    a) serve as a DAAP server?
    b) how about DLNA?

    thanks,

    It accutally does show up in itunes similar to Firefly buts not a daap server, as for DLNA im Using MiniDLNA IF you decide to use mini let me know i can help u set it up its very simple. FYI get the start up scrip from the SVN from source forge dotn create your own as it states in the blog. Hopes this helps!

    I actually let go of iTunes due to Subsonic.

    I think I can export the playlists (to m3u)... but only _some_ of the DAAP servers handle ratings.. and I'm not sure why I'm seeing so many disconnects when using forked-daapd (almost every 1.5 songs)

    I am playing with twonky right now b/c I just got a Sony network media player ($40 refurb) which is DLNA... once the 30-day trial is up, I may try minidlna.

    I'm trying to move away from iTunes.. I'm just trying to KEEP/MIGRATE as much of the DATA as I can (ie. ratings and playlists).

    Yeah, you really don't need both when you've got Subsonic, and there is even an iTunes theme available if you miss the interface of iTunes!

    Let me know how it goes with twonky, im looking for something to stream MKV and encode on the fly. i tried twonky a few yrs back im hoping its matured.

    I played with it for 20 minutes.. I was impressed at being able to stream video wirelessly to the box.. I did NOT yet try a full 20G BR rip (with mkv).. will give that a try this weekend.

    I've got to figure out the playlist thing too.. looking a list of 3000 songs, isn't the ergonomics I'm looking for

    Hoping to have time this weekend... life has been busy and not leaving a lot of time for this kind of stuff.

    EDIT: I'm not sure I saw Twonky show up in iTunes.. should it? Even tho I'm migrating from Mac being the server to Ubuntu, will still have Mac "clients" wanting to access the "served from linux" material.

    Twonky still doesn't transcode on the fly.

    PS3mediaserver does, that is what I'm currently using on my media server to stream directly to the TV. I've wound back to version 1.3 (current V is 1.5?) as it seems to work better with my Panny TV.

    [LIST][*]I've used firefly in the past, but mt-daapd is no longer maintained
    I may have gotten it to compile... using the clue I found in: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=11400708

    I installed all the dependencies (see the Natty package dependency list on launchpad).. and was able to get thru to the last compile which was failing
    Code:
    rend-unix.c:116:10: warning: ignoring return value of â, declared with attribute warn_unused_result [-Wunused-result]
    gcc  -g -O2  -o mt-daapd -lpthread -lgdbm -lid3tag -lz   main.o uici.o webserver.o configfile.o err.o restart.o daap-proto.o daap.o db-gdbm.o mp3-scanner.o playlist.o lexer.o parser.o strcasestr.o strsep.o redblack.o dynamic-art.o query.o mDNS.o mDNSPosix.o mDNSUNP.o rend-posix.o rend-unix.o      
    main.o: In function `start_signal_handler':

    /home/zimmy/tmp/mt-daapd-0.2.4.2/src/main.c:944: undefined reference to `pthread_join'
    webserver.o: In function `ws_start':
    etc...etc.. but I ran the last gcc by hand (with lib listing at EOL)
    Code:
    gcc  -g -O2  -o mt-daapd -lpthread -lgdbm -lid3tag -lz   main.o uici.o webserver.o configfile.o err.o restart.o daap-proto.o daap.o db-gdbm.o mp3-scanner.o playlist.o lexer.o parser.o strcasestr.o strsep.o redblack.o dynamic-art.o query.o mDNS.o mDNSPosix.o mDNSUNP.o rend-posix.o rend-unix.o  -lpthread -lgdbm -lid3tag -lz
    and I have a binary now... haven't tested it yet (at work) other than to verify version
    Code:
    ./mt-daapd --help (y|n|e|a)? yes
    ./mt-daapd: invalid option -- '-'
    Usage: ./mt-daapd [options]
    
    Options:
      -d <number>    Debuglevel (0-9)
      -D <mod,mod..> Debug modules
      -m             Disable mDNS
      -c <file>      Use configfile specified
      -p             Parse playlist file
      -f             Run in foreground
      -y             Yes, go ahead and run as non-root user
    
    
    Valid debug modules:
     config,webserver,database,scan,query,index,browse
     playlist,art,daap,main,rend,misc

    Well no Twonky for me it it cant transcode on the fly. I thought PS3MS was a dead project, i love how it worked but the ram max was 600mb and after awhile the java updates would kill it. I use to use t on a freeNas box loved it for the 3 month it worked. Has it been updated???

    Was finally able to test as well.. agreed Twonky does not seem to transcode.. I had an mkv on my machine, but it did not show up in the list on my DLNA box. Its does show up in the web-based list (via the browser on the server).

    To answer a different question, I don't think iTunes will behave as a DLNA/UPnP client.. only as a DAAP client, and I don't see a way for Twonky to do that... so far, I'm not seeing any universally compatible server?

    I guess I will try miniDLNA next.
