Hi, I recently installed M2P and bluetooth plugin on a Zero W. I cannot start the bluetooth soundcard in Squeezelite:
Trying to launch … NOT successful Click here to show detailed information
../../../src/asound/../shared/ctl-client.c:105: Connecting to socket: /var/run/bluealsa/hci0

[22:01:39.438797] output_init_common:382 unable to open output device
And I cannot connect to my bluetooth speaker:

Not sure what might be the problem 😉 I am not an expert and it took me at least several hours of googling etc. to get it working. Strictly following the steps in the video is not enough, unfortunately. I had to manually copy the newest ‚commits‘ to prevent SCS from blocking the hifiberry soundcard (that might be the issue). I use „-C 1“ in squeezeplayer, which means that it unblocks the soundcard if it is not playing after 1 second.
This is exactly why we need Max2play to integrate SCS into their solution 😉27. Februar 2017 at 22:06 #27294
I managed to implement Spotify Connect on my Max2Play Raspberry Pi + HifiBerry following this instruction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqMzXmvW4T8 I think other instructions are available as Well.
I use it in combination with Max2play Squeezelite player. I can switch between spotify-connect and Squeezelite. If you use the newest commits of spotify-connect (especially Pull #18 https://github.com/Fornoth/spotify-connect-web/pull/18) in combination with the -C option in Squeezelite player, the hifiberry audiocard is released by the audioplayer (spotify-connect or Squeezelite) when it is not playing. This works fine.27. November 2016 at 11:55 #24280

The only problem is that both try to use the same output device, I get an error when I try to start Squeezelight:
[10:35:50.562781] test_open:294 playback open error: Invalid argument
[10:35:50.563179] output_init_common:381 unable to open output device
Maybe a solution to switch between players sharing the same output device (similar to MultiShairport) is possible?
