[RELEASE]XSqueeze - Squeezebox player, music chooser and visualiser for XBMC - bossanova808 - 2012-02-07 06:07
XSqueeze is a Squeezebox player, visualiser, and music chooser for XBMC.
For full details please see the addon's page on the XBMC Wiki.
It looks like this (although is likely to change rapidly):
and choosing from the new music list:

Cool! Waiting for this for a very long time. I will surely give it a try in the next days.

Groovy, groovy hack! I've been watching the squeeze integration threads closely and am still hoping for a full slimproto implementation but this is now, unexpected and very appreciated
I've installed and so far, no issues with the PoC (or it's installation which went smoothly) so nothing very useful to report.
XBMC Eden-pre (Beta 2) | Windows Vista | Aeon Nox Git | Maraschino Git | AWXi stable.
On a long enough timeline. The survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

Thanks for this. I will see if I can give this a run tonight on my XBMC (Linux Mint 12), and Openelec systems. I will post if anything interesting happens.

With OE you'll need to use the actual machine MAC not the default squeezeslave mac (in the add on settings)

Yep, just got OE working...using that .zip on MediaFire, install it, reboot, and check in LMS what the mac address in use is - should be the address of eth0. Put this into XSqueeze settings (and obviously also point xsqueeze at your LMS) - and it works!

Keep a copy of that file.... you never know when MediaFire may be shut down!
This is great news... any issue with the audio being tied up by squeezeslave, or are squeezeslave and XBMC playing nice together?
Can't wait to try this tonight.

Well, I have now got OE to share the mixer ok, using this info:
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?p=825708#post825708 (post 7)
(changed to 1,7 for my Shuttle XS35 GT) - and setting the xbmc audio/passthrough outputs to dmix0.
This works for almost everything, although it does seems to break the TrueHD->DTS Core mappings... all normal 5.1 tv stuff plays fine, live tv fine, and 95% of mymovies, and XSqueeze(squeezeplay). So that's a good start, just need to work out how to fix that truehd thing and do some more testing but so far so good...
BTW I am in Aus. hence the slow replies at times

(..although it can be a bit crashy exiting XSqueeze on openelec it seems, only now and then though - I don't do much cleanup on exiting yet, might be it)

Have not tried the Openelec build yet, but this works fantastic on my regular PC (Linux Mint 12). The sync between my squeezebox Boom and squeezeslave is a lot better than the sync between squeezeplay and the Boom is (That's what I am running now on a netbook).
Do we really need to have squeezeslave running the whole time? You have the IP address in the XSqueeze settings, so couldn't you call squeezeslave to run upon opening XSqueeze, and close upon exit? Theoretically, this would clear the issue you have with the TrueHD->DTS Core mappings, as you may not need to alter the asound.conf since your not sharing the audio.
