    Yap, currently I listen to music w/o Kodi, using squeezer as control app. Works well enough. The next steps will have to wait till rpi prices are back to normal 🙂
    Maybe that would be a good feature request to somehow have a direct routing from kodi audio output to the Lms,to get the whole thing really integrated. But I don’t know if this is somehow feasible.

    Sure, my pleasure 🙂

    Well, I’m a big fan of kodi + yatse. I have it running on my pi in the living room (see first post) connected via hdmi to my Beamer. Since yesterday I play the sound via dac+ to my amp and speakers in the living room.

    The media+TV I stream from my central Pi4 in the bureau (always on). There, currently also the lms is running.

    I also use the living room pi to play music only (Beamer switched off). Now I had the idea to stream the music also to some players in kitchen and bathroom. Since I like the features of yatse a lot (voice control, music, videos, TV, video recorder in one app), my goal is to select the music in yatse and stream it multiroom. So I tried to add a second pi (zero w) with m2p to the living room, running lms. This should be connected to my kodi-pi via Bluetooth and stream the input to Lms. From Lms all players shall be served with the music:
    1. Living room (player on pi zero)
    2. Kitchen, pi zero w, m2p
    3. Bathroom, pi zero w, m2p

    I hope it’s understandable without diagram 🙂

    Remark: I do not run lms directly on the kodi-pi since I do not know if there is a way to stream the audio to Lms other than BT and because the player is switched off as soon as I start kodi.

    Thanks and Best,

    Thanks Mario for those clarifications! 🙂

    It is true, the BT feature is not really working well on zero and 3. So I gave up on using Kodi (libreelec) as single media source streaming via Bluetooth to my raspi zero to stream it from there to the LMS BT-in. I just could not establish the BT connection between the pis. The 3 discovers the zero but cannot connect. The zero discovers the 3 very rarely and no connection is established.(benchmark: the BT connection is what pcP does very well with those pis)

    Maybe a new try with better hw in the future.

    For now I’m very happy with my setup and am living with the small things to improve in the future:
    1. I need 2 apps, 1 for multiroom music listening (squeezer) and one for TV: yatse.
    2. When I switch of my devices I need to click my http command for shutting down max2play before cutting power to spare the SD card.

    Just one question again: As soon as I have the BT-in stream working on the LMS, this stream can be played synchronously on all players connected to the LMS (this is what I could not accomplish with pcP, since the stream is only played on the player that is connected to the BT input device (e.g.Raspi with kodi running on libreelec))

    Thanks and best,

    I had the same problem.
    The Netflix addon is installed from the castagnaIT repo. I had this repo on my NAS and installed the repo & addon directly in kodi, not via the max2play repo installation function.

    The error log reads as this:
