Re: SqueezePlug Version 7 available

Sun Nov 30, 2014 7:21 pm

Still having issues with my thumb drive. I realized it wasn't mounting correctly or mounting after a reboot. I followed this guide, http://www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/2014/0 ... pberry-pi/ substituting root for pi as the user but I am getting the following error: mount: unknown filesystem type 'gid=root'.

This is my fstab file:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/mmcblk0p1 /boot vfat defaults 0 2
/dev/mmcblk0p2 / ext4 defaults,noatime 0 1
# a swapfile is not a swap partition, so no using swapon|off from here on, use dphys-swapfile swap[on|off] for that
#
# This part of the file describes how your external HDs or network shares are connected to SqueezePlug
#
# You should follow this structure:
# every external HD or network share should be mounted under /mnt
# then use "hd1" for the first HD and so on
# NFS shares should be mounted on /mnt/nfs
# Samba shares should be mounted on /mnt/samba
# the rest of the structure is build on the external HD or network share itself, you can arrange this by yourself or by the library script from $

Any suggestions?

Looks like you've got a mix of manual and auto settings, eg. above:

# For USB Fat/Fat32/Ext2/Ext3/Ext4 drives edit the next line e.g.:
3/dev/sdx /mnt/hd1 auto rw,user,auto 0 0

and

# Automatic settings from SqueezePlug scripts starts here:
UUID=1614-4446 /media/usb auto,users,rw,uid=root,gid=root 0 0

Not sure what the 3 is doing there ???

Okay - might be a LMS issue.

At LMS gui

So under file format "MP3", it is set to "native". However, for all the other file formats, ie AAC, MP3 is set to disabled. could that be an issue?

No

I'm at a loss, I'm afraid.

Have you done a firmware update on the Pi ? In squeezeplug setup - one of the options.

yeah, i did the firmware update as part of the installation. But I have a wolfson audio card, and it says not to do any further firmware updates after that. can i still do it without affecting the audio card set up?

Oh-oh - now you tell me! No idea. Guess it's a card issue .... can't help on that. Suggest you post on the slimdevices forum.

Ah, the three was the result of a tired pinky on the shift key and should have been a # sign. Fixed that, deleted the last line. And then tried apt-get usbmount. Going through another database refresh on the LMS server. I think I can mount the device o.k. it is the automount that is a little tricky for me. Anyway, currently, the thumbdrive is located at usb0 (even though I had previously designated it usb) so I will see if it works going forward and if after moving the pi to its operating place on my equipment rack, I can get it to see the thumb drive in the same location.

Still having issues after coming home tonight. The music seems to have an issue buffering. It plays for just a few seconds and then quits. It's like it fills up and then can't continue. Here's my scan report:

This is just frustrating. I think I should be able to play the music off the thumb drive connected directly to the rpi. It's only acting as a server with the music playing on a separate rpi. All Flac files and the thumb drive was formatted a FAT from the get go.

Hi, I tried this, but it didnt make a difference. However I notice on the GUI under "Bitrate Limiting", it says "No Limit" and then underneath that:

"(Note: You do not appear to have LAME installed. Logitech Media Server will need the LAME MP3 encoder installed on your system to do conversion to MP3. You can find out more about LAME here.) "

Do I need LAME installed? Could that be the problem?

No. I just tried squeezelite on a Pi with Kiwi fm - played okay.

I have one more idea to try but before that, check the
post on slimdevices .... earlier

HI all,

I have tried numerous times to download the image for Squeezeplug from www.squeezeplug.de and it keeps dropping the download after about 10MB of the download. Is it available at another host, such as Github or Sourceforge?

Thanks

Hey,

I cant seem to post a reply on slim devices forum... anyway, I can see mp3 listed when i run squeezelite -h in the -c line. It says

-c <codec1>, <codec2> Restrict codecs to those specified, otherwise load all available codecs; known codecs: flaac,pcm,mp3,ogg,aac,dsd (mad,mpg for specific mp3 codec)

Isn't this just a list of what COULD be there, rather than what IS there?

Anyway, if i run

"sudo apt-get install libmad

then

sudo apt-get install libmpg12"

It says:

"E: Unable to locate package libmad"

and " E: Unable to locate package libmpg123"

is that what you expected?

Blast!

I'm getting lost over this.

Can you confirm that it's all mp3 stations?

I wonder if it could be a bit-rate issue?

Try

sudo apt-get install libmad0

that's a zero

Beyond that I've run out of ideas - other than to reinstall without the dac and check whether you get the same problem.

Hey,

So i tried that, but it said the latest version of libmad was already installed.

As far as I can tell, it's all mp3 radio stations i have tried, but i only really notice when a station doesn't play, and all the ones that dont play are mp3.

I uninstalled sequeezelite and re installed it without the wolfson audio card, and now i can play mp3 radio stations strait off the Pi line out, so it is obviously something with the sound card.

Does anyone here know anything about the wolfson audio card and why it wont play mp3 radio stations?

Cheers, Adrian

I uninstalled Squeezelite and when I re installed it and added the Wolfson, it said "looks like wolfson is already installed" or something like that. Do you know how i can uninstall the wolfson stuff without starting from scratch with the LMS as well? I have loaded some accounts, i.e. Slacker, and i have misplaced my password, so don't want to re-load that, if I can help it...

OK, so i just went through the whole install again through squeezeplug (LMS & Squeeezelite), and no luck with the mp3 radio again, unfortunately.

is there anyone else that is using a wolfson audio card?
