Re: Logitech Media Server 7.9.1 + YouTube Plugin working

TBH, I've given up on running LMS on the Joggler; it's just too fiddly to do updates and it kept crashing for me. I only use my Jogglers as players and now run LMS on a Raspberry Pi using Max2Play. It is so easy to update from the Max2Play web interface and I have found it to be more stable (althoug...

Re: Borked Joggler low effort fix please

I have to admit, I've more or less ditched using mp3 files, or any stored digital format for that matter. Streaming or vinyl are my preferred options nowadays. I honestly can't say when I last listened to an mp3 music file.

Re: Borked Joggler low effort fix please

I must say that Squeezeplay OS has never run better since I moved Logitech Media Server to a Raspberry Pi. The easiest, peasiest way to do this is using Max2Play. It allows you to stop, start, restart and update to the latest nightly version from a user-friendly web interface on your computer, witho...

Re: what's the best Operating system and App to play this radio station?

1) If you use Squeezeplay OS, use the search facility on the Home Screen, search for "Radio Goa" 2) A screen will come up asking where you want to search for it; choose "Radio" then all the search results will load 3) When you see the station you want, hold your finger over it (don't just tap it) an...

Re: Back with LMS and still confused!

I now use LMS on a Raspberry Pi using Max2Play. It really is very simple to use and upgrading the LMS server to the latest nightly is a breeze (I do it whenever I get notification of an update). One of the best things is that it downloads the nightly and renames it to a generic name (lms.deb I think...

Re: Usb Soundcard

If it's taking input through USB and putting audio out through phono, doesn't that make it a DAC?

Re: SqueezePlay OS (Version 3) for OpenFrame

Brilliant! Thanks. I'm going to do a fresh install first before the update; clear out a lot of the plugins I don't use.

Re: SqueezePlay OS (Version 3) for OpenFrame

You may be right about the problem, I don't know. I do know that I fixed the problem by resetting the registration and re-registering multiple times, until the apps eventually appeared.

Re: SqueezePlay OS (Version 3) for OpenFrame

Seriously confused now. I've connected another Joggler to my LMS server but hardly any apps show up under My Apps and certainly not the green Spotify icon. I have unticked the Show in my apps option in Triode's plugin. The weird thing is that I can access and use loads of apps for the player (includ...

And yes, even weirder... As Man in a van suggested, I've installed both plugins and now the green Spotify icon works (yes, the green one ) without the transient errors. It even has the playlist and mood suggestions of Spotify on other devices, which I like for music discovery. Some might miss the Tr...

Weirder and weirder! I searched for "beatles" and got the general transient error on 4 occasions and on the fifth, it delivered the expected results. I did the same with "sinatra" and "marvin gaye" (all searches lowercase) and found similar results, i.e. some error results before finally working. Th...

Re: SqueezePlay OS (Version 3) for OpenFrame

I think the method for choosing a random testing track is now broken, leading to the metadata failure and the inability to stream, even though the plugin works (but not as before.) I haven't checked any logs, but the inability to access certain features makes me think that. Other users running the S...

Is anybody experiencing this problem with the Spotify plugin on LMS? http://i63.tinypic.com/11avmza.png Weirdly, Spotify will list all my existing playlists and they work fine, even from a fresh installation with the plugin applied from scratch. Other things work in strange ways; for example, if I s...

I recently installed the Youtube app and entered the necessary API key, which allowed me to access Youtube channels and content lists. Unfortunately though, it wouldn't play any of the content.

Re: Android 4.04 build - now fully working!

The ability to independently (or collectively) alter the volume of synchronised players is the main reason I like the 3rd party apps. I use Squeeze Ctrl on Android and iPeng on the iPad.

Re: Android 4.04 build - now fully working!

That's weird because I use it as a controller on my phone and my Android Joggler and have never had any trouble with it. Maybe I don't give it the same kind of thrashing you do ;) Are you using the new version? It used to be called Squeeze Control but is now a differently listed app called Squeeze C...
