Got some old hardware that is too too old and crippled to run Snakeoil ??  but you would like to use it to extend the 'Zones" ?

With Snakeoil and LMS as the server you can use this code to run a player Smile

  • RAM: 128MB  (128 MB !!! every thin client ever... )
  • CPU: 32bit or 64bit, every CPU is ok, it can run on a toaster too (No, tried the toaster... Big Grin Dodgy Rolleyes )
  • USB flash drive: 32MB (yes, old old old Wink )
  • An ethernet port
  • A monitor for first setup (optional)
  • A keyboard for first setup (optional)
  • A computer running Logitech Media Server ( Your Snakeoil !! Smile

Wow, that is a lite install! Wonder how the sound compares to something like picoreplayer? I'll definately have to try this when I get some time. I love minimalism!

That should work, unless I broke it when moving this feature to the free edition (i.e. broken for activated users). Will check soon.

Edit:
Still working AFAICT.

Yikes.!  My error...too many devices connected for testing and on 24/7 ....forgot I was running the Raspberry pi version..(RPi4 beta)  which seems only to run MPD and not LMS ??
Killed the RPi and started the x86 Snakeoil and so far so good... Big Grin
