[Guide] Install Squeezelite on Volumio (RaspPi)

Postby swindmiller » Tue Nov 11 2014 21:01

I just set this up on my Pi. I am currently using the analog audio port and get a bunch of crackling and popping when playing thru Squeezelite. I have a LMS server on a windows machine and am controlling squeezelite thru the Logitech IOS app.
Airplay works and sounds great, its just when I am using Squeeze.

I would prefer to use the analog port if I can.

Thanks,
Scott

Hi, you have to go to /etc/init.d/squeezelite and edit the buffer like this

Code: Select all
 SL_ALSA_PARAMS="200"


Reboot and normaly it will work

Hi,
great idea. Will it also work with the Hifiberry DAC on a RPI B+?
Thanks for answers.

Troubleshooting?
Hi,
thank you for this nice tutorial which I immediately had followed.
I have a RPI B+ and a Hifiberry Soundcard, which worked under RuneAudio.
However, I am having severe problems:
I followed the installation routine provided by you but the RPi is not being recognised by LMS let alone any app on my phone.
I tried to restart the RPI (ie pulling the plug) but to no avail.
When I first had installed Volumio plus Squeezelite I was using a LAN-connection. Now however I use WLAN. Connection the LAN however does not make the RPI appear either.
How can I best deal with these problems? Thank you for replying!

[Guide] Install Squeezelite on Volumio (RaspPi)

hi, in a word: GREAT!

I'm running Squeezebox since 2003, Squeezelite is running on a old P4 intel and an Alix board both with Voyage (was Voyage MPD but ...), both are always on with no problem at all.

I saw someone is asking for Volumio supporting .cue files in another thread, as far as I know, MPD is the problem, and I doubt You could find a way to handle it in a nice way, LMS and Squeezelite handle .cue file in a fair way (not really perfect, but...) and could also derive form cue some meta info (not to say tag becouse they are not really tag, but LMS handle them exactly in the same way) very usefull for classical music like compoer and director, not even standard in cue files.

Could be a winner solution, LMS is a great server side software, squeezelite do it's job very well as player in a very discrete and non intrusive way, Volumio - as an optimized for music os - could be the key to archive very good results.

Now I'm looking for a suitable hardware (processor and DAC) to build a state of the art music renderer, I think we have al the components for a killer here.

Many thanks to everybody for this great job, you make me feel proud to be Italian, and we need it.

Hi,

I tried installing Squeezelite on a Rasp B using this guide, but at the last step when i try starting squeezelite using
Code: Select all
/etc/init.d/squeezelite start
i get this error:
Code: Select all
Error: script /usr/local/bin/squeezelite_settings.sh not found.


Any idea what could be the cause?

Thanks a lot !

Same for me. I use this solution:

Code: Select all
sudo wget http://www.gerrelt.nl/RaspberryPi/squeezelite_settings.sh
sudo mv squeezelite_settings.sh /usr/local/bin
sudo chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/squeezelite_settings.sh

[Guide] Install Squeezelite on Volumio (RaspPi)

Haha thanks, i just found it before you posted :)

But now i have this issue: with the onboard soundcard it is working, but crackling sound when using Squeezelite, normal when using Volumio.

So i installed a USB DAC, and now i only have sound when using Volumio, none when using Squeezelite.

any ideas?

The DAC is setup as the default device (i think) but the sound is still coming out of the RPI soundcard... :'(

Strange thing is also that i can't seem to find this line:

Code: Select all
#SL_SOUNDCARD="sysdefault:CARD=ALSA"


edit:

So i think i have to edit the soundcard here:

Code: Select all
sudo /usr/bin/squeezelite-armv6hf -l


But no idea how to do that .

[Guide] Install Squeezelite on Volumio (RaspPi)

Postby newgin » Sun Apr 19 2015 18:04

Hello,

I have a domoticz server and volumio on my raspberry.

When i try
cd /etc/init.d/
update-rc.d squeezelite defaults

root@volumio:/etc/init.d# update-rc.d squeezelite defaults
update-rc.d: using dependency based boot sequencing
insserv: warning: script 'MyDomoAtHome' missing LSB tags and overrides
insserv: There is a loop between service monit and MyDomoAtHome if stopped
insserv: loop involving service MyDomoAtHome at depth 2
insserv: loop involving service monit at depth 1
insserv: Stopping MyDomoAtHome depends on monit and therefore on system facility `$all' which can not be true!
insserv: exiting now without changing boot order!
update-rc.d: error: insserv rejected the script header

Thanks for your help
