Thank you, although the idea behind my query was precisely to decide whether to purchase the Tonido or not :) .

Anyone else (already sporting a Tonido2) managed to install and run Subsonic successfully?

Yes, it does work. Though it may run slowly the first time as it sets itself up.

A couple of tips:
1. The Debian install package works.

2. Sourceforge virtualizes the download links and inserts a page of ads, making wget unusable to get the .deb package. You will have to download the file in a browser, then copy in to the plug.

3. The first time you run the server, you may have to configure subsonic to respond to the plug's IP address:
# subsonic --host=XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX (where this is your plug's IP address)

After the first run and a plug power cycle, it seems to respond properly to the IP address.

Good luck!

Those instructions work beautifully. Except I also installed lame and ffmpeg

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install lame ffmpeg


The server works perfectly, I can access via web and through the Subsonic android app. It downloads and plays music fine :) The only issues I've had are with my university's wifi. I turned wifi off and streaming is perfect over my data service. I was unsure whether the Tonido would be able to handle a java app so well, but so far its great.

Edit: There is one issue. I have setup No-IP for my network and the Tonido is running behind a router. If I access the subsonic server from an external network (like my phone's data) it works fine, but it does not work from my internal wifi. I think this is a router issue. A hack is just to add a new server with the local IP and use it at home instead of the external hostname.
