Server won't start / won't stay active

Tue Jul 01, 2008 7:32 pm

Lately my media server won't stay active. I can click the icon in system tray, click the START SERVER icon, sometimes will start it (changing color of icon in system tray), but then changes color to inactive after 3-5 seconds. Using XP. Details below. Tried rebooting, etc., nothing seems to keep it running.

Firefly Service 1.0 svn-1586 C:\Program Files\Firefly Media Server\firefly.exe
FireflyShell 1.0 svn-1586 C:\Program Files\Firefly Media Server\FireflyShell.exe
DAAP Output Plugin 1.0 svn-1586 C:\Program Files\Firefly Media Server\plugins\out-daap.dll
RSP Output Plugin 1.0 svn-1586 C:\Program Files\Firefly Media Server\plugins\rsp.dll
FFMPEG Transcoder Plugin 1.0 svn-1586 C:\Program Files\Firefly Media Server\plugins\ssc-ffmpeg.dll
WMA Transcoder Plugin 1.0 svn-1586 C:\Program Files\Firefly Media Server\plugins\ssc-wma.dll

I'm having a similar problem

you have to check "start server when windows starts" or it will not start at all.

anyone else got this bug?

I have uninstalled bonjour and firefly both, reinsalled, virus checked, etc., etc., and cannot get the media server to stay running.

Checking the log files, for what? How?

In my case, everything works fine except that firefly stops after a couple of hours. Below the last lines of the log file.
Any idea?

It may not like that long filename. I'd suggest renaming it, trashing the .db or .db3 file, then undertake a full rescan. You could bump up the log level to 5 or greater as well and see what further info that give you.

firefly will not stay running

Fri Dec 04, 2009 8:20 am

I have had a Soundbridge for a couple of years. It worked fine until about 9 months ago when I changed my PC. This runs Windows XP professional - as did my previous pc. I loaded Firefly and Bonjour from the same disc supplied with my Soundbridge. BUT I have had problems ever since. Firefly doesnt start up in my profile - only if I log on as administrator. Even then it crashes after about 5 minutes. I sent a message about this while back and enclosed a copy of my Firefly log. I was asked to change the setting of my log so that you could get more detail. I tried to do this in the way sugegsted but it didnt work ie could change the detail of log information.

So I have been stuck like this for months - I can use the radio on Soundbridge but cant access any of my precious CD collection which kind of defeats the object of Soundbridge. I had thought this was a great device but right now I am just disappointed.

I see quiet a few posts from other people with similar problems. I am desperate to get this sorted. i would be really grateful for any hep and advice.

Hi dunderhead,

welcome to the forums.

Your Firefly version is very old. Please try the latest nightly, which you can download from Ron's server:

http://nightlies.fireflymediaserver.org/version.php

The latest Bonjour is available from Apple:
