    Anyone have any clue as to why it would work fine on the pixi, but not the pre?
    (same results over WiFi or EVDO)
    Thanks

    Do you have the MaxBlocker or AdBlocker patch installed? If so, get rid of it and try again.

    Yup, I had AdBlocker but now it is gone. Still doesn't work.
    Thanks for the suggestion.

    OK, so know it is working, but not always. It seems to be intermittently connecting and when it does it will work for about 3 songs then I get and error. Next time it happens I will write down the exact error.

    Hi,

    Is there any workaround to avoid Ampache Mobile stopping after buffering the first song on a Veer running webOS 2.1.1? Deactivating to buffer more than one song is a pain...

    I love this app on my old Pre and would like to run it the same way on the Veer so I can give the Pre to my family...

    OK, now it seems to be working all the time. I had to set up two different "profiles" in ampache-mobile itself. One profile for WiFi and one for EVDO. The only difference is the IP address. The Wifi uses my home internal IP address and the EVDO use the external. Once I did that it seems to work fine at home and on EVDO away from my home wireless xmtr. Still not sure why it was working intermittently before this though.

    That's how mine is set up at the moment - a LAN address that only works with WiFi on, and a internet address that works either way, on a Sprint Pre Plus.

    It seems to work OK for me, but my impression, with IRC on the wIRC app is that the WiFi connection eventually drops its connection, even with a keep alive ping...

    So far the longest i have stay connected is about an hour with not problems. I will try to do a test this weekend.

    Yup, just about an hour then it gets "stuck" and I have to hit play, but it just restarts the current song and keeps going.

    Using my dyndns hostname, I can hit the server just fine, see my music, but it just won't stream on Ampache Mobile.
    * EDIT *

    It turns out my issue was not related -- database problems on my ampache server.

    Where is the dev?? This needs to be ported to Android, the current Ampache clients are atrocious

    Yes, they are. "JustPlayer" is by far the best, though. I've been trying to work with the dev some to get some things fixed. There's major language and timezone barriers that makes things VERY slow. I'm hoping he'll see my points and just open source it so more eyes and fingers can work on it...

    Ampache Mobile is, yes, but I was referring to JustPlayer. Sorry about that...

    Ampache Mobile may indeed be written with straight HTML5/JavaScript (Thanks Bryce!), but it still has a fair amount of webOS-isms in it to function (for the most part). That I can tell, there's also no real "easy" way to duplicate or simply "move" it over to Android without some major restructuring. I don't know when the last time you looked at Ampache Mobile's source was, but it's HUGE and I'm afraid that Bryce is the only one that'll be able to understand it...

    Hi bjgeiser, Hi all,

    the attached patch adds support for Metaview MBW-xxx app to Ampache Mobile. Perhaps you can integrate it into your next release.
    The song title and artist a shown on the watch if the patch is installed.

    MW150 - connect to your SonyEricsson MBW150 bluetooth watch

    I had Ampache Mobile working great on WebOS 2.1. With the new 2.2.4 OTA update, I am able to connect and retrieve catalog listing, but when I attempt to play I get nothing. Looking at the logs, it shows a 'login attempt', a 'login success', and a 'ping received', but nothing more.

    I have attempted both a wifi and EVDO connection. In addition, connecting and playing through a web browser works flawlessly.

    Anyone with the same problem or suggestions of a fix or troubleshooting approach?

    I have narrowed my problem to just those song files that need to be transcoded from ogg to mp3 and the problem only occurs on my Sprint FrankenPre2 and not my Touchpad. The very same file for the same user works on the Touchpad, but doesn't on the Pre2. MP3 files work fine on the Pre2.

    The debug message on Ampache Mobile says "Current (1): Download Starting, Buffer Ahead Not Used". But the download never starts. I never see anything in the log beyond the initial login and ping -- no attempted transcoding or downsampling.

    I have run the transcoding command(s) from the command line with no issues.

    This appears to be just an issue with the Pre2. Or, it has to be an issue with WebOS 2.2.4 vs 3.0.4 on the Touchpad.

    I would appreciate any thoughts on what to look at next.

    Hi,

    I had difficulties to use the double buffer (enabled by default) on my Veer. When it works, it is way better to use it as it allows to switch without gap from one song to the other. On my Pre2 I had no problem using it but on the Veer, as soon as the playing song was fully buffered, when ampache was trying to buffer the next song, playback hangs.

    I looked into the code and perform a tiny modification. Having modified this, it works perfectly on my Veer with 2 buffers (and even n>2 buffers). I remember having observed the same issue in the past with my Pixi, I could not try this modified version on a Pixi but it may do the trick too. If you want to have a try, I enclose my patch version. Be careful : it has the same id as the original Ampache Mobile App. If you want to preserve the original install, you may want to change this ID. Note that if you don't do so, you can always restore the original Ampache Mobile afterwards downloading it anew from the catalog, but you'll have to uninstall it first what will probably erase your app parameters (servers, background...).

    You are awesome!

    I have a pre2 and a pixi+, and both have issues with more than one buffer. The playback will just freeze and I have to stop and restart the song to make it work again. Do you have any tips on config tweaks for getting smooth playback?

    Hi,

    have you tried using the ipk I provided just above? It might solve the issue. You can install it with webosquickinstall. Tried it on my veer 2.1.1 and my pre2 2.2.4 in wifi and 3G, with default settings (2 buffers) it works fine. I think the problem (in my case) came for a conflict between the main audio object and the additional ones used for buffering. I slightly changed the definition of the audio object and figured out by chance that it solved my issue. I just removed the class attribute.
