using latest volumo2 -> is it possible to use volumio with along with the mpd database proxy plugin? I tried but I did not get any response ie. db-list from the master mpd server (which works, I tried unter Linux on a different computer). To match the same path I made a symbolic link from the mounted smb share to /var/lib/mpd/music/ to match exactly the same folder structure as it is on the master server.
But starting volumio it did not find anything.
changes done to /etc/mpd.conf:
#db_file “/var/lib/mpd/tag_cache” #disable data base as external server does this
The configuration with the external mpd master server works, I tried out on a different computer with mpd.
While trying to connect to volumio via external mpd client to see whether the mpd instance itself works with the proxy plugin -> it seems this is not possible. It was not possible to connect to mpd on volumio from an external mpd client. /etc/mpd.conf lists:
but I also tried with the IP of volumio - a config that works on different computers without any problems. To get more details, I searched for a mpd logfile, but strangely it was not filled with logs. /etc/mpd.conf lists:
but it was neither there nor filled with logs.
Is this a general problem - does it require any further switches? I even rebooted and the changes are permanent (files are properly located under volumio_data/dyn/etc/mpd.conf on SD card 3rd partition even after reboot, so that should not be a problem.
thanks and best
