Jukebox stream shuts off
« on: 04-11-2012 18:32 »
Hi Michael,

I have been enjoying Jukebox immensely, than you very much for developing it.

It has been performing great for me except for one thing. The stream play flawlessly in all modes when Jukebox is off. As soon as I turn Jukebox on the stream stops after exactly two songs. The song title and performer are correct for the first song but does not change when the second song starts to play. I also notice the player popup box says "M3U file (166 bytes)" when Jukebox is on. This does not show when Jukebox is turned off and the player popup box opens.

What am I going wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Steve,

Thanks for posting and welcome to the AmpJuke forum/community.

To be honest, I don't have a specific solution to your jukebox-mode problem, - just hints & places to look for starters:
- Avoid using flash (
- Turn "Now playing" completely off, if it's turned on (
- Use VLC ( at both ends (the device/computer sending/trasmitting/broadcasting the music stream and also the devices/computers being used to hook up and listen to the music stream).
- Avoid transcoding/downsampling ( This should also be avoided within VLC, if you're using that  ;)

...these are the "best" solutions/places to look I can come up with right now.

I'll be happy to try and sort out your problem but might need a bit more info. from you, f.ex. in relation to players being used, hardware etc., if none of the above helps.

Just to make things more complicated: I'm using AmpJuke heavily in jukebox-mode these days. Both at home and "remote" when working.
It's almost like having a personal, free internet radio station with the ability to listen and request music 24x7 - some of my friends also likes this opportunity  :)

Please post an update if anything is unclear (well...feel free to do so in any case).


P.S.: Thanks for the nice words about AmpJuke - great you like it!!
