How to Enable XSPF Player
Ampache comes with a way to play media through the browser via an embedded Flash based player. The file needed for this feature has been removed from the Ubuntu package (probably for licensing reasons).
Tested Ubuntu 10.10 with Ampache 3.5.4 To use the Flash player with Ubuntu packaged Ampache: Visit Ampache website http://ampache.org/ and download Ampache 3.5.4.
Uncompress. From uncompressed directory, move: ampache-3.5.4/modules/flash/xspf_jukebox.swf
to your system: /usr/share/ampache/www/modules/flash
Player should now work.
With 11.04 Natty (ampache-3.5.4-9ubuntu3) a simple bash script has been added to do all this for you. Simply run
- bash /usr/share/ampache/www/bin/grab_xspf.sh
