Hi all,

I've - finally - patched up the Magnatune plugin so that it works with current versions of SqueezeCenter. Grab it using the extension downloader, with the following repository URL:

http://magnaslim.sourceforge.net/repository.xml

In case you haven't seen this before, Magnatune is an internet-savvy record label who aren't evil. This plugin lets you play Magnatune's full-length previews through your Squeezebox.

Unfortunately it's still missing two useful features - it doesn't support the Duet's controller, and there's no support for Magnatune's subscription service. I hope to have time to put these in soon. And apologies for taking so long to get this plugin fixed!

Please let me know of any problems.

Ian

...oh, and I meant to say: the four most recently released albums (dated 1st Dec 2008) aren't working at present. Apparently these albums have accidentally got into Magnatune's catalogue too soon, so the plugin will display them even though they haven't actually been released yet. John at Magnatune assures me that this little problem will resolve itself in a few days, when they get released properly. In the meantime, treat this as a special sneak preview for Squeezebox users :)

I'm running V2R1, and have been for a while without any noticeable problem (except webUI didn't work in default skin I think).

What was broken in V2R1 that is fixed in R2?

WebUI in default skin seems to work now.

Nb. I'm currently running 7.4. The plugin has maxVersion=7.3.*, so I had to find, download and install the plugin manually. Seems to work okay at the moment in 7.4. If anyone else needs to do this, the url is http://downloads.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/magnaslim/magnaslimV2R2.zip

Well, the web UI didn't work with the default skin, and now it does :) That's the only thing I changed (apart from the maxVersion, which was also out of date, and I also set up the repository).

I haven't looked at 7.4 yet, glad to hear it works at the moment. The best place to look for downloadable versions of the plugin is probably the plugin website, http://magnaslim.sourceforge.net .

Cheers,

Ian

It does, and it's very good.

Any chance of this being updated for 7.5.x? I love Magnatune and would love to preview tracks via SB3.
