Connectivity

Music is streamed over WLAN, mobile networks or Bluetooth.

Advanced Configuration

Advanced settings can be configured in musicpimp.conf in your installation directory. The path is typically C:\Program Files (x86)\MusicPimp\musicpimp.conf. Reasonable defaults are provided.

HTTPS

To enable HTTPS, specify the following parameters in musicpimp.conf:

KeyValue
https.portThe HTTPS port to use
https.keyStoreThe path to the keystore
https.keyStorePasswordThe keystore password
https.keyStoreTypeOptionally, the keystore type. Defaults to JKS.

A keystore with a self-signed certificate is included in the MusicPimp software distributions in the folder config/security/test-cert.jks under the installation directory. The keystore passphrase is musicpimp.

Note In order to successfully connect to the MusicPimp (or Subsonic) server over HTTPS using Windows Phone, your server certificate must be trusted by your phone. This means self-signed certificates are unlikely to work.

Logging

MusicPimp writes a log to the directory given by the log.dir system property. At midnight, the log from the previous day is archived to a separate file and a new file is written for the following day. The active log file is also archived if it reaches 100 MB in size (during the same day.) Logs older than 30 days are finally deleted.

Uninstallation

Uninstall MusicPimp using the Add/Remove Programs section in the Control Panel.
