    Hi

    I've been using your plugins for a while now, with your GlobalPlayer the one I use most. I've been trying to hunt down a problem I have with my LMS system in that it slowly grinds to a halt in response to mouse clicks etc. Upon rebooting my server, I am asked to login to mysqueezebox.com and redefine the location of my music and playlist files. Thinking it was a hardware problem, I built a new server on an RPi4 (was using a Dell 3040) but ended up with the same problem.

    After a bit of digging around, I found that the 'server.log' file was absolutely huge, populated mostly as below:

    Code:

    ​
    The above is but a small excerpt. Any suggestion as to the issue, or the next step in finding the source of the problem?

    Thanks
    I've found a problem when a live programme is restarted from pause, which I think is causing your problem, please can you try version 2.2.1.

        Have updated and will watch the server.log file over the next few days. Thanks for your plugins and your support!

          Yesterday, I noticed I couldn't play any channels through the plugin - oddly, it would seem to get the channel metadata - i.e. the image updated - but it just sat at "connecting". Same thing this morning, but now after hitting play/pause/play a few times, it's playing again. When it's not working, I see

          Code:
          [23-03-21 11:53:30.5504] Plugins::GlobalPlayerUK::ProtocolHandler::__ANON__ (713) Failed to stream
          in server.log. Server is latest 8.3.2.

            I am also seeing this. I'll see if I can work out what's changed and implement a fix....

              It looks like Global are having streaming problems. However, the plugin handles it particularly badly and gives up at the first hiccup. I've implemented a fix that does the appropriate retries.

                    Hi,

                    I've been enjoying the Global Player plugin, mostly for ClassicFM & LBC but recently (yesterday?) it has stopped playing any station. I'm not certain but it looks like Global now require you to create an account and login (similar to BBC Sounds & Bauer Radio) but the plugin doesn't have that feature. I'm using v2.2.2
                    1xRadio, 2xReceiver, 2xController, 1xSB3, 1xSqueezeLite (on Rpi3/Jessie), SBS 7.9.2 (on Rpi3/Jessie)
                    Creator of SqueezeIR applet for the Controller.
                    Creator of LineInButton applet for the Radio.

                        Weirdly it has just started working again. I didn't do anything so I'm blaming the interweb!

                            I know this could be the same streaming problem at the globalplayer side, but all globalplayer channels stopped working for me yesterday evening on 2.2.3. Log is ..

                              Is it still not working? I just tried Capital and that was OK.

                                Yep - still not working. Was fine until yesterday evening I think, but no globalplayer channels working this morning. Everything else is fine. I'm on LMS Version: 8.3.2 - 1679892799 on DietPi, which seems to be the latest 8.3 version.
