There's life in Squeezebox yet
« on: February 28, 2017, 09:25:32 AM »
To continue the derail - are there any alternatives to LMS yet? Considering Logitech have lost interest, I doubt it 'll last forever.

LMS is 100% open source and there's a large community of users and plugin developers behind it. Added to that there's Squeezelite which effectively turns any PC/SOC into a Squeezebox streamer, plus a UPNP plugin making Logitech's continued involvement irrelevant. As things stand at present there is still no audio streaming solution that's as versatile iro streaming services and flexible iro hardware etc.

Squeezelite may be lite but it aint always easy.

Use something like Daphile and it's all built in and automated.

Besides, with your pockets you should be ROONed for life. :P

Mods maybe move the discussion to digital and close the thread? Crankshaft does 6000 RPM every time this goes to the top :)
