Just a quick followup. This is real easy to setup. I will likely add
some tweaks to get this going better:
1) Install squeezeboxserver. I have a combined FE/BE, so I put it on
that. I used the instructions here:
Specifically, I used the SqueezeServer Server RPM instructions. It
gives directions to install via Yum on Fedora.
2) Point your web browswer to host.where.server.installed port 9000
(for me: http://192.168.1.101:9000/). I don't see any reason to open
this port on my router. Doubt I will ever want to remotely control my
stereo when I am not home. ThHe first time you do this, it will run
through config options. I created an account, don't know if that is
3) Install SqueezeSlave, a non-gui emulator of the squeezebox
software. You can get it here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/softsqueeze/files/ I installed the
latest version and just downloaded the binary. I uncompressed the
tarball and copied the squeezeslave-lnx24-alsa file to /usr/bin/ and
called it squeeze.
4) Login as mythtv, execute squeeze, play music from the web interface.
It appears that you can have squeeze running at all times, so I will
probably modify my mythtv startup script to include that. If I can't,
then I will have a button call up squeeze using irexec.
I will check out SqueezePlay, the gui version, but doubt I will use
it. The whole purpose of this was to be able to control things from
It would be nice if I could get some visualizations or something. I
will check out the mythtv plugin, but for now, that seems to
complicated for me to setup.
