    Example mt-daapd.conf

    Can someone please post an example version of mt-daapd.conf? I can no longer log into firefly (:3689) and my mt-daapd.conf has no admin_pw or username fields.. :/

    Here's mine:
    Code:

    # This is the mt-daapd config file.

    #
    # extensions (optional)
    #
    # These are the file extensions that the daap server will
    # try to index and serve.  By default, it only indexes and
    # serves .mp3 files.  It can also server .m4a and .m4p files,
    # and just about any other files, really.  Unfortunately, while
    # it can *attempt* to serve other files (.ogg?), iTunes won't
    # play them.  Perhaps this would be useful on Linux with
    # Rhythmbox, once it understands daap.  (hurry up!)
    #
    # Failing that, one can use server-side conversion to transcode
    # non-standard (.ogg, .flac) music to wav on the server side.
    # See the ssc_* options below.
    #
    # To be able to index .ogg files, you'll need to have configured
    # with --enable-oggvorbis.  For .flac, --enable-flac, for .mpc,
    # --enable-musepack.
    #
    
    extensions = .mp3,.m4a,.m4p,.ogg,.flac,.mpc
    
    #
    # ssc_codectypes (optional)
    #
    # List of codectypes for files that the daap server should
    # perform internal format conversion and present to clients
    # as WAV files.  The file extensions that these codectypes correspond
    # to must also be present in 'extensions'
    # configuration value, or files are not probed in the first
    # place.
    #
    # Valid codectypes:
    #
    # mp4a - for AAC (.aac, .mp4, .m4a, .m4p)
    # mpeg - for mp3
    # wav - for wav
    # wma - for wma
    # ogg - for ogg
    # flac - for flac (.flac, .fla)
    # mpc for musepack (.mpc, .mpp, .mp+)
    # alac for alac (.m4a)
    #
    
    # Not needed because ffmpeg is enabled (all file types transcoded to wav.
    # If this behavior is undesired, see the [plugins] section and disable it,
    # or selectively disable codecs below with the never_transcode option.)
    # -joshk
    # ssc_codectypes = ogg,flac,alac
    
    # never_transcode (optional)
    # Comma separated list of formats to never transcode. (Nothing by default)

    #
    # ssc_prog (optional)
    #
    # Program that is used in server side format conversion.
    # Program must accept following command line syntax:
    #     ssc_prog filename offset length ...
    # Parameter filename is the real name of the file that is
    # to be converted and streamed, offset is number of bytes
    # that are skipped from the beginning of the _output_ file
    # before streaming is started, length is length of the song
    # in seconds (or zero).  All other possible arguments must
    # be ignored.  The resulting wav file (or the rest of
    # the file after initial seek) is written to the standard
    # output by the ssc_prog program.  This is typically
    # a script that is a front end for different conversion tools
    # handling different formats.
    #
    
    # ssc_prog = /usr/bin/mt-daapd-ssc.sh
    
    #
    # logfile (optional)
    #
    # This is the file to log to.  If this is not configured,
    # then it will log to the syslog.
    #
    # Not that the -d <level> switch will control the log verbosity.
    # By default, it runs at log level 1.  Log level 9 will churn
    # out scads of useless debugging information.  Values in between
    # will vary the amount of logging you get. However, you must log
    # to a file to see this debugging information (debug information will
    # not appear in syslog.)
    #
    
    logfile = /var/log/mt-daapd.log
    
    #
    # rescan_interval
    #
    # How often to check the file system to see if any mp3 files
    # have been added or removed. 
    #
    # if not specified, the default is 0, which disables background scanning.
    #
    # If background rescanning is disabled, a scan can still be forced from the 
    # "status" page of the administrative web interface
    #
    # Setting a rescan_interval lower than the time it takes to rescan
    # won't hurt anything, it will just waste CPU, and make connect times
    # to the daap server longer.
    #
    #
    
    #rescan_interval = 300
    
    # always_scan 
    #
    # The default behavior is not not do background rescans of the
    # filesystem unless there are clients connected.  The thought is to
    # allow the drives to spin down unless they are in use.  This might be
    # of more importance in IDE drives that aren't designed to be run
    # 24x7.  Forcing a scan through the web interface will always work
    # though, even if no users are connected.
    
    # always_scan = 0
    
    #
    # scan_type
    # 
    #
    # This sets how aggressively mp3 files should be scanned to determine
    # file length.  There are three values:
    #
    # 0 (Normal) 
    #   Just scan the first mp3 frame to try and calculate size.  This will
    #   be accurate for most files, but VBR files without an Xing tag will
    #   probably have wildly inaccurate file times.  This is the default.
    #
    # 1 (Aggressive)
    #   This checks the bitrates of 10 frames in the middle of the song.  
    #   This will still be inaccurate for VBR files without an Xing tag,
    #   but they probably won't be quite as inaccurate as 0.  This takes
    #   more time, obviously, although the time hit will only happen the
    #   first time you scan a particular file.
    #
    # 2 (Painfully aggressive)
    #   This walks through the entire song, counting the number of frames.
    #   This should result in accurate song times, but will take the most
    #   time.  Again, this will only have to be incurred the first time
    #   the file is indexed.
    # 
    
    scan_type = 2
    
    #
    # compress
    #
    # Whether to use gzip content-encoding when transferring playlists etc.
    # This was contributed as a patch by Ciamac Moallemi just prior to the 0.2.1
    # release, and as such, hasn't gotten as much testing as other features.
    #
    # This feature should substantially speed up transfers of large databases
    # and playlists.
    #
    # It will eventually default to 1, but currently it defaults to 0.
    #
    
    #compress = 0
    
    [plugins]
    plugin_dir = /usr/lib/mt-daapd/plugins
    plugins = rsp.so,ssc-ffmpeg.so
    
    
    [scanning]
    
    # should playlists be processed at all?
    #
    process_playlists = 1
    
     
    # should itunes xml files be processed?
    #
    process_itunes = 1
    
    # should m3u files be processed?
    #
    process_m3u = 1
    I think the only things I changed were the share name, music directory, password, and enabling the log file.

    ahoy, thanks for the copy of the file, worked for me now.
    was struggling to get daapd running, now its 100% thanks man.
