View Full Version : SqueezeNetwork ambient sounds in SlimServer?

OK, this is a bit of a silly request, but I'm
using an SB2 as an alarm clock, see

http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=20518

The SlimServer alarm function is much more
powerful and flexible than the SqueezeNetwork
alarm function, allowing a different alarm time
each day, disabling of alarms on certain days, and
a different alarm playlist each day.

There is, however, one thing SqueezeNetwork has
that SlimServer doesn't: the ambient sounds.

I really would like to use them. They have a nice
predictable loudness and I could choose a
different one each day which I could get used to
after a while - so I'd know immediately when it's
Friday. :-)

Is there any way to get these sounds into
SlimServer? The only thing I can think of is,
does anyone have the exact URLs for them? You
could put them in individual playlists then.

It would be really nice if there would be a
downloadable package with the actual files in
them, but I'll take what I can get.

I know this is a trivial question, but I figured I
might as well ask. I could put it as an
enhancement request if the community feels this
might be of some benefit.

Thanks.

There is an open request to add the missing features to the SQN alarm.
Natural sounds might be locked into SQN by licensing, so hard to guess
what could be done in that direction.
