View Full Version : [Android 7.0/iOS 9] "Playback error: Object not found" on FTP Media Server

October 26th, 2017, 09:38 AM
If I try to play a MP3 file on an FTP Media Server, foobar2000 throws an 'Playback error: Object not found On: "ftp://SERVERNAME/FOLDER/test01.mp3"' error. I can browse the FTP Media Server and cover images are displayed. I can even download those cover images (cover.jpg), but if I try to download a MP3 file I get an 'test01.mp3 Object not found' error. This behavior is identical with foobar 1.0.94 on Android and iOS.

I captured the FTP connection with tcpdump and it seems foobar2000 never even tries to download any MP3 files. The FTP server is ProFTPD 1.3.5b on Debian Linux.

Has someone gotten music playback from an FTP Media Server working and can share some insight?
