    This Max2Play image is not listed as needing a 4GB card, but the image is 3GB, and when I load it onto a 2GB card there is a kernel panic when I boot up my raspberry pi2B. Do I need a 4GB card?

    Hi Martin,
    We recommend a 4 GB or higher microSD card with Class 10 speed or higher. Our Raspberry Pi images, when unpacked, should be around 3 GB in size.

    Thanks for this information, Heiner. What is a bit confusing is that the other images state explicitly that a 4G card is needed (on the download page). But nothing is said for this image, which suggests that it doesn’t need as card as large as 4G.

    Now I’m off to the store to buy a larger card, and we’ll see how that works! ­čÖé

    Thanks for pointing it out, we will look into a less ambiguous depiction. Good luck with your purchase, don’t forget to get a Class 10 speed or higher.

    That’s unfortunate: just yesterday I bought a Class 4 card. Where on the downloads page is it specified that a Class 10 is needed?

    I mentioned it in my previous post, it is not needed, just recommended. Your card should work as well, we just recommend a higher speed for our applications. It is not mentioned on our download page since we do not want to discourage people using slower cards and it is not a necessity.

    Sorry to pester you with questions, Heiner. The installation runs fine, but I can’t get to Max2play in a browser. On my MacBook I can see max2play as a shared computer, but I get an error when I try to connect. Max2play even shows up as a player on my Squeezeserver software. But neither in Safari nor Firebox can I access the web interface. Sometimes the browser finds your web site, other times it can’t open the page. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Martin,
    The exact line you should type in into the URL bar should be “http://max2play/”. If you still cannot access the web interface, you can access your router’s web interface and look for Max2Play’s IP. You can then enter the IP that is listed for the device “Max2Play” in your URL bar to access Max2Play’s web interface.
