Re: Using Spotify with an Apple Mac

Use nicecast. If you search under my username + pandora, you'll find a thread that explains how to do it on page 4.

No reason why this should be any different with Spotify.

Re: Soundbridge on mac mini 10.4.11

You don't say what model of Roku you're running. Assuming this a soundbridge, unless you're running an M1000 or M2000 you will need to install Firefly or a similar server software on your Mac in order to play your music files. Firefly would be the advised option. Does the SB show in Bonjour on your ...

Re: Suggestions for DAAP server for Mac?

@dontodd I have a dmg of svn-1586 which I'm happy to pass you for testing. Also a *nix version for build your own. I'm old school and still on a PPC Mac so have no idea what the implications are on later OS (plus I run mt-daapd on a slug so my Mac/OS is irrelevant) but that's a stable release in the...

Re: New Router, Now Can't See Libraries, Help!

Thanks for the response. And this might be a dumb question, but if I rely on an Ethernet connection instead of wireless, should it work then? Thinking of trying a powerline adapter kit. I don't think so. I'm no expert but it's about packets of information being sent & received... wired or wirel...

Re: New Router, Now Can't See Libraries, Help!

Hi feralcow, welcome to the forums. On the basis that neither your firefly server nor iTunes (?) library can connect to the SB then it may be a problem with multicast settings on the router. However, having googled actiontec pk5000 manual multicast one of the first hits was this - http://www.amazon....

Re: Playlists from Itunes OS X

Hi Ragge, I´m happy that we finally beat it! Glad you got there finally. Without coming over all tech support :twisted: I don't recall you saying your music was on an external HD as I would have said the xml file should be on that disk as well... That's how I'm placed on my set up & yes, you'll ...

Re: Playlists from Itunes OS X

Well there's nothing there to suggest anything untoward. It builds a new database, scans it, finds the music, then (allegedly) executes a playlist scan. Have you tried adding a new playlist & rescanning and seeing that gets picked up? If so, then I can only imagine some kind of weird issue with ...

Re: Playlists from Itunes OS X

A little too much "geek" for me. What exactly should I do?


In the configuration page you can set the level at which Firefly outputs log file information. Choose 5, save it, then seek out the log file and see if there is anything relevant there.

Re: Playlists from Itunes OS X

From what you posted, the only thing that shows anything is the smart playlists option. Assuming you should have a bunch of playlists, they aren't showing up - which makes sense given that's the problem... :roll: This is an extract of what I see in my smart playlists: 551 Bluegrass/Country Static (i...

Re: Playlists from Itunes OS X

I found something strange in Firefly configuration first block: "Options missing from config.xml. The options below are in your mt-daapd.conf and Firefly uses them, but this web page can't handle them until they are added to config.xml. plugins:plugins". ?? A red herring I would suggest -...

Re: Playlists from Itunes OS X

But, where does OS X store my playlists? In the .xml file which resides in your Music folder - it's generally called iTunes Music Library.xml and no reason why it wouldn't be called that in your system, assuming you haven't tinkered under the hood (and incurred the wrath of BeelzeJobs :twisted: ) :...

Re: Radio stations no longer found

As jjaf says, that's a valid IP address - they take various different forms and 10.0.x.x is one of them, as is 192.168.x.x. etc etc.

Glad you're up and running now, Andy :D

Re: Radio stations no longer found

radioroger, I'm not familiar with the Airport Extreme having never owned/used one, but can you check that the Extreme is set to 'mixed mode' or equivalent. You should be able to choose b&g (& n) modes. Looking at the manual for the Extreme, I believe you need to launch the Airport Utility wh...
