Plugin Squeezebox Server

Plugin Squeezebox Server

The plugin Squeezebox Server enables the Logitech Media Server (Squeezebox Server) to play music and internet radio on the Max2Play device.

The plugin offers the possibility to install and update the Logitech Media Server (LMS) in the plugin’s menu. For this purpose, you can either filter compatible LMS versions automatically or manually enter a package source (Debian packages) for the installation. It is possible to change the LMS version at any time. After the installation has finished, you can start and stop the LMS. Up to your needs, you have the possibility to start the server automatically with Max2Play (Autostart).

The actual user interface of the media server is also available through the URL in the plugin’s menu. To make the LMS compatible with Apple Airplay-capable devices, the plugin offers a convenient one click installation of Shairtunes2, in turn a plugin for the LMS itself.
