    I see. How would I stop playing as an alternative to pausing? Pause is the only option in Orange Squeeze. I tried long pressing pause but that did not work.

    Another thing I noticed was that when I started playing to the group when a Radio was in a paused state I had to wake the Radio by short pressing the power button before it started to play.

    Nice work. Version. 0.1.4 is much more user friendly. Groups break up on pause and reform on play. This is a very welcome addition to LMS.

    Thanks - Since I've started to create plugins for LMS, I'm amazed by how flexible it is compared to any other platform. I think it was a very well designed solution which would have deserved a much broader adoption.

    How are you creating the Virtual Player MAC address. Does this remain constant, even when off and the group is disassembled.

    Yes, it's a random number when creating the player then it will never change until user delete the Virtual Player. So it's a reliable information that the whol system can use. I've run some test with iPeng and things seems to be fine so far. I need to verify some of the behavior when a member is powered off then on in iPeng while playing, it seems that it was taking over the mastership of the group, which is problematic, bu I need to confirm

    It does seem take over the group. Powering a member off then on works okay, but playing a different track on the member player, changes the whole group.

    I've upload version 0.1.9 which contains an important fix of a problem where playback could be shutering or not start at all on high bitrate formats

    ANNOUNCE: Player Groups (alpha version)

    I'll test again but normally, when you play a new track on a member, only that member should be affected.

    [edit]: it might not work if you have another plugin that is replacing Slim::Player::Source or Slim::Player::Playlist. Unfortunately, due to an issue I discover today, the replacement of Slim::Player::Source is mandatory now. But with that constraint in mind, I re-tested and can confirm that only one group member changes track, the rest continues whatever it was playing

    One very cool feature, IMHO, I've realized with Groups is that I have a very large group (I know Michael, I have too many players ) so previously when I tried to play to all these synded together, my WiFi network would simply not keep up for large bitrate files (or spotify, seems that ogg is converted to PCM as not all players support vorbis).

    I could set bitrate of one of the members, but then this limit would apply all the time, even when it plays alone, which is not what I want. Now, because a group/virtual player is seen by LMS as a real player, I can set bitrate limit for the virtual player only and LMS will apply such limit only when playing to that group - I can now stream to a very large group if I accept to transcode to lower quality (like 128-256k) and that makes sense at it is really a consequence of the size of group.

    Happy
