Hey,

Since it's working fantastic I tried to make it easier by adding the subsonic plugin into the confluence home menu. Unfortunately I didn't succeed in that after lot's off trying. Is it anyhow possible you take a look at that and send me the xml-part and linenr. to apply it in the skin. It would really make a difference having a button called Server or Subsonic in the menu since the plugin itself doesn't know the difference between video and audio. It would be great not to explain my mom go to musicpluginssubsonic to see a movie. Also connecting to different servers can be easier. Think about it, in the home menu a button called Subsonic and then a submenu next to it with all the servernames. Like this example:

- John
Subsonic - Peter
- Brain

No Idea if you like this but then you can release a skin with subsonic integration. Or a plugin with a home.xml to make it work. In my case this would be on Xbox and I would be really glad to have a home button called Server or Subsonic to make it even more efficient to use.

i don't know anything about skins, but if someone else does and i need to change something to make it work then patches are welcome or if someone can explain what needs to be done i will do my best.

could you not just use favourites? some skins allow you to set custom home screen buttons (i'm currently using aeon nox and that does).

i am thinking about the best way to implement multiple servers at the moment....

Quote:could you not just use favourites? some skins allow you to set custom home screen buttons (i'm currently using aeon nox and that does).

That is true but I'm not sure you can add submenu's on that, "if you know what I mean". Anyway when you have a home button in confluence you can tab to the right and see what that button contains. like: Music : files/plugins/etc. (so the sources in kind)

If we could make it work with a homebutton “ Server” : containing (submenu’s) server1/server2/server3
I'm sure there must be a way to attach a default1.py default2.py default3.py to this submenu thumbs and let them boot with the settings according to the number: setting1.xml setting2.xml setting3.xml files.

And really I might have it all wrong and be foolish but somehow I think it's possible.

I've been fooling around a bit with confluence and there is not much info about messing around with the home.xml etc. . But on my way I saw so many other skins that made it easier to add home buttons. Kinda set my mind on confluence I guess. But hey, why not try it with other skins. I'm convinced I can make it work. (launching subsonic from a submenu thumb located under the button "Server" in the homescreen.)

I'll give it a shot and post back to.

hi i just tried to install subsonic addon but it crashs xbmc as soon as I hover subsonic under Music-Addons

github is not down Wink

The URL you point to is the fanart for roadrunner plugin which doesn't exist!

That should not make xbmc crash so I guess you have a more serious problem with your installation...

Related question - any chance to use library mode for this plugin. In my case, I am using subsonic serve to stream my XBMC library when I am away from home. Within subsonic, everything is unsorted, which is a bit annoying. I am missing my XBMC library when away from home (e.g., allowing sort by year, most recently added, etc). That would be so awesome!!!

Thanks in advance!!!

are you saying you want stuff on your subsonic server to be added to the library? i have no idea if that is possible (anyone know?!)

incidentally the question you quoted doesn't seem to be a problem for me as i said earlier in the thread - if you have this issue could you give me some details?

I don't know if that's possible, Subsonic uses the folder structure rather than tags to build its library, and as far as I know the Subsonic API doesn't even expose the metadata.

t0mm0 Wrote:are you saying you want stuff on your subsonic server to be added to the library? i have no idea if that is possible (anyone know?!)

Yup, that's what I was thinking of. This would basically allow me to have a "real" XBMC-style library (with fanart, posters, etc), which streams in full-HD when at home and transcodes on the fly when away from home.

t0mm0 Wrote:incidentally the question you quoted doesn't seem to be a problem for me as i said earlier in the thread - if you have this issue could you give me some details?

My question is unrelated to what you are experiencing. Actually, the new Eden library (which I assume you are already using in the latest nightly) will allow mixed real- and non-real-library. That's why it should work well in library-mode with the latest nightly, but not using the stable XBMC Dharma.

Having said this, Eden will not help my question/request as my purpose is not only to have subsonic show up in library-mode, but as a real functioning part of the library (e.g., including fanart, posters, studio tags, sort-by-year).

Hey t0mm0!

I am having some issues with the plugin. It lists all folders and playlists correctly, but when trying to playback a file it starts and then stops at 1 second without having reproduced any sound. Do you have any idea why this could be?

Best regards! :-)

no clue without a debug log posted to a pastebin...... (search and replace on your password so as not to expose it)

t0mm0,

Any progress on supporting https? Will attach a log when I get home. Thanks again for this awesome plug-in.

This is weird but it is now working Big Grin I was very sure it was not working before. Just updated to the latest Openelec 0.99.7.

I reset to default values in the subsonic plug-in and used my http://name.subsonic.org and it worked fine. I was not able to use https://servername:port/subsonic or https://serverIP:port/subsonic or http://servername:22111/subsonic.

My subsonic is configure to use SSL. Thanks again for creating this plug-in.
