Introduction
It's been more than 3 months since the release of Blind Testing. Where has the time gone Huh? I'm not too sure myself seriously.
 
   

Anyway, HQPlayer. This update fixed up the OS and allows you to install and run the latest version of HQPlayer now. However, I am not sure if registration is working properly (I have a report that this doesn't). As I cannot test this myself, I hope I can get more people to test this and with more information, find out the problem. Maybe I'm still missing a package, not too sure at the moment. Overall the system feels even more responsible, which I hope to translate into better audio quality (we shall see).

And, I have finally fixed the Windows sharing problem (when you are trying to mount a share without a password).

In the next update (Blind Testing Update 2), I am going to concentrate on adding more MPD support - including adding the new version of MPD that supports Tidal and Qobuz, as well as the ability to choose different web clients, and finally the ability to customise the folder art.

Same old story. Please support us on Patreon if you like what we're doing (for as little as $1 USD a month):

I'm unable to start Hqplayer 3.25.1 with Blind testing 1.1.1. I'm getting these errors when trying to install:

Hmm. Interesting, seems the order of installing is random. I'd re-work the install script and see if I can make it more consistent. Will let you know once I have something ready to test.

Hopefully when you have HQPlayer installed, help me verify if the LICENSE XML file can be applied or not. There may still be a problem there. I don't really want to move to Ubuntu 18.02 LTS so early in the life cycle (that's not what the LTS is meant for).

Hi Mivera, did the install download a whole bunch of deb files prior to installing HQPlayer? I did a fresh install of 1.1.0, then update to 1.1.1 and then install HQPlayer. Everything works.

Can you try the install again, and then cut and paste the entire console output and put it here? Thanks.

I did a 1.1.0 install, then install HQPlayer, then go to 1.1.1. And curiously HQPlayer disappeared. Maybe that's the problem. Will try and find out the cause problem and release a fix for it in Update 2. Thumbs Up

Sorry posted in the other thread. Any updates on this? My HQP is broken now so my system is down unless I use Windows.

See other request for a quick fix. Also, now that you mentioned Windows, once you get HQPlayer up and running again, can you mind share your thoughts on HQPlayer's audio qualities between Windows vs Linux..

I'm trying to see if I can build a new machine (yes, with the latest modern UEFI)  and then try HQPlayer on a powerful Threadripper with NAA bridge on my PC, and hopefully running on a pure IPv6 stack. Any thoughts you have will help me design my way forward.
