    Any way of getting the Sample rate & bit depth back as variables?

    What did you use to edit? Was it a WYSISYG editor that a dummy like me could use? Could you possibly share your PC version?

    I would really like use this on a 4.3" screen HTPC running Squeezeslave.

    Thanks for any help.

          I tried this out last night and it works great on both windows and linux. The only problem I had was getting it to work with internet explorer! I use firefox so my IE was quite old and it didn't like this, it wouldn't display anything.

          Now for the big question, has anybody tried this on a web enabled photo frame? There are several 800x600 frames that can access a web page, it seems like they would be an ideal now playing display.

          Thanks,

          John S.

            It does display differently in IE and Chrome...

              Blank Display in IE

              I've only tested on IE 7 and above but believe IE 6 will work as well. When I was developing NowPlaying, I noticed that with IE I needed to bring up the web based GUI of squeezebox (or squeezecenter) in IE first and make sure the player for which I wanted the "NowPlaying" display to show selected. Then I made sure to allow IE to use scripting. After that, you should be able to open the "NowPlaying" html and it should then display everything correctly going forward without having to "reset" the browser as described above. I'm not sure if this is because of the multiple players I have in my house or if its an IE thing or a squeezejs thing.

              Also, remember, the html is optimized for a 32" wide screen TV so some modifications may be necessary for it look good on your screen.

              Thanks for trying it out. I'm glad to see so many people are enjoying it.

                  For the life of me, I can't figure out how to make this work. I've made several attempts at it the last several weeks, rechecked my settings, refreshed screens, rebooted...and all I get is the blank template, with no data. Interestingly, the clock in the corner is working...although it appears to be working off Central Standard Time instead of CDT. Neither my SB or my computer is set to CST.

                  I'm running 7.4.1 on a Vista computer hooked up to my TV. Any thoughts?
                  I’m down to one SB Touch and a Raspberry Pi. Mac Mini as a server (OS X Catalina). iPeng is my controller of choice. LMS 7.9.4. Erland’s plug ins are what keep me in the ecosystem.

                    The clock is a hard-coded applet - you need to hack the Javascript in WORDPAD slightly to change the timezone...that's easy enough.

                    You are pointing your browser at:

                    ?

                      Bingo! That worked. I was pointing to my SBS Server IP. Guess I misunderstood the instructions.

                      Thanks!

                      Also figured out I have to be running SBS on the same browser as the Now Playing screen. Firefox is my default, but this app doesn't work well with it, as previously noted. Switched over to IE and got the blank template again. Opened SBS in IE, and it worked...formatted perfectly and everything.

                      Now if I can add Trackstat ratings to the display, I'll be in "hog heaven"!

                        No, but I'd like to. Can anone recommend a suitable photo frame available in the UK? I've had a go with google but can't find anything that sprecifically mentions built in web-browsing, there are plenty with WiFi; do all WiFi photo frames automatically support web browsing?

                          How do I install this on a ReadyNAS Pro?


                          EDIT: D'Oh...yeah, I figured it out...


                          How did you do it on the ReasyNAS Pro? I can't see the folder on there. There doesn't seem to be a root drive as such, just the folders that I've created (and I haven't got anything hidden).

                            First, installed EnableRootSSH on the ReadyNAS Pro http://www.readynas.com/?page_id=608

                            Then got into the root directories using this http://winscp.net/eng/index.php

                            When you open WinSCP, Host name is your ReadyNAS Pro ip address, User name is 'root' and Password is whatever you have set it to when you access the NAS.

                              Thanks for that, now working OK. I did think I was going to have problems getting Now Playing on the screen, as all I got was a blank page, whatever I did. It took me a while to realise thst it should be a capital S in SqueezeJS as wellas the JS!. Once I realised that, everything was OK..

                                This is great, thank you.
                                However i do have a small question, on my screen, under artist it shows the composer first followed by the actual artist. Is it possible to get it to only display the album artist?
                                And if some kind person reading this could post the line that needs to be changed, as i have not got a clue what to do.

                                Russ.

                                Has anyone managed to get this to display on a wifi photo frame?
