I'm a generally very happy user of the Squeezer Android app - it does pretty much all I want except for two minor things, so I'm looking for recommendations for another Android app that does much the same as Squeezer but also provides:

1. Access to the "Other Players" plugin. (Yes, I know it's an old plugin, but I like it).
2. Ability to switch digital inputs on the Transporter.

Any suggestions?

Isn't this plugin limited to use on the old players' display? Eg. not
even available for Touch/Radio?

I don't have a Touch or Radio, so I couldn't say.

What I can say is that it works just fine on SB2, SB3, Duet, Transporter, and Squeezelite on a Raspberry Pi.
Surely it's a server-side thing and should work on any player?
I certainly didn't need to install or even configure it for any new players I add to the network.

Is it accessible from the Duet's Controller? If not, then most likely
there's no app supporting it.

While it is a server-side thing, the plugin would need to expose its
menus to the player. The way menus are created changed a lot from the
old players to the graphical devices. The old style menus can't be used
on anything but the old players.

OtherPlayers works with SqueezePlay. I've used it with iPeng for years

Yes, it works fine on the Duet Controller.
(I presume pippen's comment about Squeezeplay implies the same thing?)

Oops... sorry about the noise. I confused the plugin with some old
plugin Felix did in the SliMP3 days...
