    Sorry for my bad English,
    Yes, I have SB Touch and Usb Hdd plugged into the touch, and I have laptop with Squzzelite X player, and I play music with with Squeezelite X player on laptop from SB Touch with USB HDD.
    I have a problem.
    When I use Squeezlite X or different player on laptop with Material skin, Tiny LMS on the Touch is crashes after 2 min, but when I use Squeezelite X with default skin, no crashes LMS on the Touch and the touch playing as well.
    Maybe is problem with pictures of Cover, in Material skin have cover is big pictures, maybe no, i don't no.
    I factory resetting the touch.
    Every Cover.jpg is max 500x500.​

      Probably because Material skin is a plugin for LMS and the Tiny LMS on the Touch does not support any plugins. Your would be much better off running LMS on your laptop.

        Makes sense.

        Additionally, something I am experiencing when using the desktop display, the output text field for the Technical Info display in the far lower-right corner is now often truncated ending with ellipses when selecting the regular or large font size. I note that desktop Tech Info appears to have a hard limited max width of 180px despite residing in a "flex" div; I don't understand what is causing this limitation, even when there is plenty of room available for more chars? To support the large font, with source and tech info, allowing for a max size of 260 px would probably suffice.​
        I never really use tech info, so on my test 180px was enough, but I'll change this to 260px. Also, what's the point of using the large font setting on desktop browsers - using the browser's zoom is much better (IMHO)

          When I running LMS on my laptop I must plug USB HDD in laptop?
          Is it possibility play music when LMS running on laptop and USB HDD plug in SB Touch?

            A USB drive attached to a Touch is only visible to TinyLMS running on Touch ... and then that LMS can stream the contents to players.
            So LMS on a laptop cannot see the contents - and it cannot ask TinyLMS to "proxy" it.
            So you would have to move the USB drive. The obvious place is the place where LMS is running. However, if that is a laptop that you frequently move around with then it might not be convenient (or safe for the content) to also have to carry around a spinning drive.
            In that case you would need something else on your home LAN that can share out the drive using a file-sharing protocol like Microsoft SMB (Samba) or Unix/MAC NFS.
            Sometime there is a USB port on your router that can do this.

              cpd73 I have found another instance but it may be using the same code that you have already fixed. In MAI bottom of Album review section

                Thank you; I am testing the latest commits to master for these updates and looks good.

                As to why I prefer using the large font as opposed to the browser's zoom function, using desktop layout on my laptop...
                Well, I use Epiphany (laptop running Ubuntu, Gnome desktop) for LMS/Material. I created a desktop web application, which Epiphany does nicely and the result is a clean presentation of Material with no browser doohickeys; it really looks like an app. I am of the opinion that leaving the zoom at 100% and using the large font looks better than the small font and zooming the rendered page. I think the browse pane with grid view looks a lot better this way, in my opinion of course.

                I have tried a variety of other browsers: Opera, Vivaldi, Brave, Firefox, Ungoogled Chromium, but for viewing a web page coming from a server on my LAN, I finally settled on Epiphany. Note: I would not use it for viewing pages on the wild Internet, not sufficiently secure for that. Actually, now that I am thinking about this again, I might try the low-overhead Luakit as a dedicated renderer for LMS/Material ... I don't know why I never thought of trying this before.​

                  I used Epiphany like that for a while, but it always felt "slow" - and being WebKit based, it does not support the background blur that Material uses. I then started using Chromium, but each release added different issues.

                  For that reason I created Melodeon. This is a Qt app that wraps QWebView (which uses the Chromium backend) - it adds features such as server discovery, MPRIS, inhibit suspend, etc. I know you use GNOME, but it should fit in reasonably well - the only niggle might be the titlebar. Under KDE I have it reflecting the Material theme - e.g, dark titlebars for dark Material, etc. I keep meaning to see if this is also possible under GNOME, but haven't gotten round to looking into this yet..

                    Yeah, same issue - should be fixed in next release.

                      I have a problem.
                      When I use Squeezlite X or different player on laptop with Material skin, Tiny LMS on the Touch is crashes after 2 min, but when I use Squeezelite X with default skin, no crashes LMS on the Touch and the touch playing as well.
                      Maybe is problem with pictures of Cover, in Material skin have cover is big pictures, maybe no, i don't no.
                      I factory resetting the touch.
                      Every Cover.jpg is max 500x500.​
                      I fix it problem.
                      Problem why TinyLMS crashes is in Mp3Tag, to big resolution of pictures in Art work.
                      When I remove all art work, Touch work perfection.
