Rhythmbox no longer automatically lists DAAP shares
Last modified: 2008-05-19 16:28:33 EDT
Description of problem:
I use rhythmbox as my audio player and mt-daapd as my media server. Rhythmbox used to list my mt-
daapd DAAP share automatically because mt-daapd publishes its share using Avahi. Rhythmbox now
does not list the share until I manually select Music -> Connect to DAAP Share.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and configure mt-daapd
2. Start rhythmbox
Rhythmbox does not list mt-daapd's DAAP share.
Rhythmbox should list mt-daapd's DAAP share without the user manually connecting to it. This is how
things worked out of the box when using F-8.
iTunes detects my mt-daapd DAAP share automatically as I would expect.
I tried to downgrade to a previous version of rhythmbox from F-8, but that did not fix the problem.
Could you please try disabling the firewalls on both machines, and restarting
Avahi (and Rhythmbox/mt-daapd as well).
Yes, you got it.
Sorry, I had turned off the firewall on the mt-daapd server, but not my Rhythmbox client. I guess I didn't
put much thought into how mDNS/DNS-SD works.
For the record, adding the following line to my client's /etc/sysconfig/iptables allows avahi through the
-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m udp -p udp --dport 5353 -j ACCEPT
