Reply To: [SOLVED] Status: Squeezelite not running

I got it working! Took so long. All I did what this command:

apt install squeezelite

Then could list the sound card it sees with this:

[email protected]:~# /usr/bin/squeezelite -l
Output devices:
  null                           - Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture)
  sysdefault:CARD=Pcm5102a       - Pcm5102a,  - Default Audio Device
  dmix:CARD=Pcm5102a,DEV=0       - Pcm5102a,  - Direct sample mixing device
  dsnoop:CARD=Pcm5102a,DEV=0     - Pcm5102a,  - Direct sample snooping device
  hw:CARD=Pcm5102a,DEV=0         - Pcm5102a,  - Direct hardware device without any conversions
  plughw:CARD=Pcm5102a,DEV=0     - Pcm5102a,  - Hardware device with all software conversions
  sysdefault:CARD=sndhdmi        - sndhdmi,  - Default Audio Device
  dmix:CARD=sndhdmi,DEV=0        - sndhdmi,  - Direct sample mixing device
  dsnoop:CARD=sndhdmi,DEV=0      - sndhdmi,  - Direct sample snooping device
  hw:CARD=sndhdmi,DEV=0          - sndhdmi,  - Direct hardware device without any conversions
  plughw:CARD=sndhdmi,DEV=0      - sndhdmi,  - Hardware device with all software conversions

Then did:

chmod +X /etc/init.d/squeezelite

Then started it with:

/etc/init.d/squeezelite start

Not sure if I need to do all that. But went to it’s IP and it shows this:

Status: Squeezelite is running with processID 10006

Playing some songs on it now it works good. Playing though that small sound card too.

I thought Max2play all ready installed the Squeezelite but I guess me installing it with the apt install squeezelite config it for the hat card.

Can even do the Volume up and down but I could do that on the command line with a + or – on the keyboard too.

Seems like it’s working real good. No one could help so I guess if any one else wants to do this can now.
