mt-daapd is a multi-threaded DAAP server for Linux and other POSIX type systems. It allows a Linux box (like the WDTV gen1) to share audio files with iTunes users.



1. Before you start

Make sure that :

  • you have a WDTV gen1 that has WDLXTV installed
  • your WDTV gen1 is connected to your network (and has been assigned an IP address)
  • you (kinda) know what telnet/ssh is and how to use it

2. Downloading optware

In order to get the Mt-daapd server running on your wdtv, you first need to have optware installed. So :

  • first download the app.bin from b-rad: [1]
  • extract the opt.bin from the zip file and place it in the root of your boot device
  • cold boot the wdtv (so completely disconnect from power and reconnect) with boot device (that contains opt.bin) connected
