Streaming mms:// finally???

I have always been frustrated not being able to stream some of my favourite stations due to them choosing mms or AAC or some Windows Media Audio codec etc etc. Just tried the latest snapshot build and used the latest version of MPD (0.16.5) and using ALSA, I get some audible results!!! It isn't stab...

Re: Wifi streaming local, live audio to powered speakers.

If you really want to use some kind of IP protocol to distribute these streama around your venue, you will need to be build something as good as the AXIA LiveWire system, which has a guaranteed total delay of <10mS throughout the network.

Re: Error trying install sound drivers no valid architecture

If you mean it isn't using wifi - then yes, its still 'hardwired'. At the moment, because my device is more of a network player integrated into my stereo system, portability isn't an issue for me. It simply sits beside my amp feeding it audio. The ethernet cable is tucked neatly behind everything an...

Re: Error trying install sound drivers no valid architecture

Hi James, First of all: I had the same issues of course, and easily overcame them even though I am a novice Linux user. I encourage you to persevere! This project is still a continuing source of joy and learning for me. My entire sound system at home revolves around MPD on an ASUS WL-520gu and it is...

Re: little clicks and pops

I've just managed to install everything on openwrt-brcm47xx-squashfs-10.03.1-rc5 with extroot, nfs, samba, alsa drivers However I think, I've been still hearing some tiny clicks on .flacs, but this may now be caused due to files being copied in the background onto my new drive. I will check it more...

I will post my mpd conf file when I get home.

Heres what my notes from the install say: - Install fresh...

( Thats NZ time by the way!, we are living in the future over here remember? :lol: ) Putting "rc-5" is probably misleading, s...
