Hi,

I have written a web application which allows a Networked Media Tank to browse your music library and control (rudimetary play commands) the squeezebox/transporter etc

Original NMT thread:

As someone who's just this week picked up an NMT (the iStar HD) will this work on that device? My understanding is the firmware is pretty much the same across all NMT's so I'll certainly give it a go.

Yes it should work on all NMT's (fingers crossed :-) ) I have edited my link in the first post so it should work now.

New version SqueezeNMT v0.4

SqueezeNMT v0.4
- Amazon cover art download included if no cover exists
- Bug fixed when last genre of page selected in combo skin and the wrong genre page is shown.

The download size has increased due to the inclusion of the amazon code and if you use amazon cover art downloader then you need to download also the endorsed jaxb libraries rar and put them in jetty or tomcat.

Extra installation instructions can be found at the project web site.

I don't have a web servlet running or a disk in my Popcorn hour so I'm unable to try this just yet but it sounds great!

Would I be able to just use this as a 'now playing' screen for one of my players? If so what would it display - I had a look though the screen shots but didn't find anything that looked like a now playing screen.

Hi,

I don't think you need an internal disk to add a url in the web services, correct me if I am wrong as I do have but NTFS formatted so don't have apps installed either and it works fine. You do however have to add a java web application server, jetty or tomcat to the same pc or NAS that you are running squeezecentre from.

I haven't added the now playing screen yet but will be doing some development hopefully this afternoon so may have time to add it, though am concentrating on an artist menu first. The html needs to be very basic so I am guessing the first draft may be no cover art but a long list of songs that are in the current playlist. Alternatively I could show very small cover art next to each song but am doubting if that would look any good on the tv. I am open to suggestions :-)

Update
======

I have already released v0.5 which is available at the google code project site and includes a new artist menu.

This weekend I will hopefully release v0.6 which includes a now playing screen that includes a list of the songs in the current now playing playlist (split into pages of 30 items) and highlights the currently playing song. Additionally it allows you to save the current playlist as a real playlist for future use.

It should also include a playlists menu to browse playlists.
