[Solved] MPD & Pulse Audio - No Sound ?

Looks as though the problem is not with MPD and lies with Armbian(Ubuntu) + Pulse Audio and the combination of latest versions not giving audio output over HDMI, from any source. I'm not sure if this is for just for the C2 version, but it's a known issue since version changes Nov18 and being worked ...

Re: MPD & Pulse Audio - No Sound ?

I've not heard of any of the 4 pre-requisites to be able to compile from source, let alone if they are installed, pretty complicated stuff to get to play some music. Volumio - it is free (Android control app costs 2 or 3 bucks), open source, uses MPD under the hood and there are prefab images for y...

Re: MPD & Pulse Audio - No Sound ?

I've read the whole of the help page several times. One more thing about this. If you've read the help page several times, then why didn't you follow the instructions listed there? I post this help page link only to people who didn't follow it. Because the instructions in help use terms which requi...

Re: MPD & Pulse Audio - No Sound ?

@max - are you saying I have to compile from source? I appreciate the help, but it would be easier to understand, if you just said what I had to do, rather than posting only links, I've read the whole of the help page several times. I've not heard of any of the 4 pre-requisites to be able to compile...

Re: MPD & Pulse Audio - No Sound ?

Help says very little about audio output. It does say load the latest version of mpd. I loaded mpd with "apt install mpd" I presumed this would load the latest version. 0.19.21 has loaded. I see 0.21.3 is the latest. I tried "sudo apt-get update" loaded quite a few other upgrades but mpd version sta...

[Solved] MPD & Pulse Audio - No Sound ?

My set up is an Odroid C2 with Armbian Stretch 4.18.y OS loaded. I have MPD running on this. A small test music library of 10 Flac tracks has been created on this device. I have Cantata 2.0.1 as the Client, loaded. Cantata sees the music library and tracks appear to play, as the progress bar is movi...

Re: [SOLVED] Will GMPC run without a full dektop GUI

Got Cantata (MPD Graphical Client) loaded on my Windows 10 Laptop.
Configured and it sees the 10 track library I set up on the SBC across the network.
When I play the track from Cantata/Laptop sound comes from the HDMI monitor plugged into the SBC, so that's a great start. :P

Re: Will GMPC run without a full dektop GUI

Sorted the issue pinging from Ubuntu SBC to the Windows10 Laptop. Windows defender was blocking it, though there was nothing warning you this was happening. Also found out why pinging the Router (default Gateway) from the SBC kept constantly sending packets, this is what Linux, or at least Ubuntu ve...

Re: Will GMPC run without a full dektop GUI

laptop(wifi) Ping to default gateway, min 1ms, max 10ms, avg 3ms. The second time I pinged from laptop to SBC it averaged 26ms, even slower. I didn't realize this is classed as slow. I tried ping from SBC (Gigabit Ethernet) to default gateway, it got stuck and kept sending every 1 sec. I stopped it ...

Re: Will GMPC run without a full dektop GUI

@skidoo Tried some of what you suggested this morning. I had to log on to my router to check a few things and change the admin password from the default one. While I was doing that I looked at the connected devices and made a note of my Laptop and SBC ip addresses. I got on the laptop (windows10 wif...

Re: Will GMPC run without a full dektop GUI

"why are you doing it this way" First, I can't afford the NAS set up and price of a Tablet at present, operating from just a single low cost SBC would have got me an audio output. Second, my main priority is to get an i2s audio output from the SBC, so I can develop the hardware solution/chain needed...

Re: Will GMPC run without a full dektop GUI

@qwin> RTFM ;) Music Player Daemon (MPD) is a flexible, powerful, server-side application for playing music. (...) it can play a variety of sound files while being controlled by its network protocol. Looks like MPD is a kind of client server thingy. Server here you connect your storage and DAC. Net...

Re: Will GMPC run without a full dektop GUI

Uh, what is "minimal Ubuntu"? This has nothing to do with Xubuntu or Lubuntu or Ubuntu (or GNOME). I don't think I can help you further. It looks like you're trying to build something which is way over your head. You don't know what any of these keywords mean. You don't know how Linux works. You're...

Re: Will GMPC run without a full dektop GUI

GMPC is not a GNOME app. GMPC doesn't know or care if you have GNOME. It needs GTK, but not GNOME. If GNOME is what your question was about: yes, GMPC will run without GNOME. I'm not sure what your saying, never heard of GTK, like I mentioned I'm new to all this and thought the G in GMPC stood for ...

Re: Will GMPC run without a dektop GUI

I am considering a music streamer project using minimal Ubuntu on a Odroid C2 with MPD installed. Mission possible. Or stay in the x86 mainstream with some fanless Celeron mainboard. Initially I want to run GMPC on the same C2 to control MPD. X-Windows and with a desktop engine is not a minimal ins...

Re: Will GMPC run without a dektop GUI

What you write doesn't appear to make any sense at all. Do you even know what GMPC is? I'm new to all of this but understand it to be an MPD Client. I am told on another Forum that GMPC does not need a full GUI desktop/utilities and can be installed on minimal Ubuntu. That as it's a gnome app it wi...

Re: Will GMPC run without a dektop GUI

So, to be specific, does GMPC have its own GUI or does it use the OS GUI of the unit it is installed on. Presume no knowledge on my part, this is all brand new to me. When I eventually use a remote tablet for GMPC this will not be an issue, but initially I want to run it on the same machine as MPD, ...
