I used to have a nicely working mt-daap server which my old laptop (connected to my amp) running an old version of itunes could connect to and I could listen to music.
I upgraded to 12.0.4 and the replacement forked-daapd is pretty much total junk. I get disconnects (it just stops playing music which is apparently a known bug that has been outstanding for over a year), I get buffering errors. If I stop and start the forked-daapd daemon it hammers my hard drives for over 45 minutes during which time its pretyt much unrepsonsive to connections. It would seem that forked-daapd is a basically as dead as mt-daapd.
I looked at putting tangerine on their (despite my dis-like of mono) but it looks like that it is as broken when it comes to itunes.
Installed Amarok on my old laptop... no go.
So does anyone have a solution for a Windows XP laptop streaming music from a 12.0.4 server in terms of server and client software?
