config for aluratek wifi radio

Postby oggie » Fri Apr 30, 2010 3:47 am

So I purchased an aluratek wifi radio, and it does see ps3mediaserver and can play some mp3 files. But a lot fo the times it hangs on certain files for no reason that I can tell.

How do I go about creating a conf file for this device? I assume that it's determined by the user agent, but how do I find the user agent of the radio? Can I use wireshark to get those details?

Does anyone have an example conf file for an audio (mp3, wma) device?

I've tried other media servers, and none work as well as pms with this device. But there's still issues that I would think could be resolved.
It's able to browse some directories and play music, and for whatever reason some files causes it to hang. If I put the same file on a usb stick and play it on the radio, it works. The same song will play fine on the ps3 as well as on totem in ubuntu. So ps3mediaserver seems to be serving it up correctly to those devices.

Here's what I have in the debug. It doesn't appear to even send a useragent:
Code: Select all

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I would put in a conf file? I don't even think there's a way to do any user-agent stuff since this device doesn't seem to send any useful info.

Good question, there's a parameter in the conf file called UserAgentAdditionalHeaderSearch where you can enter any value specific to an HTTP message from your renderer, but you need at least something relevant :p

Thanks for the reply. I thought the same thing that I'd need something that would uniquely identify the radio but didn't see anything there.

Fortunately I created a support ticket and they responded by sending me a new firmware for the device and it now works great with ps3mediaserver! I don't need a custom conf file anymore.
