    I'm currently running Ampache 3.5.1 and I have run the utility to download album art from Amazon before while some of my mp3s have existing embedded art as well.

    If you need any more information just let me know.

    EDIT: Sorry i'm running Ampache Mobile 0.0.3.

    Nobody in their right mind is saying it's the fault of the developer. in fact most people have thank him/her for the herculean effort.

I think that's a reasonable thing to ask for.
    No. Not what i'm saying. There in fact was a very clear disclaimer already. Surely, most people read it. What I'm saying is more from a business perspective and it's this: if you want lots more people to use a product it has to be much easier to use. And disclaimers deter use they don't solve the main issue. It's an issue when half the people in the poll can't get the server working. The problem isn't the app it's the server program.

    That's the last i'll mention it. I was not in any way intending to attack bjgeiser, or his efforts. I was merely, identifying a common problem i see when people develop technology based consumer products.

    Now we just need someone to make a slick boom installer for Ampache on windows.

    That, and a bit of automation and streamlining in the setup.

    I was thinking the same thing. I can whip something up if someone can tell me the dimensions of a Pre icon.

    Finally got this to work with EVDO today. I must retract my vote and re-vote to say "It works."

    Now the only problem is, I have nearly 4,000 songs so if I load my entire playlist, my Pre runs out of memory.

    Otherwise, the majority of my mp3s are not properly ID3 tagged and thus, its not the easiest to search for songs.

    Plus, I have a few songs that come up as "Unknown (orphaned)" and the player will not play these for some reason. The location of all my files has not changed. Any ideas?

    AT&T is my DSL provider, too. I needed to login in to the modem and configure the firewall to allow HTTP and HTTPS (HTTP was in its catalog of applications, but I had to create HTTPS custom), and THEN assign them to the internal machine I have hosting Ampache.

    To get to it from my Pre, I have to use the external IP address of my router.

    My two soft spots in this configuration are that my server is DHCP, so it's possible that the port forwarding could become invalidated, and that my external IP address could change, which is what dyn-dns would be useful for. At this point, though, both addresses are stable enough for my purposes.

    The additional wrinkle you may have in your network is if you have a router that's separate from your modem. If that second router is performing NAT (and it's likely that it is if you're using 192.168 addresses-- my AT&T router provides 172.16 addresses internally), then you will want to turn off routing/NAT in the router separately so it just acts like a switch, and let the modem handle DHCP internally. This is what I had to do in my configuration, so your mileage will definitely vary.

    Once BJ got that bug worked out with the album art, the thing kicked off like a champ. Even just in the house, this is a great solution to get music where I want it-- I can hook my Pre up to any set of speakers lying around the house and put on a great big oul' shuffle. It's superfantastic.

    Now, I wonder if there's a way to play Ampache through a Chumby.
    so how would i got about doin this

    Help.

    I need more help.

    When I load the "localhost" link, my browser tells me I have it installed properly on my mac. So that's good.

    I managed to find the port forwarding setup on my airport extreme, and forwarded port 80 to port 8888 (using the local ip, 10.0.x.x, of my mac). Is that right?

    I downloaded ampache mobile, set up the "url" as http://<my external ip>/ampache and my username and pw (just "root" right now because I don't know how to change it). Is that also right? If so, why the errors still?

    Thanks. I feel like I'm getting close.

    I deleted MAMP and am trying Xampp instead. I've downloaded ampache to my mac, but can't figure out how to install it?

    Okay so just to be sure, you not only have xxamp set up, but you can also go into http://localhost/ampache as well right? If not be sure to install ampache as well using the windows xp instructions I gave you. Then it should be easier. And I don't know too much about port forwarding I have it set up on port 80 however you might have something already on that port.

    Edit:
    I deleted MAMP and am trying Xampp instead. I've downloaded ampache to my mac, but can't figure out how to install it?
    use this link: install:windows [Ampache :: Wiki] you should have installed xampp into your applications folder and there should be many other files besides the "xampp control" application. these folders are for setting up your apache server. it isn't like a normal install where you have an installer or a disk image. I'll show you a portion of the installation process for ampache that is on that instructions page to get you started. I'll replace some of the words in order to fit the mac so you can see how to sort of translate some of the windows lingo to fit your mac (changes are bold):

    At this point install XAMPP it should install to the Applications/xampp folder.

    Now the next thing I did was to unpack Ampache (stable.tar.gz)...unpack it on the desktop...this will result in a file named ampache-3.3.1.7. Rename ampache-3.3.1.7 to be ampache and place ampache in the Applications/xampp/htdocs folder.

    I can't go to http://localhost/ampache. I've downloaded ampache but I feel really stupid when I look at the installation instructions. I guess I'm giving up.

    ok...I was able to follow your instructions and get ampache installed...I can go to http://localhost/ampache...

    now what? I still can't connect to the server via my phone.
