked, it sends a message to the Flash file to request a playlist – which is an XML file that PHP puts together. Songs are transcoded on the fly, and plays through Flash perfectly.
If anybody is interested, let me know.04/10/2007 at 5:50 PM #3415
This sounds good. Does it play wav? (e.g. stuff that has been transcoded from FLAC)05/10/2007 at 1:19 AM #3416dcorryParticipant

I don’t know if it plays WAV directly, because I’ve been transcoding to MP3 to ease up on bandwith. I set this up so I can listen to stuff anywhere.
I store my stuff as flac, and use PHP’s passthru on this line:
flac -d -c –totally-silent
| lame -f -b 128 – –
Which, of course, pipes the output of flac’s decode to lame, which sends it through PHP.12/10/2007 at 1:27 PM #3417
I’d like a peek of your code. Upload it somewhere?26/10/2007 at 8:06 AM #3418
Never mind. I started a project of my own.
I have created a flash (swf) application that can connect to any DAAP-server publically available. If you put it on your own server you can stream your music using its flash interface.
It is still in alpha phase, but if there is any interest I can share the swf-file for feedback. I would really like if someone took a beat at the visual appearance of this, it would be nice if it looked nice. As of now its even worse than the horrible java-client.
It starts a download of the mp3-stream and begins playback as soon as enough information is downloaded. When downloaded, inbetween songs, the net activity is zero.26/10/2007 at 1:06 PM #3419
I have no coding or design skills but would be very interested in taking a look at this for you from a requirements point of view. Having a good player in the web interface would be killer.26/10/2007 at 1:10 PM #3420
Allrighty!! Let me just get the new listing functions to work then you can have a peek at it.28/10/2007 at 11:11 PM #3421
OK. Here is the file:
Please note that it is a very limited first version. A number of useful features is not yet implemented, such as “play/stop/next” buttons, progress bar, album graphics etc…
Click the artist, the album, the song to start streaming.
I’m streaming music to work from my server at home right now. 🙂29/10/2007 at 7:03 AM #3422
This is great.
- Really quick and easy to use already
Doesnt work in firefox but does in IE.
Doesnt play Wavs (e.g. transcoded from FLAC, OGG etc). This is a biggie for me. Lots of my music is FLAC or OGG. A little research suggests Flash wont do this out of the box, but there are solutions.
Great job. Well done29/10/2007 at 8:14 AM #3423
You’re absolutely right. Unless you transcode to mp3, Flash has no native way of playing those files. If you know a workaround I’d love to hear it.
I’m using it in Firefox so I can’t acknowledge your observation there. The “FlashDAAP.html” looks like this (totally Flash generated):
