    I noticed this on the squeezebox forum and wondered whether this might be a workable solution to incorporate in max2play

    I have one on the way and am also very interested. Any update on how long you think it will take to get an image up and running?

    Only one problem – no ARM version, only PC.

    I would have thought that the problem was that it is a different distro from Max2play and not open source.

    Not 100% sure about stretch. I’m not sure whether you would wish to operate DRC as an LMS plugin or as a gernal plugin for the Max2play distro. (as with Spotify which IIRC can be either). Either case I suspect that you may wish to make sure that the hardware has the power to run it.
    I originally came to this becasue I had used a semi-defunct plugin for lMS called inguz. It seems to have been revised somewhat. It seem to be possible to get it to work but it would be much more useful for ordinary users if it could be combined into an easy package in M2P

    Similarly some people seem to be able to get the Brutefir plugin to work, but I found it very fiddly.
    For brutefir outside of LMS does this help?

    I don’t know whether it may be possible, when usings a room correction filter generated elsewhere, to simpkly apply the filter using SoX.

    I’m not familar with any other implementations for linux but hope other can chip in if they know of any others.

    Heiner- any chance of your looking into this. I’m sure that for people of your talents adding the ability to load a convolution filter would be easy enough.

    well obviously I’ve been overwhelmed with the generosity of the response. For reasons I can;t understand the problem seemed to go away when I nanoed into fstab and substituted the ip address of the nas for its network name. no idea why this was necessary in stretch but not in the previous jessie version, nor whether this would have worked in the max2play network mount tab rather than fstab itself.

    Yes it seems to be working fine for me under Jessie. It’s worth noting that you keep the Spotify plugin but you have to remove the plugin Spotify protocol handler. Otherwise very straightforward for anyone running the latest Max2play Jessie image.

    My apologies. Yes, May2play’s implementation of LMS is excellent and currently works very well with spotify.

    Thanks -I will try a new max2play install

    I suspect from your last post about the properly „functioning solutions“ that you may not be aware that they are based on libspotify which is going to cease to work some time this year. This has been announced by spotify, but the precise date remains certain. This has been covered in detail over at forums.slimdevices. Apologies if you did realise that (of course the existing solutions are currently still working- but for how long?)

    It is therefore essential for a new solution to be found either by using spotify connect or by adapting the existing plugins to use Librespot. This is the premise behind the title to this thread. I’m sure spotify connect would be great for some people but the native spotify plugin in LMS is a real bonus and something which marks it out from other music software (eg certainly Roon, and also I think JRiver, perhaps also Volumio)which does not have a built in Spotify functionality. I think that a a lot of users would therefore benefit from the development of the new Spotty app- it’s a case of „everything has to change so that everything can stay the same“

    I’m sure you have many other calls on your resources but I think this is important enough that it would be worth one of your programmers dropping a line to Michael Herger to see whether there is anything easy that can be done to make the max2play install compatible with spotty.

    Ok I have had a go installing the new „spotty“ plugin which if it workd will allow lms users to continue using a spotify plugin without having to go over to a connect server as threatened later this year.

    Unfortunately it appears that this will not work on my max2play installation using rasbian wheezy because it is using GLIBC 2.13. It seems that Spotty may require GLIBC 2.17 or 2.18

    So Max2Play people, can I update GLIBC on my existing installation or would I be better off using a fresh Max2play install with Jessie?

    It would be great if other could have a go on this too as it is really important to be able to keep spotify working under LMS with max2pay

    18. Mai 2017 at 11:13 #28901

    This is a different angle from a max2play plugin as such but Heiner have you seen that the ever-wonderful Michael Herger is testing a new plugin using the Librespot library here
    I have not had the chance to try it out with max2lay yet, but it would be great if we could give Michael any assistance necessary to make sure this works with Max2play (he says it is ok with raspbian but it seems perhaps not with picorelayer.) Perhaps I should start a new thread?

    Flysurfer. As I understand it LMS automatically downloads the new nightly. Is there a way max2play could check this so it doesn’t;t have to download twice. Also is there a way of directly accessing the command line from within max2play without having to use PuTTy?

    26. April 2016 at 13:35 #19973

    I’d be really pleased if you could get this working, and I suspect other people would be interested too.

    Hi Heiner
    I managed to get better results by manually installing tightvnc on the pi which produced a much nicer window for me. As per

    I’m not sure I follow abut the samba share. I had set up my network drive separately from the max2play mount as a samba share, but couldn’t work out how to access it from the save window in audacity.
    The only way I have managed to do what I wanted to was by logging in to max2play as root and accessing the mnt folder using audacity to save my project.

    It’s still pretty cool for me to be able to use the pi as a recording device as well as a music player.
