Can't connect to Winamp httpQ plugin on (remote computer)

Post by John » Fri Apr 24, 2009 5:50 am

I'm on the client accessing NetJukeBox. Lets say I'm just logged in as a normal user with no Playlist access. I do the following:

I click on:

Media --> General --> Pick an Artist --> Pick an Album --> Add Track

When I do that, I get the error: "Can't connect to Winamp httpQ plugin on:" & the ip address.

Now I understand the Winamp plugin is for local users. But what about clients? Or do I need to set something up?

Please advise.

The Winamp httpQ Playlist, Play, Add, etc is only intend to run on a LAN network.
If you want to run Winamp on another computer you need to create a network share on the computer where netjukebox is running on.
Here you can find some screenshots: viewtopic.php?p=1490#p1490
(Don’t read the rest of this topic, because they discus another problem)
For listening to music outside your LAN you can use the stream feature of netjukebox.

I understand I can use the stream feature outside of my LAN, but how is music queued up to make a playlist outside the LAN? I can stream the album I see, but what if I want to add tracks from various artists? Is that possible?

With streaming it is not possible to queue.
However you can create a playlist within the LAN and save it to as favorites.
Later you can stream the favorites outside the LAN.
