CD playback would be great, with potentially track name & album art lookup in some popular music db service

i dont know if it's a "plugin" or another way of implementing this feature, but for those like me who use a usb disk with music stored on it (instead of reading from a NAS or a network drive), i would like to configure spindown time, and other hdparm parameters to have my disk rest a little while i leave volumio powered on 24/7.

regards
eric

If possible ickStream would be nice, according to their site they support some other platforms:

ickStream provides a service for online music services to be available on various home audio devices. Current supported services include Tidal, Qobuz, Deezer, Soundcloud and more
Just.Love.Music.

Today I started off with a fork for Bluetooth A2DP streaming. While the install script seems to be pretty okay already, the actual pairing/communication is quite tricky since BlueZ5.
In addition, I still didn't fully grasp the architecture of the plugin system. Is there any appropriate way to communicate with the other plugin devs, e.g. mailing list or something like that?

I would very much appreciate that, too. Already spent quite a while trying to get that running locally on Beta and RC1, but can't get my drive to play without buffer underrun.

Thanks indeed for looking at that effort: hope Emixam or others may help: hopefully RC2 multiple fixes may have solved some of the reading performance issues too...

Maybe the thread could be moved to a plugin section now...

Hey all,
as I am almost ready to transfer to RC2 now, kudos for all the work you have put into this!

Maybe I should describe my setup before i note my suggestions: I have 2 Spots where i listen, my study with a PC-Audio, here I also manage my huge library, using Musicbee. After the music is tagged I copy it to the NAS (backup!) to our living room for general access. There Volumio is running 24/7 on a RasPi-NAS setup which is connected to the HiFi and controlled by Laptop or just Phone.

While thinking of what i really would like to see as plug-ins/features, first thing coming to my mind would be searching music by customizable filters like I do on my PC with Musicbee

Meaning i.e.Hey, it's partytime, so please 'show me all stuff thats genre Disco or R&B, only ratings >4'

Next thing would be a freely configurable interface with customizable views on my library. One thing i really like about my fav. mpd-client for the PC (Canata) is that you can group music fast and easy by albums/genre or whatever while viewing them in tiles and still can change the sorting a bit. Unfortunately just a bit, indeed. So, similar to the above mentioned search functions, some more stackable filters in views (group by alphabet / group by year / group by rating etc.) would make browsing a huge library so much easier.

First of all I hope I could express my thoughts well enough to get my message through and second I hope these wishes are not to preposterous (sp?) or just plainly crazy. If so forgive me please, I'm just dreaming of the perfect system :)

Tx again for your work, Blue

It's interesting. Is there any opened thread about this? Are you adapting ALSA driver in order to use A2DP or are you using pulseaudio? I successfully used pulseaudio + bluez with volumio 1.55 and A2DP.
