Question, I believe a itunes server has a webbased management panel somewhere? If so, how do I reach it?

Thankst for any and all help :)

Thanks! That worked. Why didn't I figure that out, must have been the wall I kept smashing my head against. :p

Still another silly question. Where can I find out more about maybe making this itunes server available to users on the internet. (password protected ofcourse) It'd be really nice if i can stream to my workplace.

regards and thanks,

Jan

Nice!
Is there a default password?

You're jumping the gun a little... and no not a default password. Sorry  ;-)

As I understand it the only way to do this is to ssh tunnel into the server and the use itunes as if its on the local net. Not really what I was looking for and I haven't yet found out how to implement it on an SME.

Still .... it would be nice if it worked.

Hello Gerald,

Well I did a clean install of itunes and am very happy it all seems to work perfectly. Had some weird problem with the rpm's ... they just would not install.

I solved it by renaming all rpm's with simpler names like 1.rpm 2.rpm etc. It then worked like a charm. Maybe it has something to do with the backslashes in the name.

Anyway, thanks for all the info.

kind regards,

Jan

Aha!
I thought it was only me!
I believe it has to do with the portal application he's using (mambo).

Cheers.

Gerald,

Excellent work and great instructions. Works great.

Just a general question - I copied over my mp3's as root . I have tried to give my mp3 a rating but cannot as they are greyed out - under the iTunes File menu the option to give a rating is greyed out.

I tried changing the file permissions of my mp3 from 755 to 777 but it did not make them writeable to give a rating. Do you or anyone have any suggestions.

Cheers

Hi,

Just installed itunes server on my SME server, i tried to create a startup script by doing the following:

Code: [Select]
#/sbin/e-smith/config set mt-daapd service Initscriptorder 95 status enabled

Code: [Select]
#ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/e-smith-service /etc/rc.d/rc7.d/S95mt-daapd

this doesn't work, i still have to manual start mt-daapd, so how do i undo what i did above.

Also how do i create a proper startup script because at the minute i have to manual command the following to startup the itunes server:

Code: [Select]
#/etc/rc.d/init.d/mt-daapd start

and the following for the songs to show up:

Code: [Select]
#mDNSProxyResponderPosix 192.168.0.2 smeserver "Music Jukebox" _daap._tcp. 3689 &

many thanks in advance

New version of mt-daapd
« Reply #25 on: April 16, 2006, 08:50:26 PM »
Hi'

I've noticed, that there is a new version of mt-daapd
http://www.mt-daapd.org/
The new version supports iTunes iTunes 6.0.4
It can be downloaded from Sourgeforge
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=98211

There is a fc3 and a fc4 version. I suspect it is Fedora core 3 / 4
But i am running Sme 6.01, so I guess I cannot install either.

What do I do?

Hey,

The tutorial is brill but I am having a problem.

I have followed everything on the tutorial and I am seeing the folder in the shared in itunes but when i click on it it says "Loading SME Music" (the name i called it). But after 1 or 2 seconds it goes back to music library which again is empty.

This is happening on both my computers, Running version 7.0.2.16 of itunes and update rpms of all the required download.

I have enabled the log for the mt-daapd but its not showing any errors

Updated: - I come back to it this morning and now it is not showing up in itunes even though mt-daapd is still running.

Any ideas

Thanks

Hi Gerald

I have downloaded the latest iTunes RPMs from your site (a couple earlier releases - I didn't use those!).

I created an ibay to put them in and extracted them there. then I followed your guide by creating a director for the MP3 files at /mnt/mp3.

My problem is that (similar to above problem), although I *can* see my server in the iTunes (version 7) list as a SHARED Library, and even though I have a number of MP3 files in the /mnt/mp3 directory, none of them show up in the view when I click the Shared Llibrary for my SME Server (which is an 6.0.1 system).

I suspect that the mt-daapd file is not compatible with iTunes 7.0+ - what do you think?

Or is there another reason why I can't see the MP3s in the directory?

I did notice that looking at the admin web configuration page on port 3689, that "Rendezvous" was "Stopped", and clicking the link "Start MDN Service" does nothing at all, while the header does show "Configuration Updated".

Willing to work out my problems if you can help!

Thank you Gerald!

Hello

I have read that iTunes 7 no longer supports daap and so its probable that we'll have to downgrade to iTunes 6.0.4 to get SME server to be our server.

http://digg.com/apple/iTunes_7_users_wants_to_downgrade_to_iTunes_6

Any thoughts?
