Thread: FTP + Local network (Searching for devces) question

    Question FTP + Local network (Searching for devces) question

    I was trying to connect to a Synology NAS to stream music from it.

    FTP
    I've successfully connected via FTP but the music doesn't play when I select the file.
    Does the file need to be download then played? I was thinking the app would download it in the background, play it and then dispose of it when closed.

    Local Network
    But my main question is what and how do I set up the local network to stream music from a folder on my NAS.

    There's a bug with filenames with [ and ] over FTP.

    My folder names are like so:
    Lights Out [RS197] 2013-11-18

    But when I rename them to:
    Lights Out RS197 2013-11-18

    They play.

    Re: Bug found

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Unfortunately I cannot recreate the problem, folder names with [] characters appear to be processed fine. Are you using your Synology NAS server's built-in FTP functionality? What exact Synology model are you using?

    It's the 1517+ model and I'm using ftp enabled via the NAS with no encryption.

    Have you tried the same folder name with whitespaces?

    Re: Bug found

    Here's my ftp settings with user and password changed.

    Using these settings I can navigate into the album folder okay and see the file but it fails to play the file.

    Media Server Settings:
    ftp://user:password@Price_NASeem/NAS...usic/_LOSSLESS

    File Path to file:
    Price_NASeem/NAS/Music/_LOSSLESS/Artist/Album [Cat *] YYYY-MM-DD/01. Flac 01.flac

    Updated with the latest Andriod version 06-06-18 and it immediately crashes when selecting the folder:

    Boy Boy Boy (2015-05-24) [FLAC, 16-44.1, WEB] {BLKBTR73}/

    With the a full path of:
    ftp://NAS Storage/Music/_LOSSLESS/Andhim/Boy Boy Boy (2015-05-24) [FLAC, 16-44.1, WEB] {BLKBTR73}/

    The phone is a VFD700 if that matters.

    Problem still persists with the latest update a couple of days ago.

    It may be the { and } causing this.

    Lightbulb Screen capture of bug

    Found out exactly the characters which are causing the issue.

    Foobar2k no longer crashes with the latest update. So thanks for that.

    Problem still remains with the [ and ] chars.

    See screen cap.
