DAAP and Linux

I got mt-daapd running on my Linux desktop where all my music files are. I found a patch to make it work with avahi and instruction and RPMs.

The only problem is that iTunes does not support streaming Ogg files. The QuickTime Components do a good job of local Ogg playing but I guess iTunes does its own thing with streaming. It is supposed to be possible to setup transcoding so the server streams WAV instead.

UPDATE: Only development snapshots of mt-daapd support transcoding. And they support FLAC. But they don’t support Avahi and the patch does apply cleanly.
