Yardbirds Player

       iOS Universal

Yardbirds Player plays internet radio streams (*1) and also streams music files (*2) including hi-res (*3) in the cloud(WebDAV/Box/GDrive(*4)).
You can utilize multiple accounts of both Box and GDrive!
It provides a universal Playlist feature (Shortcut-List) (*5). Each Shortcut-List handles music files that span multiple WebDAV servers.

There's almost no limits with its number of servers, whole capacity of storage, and the number of tracks. It differs from major music streaming services. You can obtain much better cloud music streaming environment by using of home-server or NAS (*6).

It provides a better look-and-feel, mimicking audio devices. It has 100 radio stations preset as samples. It supports various playlist formats. You can easily add more preset radio stations with built-in tuner/iTunes file sharing/Open In.... Basically, it preserves preemptive playback mode if the radio-station/track list is displayed. The view will not be changed arbitrarily during playback sequence.

*1) Supports MP3/AAC/AAC+ and optionally supports ALAC/AIFF/WAV.
*2) Supports MP3/AAC/AAC+/ALAC/AIFF/(part of)WAV. There's no plan to support WMA.
*3) iPhone5 streams 192KHz/24bit file. Supported files are WAV/ALAC/AIFF.
*4) Unfortunately, it requires DAV-pocket Lab's WebDAV gateway service. Use it at your own risk. They are developing their product on the infrastructure of GDrive's company and they are fairly trusty but they are third party.
*5) In accordance with your editing environment (Mac/PC/iOS), use an appropriate WebDAV browser to edit contents of WebDAV servers.
*6) Artwork/lyrics function may not work with the NAS that is using a minor WebDAV server. Because there's a room to adapt to your environment, let me know the WebDAV server software of your environment.

What's new

*Hierarchical folder playback
For now, you don't have to create a ShortcutList(aka PlayList) for listening to all tunes beneath current folder.

*Hierarchical folder adding
All tunes beneath folders can be added to ShortcutList queue. This traversal allows you to create a ShortcutList much easier than before.

Both functions require iOS7.0 or later.

*lighttpd support
Adaptation to a Wi-Fi storage adapter that is using lighttpd as its WebDAV server including reconfiguration of buffer size.
This adaptation adds the capability of playing back hi-res tracks of even less powerful WebDAV servers. It unexceptionally improves the stability of hi-res playback.
