I keep getting error -"No items found in playlist" after fetching track details...this URL works in VLC player.
    The LMS has HLS(v1.1) plugin installed and file type -ffmpeg selected. Can someone help please. Thank you.
    Off topic but your URL works for me using the plugin PlayHLS v2.2. Uninstall your version and try that. You probably need to add this repo.

    It should also work with PlayHLS v1.1 - I think there may be some other issue involved. Perhaps check version of IO::Socket::SSL and version of ffmpeg.

    tiny sc - power up/down

    I have been playing around with this, and it seems like adding a usb stick (128GB) to the touch will be perfect for my friend. It really is quite cool to discover something new on a device that is already so cool

    The one question I have, and am concerned with (because he is non techie) is the mount/dismount and power up/down.

    I understand the need to dismount, but am unclear as to what power up and down mean (as defined in the wiki). I assume that it means disconnecting and reconnecting power to the unit, and not the power button on the touch (that brings on the "power off" screensaver)?

    This assumption means you can operate the touch continuously and power it on and off through the touchscreen. But, if you need to unplug it for whatever reason - unmount the sd/usb first. Then when you repower, mount the usb, and start the lms.

    Also, for him to add music, it would be:
    1) Unmount USB,
    2) Take USB to his PC to add music
    3) Plug USB back in, follow prompts to mount.
    4) Start LMS, rescan initiates.

    Do I have this right?

    Jim

    PS - I have to admit something embarassing. I own and use 3 touches for years, and am prepping this fourth for my friend. I never knew there was a SD slot on the side. I guess I never needed to know...

    Yes, you have it about right.

    However I wouldn't get too exited about it, the Touch's server is ok if you give a player a track or an album to play and let it get on with it. If you start flicking through the menus, starting & stopping tracks, ect., the server will eventually crash, and you will need to re-scan the library, not a very good UX.

    OTOH, (not sure why I'm typing this), but did you know that any of the Squeezeboxes on your local network can play the music files on the Touch's attached USB/SD card.

    On the Touch running the server, browse to "Choose player" > select a player, go to "My Music" > "Switch Library" > select "Touch USB".

    thanks for the confirm on power, and the crash warning. Yea, I realize it's not ideal, but if you go back to my first post, its for a friend who has simple expectations, and has a difficult time grasping what is going on behind the scenes (i.e. "why do I need my laptop on?" - to run LMS). I had thought of building hime a picore with a usb HDD as a server (what I an using), but I feared him having to do anything through the ip address configuration screens, and why not save a couple $. It seems with tinysc/touch, anything I have to talk him through over the phone will be exclusively on the touch.

    If it does crash, even if he trashes the sd/usb, he can listen to mysb.com until we get things fixed. I'll have him keep a backup image of the usb on his pc.

    He has been enjoying SB exclusively with mysb.com, and now we want to add his music library, so we'll see how it goes. I do appreciate the note that you can access the sd/usb with other players, but this will be one player only.

    One thing I was looking for, haven't found via search yet, I saw a reference to samba transfer of files to the sd/usb on the touch, but I haven't yet found how to initiate it on the touch side of things. It would be nice if he could add new music via samba rather than unplug/plug.

    However, it might make it less stable (less memory spare to do things like play music)

    TinySC - Favorites?

    thanks, read the thread, and agree. I'll have him remove the usb stick to add music, which will be very infrequently.

    The other thing with TinySC (sorry) is favorites. I know with normal LMS there is a favorites.opml file that I can backup/copy over, even edit, but I don't see anything in the squeezebox folder on the TinySC USB/SD. I was hoping maybe to copy over my favorites.opml (which are an organized structure of radio stations) for his use. It also got me thinking of how, with TinySC, you can organize favorites, add folders, etc. With full LMS I would go into the LMS control/configuration page on the server's ip address. Is there something similar for tinysc or, is it limited in terms of favorites? Similar to mysb.com (can add to as list and that's all)?
