    Fusion Research Ovation Music Manager?

    Curiosity (and boredom) got the best of me and I did a search for open LMS servers out on the net. It's scary how many are out there. But this one caught my eye.

    What's the story? Is this licensed? (Does it need to be?)

    No. There are search engines where you can do searches for such things, by port number or by page title. That's all I'll say.

    There's a web site for Fusion Research, plus they have a YouTube channel.

    I did some more poking around and a surprising percentage of open "Logitech Media Server" were running that version of it. It makes me wonder if the server hardware device that they sell is also functioning as a router/firewall on those networks and they leave port 9000 open by default.

    I also found another, similar altered version by a company called S1Digital. They, too, have a web site.

    Fair enough, I found the same sites. Open source software gets repurposed all the time. As long as they adhere to the terms of the agreement it's distributed under they are free to use it commercially if they choose to do so.

    On the upside, they might have a modern UI and a recent Spotify implementation that won't stop working when the older API gets pulled. I doubt they would care to share...

    You can see from the above screenshot that the Fusion Research version has no Information page in Settings, and no web interface for installing or managing plugins.

    That's not the case with the S1Digital branded server. Everything is included there, and it's using all the common plugins, including those developed by 3rd party community members.

    The website claims they do integrate all the features such as Spotify/tidal which are currently delivered by plugins. I would imagine that means the plugins exist but they disabled management of them as it's a shrink-wrapped thing.

    Or, you are looking at old hardware and they have long ago moved on to shipping something kodi based, or whatever.

    Somewhat , but main problem was that its excluded many raspi based users and other homebrewed players us normal users migth have and our phones tablets and gadgets ?
    The idea to block so that you at least have/had to own a real squeezebox at registred mysb.com sometime and then you can implement software players as you like seems fair to me , but i dont think it even got that far ??
    To much work to filter out "fair" users ?

    No one really stepped forward and said Hi we are a third party hardware vendor that used your free software projekt (OK)

    but we also abuse logiteech corps infrastructure to provide services for our users (not OK) can we continue with that ?

    many of these implemetations are old and probaly being replaced by these companies and with a declining userbase .
    Migth not be worth the effort to do anything
