RE: [Apps] Music Player Daemon (MPD) C200/A200
Hi,

I can also confirm that my mp3 collection is working now. However, if I skip songs within a playlist very fast and often, the song I would like to listen to eventually will not be played correctly (sound is strange and stutters). I have to play the song again from the beginning and in this way it is playing fine.

Another thing I tried was HTTP streaming using VLC on my computer. I can also confirm that this is working, so that I can listen to the music played on the pch via mpd and at the same time I can stream this music from my pch via mpd to my computer. However, I would not call it a good multi room solution because the music does not play synchronously. Maybe I have to say good bye to the idea of using mpd as a basis for multiroom sound.

Anyway, thank you for the update and your hard work in general.


Another qeuestion: Within my mpc app on the iphone I should be able to play last.fm music via mpd. It does not work. Is there anything else to configure or install on the c-200 to play last.fm via mpd?

Thank you guys so much! It's working fine over here.
Only thing I notice is that bass seems a tad more present compared to normal playback. Maybe I should fondle a bit with some settings. And volumecontrol doesn't work (but I guess that's inherent to the streaming nature of the solution, if there's ever a plugin compiled this should be sorted).

You guys made a very happy man!

Question:
Does the myhihome server need to be running?

I would rather stop it if not, since i don't use it for anything else.

Yes, we must keep it easy on the seek/skip actions... But a stop/start bring the music back if something goes wrong.

I don't know how we could sync different players, with different buffering scheme... Maybe Sonos or Squeezecenter systems manage to do it, but I'm not that sure they can guaranty it. (and at what price!)

No idea... Someone else already played with it?

I don't see any reason for bass being heavier, but who knows.
You're speaking about mp3 files? Or flac files?
Mp3 decoder is not the same as C200 native one, but flac files shouldn't be different.

You are right.
But anyway, using something different than volume level = 0 on C200 is not the best idea.
Volume should be controlled by your pre-amp or your receiver.

You don't need myihome for mpd.
It's mandatory for mpdjb, but this one doesn't work... yet Tongue

RE: [Apps] Music Player Daemon (MPD) C200/A200
Works like a charm on my C200 box .. with a +200gb library mounted on my linux server. Only thing that is not working is that when i search using any MPD client .. MPD hangs and sound output stops.

Anyone knows whats up with that ?

RE: [Apps] Music Player Daemon (MPD) C200/A200
I have probably the same issue, doesn't matter if i use android or windows client.
But i don't mind that.

It's not that it stops playing, but the music stutters a little when browsing with the client.
If i stop browsing it plays normal again.
Maybe because MPD is a http server and the client uses bandwith?

It only happens with transcoding of mp3 files to FLAC, and then only certain files. I'll have a looksee what mp3 profiles distort the most.

From a user-convenience perspective I'd say: I am lazy and if I can control lots of stuff with one controller (my phone) then that's all fine and dandy Smile It's no biggie, I am just merely pointing out a wish of mine.

New question:
MPD is now set up to output to the device itself. Is there a way to make mpd output to both remote devices (via a client) and the device itself? This way I could listen to music stored on the PCH via a client installed on my phone and listen to it anywhere Smile

I think it's because 2 processes on C200 need high priority :
- mpd
- http streaming playback on C200

When MPD asks a lot of resources (during a search for instance), the playback may be affected.

If your phone can play an http stream encoded in flac, in a way or another (vlc maybe...), you can connect to the same mpd output.

My Phone can actually handle FLACs, however, I doubt it can handle the bitstream on 3G Smile On wifi, it should be possible though.

Hi Blues,
You told that your setup "work like a charm" and I have o quite close setup and did not manage to make MPD search in the NAS directory.
I tried //freenas/musique
//ip of the nas server /musique

had no success... but using the standard /share/musique, worked "out of the box".
can you please tell me how did you mount you linux drive into MPD?

cheers
Julien

RE: [Apps] Music Player Daemon (MPD) C200/A200
@julio75014

1) First create a SMB share on your linux box called Music
2) On the C200 add a new share called Music and point to the SMB share on your linux box
3) Because of the limitations on the C200 .. only 1 share is mounted at a time, which means that you will have to have the Music share open on the C200 so it will be accessible for the MPD.
4) Edit the mpd.conf file and set:
"music_directory "/opt/sybhttpd/localhost.drives/NETWORK_SHARE/Music"

Now the MPD server on the popcorn should read all your mp3 files on your network share.

Cheers,
Blues-
