Squeeze Player
by wayne@angrygoat on 11/17/2014 | ; Tags: - none - | 0 comments


A software Squeezebox player. If you've never heard of Squeezebox please do a Google search before downloading. This is a companion for my other apps Squeeze Control and Squeeze Control XL, so there are no playback controls.  You will have to control this app with your Squeezebox Server's web interface or the above mentioned apps.

This app was never finished, but it should be stable enough for normal use. If you're curious what the finished app would have been like, check out SB Player on android.

- Works with a local Squeezebox Server, with preliminary support for MySqueezebox.com. There's currently no way to directly register the app with your MySqueezebox account. You'll first have to connect to a local server and then use a controller(or Squeeze Control) to tell the app to switch to using MySqueezebox.com. After doing this once, you should be able to connect directly the next time.
- Native decoding of FLAC, AAC, ALAC, ogg, mp3, aif, & PCM formats. Your local server will automatically convert all other formats.
- Internet Streams: Only http and Shoutcast protocols are supported, which should be most streams. This includes apps like AccuRadio, Slacker, MP3tunes.
- The free version of Pandora doesn't work. Logitech restricts it from working with software players. The paid version may work but untested, Rhapsody doesn't work.
- Streams using unsupported formats or protocols should still work if the app is connected to a local server.   
- Sychronization works, but will never be perfect. A software player on a low power device is just not accurate enough.
This is only available in the App Gallery for webOS 3.0 devices (Pre 3, Touchpad, Touchpad Go)
It can work on webOS 2.1+ devices but there are prerequisites.  Please visit the Squeeze Player thread in my forum for more details.
