First thing you need to do is to access the LMS web portal. Do this by going to the Snakeoil WebApp -> Software, make sure you are using Squeezelite as your player.
You should see the following, click on it to start the LMS web portal:
Go into the LMS settings by clicking the Settings button located at the lower right corner of the LMS web portal:
Now click on the Advanced tab (circled in blue), and then select “File Types” (refer to the blue arrow)
You are now in LMS’s file format configuration page, like so:
Go through all the file formats (or just the formats you need), and go through each and every text box, if you see the word native, keep it, everything else set it to disabled. Use the above graphic as a guide on how to set this up.
Once completed you’re now telling LMS to use it’s native decoder for each file type. But there’s more.

Gave it a try with LMS / Squeezelite 1.6.4. A favourite album would not play. The file type was Apple Lossless MPEG-4 in 88.2/24. Reverting settings in LMS for Apple Lossless-FLAC back to faad/sox fixed the problem. Reverting settings for MPEG-4 in LMS did not fix it and was not necessary.
I guess this means that LMS/Squeezelite cannot play Apple Lossles files natively?
SQ is great anyway.

LMS is missing decoder for playing Apple FLAC natively. Not sure what that decoder is though.
Some day I’m gonna fire up the loaned Mac from Don and get it all working.. Some day..
