    Best place to download Squeezeplay?

    Can anyone recommend a version of Squeezeplay which works with Windows 10? I have an old beta version installed which often fails to refresh the "Now Playing" information, so was hoping that there was a version out there that has fixed this. I've tried downloading from the @Ralphy site, but it failed, saying that I needed authentication.
    ????

    I've tried the amd64 version for linux but it fails to run for one or more reasons on version 1006.

    1. The instructions say chmod on jive_alsa, but there's no such file - there is jive.
    2. When I run it it says it has an error loading libdirectfb-1.2.so:9 ... no such file. I seem to have version 1.7 on xubuntu 17.10.

    No matter, I'm happy to try and build myself, but where do I start? Where did the source come from?
    LMS 7.9.2 on PC, Xubuntu 18.04, FLACs 16->24 bit, 44.1->192kbps. 2 Touchs & EDO.
    LMS plugin UPnP/DLNA Bridge to MF M1 CLiC (A308CR amp & ESLs) & Marantz CR603 UPnP renderers.
    Also Minimserver & Upplay to same & to upmpdcli/mpd PC renderers.
    Squeezelite to Meridian USB Explorer DAC to PC speakers/headphones.
    Wireless Xubuntu 18.04 laptop firefox/upplay or Android 'phone with Squeeze-Commander/BubbleUPnP controls LMS/Minimserver.

    Probably because you are using the pulse audio version.

    Use squeezeplay-7.8.0-984 amd64 instead

    Thanks.

    I managed to get the pulse version to work by downloading libdirectfb-1.2.so:9 (for ubuntu 16.04), and it runs, albeit using portaudio. I'll try the non-pulse version.

    I did find an older set of source files but there were a number of compilation failures beyond my ability to fix. I'll try ralphy's.

    I got the asla version running as well.

    I tried compiling Ralphy's from github but it complains that my CPU isn't 64 bit (it is). Strange, but of no concern now I have a running version.
