    Is there a link for this now?

    And also, I am still a bit puzzled by this discussion. What I THINK many of us would like to be able to do, is to tell Google Home what to do with our audio sound board through max2play. I, for instance, have a HifiBerry sound board connected to a a Niles SVL-6 ’speaker selector‘, which allows me to play music on any of the 5 pairs of (hard-wired) speakers that are connected to it throughout our house. So I would like to be able to tell LMS through a Google Home command to play a certain song or radio station on those speakers.

    This works great, for instance, through Plex for video (and I guess also for audio, but then only to play on network-connected devices). So I can just ask Google Home (through FlexTV) to play a certain movie or tv show (or even episode, or even a certain sport within that episode) just through a voice command. For a cool example, see here. Is something like this possible for max2play?

    Or even simpler – is there a way to tell Google Home to stream something through squeezer to max2play („Ok Google. Play song X on max2play“)?

    It seems to me that the real issue is not so much Google Chromecast, as Google Home, which is quickly starting to become the world’s leading digital assistant. I have max2play (on Raspberry Pi/HifiBerry Amp+) connected to a(n unfortunately still mechanical) speaker selector, and so I can now easily stream any music through our entire house. At a price that is much cheaper than putting Sonos speakers everywhere (although that’s only because we had the whole house re-wired for sound during our last major renovation). But so yes, I’d definitely be interested in being able to tell Google Home to play something through max2play.

    I had almost given up on max2play because of this problem. But so today I tried burning a new version of max2play – only to find out that there was something wrong with my micro-sd card. I got a new one, installed max2play and bingo! – everything is working beautifully again (including the ethernet connection). I just figured I’d report back just in case anybody else runs into the same problem.

    Thanks Heiner. By activating my sound card, you mean in the Raspberry Settings? I just did that Amp+ Activated (just posting for others who nay have the same problem). And then I do indeed see hifiberry option in the advanced options of squeezelite. . Thanks also for specifying that we have to use different options (sysdefault and default) for different players!

    Thanks. Maybe it should have, but it didn’t. Not with the default settings. I even thought I had a defective car. But as soon as I switched to xbmc/kodi, it worked immediately. And just for myself and others – what are the other non-default‘ settings that we can use?
