    I checked this out and created the same "shortcut" in Mac OSx

    1. First open Apple script editor
    2. create a script with content "do shell script "/Applications/Google\\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\\ Chrome --app=http://linuxserver:9000"
    3. save script
    4. export script as program
    5. open and enjoy your app ;-)

    Can do the same on Ubuntu as follows...

    Right click on Desktop and 'Create Launcher'

    Type: Application
    Name: Open LMS
    Command: chromium-browser --app=
    Description: Open LMS as Web App

    Click on icon and change to, for example...


    1 x Touch
    1 x Radio
    1 x Boom
    1 x Intel-NUC server/squeezelite running LMS 7.91 on Windows 10
    1 X Odroid-XU4 server/squeezelite running LMS 7.91 on Ubuntu 16.04

    Beta Web App Wrapper

    Hi All,

    This thread has prompted me to develop a little VB.Net application to do what is being asked here. It uses the dotNET framework's WebBrowser control to render the pages using whichever version of Internet Explorer that happens to be installed on your system. It appears to work ok using the recently release stable v7.9.0 version of LMS until you go onto the View Albums page when all hell breaks loose (usually but not always). I don't see this behaviour when using IE11, only when using the embedded WebBrowser control. A second gotcha is that clicking the 'close' button at the bottom of the settings screen causes things to lock up so you have to close it the "normal" way by using the red X in the title bar.

    If you want to give it a go to see if you have better luck than me then the binary is downloadable from here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3F...ew?usp=sharing

    To use it, just run it with a command line argument that specifies the url. There is also a a second, optional argument to hide the status bar:
    usage: WebAppWrapper.exe url [NOTSTATUS]
    eg:  WebAppWrapper.exe ""
    or:  WebAppWrapper.exe "" NOSTATUS
    If anyone wants to see if they can work out why it crashes when viewing albums then the source code is available on request (pm me for it) but there isn't much to it really. I suspect the problem is with the WebBrowser control's internal rendering engine (which should be the same as ie11 in my case but obviously isn't!).

    When you use the built in Windows web browser, you need to control which version of IE it emulates by creating a registry setting for your app. Otherwise, it will default to a very old emulation (IE 7).
    So you would need to create a registry entry for your app at :

    Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Inte rnet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULA TION

    Create an entry [yourapp.exe] REG_DWORD 0x00002711.

    Then it will run using IE11 emulation. That should solve your problem.

    Googling FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION will give you more detail.
