SkweezyDs plugin for SqueezeCenter

SqueezeCenter control and media serving for your DS

SkweezyDs is a plugin for Logitech's  Squeezebox Server application which enables this to be used to control and serve media to any Linn DS product.

This links a physical  Squeezebox device (or  SqueezePlay emulator) to a Linn DS player, enabling the DS player to mimic the operation of the linked Squeezebox.

Features

  • Squeezebox Server serves media to DS (eliminating requirement for UPnP Media Server)
  • DS controlled using any Squeezebox controller
  • Full control and playback of local audio files at full resolution
  • Gapless playback
  •  MusicIP integration
  • Internet Radio (more info)
  • Volume control (internal and linked Linn preamp)
  • Source selection (internal and linked Linn preamps)

Not currently supported

  • Streaming services (SqueezeNetwork, LastFM, Raphsody etc)

Installation and Configuration

  • Full instructions are given here

  • IR handset with Squeezebox 1/2/3/Classic and Transporter
  • Duet controller (with Duet receiver / any Squeezebox / SqueezePlay)
  • Web interface (with Duet receiver / any Squeezebox / SqueezePlay)

Earlier Python Versions

The original SkweezyDs was developed as a standalone application in Python. This code is now unsupported, but the downloads, change logs and installation instructions are still available here

Please NOTE

SkweezyDs has been developed as a hobby project in my own time. It is NOT currently an official Linn developed project (although I am a Linn employee). As such any further development and support will be on an ad-hoc basis by myself when time and circumstances permit.
