Holiday time

Sorry guys for not responding to your comments. I forgot to let you know that I am currently on vacation. I will be back on 06/15.
Greetings from hot Philadelphia, Eric.

There it is: The new package.

After testing, scripting, reinstalling, testing again dozens of times.

At first the little things:

  • New icons for DSM 4.2
  • Minisub is now called Jamstash, it got a new icon as well
  • Jamstash now opens in an DSM internal window (you can still access it by adding /mini to your Subsonic url

The technical changes:

After hours and countless fails I’ve given up my “build your own ffmpeg” project. Which means this package comes without any transcoding features.

However there is a workaround thanks to Timo from timokisig.de.

Patters, the developer of the Java and Serviio packages always brings his Serviio packages with his own Synology ffmeg binaries, so I am now using his compilations. If you have Serviio installed already you can just update Subsonic and it will use Serviios binaries automatically. For those who haven’t but want to use transcoding:

Install Serviio first (it doesn’t have to be running).

Afterwards access your DS via SSH and type:

ln -s /var/packages/Serviio/target/bin/ffmpeg /var/packages/Subsonic/transcode/ffmpeg

To make it work smoothly you have to change the Subsonic transcoding line.

In Subsonic go to Settings->transcoding and look for the downsampling command. change it to:

ffmpeg -i %s -ab %bk -v 0 -vn -f mp3 -

 

Unfortunately there are still some bugs:

  • Hibernating still doesn’t work (it only works with Madsonic but I don’t have a clue why)
  • Subsonic may crash during the update process. I recommend to stop Subsonic before updating and wait at least a minute to start the update. Never stop Subsonic while it is scanning its library!

I really hope this one works better than the last packages.

Last but not least I’ve updated the Serviio Console package.

I’ve changed the icons a bit and made it working in an iframe again.

It is available at the community package hub repo.

Have fun with it, Eric.

Another week another package…

I have added to option to display owncloud inside an iframe again. You can select the link Type during install.

extern opens a new browser Tab

embedded opens ownCloud in an iframe window inside DSM

net2ftp 1.00 – 002 Synology package

Mittwoch, 15. Mai 2013, 14:43 Uhr, 13 Comments, Allgemein, Misc, by .

After trying and filing one week to change the application.cfg into a “config” file with the same behavior I stayed with the application.cfg.
It is a DSM link type developed for DSM 2 (“config” is for DSM 3 and later) but still works with DSM 4.
I wasn’t able to create an embedded link to the web directory correctly using the config file,

What does this nerd-talk mean to me?
Nothing: net2ftp is up to date and waorks with DSM 4.2 like before ;)

I hope you like the new look, I made some fitting icons.
Have fun with it it is now available at the cphub repo

Another hobby

Mittwoch, 15. Mai 2013, 14:34 Uhr, 4 Comments, Misc, by .

Hey guys,

I want to share another hobby with you, which is DJing. I’ve been doing this for almost 10 Years now.

So this is my latest recorded mix which is quite long and contains 25 nice deep and tech-house tracks. I think its a fresh thing that makes you move your bottom ;)
It was live mixed with two CDJ 400 a DJM 400 and Serato Scratch live.

Synology DSM 4.3 meeting Düsseldorf

Samstag, 11. Mai 2013, 0:35 Uhr, No Comments, Allgemein, Misc, by .

First of all Thanks for you responses to my Subsonic 4.8 package, I will try to work on it tomorrow.

 

I just read there is a presentation of the new DSM 4.3 in my hometown, Düsseldorf.

If you want to attend, you can register here.

 

Falls noch wer von euch aus der Rhein-Ruhr Gegend kommt und an nem Dienstagnachmittag Zeit hat (OK es sind wahrscheinlich nicht viele), würde ich mich freuen ein paar von euch zu sehen. Ich frage im Synology Forum auch mal nach, falls es dazu noch keinen Thread gibt.

 

Schönes Wochenende, have a nice weekend,

Eric

OK I’ve done a lot today but I’m still not finished (for example the new 120×120 icon doesn’t show up in package manager)

My current version is online at my Dropbox folder

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/y9lcl2xsznvve80/31mcnc5gpE

 

a quick changelog:

 

subsonic4.8-032
o fixed some bugs
o added 120×120 package icon
o updated package compatibily to DSM 4.2
o MiniSub is now called Jamstash
o updated Jamstash DSM icon (thaks to KicknGuitar from the Subsonic Forum)
o contains Jamstash to 2.4.1
o contains Subsonic 4.8

So everyone who likes fiddling around with stuff pleas install this version and report any bugs to me especially if you own a x86 or power pc DS.

 

known bugs: DS doesn’t go in sleep mode, transcoding is buggy, 120×120 icon doesn’t work,

 

If you get any error during installation pleas check the /usr/syno/synoman/webman/3rdparty folder it should just contain Symlinks to different packages no actaul folders or files. If there are files or folders delete them, uninstall the package and install it again.

 

Good night and good luck, Eric ;)

 

 

Quick update

It was quite an interesting week. A new version of Subsonic came out as well as the new Developers Guide for DSM 4.2 which shows a lot of changes in creating and integrating new packages.

I am currently working on the new Subsonic 4.8 package. I will most likely upload the new version tomorrow.

maz informed me that there is a second version of ownCloud available. It is distributed by the French synocommunity.com and is as unofficial as my package ;) . I don’t know this package yet so I don’t recommend installing both owncloud packages at the same time. Also I can’t guarantee that changing from one to another package will work.

I will stay here at my balcony for another hour, listen to the beautiful new record of Andrew Bayer, enjoy the sun and finish to read the not very warm but quite dry Developers guide.

So all you beta heads, stay tuned tomorrow ;)

Sorry for not being around here the last few weeks.

But: (In Jeremy Clarksons words) Good News! I have a day off tomorrow and will try to answer to all your questions, problems and hints and at least try to work on new fixes.

I hope you aren’t that angry but this blog is just a hobby and a year ago I didn’t thought it could become this big.

I hope all you Synos are running fine out there and you had a great Weekend.

Eric
