View Full Version : Squeezebox remote control of airport express
Hi, has anyone set up the Squeezebox to remotely control Airport Express?
Not quite sure what you mean.
Do you want to use the squeezebox' remote to control what's playing on the airport express or do you want to connect the airport express to slimserver instead of itunes?
Just be a bit more clear on what you're goal is.
Hi I want to control the selection/playing of music to the Airport Express using my Squeezebox.
Me thinks what this chap wants is to stream the music to the AE node, to the node is attached 'something' that plays the music.
This is essentially the same questions as "can I play on my PC speakers what is playing on the Squeezebox", except presumably it's on a Mac. So... No, I don't think so. But I'm not a mac user.
This *might* work if the AE node appeared to be a network MP3 player - like a Nokia770. But it isn't.
Here's a thought - within iTunes, tune in the URL to the SS instance? Like it was an internet radio station - might that work?
iTunes > advanced > Open Stream
in URL - http://127.0.0.1:9000/stream.mp3
In a few moments, the "127.0.0.1" appears in the Player drop down box in the SS web interface - select music of you choice, 'Play' and off she goes. Should work on a MAC over AE - but YMMV!
