  • Sonos-like Wireless Multiroom Sound System

    Hi Anath47 and teaMJPx,We actually have a preinstalled Google Music plugin integrated in the installation of the LMS. With an active premium account, you can use it log into your GMusic account and take full advantage of your subscription.However, the Bluetooth plugin works great as well. We have now finished implementing it fully into the LMS as a source of playback. Meaning when you start playing something from your smartphone/tablet, the current playback of LMS is automatically stopped to play from Bluetooth. Once Bluetooth playback is done, the LMS picks back up from the normal playlist that was playing before. No need to even access the LMS' webinterface.I wrote a little announcement for this on the Squeezebox Forums, here is the link

  • Sonos-like Wireless Multiroom Sound System

    We actually got curious and tested it out yesterday and today. The two methods of using Bluetooth for pairing and audio input both worked with a simple voice app ("Mic to Speaker"). However the LMS channeling gave it higher latency than the use of the Pulse output via Squeezelite directly.You can check out both options right now in the beta version of our Bluetooth plugin.

  • Sonos-like Wireless Multiroom Sound System

    That would be possible through the Bluetooth plugin as well! The Bluetooth channel would play any output you send over your phone/tablet. So if you have an App open that would replicate your speech into the phone, it could send the audio to stream to all your Squeezelite players easily.Regarding our license, you can purchase different lengths of premium license activity. Between a 1-month license for under 5 bucks and a five year license for just 29,99 €, there are many different options. And most importantly, the changes and plugins you use during your premium license use are not reverted or changed after your license expires. You also get preferred responses in our support forums. Check out the 1-month license first, if you are still on the fence and renew it later.The license is...see more »That would be possible through the Bluetooth plugin as well!

    Hi teaMJPx,Congratulations on an amazing setup! Also, thank you for using our software. We really appreciate users like you getting the most out of the great Squeezebox environment with our images.Speaking of, have you tried out our Bluetooth plugin yet? It lets you couple your Pi with a Bluetooth speaker so that it automatically repairs with the Pi afterwards. In connection with MultiSqueeze (our plugin to run multiple instances of the Squeezelite player on one Pi) you can then use the BT speaker as an additional music player on the same Pi. This way, you can expand your multiroom system even further without having to add more Pi's.However, the Bluetooth plugin also works the other way around.

You can now use it to couple your phone or tablet directly with a player, selecting "Pulse" in the player settings for output, the player will automatically grab the default sound output and play the music from your phone or tablet to the output.But there is also an even greater application of Bluetooth in the plugin. You can now add a "radio station" to your Squeezebox Server that plays music directly from your phone's library via Bluetooth. Check it out if you are interested.

  • Raspberry Pi Multi-Room Audio (Mobile/Tablet/PC Controlled)

    Hey, nice instructable, Piney!We actually liked the Squeezebox system a whole lot, too. That's why we built a one-click installer for the Squeezebox Server to run simultaneously on the Pi, making another computer running the server obsolete! We also have one instance of squeezelite preinstalled and a program called MultiSqueeze to create as many additional players as you want.We would love it if you took a look at our images, they might be right up your alley. The image is free and the server installer and squeezelite as well.

    Hi DadBoiler,We'd recommend the I2S sound cards for RPi by IQaudIO or HiFiBerry. They both have multiple options for DAC and Amp's under 100 bucks. Are also supported natively by most music OS like Volumio, Rune Audio or us (Max2Play).

  • How to access Raspberry Pi through VNC

    Hello raspberrypi33,Nice instructable.We have created an easy way to install and access the Raspberry Pi through VNC. With Max2Play you only need to install VNC over the browser interface and then you can use it. It is giving you various plug ins, like the 'Remote Control' which allows you to setup a SSH-Access directly from this web interface. For this you not need Putty or other terminals.

  • Raspberry Pi Mobile Media Center with Smartphone Control

    We have not tested it yet on the Zero. But Max2Play is fully compatible with the Raspberry Pi Zero, thus it should work fine. However, you are more limited in your choice of sound card, we currently only support the IQaudIO DAC for the Zero.

  • 3 Audio Players in 1 Raspberry Pi With Bluetooth - Easy Multiroom HiFi Setup

    Hi Matt,We only tested and designed the Bluetooth Plugin for use with the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B and WiFi dongles and the Raspberry Pi 3. We recommend the investment in one of these devices since their hardware is much faster and better than the RPi 1's.
