Is there a way to get Squeezecenter to play thru my computer?

Is the a way to get a print friendly format for the displayed playlist on Squeezecenter?

Thanks in advance.

SqueezePlay (http://downloads.slimdevices.com/nightly/index.php?ver=7.5) (you might have to upgrade Squeezebox Server first), or use http://yourserver:9000/stream.mp3

There are three options for playing on a PC - these are "software" player emulators (they emulate, in some form or another, the "hardware" squeezebox players).
Squeezeplay - this emulates the newer player types (Touch, Radio, Controller) and has graphical user interface like you would see on these devices so it can be used to control your squeezeboxes, and you can enable the audio playback so it can become a player as well.
Softsqueeze - this emulates the older style players (SB3/Classic, Transporter, Boom, ...). This used to be available through the web interface to Squeezeboxserver, you'd have to search the forums to find out how to get it now, I don't recall.
Squeezeslave - this is a "gui-less" player, typically you would run it from a command tool. It's nice because it's small and doesn't require any display resources.
Not sure about printing playlists - may actually be third-party apps or other music software which could handle this better. There's something called Album Catalogue Creator which allows you to create catalog of your entire library. I haven't used it, but here's link to the related thread:

In newer version of SBS, SqueezePlay is available as a plug-in called "Community Squeezeplay." You have have to first enable "view all 3rd party plug-ins."

It is handy because if you have your server set-up for remote access, you can install this player from the WebUI...

P

you mean softsqueeze. squeezeplay one must still download from the "nightlies" section. (unless this has changed for 7.6. In 7.5, it is community softsqueeze that you can download.)

If you're using windows and music quality is an issue, you probably want squeezeslave2. Get the ASIO version and either install ASIO4ALL or buy an ASIO output device (I'm using a $30 Behringer box with good results). This keeps Windows' direct sound mixer out of your signal path.
