Even with a slow disk (4200rpm) and a large music library, performance seems not to be a big issue. [ilg: I use the slug to store almost 6000 songs; mt-daapd starts in 3-4 minutes and, when queried by iTunes, returns the full library list in about 15 seconds].

December 05, 2005, at 03:05 AM by Liviu Ionescu -- music server general remarks
Changed lines 1-4 from:

The Slug can be configured as an iTunes server, using the mt-daapd package. Since the iTunes protocol does not allow remote updates, export the mp3 directory from the slug and mount it on the PC/Mac; here files/directories can be manually stored or, even better, a more convenient tool can be used (the easiest to use being probably iTunes).

Even with a slow disk (4200rpm) and a large music library, performance seems not to be an issue. [ilg: I use the slug to store almost 6000 songs; mt-daapd starts in 2-3 minutes and responds to iTunes in several seconds].

to:

Generally speaking, a music server should:

  • stream music to a client able to play it
  • allow library maintenance:
    • add/remove songs
    • edit ID3? tags

The current iTunes version (v6.0.1) can be configured both as a server and a client in order to play remote tunes.

Unfortunately remote maintenance of the library is not possible via the current iTunes protocol (but workarounds are available).

The Slug can be configured as an iTunes server, using the mt-daapd package.

For library maintenance, export the mp3 directory from the slug and mount it on the PC/Mac; at the lower limit you can manually store here files/directories or, even better, you can configure iTunes on a client machine to use that directory as a music store and have acces to all iTunes nice features to organize your music library.

Even with a slow disk (4200rpm) and a large music library, performance seems not to be a big issue. [ilg: I use the slug to store almost 6000 songs; mt-daapd starts in 3-4 minutes and, when queried by iTunes, returns the full library list in about 15 seconds].

Changed lines 1-5 from:
