Forked-Daapd (R4x86)

iTunes-logoForked-Daapd is a Linux/FreeBSD DAAP (iTunes) and RSP (Roku) media server.

It has support for AirPlay devices/speakers, Apple Remote (and compatibles), internet radio, Spotify and LastFM. It does not support AirPlay video.

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.

Please note:

  • On large music libraries with a lot of playlists the initial scan for media files can take several hours. During that period the list shown on your iTunes devices may be incomplete or you may experience problems retrieving the list.
  • Video streaming is limited to the mp4 format supported by iTunes devices. There is no transcoding done by forked-daapd. To convert your videos to a supported mp4 format the use of Handbrake is recommended.
