Has anyone succeeded in making this thing work with Squeezebox. What do you have to do? I've managed to make it find my squeezeboxes, it will load a music file, but so far it won't play.

works for me. streaming from my windows laptop (running SWYH) to my LMS server (a linux vortexbox). Lots of different players (see sig). was simple to setup and then simply create a URL for a favorite in LMS to play the stream. In the settings, I had to set the use specific HTTP port to: 5901

I have had it working. Its OK but of course Windows only and means you need a machine on and the ability to control it.

On a similar theme I have built a Pi3 with USB soundcard that takes the output of my Hi-Fi amp and streams it as FLAC which LMS can tune in to - I can stream Vinyl, Cassettes etc and literally anything that I can plug into my Amp which could include an Amazon tablet etc etc

Not my work but here is a How To
