iTunes 10 breaks Firefly Media Server / mt-daapd

by Volker Weber

Read the discussion thread on apple.com where people complain they can no longer use their "iTunes server". Many NAS vendors provide mt-daapd on their boxes, so that iTunes can play music stored on the NAS. I have previously used that solution myself, but it became redundant because Sonos simply goes to the SMB share.

[Thanks, Artur]

Was hat das jetzt genau mit DRM zu tun?

The Firefly Media Server afaik has been unmaintained for years. The codebase is quite old and while it still worked most ports are based on the Build svn-1586 dated May 2007. Not breaking it for such a long time is not that bad especially since Apple never promised anything in this area. Having said that I really wish I could get rid of iTunes (Windows) although it deserves some credits for keeping my various Apple stuff in sync. It is a pity that I buy most of my music at Amazon nowadays but they have nothing that improves the handling of digital music besides automatically adding the files to iTunes. Sonos could probably solve some of my problems but my home is yet too small for buying Sonos equipment.

@Sven, sorry, you're right, no DRM issue, so ignore my stupid comment.

(Assumed that Apple broke the DAAP protocol on purpose, again. But apparently, they didn't this time.)

Hanno, I never fail to let you repeat after me. ;-)

Volker, actually, it's a wonderful meme. I really enjoy forwarding it. :-)

Henning, that's no excuse. I managed to fit three S5 and a NAS into my 45 qm studio :D
Would do the same again.
