Jivelite is a visualization software for controlling the squeezebox playback. With this extension an easy to use and customizable user interface can be displayed via HDMI connection to any screen. With this interface the squeezebox activity can be controlled. As soon as the extension has been integrated and installed, it can be turned on and off through the web interface. The visualization offers all options to control playback und the music choice.
Jivelite with Touchscreen
With our two touchscreen systems for Raspberry Pi, the 2,8 inch and the 7 inch displays, Jivelite works perfectly as the visual component to create a user experience similar to the Squeezebox Touch. Its simple, clear interface makes Jivelite the ideal software for touch control. We have fitting skins for both displays that automatically adjusts Jivelite’s interface to the respective touchscreen’s dimensions.
To appropriate the Squeezebox Touch experience as close as possible, we also added a screensaver option for the 7 inch screen that makes it display the time and date, either analog or digital, when the touch interface is not used. This way you can run Jivelite continuously and also have an additional clock in the house. If you want to change the playback, you just need to touch the screen once to revert it back to the Jivelite menu.
Visualizations in Jivelite
The Jivelite Visualizations like the Spectrum Analyzer and the VU Meter are available in Max2Play, as soon as the parameter -v is set in the advanced options of the Squeetelite Player in the Audioplayer menu. The visualizations change after tapping on the area above the playback controls.
