Its actualy preinstalled inside every firmware until version 1.0.4 but poorly configured. Installing this package will replace the startup script and on next reboot start this latest SVN version of Firefly. So please restart process after install since it will show it as already running.
It can stream mp3 files and even ogg or flac nativly with default Installer settings.
First access link opens administration page. Login to it with default "sysadmin" password that you can change from this admin page. You can also see the size of the database and force update it (otherwise he checks for change every 300 seconds). To add more songs just copy them (via FTP or SMB share; subforlders also possible) to:
I added a client called Fireplay inside the package. Its a Flash based client that fetches all the songs in a nice GUI and give you ability to play them in any browser with flash support. Downside is that it can work a bit slow with big database (10.000 songs for example ). You can access it from within installer under second access link. Use your admin password for access.
There is another web based client called Siren:
Open port 3689 and you router and connect to your Firefly server. It will automaticly sync the database and you can play your songs from any browser.
Take note! Flash player have limitation to only play mp3 files. So no ogg or flac playback is possible!
Last client that I found usefull was Java based. Should run also on linux with Java. I tested it on windows. You can download it here:
Connect to your Firefly library and start playing songs (ogg and flac too!!!). It has also a multilanguage interface.
You can even make M3U playlist files and use them in WMP or VLC. Download it from here:

and set it up like so:
But for me it was a bit buggy. Crashing server on playback. Its not made for playback like that since DAAP is apple based protocol if I understand correctly.
