Re: MPD serving up to 14 devices at a time

Audio out: there is no audio port on the RPi0W, so we'll use an USB audio dongle (is that what you meant by "USB DAC"?). Here's something cheap which we shall avail for testing and if it works well we will buy more You will probably be disappointed in the sound quality from such USB DACs. Far bette...

Slow switching between the tracks

Hi, I observe slow switching between the tracks on my RPI2 MPD player. For example when I press next or previous track I wait 4 sec. (in case of 16/44,1kHz flac files) and about 14 sec (in case of 16/384kHz files). It is strange because when I load .cue file (which is treated as playlist) the switch...

I installed MPD on my home Ubuntu server (router, firewal, NAS, OPenVPN etc) and on several Wifi and LAN hosts. So I use MPD in the satellite mode.

Re: problem with connection of other instance of MPD

I am inattentive... :twisted:
Instead of music directory set:

Code: Select all

"smb://ela:sowa@10.10.10.1/hd3/MUSIC"
I had:

Code: Select all

"smb://ela:sowa@10.10.10.1/hd3"
After the change I can play the music on my RPI host :)

BTW can I add other music directories to 'music_directory'?
If so what is the syntax?

Ofcourse exist.
I can play files from //10.10.10.1/hd3 share on my wifi WIN7 device.

Please have look at samba configuration (Iink from my first post in this thread).
Maybe I should change something there?
