Re: Forum search not working

It's broken, but I don't know why and I have no time to fight with phpBB. I was thinking about shutting the forum down and move all discussions to GitHub. I never wanted a forum, but the guy who demanded one and set it up many years ago is gone. Now everything's up to me. Sigh.

Re: Playing zip archives outside music database using local socket

I think archives outside of the database/music_directory are not implemented (properly). Implementing that would be a good idea. Can you write a GitHub issue?

Re: can't figure out search/find request format

Let's look at this example: search (artist contains "red" ) This is a "search" command with 4 parameters (separated by spaces): "(artist" "contains" "red" ")" This doesn't look right, does it? The filter expression must be exactly one argument (see https://www.musicpd.org/doc/html/protocol.html#filt...

Re: HTTP Stream: Tracks switch every second

So your instructions above were wrong. They were very specific, but they were wrong. That's not helpful. It's a waste of time. Now we need to start from scratch analyzing your problem.

Re: MPD + PulseAudio = Jerky sound ?

What was the point of this "Group" setting? Why tell MPD to change the group (and drop all other supplementary groups)? Of course, this is broken.

Re: HTTP Stream: Tracks switch every second

"mpc play" re-starts playback at whatever song is the current song. This is not the proper way to resume playback after "pause". You can use "mpc toggle" to resume playback properly.

I don't understand. Can you rephrase, and be more specific? Maybe a verbose log would help.

Sorry, I have no idea of PulseAudio. I don't like it, and I can't help with it.

You're using the default ALSA device. Try explicitly specifying a "hw:" device.

Re: No audio produced by any mpd client

At this point I only want it to work such that the mpd server computer will serve the music to an mpc client computer, such that I can browse and manage the songs being played on that client computer using something like mpc, and hear the music on that client computer. This is not how MPD works. Di...

Re: How to authenticate client using libmpdclient?

You need to connect via local socket.
If you develop a client, never hard-code "127.0.0.1" and 6600. Just pass NULL and 0. This way, libmpdclient uses proper defaults and users can override them by setting the environment variables MPD_HOST and MPD_PORT.

MPD 0.21.5 is very old and unsupported. You should upgrade to the latest version before you report problems.

No. MPD has extremely low hardware requirements, and Rock64 is overpowered by several orders of magnitude.

To analyze your problem, more information is necessary. See https://www.musicpd.org/help/

TSOC is not part of the ID3 specification, it's a proprietary Apple extension.
TMED, TFLT, TOWN sound rather useless.

Re: No audio produced by any mpd client

No, you did not actually answer my question. Neither ncmpc nor Ymuse are capable of receiving streams. They are just MPD clients, which means they control playback, but they do not "play" music. MPD is the music player, not ncmpc or Ymuse. See https://www.musicpd.org/doc/html/user.html#i-can-t-hear-...

You configured a streaming output ("httpd"). Which software are you using to receive and actually play this stream?

Re: Playlist does not play

You're probably a sad Debian user. Debian ships outdated and known-buggy package versions and they call it "stable". That gives me lots of support headaches.
