I will let you know if I can do something great!


By: flysurfer Fri, 22 Jan 2016 10:22:33 +0000 Hi Jimmy,
streaming synchronized audio to other network players should be possible using the Waveinput Plugin ( for the squeezebox server. With this, you may use a line-in-recording on the device where your squeezebox server is running (this might also be a Raspberry with Max2Play) and stream this input to other players (e.g. Squeezelite on Max2Play or other Squeezeboxes).
I tried this some time ago and it was working with some delay. Currently there is no easy install button in Max2Play to get this up and running – but you may follow the information on the wiki-link and give it a try. The key is to choose the right input device in the configuration of the waveinput plugin in your squeezebox server.

If you get it to work, please share your experience.

All the Best,

I am also interresting in hearing the sound of Kodi into the other devices running M2P. Not specifically the surround, but just the sound thru the network to my multiroom system.
I have some Raspberry pi 2 with Amp+.

I have a second question. Is there a way to stream any sound from a device (mp3 player, turn table, …analog source) using a raspberry via a sound card with a line-in and connected to the M2P devices thru the network. For exemple, having music from a CD player, as a server, to the M2P multi-room system.

Thanks for the possible solutions…

Best regards,

thanks for your comment. You may run Kodi and Squeezelite at the same time, when you choose different output devices for the audio on each player and activate the “use USB-Soundcard” in the advanced squeezelite settings. With this setting kodi will not shutdown squeezelite and shairport once it starts. If you have configured a DAC or a USB-Soundcard as output device for squeezelite and use HDMI with Kodi (output sound on HDMI), both players can run at the same time.

Some background info: as Kodi captures the sounddevice it is not possible to run different players with the same audiodevice at the same time. The default solution that enables/disables squeezelite and shairport depending on the status of kodi is a workaround that works for most people, as it is quite easy to start/stop kodi with the web interface.

Streaming the Kodi Audio-Output to the network to get surround sound won’t work as the stream of 5.1 or dolby digital/dts is encoded and needs to be decoded by your receiver. You must use HDMI or an other digital output (USB-Soundcard / HifiBerry Digi) to get surround sound.

By: Klaas Mon, 18 Jan 2016 03:09:56 +0000 Hello Stefan & Thomas,
Your advertising is somewhat misleading: it would really be nice if you could provide a version where kodi could indeed coexist with squeeze player /airport and gmrenderer. In the current version of m2p you can only run one or the other. That in my opinion is not coexistence but are rather alternative options. Furthermore would it be nice to have kodi sound output via HDMI AND DAC / usb sound card, etc. simultaneously. As a next addition would it great to be able to stream Kodi sound to other devices via network, to allow surround sound when watching a movie for example.

Best regards, Klaas

We have not yet heard of such problems with our images. Could you tell us which Raspberry Pi you are using and what output you get before the system hangs?

By: Mark Hula Mon, 21 Dec 2015 18:03:22 +0000 Hey!

I can’t even get the thing to boot :-(
I download the img file then burn to SD – no problem. When the pi boots with the SD card in it kernel panic’s and hangs. No idea what could be wrong. trying the hifiberry img. Desperate for any help!


By: Heiner Wed, 09 Sep 2015 15:05:58 +0000 Hi suresh,
We are happy that Max2Play works great with your setup. Streams can easily be added in the Squeezebox Server’s Interface under Favorites -> Add New Favorite.

By: suresh Wed, 02 Sep 2015 18:03:38 +0000 You’ll did a great job on the Max2Play. Works like a charm. There is a couple of streams that I want to play thru Max2Play. They currently are playable on streema thru a pc. I can send you the streams to see if you could help me play it on Max2Play. Please send me an email and I will send the stream locations. In general Great job guys.

By: Hans Zorn Mon, 31 Aug 2015 10:19:02 +0000 Hi, I am trying to replace my current Daphile setup (with integrated Logitech Media Server) by a Squeezeplug/ Max2Play on a Raspberry Pi 2.
I have 2 audio players (a Squeezebox Classic and a Raspberry Pi) in use that I normally use synced. With Daphile on a very low-end Via powered machine this works OK. But with Max2Play I get sound dropouts as soon as I turn syncing on. With a single player it works flawless. I have the latest version of M2P installed. Any ideas?
