    I am building a Raspberry Pi based Internet Radio/CD Player. The CD is connected via USB o the Pi. I run Jivelite as fronend.
    My question is:
    Is there a way to autorun audio CDs when inserted into the drive? Or at least to play them in SOME way?

    Hints and suggestions welcome! 😉

    I can’t confirm it will play CD’s from an USB CD-Player attached to the RPi, but it does play CD’s from the Computer on which LMS is installed.

    Finally, I came back to this topic and it seems that I have found a reasonable approach:
    Slimdevices Forum

    I have not posted the solution here, as the current max2play images do not (yet) support the „-C 3“ option of squeezelite but it won’t work without.

    Hi fvzeppelin,

    Thank you for sharing your experience with Max2Play. We will consider to support the CDs Players in Max2Play to use it along with Jivelite and LMS.

    Hi Mohammad,

    thank you for taking notice 🙂
    I have updated my post in the Slimdevices Forum. Now, it contains an example addon for Jivelite and an optional patch for VLC which enables to retrieve more metadata. Also, I have found a way to start VLC as a cron job using the screen command.
    Maybe, this helps for your consideration 😉

    Btw: Did you subsribe to my thread on the Slimdevices Forum? I will probably update it from time to time.

    Best regards,
