Also you can grab a random artist. I'll release it once I get the kinks worked out of the random album selector, but its pretty damn cool the way its working now.

    Random all music would require a complete rewrite of the music player code and I'm not really ready to do that.

    How hard would it be to have a setting option which, when toggled, would preload the next song to minimize the gap between songs? I understand that would be a increase in bandwidth consumption, but for those of us with unlimited bandwidth it would really be great as a toggled setting.

    There has been a lot of talk around "Shuffle All"...

    My current plan to address is an addition to the new random page. As its currently implemented. You tap random songs, it gives you the option to load 10,25,50, 100 or 200 songs. I randomly choose a song number and grab just that one song, i keep doing this until I've accumulated the number of songs you've requested. It takes FOREVER. The alternatives is to pull down all the songs from your server. This is not really a possibility as its even more painful.

    I'm not really happy with the current performance so I've requested that Ampache 3.6 do a little better at randomness. So for some of these features to really shine we are going to have to cross our fingers and hope they can get them implemented.

    Once Ampache is capable my plan is to pull down about 200-1000 songs in a single request to the server. If you get thru the songs you can just reload the list and have a fresh 200-1000 songs.

    load average: 5.41, 2.12, 1.32

    and all i've done is load it and log in.

    hmm. also, i've switched from https://url:8004/ to just http://url/ (which redirects to the former url) and behavior is identical.

    datapoints, datapoints..

    Interesting... I haven't heard of anyone getting a OOM error with my app yet. I wonder if its because you are one of the few experimenting with SSL.

    I'm having trouble setting this up.

    The page http://localhost/ampache renders correctly from the server (my laptop) and I've already added ACLs, Catalogs, and have admin as the only user.

    When I try to connect to the page http://<my_laptop_ip>/ampache from my Pre on WiFi (which is on the same wireless network as the laptop) it will time out. This will happen from both the web browser and ampache mobile app (I'm using credentials that I use to logon to the ampache web administration portal)

    Anyone know why this isn't working? I don't know much about networking

    hmm...sounds like a firewall issue on your server. To simplify things, can you try the following test and post either worked/didn't work :

    (let's make sure Apache/XAMMP is working...)
    1) What happens when you go to http://<my_laptop_ip> from your laptop?
    2) What happens when you go to http://<my_laptop_ip> from another computer on your network?
    3) What happens when you go to http://<my_laptop_ip> from your pre?

    (now, while watching the log file created by Ampache...)
    4) What happens when you go to http://<my_laptop_ip>/ampache from your laptop?
    5) What happens when you go to http://<my_laptop_ip>/ampache from another computer on your network?
    6) What happens when you go to http://<my_laptop_ip>/ampache from your pre?

    Thanks for fast reply.

    1.) Loads the XAMPP for Windows 1.7.2 web page.
    2.) Don't have another computer on the network ATM.
    3.) Get the error "Unable to load page http://<my_laptop_ip>/ Error loading page. [2028]"
    4.) Loads the Ampache log-on web page.
    5.) Same as 2.
    6.) Same as 3, but with http://<my_laptop_ip>/ampache

    The ip address you're using for your laptop, where did you get it from?

    Hrm, it appears I'm slightly lost on what to do next. I followed the Vista instructions and it appears I'm finally on the step to log into Ampache Mobile, but I'm not sure what one adds for the URL.

    I figured it was the http://localhost/ampache but that doesn't seem to work, so I'm guessing I'm missing something? Help would be appreciated

    Edit; Apparently I'm more lost then I anticipated; I'm trying to log onto XAMPP and it keep's saying I'm not logged in, the problem being I can't find anywhere to type my login info into.

    #1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
    This isn't turning out as planned...

    Ampache runs on top of Apache/XAMPP. Step 1 shows that Apache is working locally. Step 3 shows that you can't access Apache from a remote machine. I wish you had a second computer to try on step 2... that would tell us if it was a pre problem...

    Based on the above, it looks like a firewall issue. Can you turn off the firewall running on your laptop and do steps 1 & 3 again?

    Don't worry about testing any steps above step 3 until you get step 3 working.

    BTW: If you have the terminal program installed on you pre...try this: ping <my_laptop_ip>. This will tell you if the network connection is working between the pre and your laptop. You have to have a network connection or Step 3 will never work. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ping

    First...you should really try to connect to Apache/XAMMP and Ampache on the machine that is running Ampache. Once you confirm that works, you should try if from another computer on your local network (if you can), then the pre. Why: because if Ampache doesn't work, you have fewer things to look at, as a possible fix.

    The way Apache/XAMMP works for serving web pages is it uses a "root" folder as the base for the site. When you type "http://localhost", Apache will serve up the files in the "root" folder and display the start page. In most cases, there is a DocumentRoot variable in the Apache/XAMMP file that specifies the "root" folder.

    When you type http://localhost/ampache, Apache will serve up the files in the "ampache" folder off of the "root" folder.

    I don't use XAMMP, but I think if you go to the "\xampp\htdocs" folder, there should be a sub-folder there with the string "ampache" in it...like "ampache-3.5.1" (In this case, I would type http://localhost/ampache-3.5.1, it should bring up ampache). This is the string you want to use as part of the URL.


    I hope this helps.

    I think that's the part that's confusing me. I understand the root folder and what not, but I'm unsure of how to connect to it from other sources.

    You can connect to a web server either by it's name or it's IP address.

    Example: both "http://74.125.45.100" and "http://google.com" will take you to Google's web page.

    As you can see from the example above, both addresses point to the same server. In reality, some magic happens when you type in "http://google.com" on a web browser: a server on the Internet converts the name request to a number request, like "http://74.125.45.100" and the Google web page shows up.

    For a more complete explanation, listen/read "How the Internet Works, Part 1" and "Part 2" on Steve Gibson's site at GRC*|*Security Now!*

    Since your music server isn't on the Internet (yet), you need to type in the numeric address rather than a name to connect to your music server. On my network, my server's address is 192.168.1.203 and I type "http://192.168.1.203" to access it.

    You can use this web page to help you figure out your "private" IP address. It list a "how to" for multiple OS's.

    Note: Don't confuse your "private" IP address with your "public" one. The "private" address is your computer's real IP address on your "private" home network. The "public" address is the real address on the "Internet" side on your router. Your router also has a "private" address...it is usually 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1.

    Websites like "www.whatismyip.com" and "whatismyipaddress.com" give you the IP address of the "public" or Internet side of your router. Confused...check out Steve Gibson's site at the link above. I think he does a good job explaining things.

    Note 2: "http://localhost" not equal to "http://192.168.1.203"... see localhost - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Ah, so it seems I can in fact log in through my laptop (after figuring out that I had to add /ampache-3.5.1 onto the end of the IP). After adding a few files to the playlist and opening it up in iTunes (apparently I haven't installed Winamp on my laptop yet, huh) and it actually plays, whoo!

    So it appears the server is working, which is a good thing! But, on the other hand, it seems as though I can't connect on my Pre yet. I keep getting an "Error: Empty Response".

    I hate to keep bugging you, but any idea what's the next course of action is? :P
