    I’ve installed max2play on a Raspberry pi3 with a 3.5inch waveshare clone LCD. It works but I’m confused how to get a music player installed.

    I want my wife to be able to go to the pi screen, press a playlist she has made which is stored on the NAS, and have it play. She uses musicbee so I think the LMS/Squeeze thing is another step I don’t want/need. Musicbee does everything she needs and is super flexible, so I should be able to get the pi/linux to talk to it.

    Have /mnt/share setup as the location of the music on my NAS, through m2p web interface. That works.
    I installed Jivelite with the small lcd skin, works fine.
    It says „Choose Player“ when I try to go to my music.
    No players are present.

    gmediarender won’t install, is it what I’m after? Is that a simple player that will live inside jivelite? Or should I try to get ampache or something in there? Recommendations?

    Thank you for any advice!

    Hi tomalt,

    Jivelite is exclusive to the Squeezebox system and the Squeezelite player. You need a Squeezebox Server and Squeezelite both running in order to use Jivelite. Both do not need a lot of processing power and you only need to install the server with one click while Squeezelite comes preinstalled.
