    Exclamation SqueezePlug ***closed please visit the new thread***

    *** SqueezePlug Version One is released ***

    SqueezePlug stands for "SqueezeBox-Server on a SheevaPlug!"

    SheevaPlug is a very small server, perfect for hosting your SqueezeBox-Server.

    If you like, you can download fully preconfigured images for SheevaPlug Hardware or SqueezePlugVM for a virtual SqueezeBox-Server.

    *** Visit my blog: http://squeezeplug.de ***

    Main advantages:
    - enough performace for your SqueezeBox-Server and all standard plugins
    - extremely low power consumption, only 3-5 Watt so you can leave it "always on"
    - it's cheap, the plug costs less than 100$
    - plug and forget system
    - very easy to install if you use one of my images and follow this Wiki
    - very flexible due to multiple ways of connecting your music library
    - very easy to use, maintain und update
    - it's absolutely noiseless and has no movings parts
    - it's very small
    - all software used in this project is absolutely free
    - the system is open, you can modify it as you like
    - ... and a lot more

    SqueezePlug *** Simple Systems Needs Simple Solutions ***

    This project was formerly called "SqueezeBox-Server for dummies".

    Did you check the new ESIA (Enhanced Sheevaplug Installer Application) installer? http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/in...p?topic=1400.0
    Maybe you can make a 'software package' from your images and create an even easier way to install it on the Sheeva.
    Setup: 1 Touch, 4 Booms and 1 Radio.
    Server: LMS 7.8 (DebianVM in Proxmox), Tonido for webbased playback

    It's a nice thing to watch but still seems buggy judging from the post in the thread you posted.

    The images provided on www.squeezeplug.de are the most easy way to have SBS running on a SheevaPlug at the moment. Normally you only need to flash your sdcard with the image, plug it in your Sheeva and start it. Configuration is guided then and takes one minute only!

    I just reflashed my sheeva to nand and mmc with the new installer and it works fine.

    SqueezePlugVM updated

    Hi,
    there was a little bug in the SqueezePlugVM Image I've fixed.

    If you've allready downloaded an SqueezePlugVM Image read my blog to fix the bug! http://squeezeplug.de

    And a very nice feature was added: You can now run SqueezeSlave on SqueezePlugVM to play the music directly from you server. I'll describe it the next days and put it in the wiki.

    Greetings Thomas

    Sheevaplugs and transcoding

    Will the Sheevas handle transcoding both to different formats and/or different bitrates (e.g. from 88.2 to 44.1 for a high-res file playback on a SB2)?

    Thanks, -mark

    no transcoding. The CPU lacks a floating point unit.

    I can only tell about formats I'm using on my machine. I have .m4a, .wma, .flac and obviously .mp3. All play very well from the Plug, even if you are feeding 2 boxes with different formats at the same time.
    You have to keep in mind that due to linux, faad and flac are used to transcode m4a and flac files to be played from the Plug and both work fine.

    If you have different stuff to transcode we can perhaps arrange a test for you to be sure?

    I really like the look of these plugs and am keen to get stuck in and have a play. I've already got my music files (and squeezecenter) running on a NAS, I don't want to buy a USB drive to attach to the plug, this would mean two copies of my music (about 60K tracks/370GB) so will the SheevaPlug be able to access the music files from the NAS directly - perhaps over a SAMBA share?

    Any help appreciated,

    Matt:
    sure it will! You have preconfigured access possibilities for Samba or NFS. My Music Library is stored on a NAS as well. I connect it via NFS, Samba also works great! The Combination of SqueezePlug and a NAS works great!

    If you like to see how it works, try SqueezePlugVM a virtual machine setup und working exactly like the SqueezePlug (SheevaPlug) see my blog: http://squeezeplug.de
