Hi,

I see there is new version 3.6 of moode audio.

Does that mean that older versions will no longer work?

I have version 3.1, yesterday it worked fine, but today it no longer works.

 

You might have a bigger problem. I have 3.4 running without a problem. I also have 3.5 and 3.6 all testing. No issues.

Hi Tim,

 

I remember (but don´t recall where) you posted (a long time ago) how to enable that the scrollbar at the right side of the browser (in my case Chrome) will only appear once you scroll over with the mouse pointer.

 

Can you pls share this again (and also how to disable it)?

 

Many thanks in advance.

Cheers,

M.

I am using version 3.1 and upgraded my router from an Airport Extreme to a TPLINK AC5400. My Pi is plugged into the same cat 6 switch that the router is plugged into but now I can't use AirPlay over the router. I can see the Pi via it's IP number but not via moode.local or via AirPlay. Something must be blocking it in the router. Any thoughts?

Hi,

 

I think the scrollbar settings are at the url  chrome://flags

Hi,

 

I'd ask on the TPLINK support forum. Maybe their firmware has bug thats causing Airplay packets to be blocked.

Hello CA community, hello Moode users, 

 

I've been successfully using Moode for over past 6 months (last version: 3.1) w/o any issues. 

Couple days back the system crashed. (power shortage during update), so was getting "kernel panic" on boot. 

Now I'm trying to install it back (lastest 3.7 version). All works just fine until I ssh into the system and attempt to upgrade. Most packages gets updated, but nginx-common reports error and evantually Pi freezes on reboot. 

That was never the case with 3.1 version. 

 

Could anyone try to help me setting my audio server up ?

thanks, 

Phil.

@jcn3 

yup, I noticed that. I was a bit surprised, but I got used to moode and still consider it as best fit for my needs. Yes, I did purchased licence. I think it's worth it. 

 

Anyway, after diging a while I found solution. I noticed, that /var/www is squashfs mount, hence problems with write permission were obvious. The solution was to comment out this mount in fstab, update and uncomment back (with reboots in between). Now my machine is up and running :) 

 

@Tim - Thanks. Great job with Moode.

Hi Tim,

I already asked in post from november 8, 2016.

I wanted to browse DLNA server via Moode Player without NAS/SAM/CIFS share.

I think since the DLNA controller can do the job, why is this not possible to do it with moodeOs?

 

 

 

 

the quoted text shows your answer:

Hi,

 

Moode is based on MPD (Music Player Daemon) and I have not compiled it with the enable-upnp option which I believe would support browsing UPNP/DLNA databases. See article below.

https://www.lesbonscomptes.com/pages/mpd-upnp.html

 

Maybe in one of the 3.x releases I'll add this option to MPD.

 

-Tim


Any news on that feature?


(my current used version is 3.7)

I think only Firefox supports the the decoding of the BBC3 lossless audio stream within mp4.

Apparently others have made the above link I posted work in VLC, however only in the VLC 3.0.0 "overnights builds" which are apparently unstable beta or experimental versions of VLC proper.

 

But whatever that means with regard to VLC, it obviates the need for Firefox.

Yes and I did see mention in that blog post of this working on a Raspberry Pi, though other details on that were largely missing except to say they made mention of something called GStreamer. 

 

I am happy enough to access this stream using Firefox 51+, or even better sounding in my opinion through VLC 3.0.0.

 

But with that VLC "nightly build" I am not able to get any UPnP Renderers recognized, it sees my Server only, but not my Renderers.

 

So I'm back to holding some hope that Moode could use the link I provided to in some way offer this lossless BBC 3 stream as a radio station.

Hi,

 

Apparently BBC is using MPEG-DASH as the streaming format for this broadcast and DASH is not supported in the version (11.9) of the libav package thats included in Raspbian Jessie. 

 

libav version 12 includes DASH but I don't see version 12 in any of the Raspbian/Debian repos passed Jessie. It looks like the Debian package maintainers for libav have not updated it. Odd.

 

Here are some useful links:

https://libav.org/releases/libav-12.1.changelog
https://packages.debian.org/source/jessie/libav

@TimCurtis -- just bought Moode and installed 3.7 over the weekend on my RPi3.  What a nice piece of software!  Congratulations on the great work!  Currently using it as a renderer but really like the list of radio stations included in the application.

 

Only suggestion I would make is that the setup guide needs to be more clear that initial setup has to be done via AP mode (connecting wirelessly via Moode SSID).  I initially tried to connect via ethernet, but it appears that the ethernet is not available until you go in and specify a SSID (not blank), disabling AP mode.

 

Thanks again.

@TimCurtis When I first powered up the RPi, I used Ethernet. Couldn't access it, so checked the router and it didn't appear under attached devices. Rebooted a few times, but still no luck.

 

When I connected in AP mode with the Ethernet still connected, there was a message below DHCP saying not connected or not in use or something like that. Put in an SSID and the problem went away.

 

Now operating happily with static address using the same Ethernet cable!
