Daphile
« on: Jan 12, 2015 at 01:52 PM »
anyone tried Daphile? I have 1 netbook lying around and decided to try daphile on it during the weekend, surprisingly it sound good using my USB dac, It can also play spotify but with premium subscription only. the good thing is that I can control it with any web enable device that is connected in my home network, and can also be controlled by any squeezebox client. and it can use multiple output device and can play simultaneously, great for multi zone.

you can create a live-usb if you just wanna try it and don't want to install on the machine.

Sorry for bringing-up this lone post re-Daphile which I just learned recently. Been using it for a week now I've created a live-usb and plugged it in my Vortexbox Music Server running on Linux Fedora 20 OS. Since I'm using LMS for over 2 years now I am quite familiar on how to deal with it. Truly I am amazed with Daphile compared with Fedora 20 which until now I've been struggling to learn without any background on Linux. Daphile is more friendly user and not so difficult to understand. What I like in Daphile is the ability to plug a usb stick or an external HDD with music files that is easily added on its library contrary to Vortexbox which you need to use a command line on linux just to mount the external HDD to be recognize as an extension of its library. Right now I'm enjoying it and added Spotify as well.

Korek po kayo mga sir.. madali at simple lang sya.

downloaded an iso at using pendrive iso usb tool nagawa nito maging bootable yung 8gb ko na Flashdrive.

smooth na smooth po ang installation sya sa sony ko na 11" amd e2 laptop.

sa installation once na tama yung wireless setup natin. at makakuha sya ng local ip.

pwede na agad i access sa ibang device. working both sa pc firefox at android firefox

My initial test ay naglagay ako ng audio files sa Music folder sa lood ng mismo bootable usb.

Nag out naman sa speaker yung sound pero dapat ma i check natin sa audio settings yung speaker kasi hindi sya naka check by default.

Sa pandinig ko mas maganda sya tumunog compared sa ACryan Media player ko na both connected sa superpro na usb dac. (na detect nya nga po pala yung dac automatic ).

na enable ko din yung screen display since by default blank screen (headless mode)lang sya,

as beginners maganda mga screen gui muna para mas ma explore mo yung mga options.

worth exploring nga po talaga itong daphile..hindi ako nahirapan, 1st attempt pa lang  working na sa hardware ko.

btw, you can still control it via mobile devices even wala kang router/access point. if no router or access point is detected it can make your laptop's wifi adapter as an access point para ka makaconnect doon and control audio playback.

tama po. nice features din po yan.

ang sinisilip ko lately is yung mga plugin nya. im looking for capability to stream audio from my cellphone and yung ma view nga yung mga files ko sa cellphone.

nga po pala, ano po gamitt nyo na free android controller. sa ngayon kasi ang ginagamit ko ay Squeezer.
