    Glad it helped. There is an option for updating the „Squeezelite Extensions“ (playback of WAV/AIFF, FLAC, MP3, OGG and AAC) on the Main Page. But I think they are installed by default, so there’s no need to install them manually.

    24. Juli 2017 at 22:29 #30113

    @rwanou: No, PiCorePlayer does not force conversion to FLAC. Have you installed the Squeezelite Extensions and the FFMpeg libraries on the Main Page of the PiCorePlayer web interface? I think, some of this is necessary to be able to play ALAC files.
    If you have installed these things and it still converting them to FLAC, check your settings in Logitech Media Server (Settings –> Player –> Audio).

    You said „This is always a possible solution, but not one they need to navigate to the Max2Play forums for.“
    I have to disagree, because this is a Max2Play issue, so it belongs here. And if jumping to a different platform is the only known solution that works, it belongs here, too.

    24. Juli 2017 at 18:56 #30107

    I can only agree with anotbot – I had exactly the same issue. Switching from Max2Play to PiCore Player instantly solved the problem – both with exactly the same LMS, exactly the same server with exactly the same settings. All suggestions to solve the problem when using Max2Play failed.

    24. Juli 2017 at 17:24 #30099

    Same here. No WiFi connection, I use LAN connection. I am not sure if the problem is only with ALAC files. I think I remember I had the same issue with FLAC and MP3s, but I’m not sure about this.

    Hi Heiner,

    My argument for PiCorePlayer is the same as anotbot’s: Max2Play has a bug. When playing from a network source (Logitech Media Server) it often plays only the first few seconds of a track and then goes silent – even if LMS is installed directly on the SD card in the Pi and only the music folder is on a network drive. PiCorePlayer doesn’t have this bug and just works.

    It has nothing to do with Airplay. The Airplay question was a different question that rwanou had.

    22. Juli 2017 at 16:47 #30043

    Hi rwanou,
    PiCorePlayer completely replaces the Max2Play system on my Pi. My Logitech Media Server is installed directly on the SD card in my Pi. The music folder is on a Synology NAS.
    There shouldn’t be any problem though, if the LMS is installed on a Max2Play device in your network. The PiCorePlayer should be able to access it without problems.

    AirPlay with Shairtunes for LMS works fine for me when LMS is installed directly on the Pi with PiCorePlayer. However, it did not work for me when I installed LMS directly on the Synology NAS instead.
    PiCorePlayer also has a Shairport option, so this would work in any case, but I don’t like Shairport because the album covers are not displayed on my Pi touch screen when using Shairport.

    I don’t know if it’s possible to have two agents installed on one Pi.

    22. Mai 2017 at 18:48 #29007

    I have now installed LMS directly on the Pi (with the NAS as network mount point), activated ShairTunes2 and it works instantly. 🙂 Great!

    22. Mai 2017 at 15:22 #29002

    Thank you so much! It’s working fine now with PiCorePlayer and the installation was easy! The only thing is: I can’t get ShairTunes working, but I’ll figure it out somehow. The Logitech Media Server is installed on my Synology NAS – maybe ShairTunes works only if I install it directly on the Pi? I don’t like the Shairport solution, because the airplayed tracks don’t show up in the player on the touch screen.

    22. Mai 2017 at 12:01 #28993

    Thanks for the info! Is there a way to install PiCorePlayer without having to re-format the SD card?

    18. Mai 2017 at 14:29 #28925

    The same here: When adding the port number (9000) to the -s command, the player disappears from the iPeng App and from the web interface.

    17. Mai 2017 at 14:41 #28887

    Hi Mohammad,

    I have added the -s [server] [:port] in the commandline settings as you suggested (I didn’t know the port, so I used only the server address).
    But still the same problem. I can reproduce the problem, because there are some tracks where it plays only a few seconds almost every time. Sometimes the time display of the track still continues to move, but it stays silent. Sometimes I can jump in the middle of the track and it will continue to play from there, sometimes not.
    I don’t think that the server connection is lost, because I can always navigate through my music folder and jump to other tracks instantly and they might (or might not) play normally.

    — Here is the debug info of the Squeezebox server (I have copied the info of the last couple of days only – please tell me if you need the full debug info):

    Raspberry Pi 3 Modell B
    IQaudIO DigiAmp+
    Raspberry Pi 7“ Touch Display
    (this bundle:
    https://shop.max2play.com/de/raspberry-pi-bundle-7-display-iqaudio.html,
    newest version, arrived yesterday).
    Max2Play shows version 2.42.

    Created a mountpoint (CFIS) for the music folder (all Apple Lossless files) on my Synology NAS (DS116). Created a Logictech Mediaserver on the Pi (Nightly 7.9.1).

    The Pi is connected to the network via Ethernet/LAN, the Synology as well.

    When I start playing music in Squeezelite, very often it plays only a few seconds of the track, then there is no sound anymore. When I restart the track, it plays these few seconds again, and then again no sound anymore.

    In addition to that: Very short lapses/dropouts during playback (even when it manages to play a whole track or album).

    I hope you can help! 🙂

    Same problem here (Raspberry Pi with IQaudIO DigiAmp+)! But not only with a remote server. The music folder is on a Synology NAS, and the server is installed on the Max2Play player.
