    [Announce] Squeezelite-X

    Squeezelite-X is available in the Microsoft Store for Windows 10 (Version 1703+).

    Squeezelite-X is a Windows 10 application that makes running Squeezelite on your PC easy. Squeezelite-X combines the excellent squeezelite software player (by Adrian Smith and Ralph Irving) with a dedicated imbedded web interface to your Logitech Media Server, all accessible from the windows tray.

    Additional features include: WOL to wake your server, interactively change output devices, ability to specify advances squeezelite parameters, customizable tray icon menu, sleep/idle auto off timers, media key support for your keyboard, custom browser zoom. The application is multi-monitor Dpi aware as well.

    This started as a DIY project for me several months ago, and was developed with advice and support from forum members over in the DIY area. Special thanks to Wirruna, oyvindo, Jeff07971, drmatt, bobbertuk and others for advice and suggestions and testing (and most importantly, encouragement).

    Special thanks to Adrian Smith and Ralph Irving for writing squeezelite, to mherger for all his excellent work on LMS and Spotty, and to all who keep this technology alive. This is my humble gift back to the community that has given joy over the years.

    Hi Greg,
    I noted today that the local SL-X player name appears 3 times in the "Choose Player" pulldown list (and also on the LMS settings page under "Players). Each consecutive name has a trailing increasing number (2), (3), (4) and so on.
    I suspect that this is a result from sudden crashes I've had with SL-X (as I mentioned earlier).
    Question is; How do I clean this up?
    Restarting LMS or SL-X does not help.

    Squeezelite-X will generate a unique Player Name if it is about to start squeezelite-win.exe and the LMS server says it already has a Player connected using that name. This is so that if you are running multiple instances, whether on multiple PCs, or multiple users on the same machine and the PlayerName was not unique, it will make it unique.

    However, If Squeezelite-X terminated abnormally it could have left an instance of squeezelite-win.exe running in the background. So yes, this could be a result of a crash. Version 1.2 added code that eliminated the issue we (well at least I) was having with wifi. Are you running Version 1.2? V1.2 is in the store now and you can update to that (even though the store listing has not yet been updated by Microsoft to indicate Version 1.2 yet, the v1.2 package is what is there).

    I also noticed this happening (squeezelite-win.exe left running) once when I was shutting down Windows and the shutdown process got aborted due to another program. In that case Squeezelite-X was shutdown, but squeezelite-win.exe was not. I have a fix for this coming.

    A reboot of the PC should fix the issue because that will shut down any squeezelite-win.exe instances that may be running, or you can go into task manager and terminate the tasks there. (If you do Task Manager, Exit Squeezelite-X first, so you can safely terminate all remaining squeezelite-win.exe instances) BTW, if squeezelite-win.exe terminates abnormally, it may take LMS several minutes to realize and "forget" the player.

    What version of Squeezelite-X are you running?

    Hi Greg,

    I have just noticed that my request for squeezelite to be disableable has been implemented - thanks for that !

    I noticed it after checking the version (re the last post) I am on v1.2 but I do not remember updating SL-X, does it auto update ?

    Thanks again

    Jeff

    Want a webapp ? Get SqueezeLite-X ! https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...l=1#post903953

    I'm now on 1.2.0.0 and everything is just fine again.
    Perhaps with the exception of the fact that not all my keyboard mediakeys do work as expected. But they used to - some time ago. Now, only the Play/Pause/FastForward/Reverse works ok, but the volume keys and mute doesn't. They used to work with SL-X as well, but now they only control the local player, and not the browser selected player, no matter what I do.

    I'd prefer to stick with a standalone installer myself.

    Thanks Greg. Updated my Win 8.1 this morning.

    This is a great app. Well done.
