View Full Version : Stream external audio source

2008-10-26, 16:19
Hi there,

Does anyone know if it is possible to stream audio that comes in from the inputs / Mic socket on a soundcard through to the squeezebox?

I want to be able to use my squeezebox as wireless speakers for my stereo.

A question that seems to get asked here every couple of days...

You want the WaveInput plugin.

Thanks for the response

For functionality which is not on the SC spec sheet - check for 3rd party plugins - under Forum web page - Community-Plugins. Also check the Wiki for workarounds.

Specifically for WaveInput

Read the Wiki entry first as the following will not make sense otherwise.

If you want to use Line-in as source and still have own PC audio out of PC speakers, you will need to check what "device number" is assigned to Line-in (use "wavin2cmd -l") and then use the Line-In device number instead of "wavin:0" when creating your Favorites. Some PC audio hardware may not be capable of this.
