forked-daapd is a DAAP (iTunes), MPD (Music Player Daemon) and RSP (Roku) media
server. It is a complete rewrite of mt-daapd (Firefly Media Server).
It has support for AirPlay devices/speakers, Apple Remote (and compatibles),
MPD clients, Chromecast, network streaming, internet radio, Spotify and LastFM.
It does not support streaming video by AirPlay nor Chromecast.
DAAP stands for Digital Audio Access Protocol, and is the protocol used
by iTunes and friends to share/stream media libraries over the network.
RSP is Roku's own media sharing protocol. Roku are the makers of the
SoundBridge devices.
Groups: daapd
- ALSA: off
- ITUNES: on
- LASTFM: on
- MPD: on
forked-daapd uses FFmpeg for transcoding audio playback.
The default ports/pkg build of FFmpeg on FreeBSD has a number
of options which could be SET/UNSET to provide support for
additional audio codecs.
If you find forked-daapd does not support the audio codecs you
require, it is recommended to recompile the multimedia/ffmpeg
package from ports with the necessary options ENABLED (SET).
You should review and edit the forked-daapd configuration
file /usr/local/etc/forked-daapd.conf before first use.
To automatically start forked-daapd at boot time:
# sysrc 'dbus_enable=YES'
# sysrc 'avahi_daemon_enable=YES'
# sysrc 'forked_daapd_enable=YES'
To then manually start forked-daapd without rebooting:
# service dbus start
# service avahi-daemon start
# service forked-daapd start
