Hi,
Now that I have LMS plugin working, seems that squeezelite plugin doesnt work.
I am running volumio 1.0.5.2 on the SHD itself , and SHD is connected via LAN cable to my router where music is stored on hard-disk.

LMS says "no player found".

When i go to Volumio -> Plugins > Installed Plugins > Squeezelite -> Settings, it says: "No Configuration Available"

I also have the "Local Player" plugin (developed by Triode) enabled in LMS.

Searching in this forum seems that Christian and Juoiga manged to get it to work by some SSH tweeking. But I am having a hard time understanding what I need to do.
Can any squeezebox people help me?

Thanks.

Thanks Christian.
I actually managed to get it working without following your instructions. I just rebooted the SHD and voila Squeezelite came up and I started playing music. I dont dare turn the SHD off now!

For everyone else, I have volumio 1.0.5.2 on the SHD. You'll need to install LMS plugin + Squeezelite Plugin.
Launch LMS by opening volumio -> plugins -> installed plugins -> Logitech Media Server -> Settings (make sure both LMS andSqueezelite player is active).
In LMS go to -> Settings (lower right corner) -> Plugins tab -> and install "Local Player" plugin.
Then go back to the plugin tab, find the "Local Player" plugin, click on 'settings' on th right.
Make sure first check box is clicked and, and under "select binary" choose 'squeezelite-armv5te' (at least this what mine is set to).
You may have to reboot the SHD/Volumio once or twice for everything to work.

The features of LMS really beat any other Streaming app (if you mainly play from your own local collection). Hands down.
I really appreciate the ability to randomly play an album based on Genre.
