    Anyone have this working? I can see the mp3 files from Home Assistant/TTS playing in my LMS browser but I can’t hear the files. Volume is set at max. I tried playing the files in my chrome browser and they work perfectly but no sound when I send the files straight from HASS. Thanks

    Hi Cyn,

    Sorry about the late reply.

    Does a random radio stream or your music play okay? If not, please check your output device selection in the advanced options of Squeezelite.

    Yes, everything plays great from MyMusic and Tidal. From all appearances you would think GoogleTTS is also working…LMS shows the text that I sent over from the raspberry Pi & I see the countdown timer working but I just don’t hear anything. I even copied the file from the pi and put it in MyMusic. I use a USB DAC (Schiit BiFrost) and I am beginning to think there’s a problem decoding the file?

    Any thing you can suggest would be apprciated.
    Thanks

    Finally making progress! I changed audio output from Front, CARD=Device, DEV=0 to just default & it now works. It keeps playing in an unending loop but at least for now I hear the googleTTS message. I also had success on sysdefault, hw & plughw. Is there a guide explaining these options and which one I am suppose to be using? Not clear how to set this up for best stereo performance.
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Cyn,

    Our default setting is sydefault which is also what we would recommend for stereo performance.

    Have the same problem, I think. I have HiFiBerry + on RPi2 Max2Play and – SqueezePlay player on Win10 which plays the TTS but none of the Squeezelite on Max2play installs are playing the TTS from the URL sent. I downloaded the file in LMS music folder and it plays fine on squeezelite/max2play- so is NOT as I saw on some forums a too short mp3 file or sampling rate not supported. Some are saying something about https – cannot find it right now – Any suggestions? – I did look on a lot of posts but so far no luck.

    Hi All, hoping someone can help here.

    Did anyone ever get this working?

    I too think i have the same issue, but am using Openhab with Google TTS.

    Max2Play 1:
    PiZero with JustBoom DAC

    `#### SQUEEZELITE VERSION ####
    Squeezelite Max2Play v1.0.2 based on v1.8.4-726, Copyright 2012-2015 Adrian Smith, 2015-2016 Ralph Irving.

    Max2Play 2:
    Pi3B with HiFi Berry DAC

    LMS
    Logitech Media Server Version: 7.7.6 – 1521467459 @ Thu Mar 29 16:46:01 WEDT 2018
    Hostname: DESKTOP-QOPRQGN
    Server IP Address: 192.###.###.###
    Server HTTP Port Number: 9000
    Operating system: Windows 10 – EN – cp1252

    Database Version: DBD::SQLite 1.34_01 (sqlite 3.7.7.1)
    Total Players Recognized: 5

    Both devices work perfectly fine. It’s only when playing the googletts files from within OpenHab. Like Above, LMS displays the track as playing but no audio. When i copy the cached googleTTS file directly from „\openhab2-userdata\cache\org.openhab.voice.googletts“ onto the LMS Server it plays correctly „The Garage Door is open“.

    Therefore, as above, i think it might be something to do with the connection. (HTTPS). There have been a few threads about updating the version of Squeezelite, but the version on Max2Play is custom built, so no update available.
