Different Machines For LMS and Squeezelite

From Snakeoil OS Reference
Jump to navigation Jump to search

If you're using Squeezelite with LMS, you can configure SnakeoilOS as a 2+ PC setup:

  • Machine A runs only the Logitech Media Server
  • Machine B runs only the Squeezelite client. Music is served from Machine A
  • Add Machine C, D, etc that runs only the Squeezelite client to make a true multi-room setup


The are at least two advantages of using this setup:

  • Ability to create multiple "zones" (one Squeezelite client being one zone)
  • Splitting LMS and Squeezelite into two machines may yield a sound quality improvement
