    Remote "NowPlaying" Display

    Hi Everybody

    I wanted to share with everyone my remote "NowPlaying" display. It is an html that you save on your SqueezeCenter or SqueezeBox server and point a remote PC web browser to. I originally posted this back in late 2008 on another forum when I first started developing it but I have since updated the html.

    I use it in my family room to show what's being played on my SqueezeBox 3. I bought a small PC to use as the remote PC which is hidden behind a speaker grille, which also houses my subwoofers. Visit my website at http://billandjeri.homeip.net/galler...t.aspx?aid=316

    To install, make sure you follow the included README file. Hope you enjoy it! I want to thank Michael Herger for his assistance with the squeezeJS code. The HTML credits others as well.

    Thumbs up

    Neat. I've hacked it around a bit to make it look OK on a normal PC screen without scrolling and to set the correct timezone.

    Any way of getting the Sample rate & bit depth back as variables?
    Regards
    Phil
    You want to see the signal path BEFORE it gets onto a CD/vinyl...it ain't what you'd call minimal...

    I'm glad you like it. Obviously, my code is optimized for a wide screen TV :-)

    Yes, I actually plan some big updates to include more info as well as artist biography. But, I'm not a programmer so it is taking me some time to study and learn the SqueeseJS code enough to understand how to build that functionality.

    DirecTV has a new "gadget" sidebar application thingy now - I haven't looked at the programming model or API for that but it would be kind of neat to do something like this for that...

    Question Linux file location?

    This looks like a great idea, I've been using the web interface or Moose to display on my TV, but all I want is a Now Playing screen.

    I'm running SBS on Ubuntu - anyone know where I should put the HTML file? The instructions are only for Windows.

    Thanks

    Ok, I managed to find where to put the file (/usr/share/squeezeboxserver/HTML/EN/html/squeezJS/), but it's not working for me. The instructions say it is optimised for IE so I'm not sure if it's not working because a) I'm using Ubuntu not Windows, b)I'm using Firefox not IE, c) I've done something wrong.
    It's a pity because I like the idea.

    I use Firefox on a Mac and PC and it's not an issue. Check your path. SqueezeJS has an "e" after the z and "S" is capitalized.

    i.e. this is the URL I use to hit it.
