Discussion:
SqueezePlay for Windows with ASIO, DirectSound, WASAPI and WDMKS device support.

I've built a windows version of SqueezePlay with ASIO, DirectSound,
WASAPI and WDMKS audio device support using portaudio library r1871.

It's based on the 7.8 branch Jul 17, 2012 git check in which I've
exported back to subversion as I really dislike git.

The 'SqueezePlay Windows build'
(http://squeezeslave.googlecode.com/files/SqueezePlay-setup-7.8.0r143.exe)
has been tested with WinXP, Vista and Windows 7 32 and 64-bit using all
4 device driver types where supported.

Installation? Just run SqueezePlay-setup-7.8.0r143.exe from the above
link.

There are several User Environment Variables used to provide the ability
to select the output device (USEPADEVICE), maximum sample rate
(USEPAMAXSAMPLERATE), audio device driver (USEPAHOSTAPI) and driver
latency (USEPALATENCY).

To obtain the list of available output devices that can be used for the
USEPADEVICE key you can download the 'latest squeezeslave for windows'
(http://squeezeslave.googlecode.com/files/squeezeslave-1.2-379-win.zip),
extract the zip file and run squeezeslave with the -L option. If you do
not set USEPADEVICE squeezeplay uses the default windows audio device.

'[image: http://ralph_irving.users.sourceforge.net/devices.png]'
(http://ralph_irving.users.sourceforge.net/devices.png/)

The first set of backets after the device number can be used in
USEPAHOSTAPI. The fraction in brackets at the end of the device is the
driver latency recommended low and high values. Squeezeplay uses the
higher value. If you set the latency too low SqueezePlay will "stutter"
during playback or even stop working altogether. It's very rare that
the default would need to be changed. The device name in the middle can
be used to set USEPADEVICE. Note that for the 'Windows WDM-KS' device
the device name would be 'Speakers (Realtek HD Audio output)' *Do not
add any quotes around the names.*

If you have more than one sound card with the same description you can
narrow the search to a specific audio device type by setting
USEPAHOSTAPI.

IF SQUEEZEPLAY WILL NOT CONNECT TO LMS YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE THE
USEPADEVICE AND/OR USEPAHOSTAPI ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES SET INCORRECTLY.

The default maximum sample rate used by this SqueezePlay release is
48000. You can increase the default by setting USEPAMAXSAMPLERATE. If
you set the value higher than your hardware supports SqueezePlay may
crash. Any value higher than 192000 is reset to 192000.

I've tested 96000 and 192000. Setting a sample rate higher than 96000
requires using a current nightly LMS 7.8.0 build.

Thank you very much.

It is working fine on windows 7.

I have noticed that you recently have build many different versions of
SqueezePlay, so I was wondering if you are planning to make an ARM build
as well?

The reason for my asking is, that I have bought a Raspberry board, and I
will try to use it as a dedicated player using SqueezePlay. I have
better success with synchronizing if I use SqueezPlay as compared with
SquuezeSlave, because the latter needs to transcode some of my radio
streams to 44100, which is not needed if I use SqueezePlay.
This experience is on windows and Debian computers, I haven't tried on
the Raspberry board yet (mainly because I have been unable to run fin a
SqueezPlay that can be used on this board)

No, I have no plans at the moment. Mainly because I don't do cross
compiling, it's always been problematic for me and I don't own an RPI.
My main reason to creating these builds was to make SqueezePlay run on
my Solaris SPARC Sun Ray devices. There is a build of SqueezePlay for
RPI but apparently there are still issues with the hardware SDL
implementation. The Linux ALSA version does not need any of my
modifications as it uses alsa-lib to query the hardware for the max
sample rate and you can easily change the default ALSA device using
.asoundrc or modifying the usersettings files created by squeezeplay.

It is SqueezePlay. The post clearly explains why the SqueezeSlave cap is
there.

Hi Ralphy

Any chance of a build of Squeezeplay for RaspberryPi? I'm happily
running your build of squeezeslave on the Pi - it's running great, but
I'd love to give Squeezeplay a try.

Hi psketch

If you read a few responses above (post no 4) in this tread, you will
see that Ralphy already answered this question - and there is no plan at
the moment for an ARM version of SqueezePlay.

New version 'r158 available on googlecode'

You directed me to this thread.

I downloaded the version of Squeezeplay from the link in your first
post, but the behavior I described has not changed; I cannot get it to
play through USB. I thought maybe I also needed to download
Squeezeslave, but when I bring it up it just shows a blank black
window.

As I mentioned in the other thread, I'm not computer savvy but would
like to get this to work. Can I touble you to post simple step by step
instructions for this novice? :o

Thanks.

I did read post #1 several times, but I just don't have the computer

I guess I'll just leave this for the more advanced user and stick with
streaming via wifi for now.

Try setting the usb device as your default sound device, start
squeezeplay and then change your default device to something else.

Thanks for the tip. :)

When I go into Contol Panel to look at the sound devices, the USB device
is there (with a checkmark by it) but the button to set it as the
default device is greyed out. The other two devices that appear (the
laptop speakers and I believe the optical output) don't have the default
option greyed out. So it appears my laptop won't let me set the USB
device (M2Tech hiFace) as the default audio device?

It's possible I might have another option to do what I want. I have
Foobar2000 on my laptop and it works fine with my hiFace. I've read
there are apps that can control Foobar2000 using my iPad Mini, so I
might check out that option.

Also, perhaps I should again compare wifi streaming vs wired using the
hiFace to see if there really is a difference in AQ. Is there any
technical reason why there would be? If there really isn't a difference
then there's not much point pursuing the "wired" option (well, at a
minimum this is educational).

Thanks again. :)

Dear Ralphy,

I tried to bring run your nice squeezeplay version R0158 with high
resolution wave formats.

The soundoutput analog is set to 24bit 192kHz; testsound is O.K.
System W7, 64bit

I installed first LogitechMediaServer-7.8.0-1353679004.exe from today
I installed your version Squeezeplay R0158.

I can play 24bit 192Khz flac formats, but not Wave 24bit 96/192kHz.

If I look to Environmental variables; I canŽt find the

"There are several User Environment Variables used to provide the
ability to select the output device (USEPADEVICE), maximum sample rate
(USEPAMAXSAMPLERATE), audio device driver (USEPAHOSTAPI) and driver
latency (USEPALATENCY)."

As I understood I have to start the software squeezeslave:

"To obtain the list of available output devices that can be used for the
USEPADEVICE key you can download the latest squeezeslave for windows,
extract the zip file and run squeezeslave with the -L option. If you do
not set USEPADEVICE squeezeplay uses the default windows audio device."


I donŽt understand, why the squeezeslave-1.2-379.exe
is opening a dos task windows, but IŽm not able to write into this
window.

It seems; I didnŽt understood the correct prozedure to run Squeezeplay
high resolution.
Any idea what I made wrong?

Thank you in advance

1st of all - dos is dead. You mean the command shell which is cmd.exe -
not command.com.
And if you start a shell or a shell Programm - you can see the initial
shell (that calls the App) and if the app is working and had no menu or
an sub where you can interact with the app you cant write into this
shell.

So maybe....

Open a shell
Drop with ur mouse the exe into that shell
Push the spacekey and wrote the parameter
-or make a lnk from the exe and give that lnk your prefered
parameters.

Can you describe what part(s) of post #1 are not clear?

To play sample rates higher than 48000 you MUST set the
USEPAMAXSAMPLERATE environment variable as laid out in the first post.
Otherwise anything above 48000 is down sampled to 48000 by LMS.

I can confirm that 24bit 96000 and 192000 wav files play with the latest
7.8 LMS provided you haven't changed any of the file type settings in
LMS.

What part of my post made you think that I had not set the environment
variables correctly ? Can you describe your thought processes in
replying in such a brusque manner ?

I have changed the file type settings for WAV to disabled except for PCM
which is native, would these changes have caused it to no longer work ?

Really?

It was a serious question. I would update the post if parts of it are
unclear. I was not trying to be rude.

I tested with the default

Code:
--------------------
WAV FLAC flac/sox
MP3 lame
PCM Native
--------------------


I'll try it with only pcm.

Thanks for the support. Squeezeplay R158 is now playing HDA Wave.

But I found a small problem:

while playing a track, the timer status bar is jumping to sero position
and after short time back to the actual played time.
I have installed LogitechMediaServer-7.8.0-1353679004 2013 01 08.exe and
Squeezeplay R158.
This time jump you can see at:
Squeezeplay R158
LMS 7.8 beta
iPeng for iPad

Is this a problem of the beta server?

My other devices (hardware and old software player, Squeezeplay 7.7.2)
havnŽt this problem.

Any idea?

I installed the newest 7.8 and it seem to be solved.



But I have another problem:

I installed squeezeplay on several PCs and two of them have the same MAC
adress in LMS 7.8.
PC 1 squeezeplay is using the same Mac adress like PC 2 which is causing
collision during the use.

My question to RALPHY: How are you reading out the MAC adress?

Is this done once during the installation or read out with every start
of squeezeplay?
I tried several installations but it is not changing to the physical MAC
adress of PC 1.

How can I change the MAC in your squeezeplay to the correct (physical)
adress of PC1?

Thank you in advance

It's the same as the official build, which says this in the code;

//take the first found mac address.
//todo: can we be smarter about which is the correct address

The MAC should be read at every startup.

Shut down Squeezeplay and try deleting the userpath folder, mine is
located at.

C:\Documents and Settings\Ralphy\Application Data\SqueezePlay\userpath

and start squeezeplay again.

Dear Ralphy,

you got it!!!
Thank you very much for your quick help.

Now the MAC in LMS for your squeezplay version is the physical MAC of my
PC 1 as exspected.

Dear Ralphy,


if I compare V158 to V192 I cannŽt find in V192 the radio folder.
Externally controlled by ipeng it is possible to start the radio, this
is clear.
But not with squeezeplay V192 on my computer.
(I checked if someting is deactivated in the main menu but all is
activated).

Is this a feature or a bug?

Hi, I'm trying to set up a Windows 7 x64 PC as "squeezebox" playing up
to 24-96 flac files to a TE7022 device using a WASAPI driver.

Firstly I tried Squeezeslave and managed to get this working with the
correct driver using squeezeslave-wasapi.exe, however Hi Res files were
downsampled and a search of the interweb revealed that this does not
work.

I then tried Sqeezeplay and this does work. The only problem is that I
only get options for DirectSound Drivers not WASAPI drivers.

Is there any way I can use WASAPI drivers as shown by
squeezeslave-wasapi.exe -L

Hello. I Have a Squeezebox Touch in the listening room - the only player
on the network. My music collection is located on a NAS, on which LMS is
installed. I've installed SqueezePlay on my PC (Windows 7 x64) in my
office and synchronized it with the Touch in LMS so that I can listen to
the same music on both rooms. The problem is that since I've installed
SqueezePlay and synchronized, at random points in a song the players
suddenly stop and jump to the end of the last file in the play list.
I've tried three albums so far and it's happened twice. Do you have any
idea how I can find the cause of the problem?

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this - I tried your version to
see if it would make a difference, but alas it hasn't.

Anyway thanks for your work. If I could get it to work it would be
great.

I've had similar problems withe Squeezeplay on two different Windows 7
x64 laptops. One has been attached to my home theatre system and
installed for nearly 4-years without problem. The only things that get
changed are Windows Update, and the latest Avast antivirus. The other
player is on my work issued laptop, Windows 7 x64, this time protected
by McAfee. Both are only ever used on a private home network, with
either radio or mp3/music from a NetGear ReadyNAS LMS.

Both are syncronized in a ring with 4x Logitech hardware players. I
mostly only use the worklaptop as a remote when I'm sat out on the front
porch, I started it tonight, and the syncronized music started playing
on the lpatop, but the player wouldnt connect to the LMS. I had to add
security rules for both players in order to get them to work.

FYI, somethings changed in both Antivirus programs to make this happen.

Hi - I'm trying to build a SW solution to have some connection between
my logitech system and my Sonos extension. I'm using a HW bridge
currently that works very well, but some other discussion in that forum
made me wonder if I could do something better. here is what I described
in the other thread

---------------
In fact, I was thinking that is I can get a multiple instance of
SqueezeLite, all feeding different streams connected to Sonos
controller, it might be an interesting solution. In other words

SqueezeLite:1 ==> Stream:1 ==> Sonos device:1
SqueezeLite:2 ==> Stream:2 ==> Sonos device:2
. . . . .
SqueezeLite:N ==> Stream:N ==> Sonos device:N

So, from LMS, each Sonos device would be a separated SqueezeLite entity,
so it would be independently controllable as far as volume and what is
played on to it. From Sonos controller, what is needed is to play a
different stream on each device. Synchronization is not likely to work,
but it can be achieved by connecting multiple Sonos devices to a single
stream

-------------------
For tests, I've started to work with ffmpeg, ffserver and vlc. I guess
before I spent too much time there I was wondering if some wise guy
could tell me if I'm wasting my time

NB : I'm a software developer - a bit rusted I have to say, but that is
at the origin my education : software engineer, so with some work I'm
usually able to deal with things

Thank you so much, Ralphy!\

I have been a long time LMS on linux user and a while ago I was testing
Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 r2 and I noticed a different sound from the
server 2012 r2, more detailed.
So I got a license and converted my headless music system to MS Server
2012 r2, at first with foobar2000 (wasapi) and MonkeyMote.

Yesterday I search for wasapi support with squeezeplay and I found this
discussion.
I installed LMS and SqueezeLite (WDM-KS) and it's awesome, awesome,
awesome!

In order to autostart squeezelite I created a standard local account and
enabled autologin to that account.
Then in that account I modified the registry for the local user and
replaced explorer.exe with squeezelite (with additional command line
options) as login shell.

The sound is a great pleasure, and I enjoy the LMS features again!

Thank you very much!

So just to check - you are saying that you heard a difference in the
audio quality between the LMS server running on different OS platforms,
but with the same player/client?

No, I don't intent to make such claim, Julf.

Over the last five years I have explored several configurations with
different hardware, operating systems and audio applications.
That includes compiling SqueezePlay for ARM devices.
For a long time I have settled for a configuration that supports playing
my local NPR station. This streaming radio station requires resampling,
though.
Unlike some other NPR stations.
With my current setup, my local NPR station is no longer supported.

In this thread of requests for support, I just want to say that setup is
*straight forward* and the result is enjoyable.

I've setup Squeezeplay to control a squeezelite instance on a Windows
8.1 tablet (Dell Venue Pro 8).

Ive edited some of the skins and have it looking good in full screen but
while what I have is usuable I have two questions.

Can the "long push" on items be change to a right click? Really just an
idiosyncrasy of how right click works via touch device in Win 8 but you
can get to the context menus as there is no way to do a long push of the
primary mouse button (windows thinks its a right click). Otherwise is
there a keyboard shortcut for it. In the Wiki I saw a few different
ones (A va a, P vs. p) depending on context but I am not sure if thats
applicable to the latest version of Squeezeplay (7.8...)

Leading to that, is there a way to reorder tracks on the now playing
playlist (short of using play next to modify it). Even with a mouse it
doesn't look like this is editable, whereas the web ui you can hold and
drag and drop tracks to change their order.

Ralphy, I've made good use of the new squeezeplay ability to use
environmental variables to select the desired Audio Device.
I use this to switch between playing audio inside and outside the house.
The inside audio amp is hooked up to the coax SPDIF output and outside
is hooked up to the analogue audio out.

I tried to automate the switch today but even with a 10 second delay,
squeezeplay doesn't seem to be picking up on the environment variable
change. It will detect it if I close squeezeplay a second time and
restart it.

Here's how I tried to automate the switch from inside audio to both
inside and outside audio.
I set up two cmd batch files with shortcuts on the desktop.

InsideAudio.bat
REM Set Environment Variable so SqueezePlay uses the "Realtek HDA SPDIF
Out"
SETX USEPADEVICE "SPDIF Out (Realtek HDA SPDIF Out)"
c:
CD\Program Files (x86)\SqueezePlay
Timeout 10
Start squeezeplay.exe
********************************************
Note: This works great at first. The environmental variable changes (I
leave USEPAHOSTAPI set to "Windows WDM-KS" because it doesn't need to
change)
********************************************
OutsideAudio.Bat (Really enables the same stream inside and outside).
REM Set Environment Variable so SqueezePlay uses the Virtual Cable
SETX USEPADEVICE "Line Out (Virtual Cable 1)"
REM Set up Audio Repeater to split the Virtual Cable output stream for
both inside and outside
start "Inside_Audio_Stream" "%programfiles%\Virtual Audio
Cable\audiorepeater_ks.exe" /Input:"Virtual Cable 1" /Output:"Realtek
HDA SPDIF Out" /BitsPerSample:32 /Autostart
start "Outside_Audio_Stream" "%programfiles%\Virtual Audio
Cable\audiorepeater_ks.exe" /Input:"Virtual Cable 1" /Output:"Realtek
HD Audio Output" /BitsPerSample:32
Timeout 10
c:
CD C:\Program Files (x86)\SqueezePlay
Start squeezeplay.exe
****************************************
Again, This all works fine.

The problem happens when I change between the 2 modes using these
scripts.
For example. I use the insideaudio script then listen for awhile. Stop
squeezeplay. Run the other script and even with the 10 second delay, it
doesn't seem to apply the environment variable change. I can open the
environment variables and see the change occurred. However, without
doing anything else, if I exit squeezeplay then start it again, it plays
fine through the desired audio device. The same thing happens if I then
switch it to outside.

Any thoughts? I'm using 7.8.0 r417

Windows WDM-KS support was removed from r417.

I'm guessing the match is being made with the MME or Direct Sound device
equivalent for both scripts unless you've replaced the portaudio.dll.

Hi. I've been using squeezeplay for ages on my laptop and desktop
without any issues. Many thanks for all the work that has been put into
this (Windows version).
It now won't connect to my music server.

Things that appear to have changed recently:
LMS (new version)
ESET AV (new version) - I have tried disabling ESET completely but still
no joy.

I have tried uninstalling and installing the latest squeezeplay version.

Any ideas?

Thanks Charlesr, I've had this problem recently and would have thought
to look at ESET as the culprit :mad: Made my day, as I was experiencing

I'm having problems with this. I have a WinXP PC with Squeezeplay,
ASIO4ALL and M2Tech USB converter. I usually leave the PC running 24/7,
but I shut down Squeezeplay since when I leave it on, it sometimes
crashes and freezes Windows.
I set the variables USEPADEVICE and USEPAHOSTAPI to the values showed by
Squeezeslave. After a PC reboot everything worked fine. Then, if I shut
down Squeezeplay and start it, say, next day again, eveything still
looks fine (Squeezeplay activates the ASIO driver etc, connects to LMS)
but there is no sound. I have to reboot the PC and then all is OK again.
Any ideas?
Cheers

Hi,

I'm trying to get this version of Squeezeplay to work via WASAPI with
the HRT Streamer II on Windows 7 64 bit. Squeezeslave -L yields the
following:

* 2: (Windows DirectSound) Primary Sound Driver (119/239)
3: (Windows DirectSound) Speakers (2- Music Streamer II) (119/239)
4: (Windows DirectSound) Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio)
(119/239)
5: (Windows WASAPI) Speakers (2- Music Streamer II) (3/10)
6: (Windows WASAPI) Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio) (3/10)
8: (Windows WDM-KS) Speakers (Realtek HD Audio output) (10/40)
11: (Windows WDM-KS) Speakers (Music Streamer II) (10/85)

I've set the following environment variables:

USEPADEVICE - Speakers (2- Music Streamer II)
USEPAHOSTAPI - Windows WASAPI
USEPAMAXSAMPLERATE - 96000

However, Squeezeplay simply hangs with these settings. Changing
USEPAHOSTAPI to Windows Directsound works fine though, but the sample
rate is fixed by the Windows device.

Any ideas?

I'd suggest trying WDM-KS instead.

USEPADEVICE - Speakers (Music Streamer II)
USEPAHOSTAPI - Windows WDM-KS
USEPAMAXSAMPLERATE - 96000

WASAPI is using shared mode which means you need to set the sample rate
to match the source you're trying to play.

I had the same issue, got round it by not specifying a USEPAHOSTAPI ie
deleting that variable and setting my wasapi device to be the default,
worked ok, although had latency issues playing 192/24, 96 was ok.

Since it is beta , i have a request: using a 28 inch screen i have lots

Has any thought been given to putting Squeezeplay for Windows and other
platforms somewhere easily accessible?

I had to look quite a bit before I found the download in this thread.

Thanks.

What would you consider easily accessible? The file has been downloaded
over 2700 times.

Newer builds will be located elsewhere, as googlecode has removed the
ability to add files for download.

Been testing googledrive, but I'm not too impressed with it, so may
change again.

Hi,
I just installed squeezeplay 7.8.0r328 on a Toshiba encore tablet with a
8 " / 1280 x 800 touchscreen running windows 8.1, and I wonder if there
is a way to change the window size of Squeezeplay, Ie so the GUI fills
the whole screen? Thanks for this great little tool btw. :-)

Hi,
I`m sure it's probably something I`m doing wrong.
But with Squeezeplay 7.8.0 r413 installed on my surface pro running Win
8.1, it runs, but when I select the Sirius XM app, I get the message
that it can`t play that type of file. It works on all my squeezebox
radios.

Also having issues with no audio on spotify, sometimes have audio,
mostly no audio.

Does anyone have any ideas what I could try?

You need to have wma support installed on the server (lms) as
squeezeplay does not support wma directly.

Look for the PlayWMA plugin.

Seems to be luck of the draw which advert you get.
I got the iLivid a few times, but not the SqueezePlay download.

Then a couple of betting sites with the correct download.

Can never understand why the iLivid is still allowed to "advertise"

Thanks for the heads up. I've uploaded r417 in a zipfile, hopefully that
works better.

If you've already downloaded r413, there no need to get r417 as the only
changes are for Solaris.

It would be nice to see someone develop a nice 800x600 pixel (SVGA) skin
for SqueezePlay, which would work nicely on touchscreens of that
resolution. I've always thought SqueezePlay would make an ideal car
audio player, and that's a very common screen resolution for car
computers. It could also be useful with a similarly sized touchscreen on
a computer emulating a Squeezebox in the home.

I've played around with it a bit, but it takes some work. Also, to be
done right, it would require custom sized graphics, buttons, etc.

Hi, after trying squeezelite and softsqueeze on my living room HTPC as
squeezebox clients, this version of squeezeplay almost perfect for my
needs. It syncs perfectly with my squeezebox radio in the kitchen and
has no problems streaming spotify on both clients when synchronized...
Both were issues with squeezelite and/or softsqueeze.
The one remaining problem is: After I use my HTPC for watching videos
with Dolby Digital or DTS using the SPDIF Output, Squeezeplay still
starts playing, but there's no sound anymore!! The only thing that helps
getting it to play sound again is to close it and restart Squeezeplay.

I was curious and tried the same with squeezelite... The sounds stops
when I start the video playback with DTS, but comes right back when the
video stops...

Is this something I can fix using the User Environment Variables, or can
this be fixed programmatically??

Thanks, Frank

Hi,

I installed r417 and it does not seem to be using the user environment
variables I have setup. I uninstalled and went back to r328 and it is
working as expected. Here are the variables I am using:

SetX USEPADEVICE "Speakers (Saffire Audio)"
SetX USEPAHOSTAPI "Windows WDM-KS"
SetX USEPAMAXSAMPLERATE 96000

Am I missing something?

Thanks.

Yes, WDM-KS support is no longer included in the installer
portaudio.dll. Read the first post for details on how to change it back

Hi Ralphy,

Saw your "Support for mac address assignment using UTMAC environment
variable." in the info for the latest 7.8.0r417 build and thought
"great, exactly what I need".

First need to say I'm a PC novice but manage to sort most things out.
I've been using Squeezeplay fo a while and thinks it's great. Just got
me two more computers now thou and in order for separate the players I
need to change the default mac i get when starting squeezeplay, ie
60:fb:42:f5:87:2c,

Hope you please could assist in how to do this? Now since beeing a
novice I could have totally misunderstood something? But they way I
interpret "Support for mac address assignment using UTMAC environment
variable." is like ;
I use "UTMAC" as VARIABLENAME and then in VARIABLE VALUE I set a
"macaddress" (as example) 12-34-56-78-03-04. That didn't work. Then I
tried 12:34:56:78:03:04 and also 123456780304 but still ended up with
the default 60:fb:42:f5:87:2c mac when I started squeezeplay!

Could you please assist and tell me what I'm missing? cheers

OK I solved it. I found reply in this thread, would still be great if
you could explain for an novice what the "UTMAC" variable is for? What
have I not understood? Is it not for setting your own mac when starting
squeezeplay? ; ralphy wrote:

I'm glad I clicked on this thread! Now I have my Win7 PC server synced
perfectly to the rest of my players! I kept getting odd hiccups with the
local player plugin when "maintain syncronization" was checked, and
could not figure it out... Now moving along smoothly, after settling on
180ms audio delay for squeezeplay. Thanks, Ralphy!

Ralphy,

Excellent work. I now have a new Corei5 NUC with Intel HD Audio over
HDMI running with both squeezeplayer and squeezelite.

What I am seeing is that for some flac files, I am having some dropouts
in the FLAC playback at various locations - <=100ms. In the past, I
have overcome this by extracting to WAV and reencoding with Flac 1.2.1.
These files also have 1000x1000 jacket pics inside them as tags. When I
first noticed this issue, Foobar reported a problem converting my FLAC
file to WAV. In the past, this has been an indicator of a problem.
However, today, I have no issues converting with Foobar to WAV.

So, several questions.
1) Is there anyone who has experienced such issues?
2) Is there a FLAC 1.3.X version of the dll for the SqueezePlayer
install that anyone could share? (I don't compilation environment to
build the dll).
3) Is there a FLAC 1.3.X version of SqueezeLite or does anyone know if
it is on the roadmap?

Regards,
Lynnie

Have you tried setting/changing the USEPALATENCY environment variable as
described in post #1?

Also ensure you're running r417.

yes, i started with 86 and then dropped to 43. i am a little unclear if
this setting is used with squeezelite or squeezeplay. is this env var
used for the dll in this version? i thought i had read from some
release notes that they were no longer used. i will give it another try
but the problem seems to occur for example at 1:10 in one flac file and
at for example 0:39 in another. furthermore, i can play a 192 KHz flac
file with no issues. my concern here is more about the version of flac i
am using or the version of mp3tag i have been using.

i will take the value up to 300 and try again. is there a magic number
or formula you would recommend?

Thanks again for this version and for the quick reply. with regard to
this player, can you please confirm if an external dac might help this
issue?

i will up the value and post results.

Regards,
Lynnie

I'm not sure where you read that. USEPALATENCY has been enabled since I
added it to squeazeplay. Only the linux version does not honour it and
that's because ALSA is used to output audio, not portaudio.

jive.exe uses the USEPALATENCY env var, not the portaudio.dll.

I've found that 86 works well for 44100, you need to increase it for
higher bit rates, so dropping it usually introduces more drop outs. I'd
start at 200 for 192k and don"t go higher than 500.

All builds use flac 1.2.1. I've had no reports of issues playing flac
files built with 1.3.x. I'd doubt replacing the flac.dll with a 1.3
will work unless you recompile everything.

No, I don't believe it will make any difference.

Increased the USEPALATENCY to 300 and updated to SqueezeServer 7.8.0.

Tested again, same issue with same file. <100ms dropout at 29-30s
location. Took original file (one that was not tagged using MP3Tag 2.63
and has no textual tags except for ENCODER) and played it. No issue.
Next, took file which I had tagged using MP3Tag 2.63 (aug 23, 2014)
without a jacket picture. Played it. No Issue. Next, took file that
was tagged 2 days ago as a retest.

I believe this has something to do with the tagging put in place by
MP3Tag but have not been able to get to the root of the issue. Will
continue testing and post back.

That is an old version. Try using the squeezeslave.exe from the "latest

Already tried that. When USEPAHOSTAPI is set to "Windows DirectSound"
and USEPALATENCY is set t 239. squeezeplay works (but with no hi res
sound). When set to "Windows WDM-KS" and 40 seems to work but now sound.
When set to "Windows WASAPI" and 10 SqueezePlay fails to start - "jive
has stopped working"

I am new to this forum and I think I read all the posts. I have a SB3
and as I understand its sample rate is 28. If I install ralphy's latest
update I will be able to change my sample rate?? If this is true I will
make my wife so happy and I can spend that money on something else as I
was thinking of upgrading the 3. I still might do it just waiting for
the fall out of the high rez stuff.

I've put together a windows version of Triode's excellent Jivelite
controller.

It's available from my Squeezebox client builds repository on
mediafire.

To download it. Click the link in my signature and navigate to
builds->jivelite->windows.

Installation:

There is no installer and Jivelite for Windows and it does not create
any registry entries.
Just extract the zipfile into any folder, all files are placed in a
subfolder called Jivelite

Running:

Double Click the jivelite.exe program in the Jivelite folder. You can
also create a short cut to it on the desktop.

If you're computer has multiple active network interfaces and after
you've completed the initial setup, jivelite returns from Scanning for
Players without finding one, try this.

After Scanning for Players fails, click and hold the left arrow button
to the left of Choose Player, near the top.

Click Settings->Advanced->Networking->Remote Libraries->Add New
Library.

Enter the IP address of your LMS server and click Done->Connect to this
library.

At this point if you can't connect to the library Quit jivelite and
restart it.

Jivelite should connect to your library right away.

This build has been tested on winxp 32 bit and win7 32 and 64 bit.

Excellent! Thank you, Ralphy!
This is what I was looking forward to a long time!
I can confirm that it runs flawless on a Windows 8.1 Tablet as well.

P.S.: Wouldn't this new software-port warrant its own new thread?
I almost overlooked it as it was "hidden" in this unrelated thread...
Just a thought.....

Trying it now. Generally really good.
Screensaver settings seem to have no effect though - that is only bug I
have found so far.

I think that's a problem with the skin. What skin are you using?

To be sure, please try using the WQVGA Small Print skin to see if it
still happens. After changing the skin restart jivelite before testing.

I don't think it is that Ralph.
I have tried WQVGA.
I think you have introduced a new status (?) not covered by the
screensaver settings.

We have

Now Playing
Stopped = which really equals Paused

and then you have introduced "Off" where the Player being controller has
been switched Off but JiveLite doesn't see this the same as Stopped and
displays the last item being played viz:

It is OK Ralph. I hadn't set up the OFF screensaver properly.

All good that I can see.
