Nice app, thank you! Was actually surpriced to find it :)

If you could add the password protection option to settings at some point, it would be greatly appriciated. Meaning the option that you can use for LMS to protect it with a password.

Works like a charm. Thank you for your efforts bringing such an app to SailfishOS.

This is a great Squeezebox app, thanks. I've used varous mobile apps on WebOS, Android and iOS and this is one of the best, maybe the best.

Thanks for this very nice application. Do you plan releasing it as open source?

I'm working on a Dashing widget to get information out of the Squeezebox server. Are you also using the CLI on port 9090? Or how do you access the API?

fholmer's picture

I use the jsonrpc at port 9000, the url is "serverip:9000/jsonrpc.js". The command and response is same as cli, but they are wrapped into json objects. I will release the app as open source soon.

Thanks for nice work.Enjoyed all weekend your app.Works just fine

In the lates update (0.4-4) I attepmpt to preload items in large lists. This works fine on my server, but I only have 300 artists in the collection. If this new solution causes problems on larger collections, I will revert to the previous solution and find another way. I appreciate all feedback :)

Doesn't seem to make a huge difference with arount 1500 artists, maybe a litte snappier than before, but I was already quite happy with the speed. So far no negative side effects, but I'll keep my eyes open the coming days.

kihi's picture

Wow that's quick, thanks!

[Edit] I've noticed that it now takes a bit more (a couple of seconds) time to load the menu items, not a huge deal, but before they appeared pretty much instantaneous I think.

fholmer's picture

Thanks for your feedback! Random Mix is missing but it will be back in next update. Hopefully this weekend :)

kihi's picture

One other thing that I came across today: I don't seem to have an option to play a 'random mix' in the music library menu. Is this correct and/or normal?

fholmer's picture

Thanks for your feedback! I'm working on it :). If the application can not automatically discover the Squeezebox Server then you should be able to add the server address manually. This will be implemented in the next update.

the app does not load for me.
Only shows the "loading circle" Animation forever.

Population of the artist list takes about 6-7 seconds for me, doesn't bother me much, though more snappyness is always welcome. Maybe the 'Show music library' menu could be tidied up a bit, music options are mixed with apps and system-related entries now, but I don't know how easy or hard that is.

Also, from an aesthetic point of view I would prefer the cover art on the app cover to be a little smaller to blend in with other apps, or better still, be streched all over as in the Sailfish media app. This is a matter of taste though.

Finally, if I connect and no Squeezebox devices the app shows only a (static) loading circle. Maybe a message could pop up if no devices are within reach? Other than that no complaints, keep the updates coming!

I have the same experience on the album list and artists list. It locks up for 2-4 seconds. I have a new update ready soon. Automatically open last used player is also ready soon :)

Done some testing (Duo and Radio). The huge lags (locks) where there only the first time I used the app after the update. There is still some lags (locks) depending on how large the loading list is (around 4 sec when loading Music Folder, 2 sec when loading Albums, no lock when loading My Apps or Internet Radio). It seems to me that there were no lags at all before this last update.

Is it possible when opening the app to display automatically the player that was last in use when the app was closed?

kihi's picture

So far no lag problems here, Classic and Radio respond to commands as snappy as in the earlier version. Will test some more.

Neo's picture

Thanks for album art and song title. Works fine. The app does not work fluently as before. Huge lags when you give a command. Maybe it has to do with the removal of item limitation in this latest update?

fholmer's picture

Thank you for your feedback. Album art and song title is added today. I am still working on a list view for large library. But until this is finished, I have removed the item limit. The application may lock in a few seconds when loading large lists :)

kihi's picture

This is great, thanks! Is there a limit on artists shown? I have a very large library and the app will only show artists starting with 01 to AN, the rest of the alphabet is only available by searching.

I understand it will take a lot of time to populate a list with about 3000 artists, but maybe an option to choose the fist letter of artist or album name could be implemented?

Neo's picture

Works fine. Thank you very much for this app. Could the current song with album art be displayed on the cover app (when app is minimized to homescreen)?
