    Hi All

    I’m having problems getting Squeezelite to work. When I start Squeezelite I get „Trying to launch … NOT successful Click here to show detailed information“

    And this is what it says:

    Trying to launch … NOT successful Click here to show detailed information
    Cannot connect to server socket err = No such file or directory
    Cannot connect to server request channel
    jack server is not running or cannot be started
    JackShmReadWritePtr::~JackShmReadWritePtr – Init not done for -1, skipping unlock
    JackShmReadWritePtr::~JackShmReadWritePtr – Init not done for -1, skipping unlock

    [18:45:44.015339] output_init_common:382 unable to open output device

    And on the dbug at the bottom of the page I get this:

    I did read it could be a hardware output issue but I don’t have any other hardware attached to it as I’m going to run it as a player via bluetooth within a group of players. I’d really appreciate any suggestions. Also this is the second image I have burned onto my SD card, plus its also happening with another M2P I have. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Alex,

    In the advanced options of Squeezelite you can choose your sound card. Your sound card is currently set to „Jack“. Please select „sysdefault“ there. Then Squeezelite should be able to start and you should be able to play music over the headphone or HDMI output of the Pi.
