    Squeezelite/Picoreplayer: Is it possible to show the IP address of the Squeezebox?

    Squeezelite/Picoreplayer: Is it possible to show the IP address of the LMS or Squeezebox via plugin on the player?

    Hi all,

    background of my question is: I want to send a ready made Picoreplayer on a Raspberry Pi with touch to a friend. But she is not so familiar with the techniques behind. It would be nice if she could figure out the ip address via GUI in Jivelite on the Picoreplayer to access the browser app of piCorePlayer or LMS (samer Pi)...

    Any GUI possibility to achieve this is welcome! Is there maybe a LMS plugin available?

    BR

    I have not checked to see if it appears somewhere in Jivelite settings or Advanced but ... if your friend is using a modern operating system then it might be accessible as http://pcp.local ... the "pcp" bit is the hostname and you can change it via pCP Tweaks page (at the top).

    Einstellungen/Erweitert/Informationen zur Squeezebox/Informationen zu XYZ

    Settings/Advanced/Information about Squeezebox/Information about XYZ

    Not the shortest way. But it's there. And then it should be visible as
    picoreplayer.local in your browser, too.

    Thanks u2!

    Is it possible to set up ssid and wpa-psk password by Jivelite settings as well?

    Is there Any plugin or could it technically be easily created, if not?

    It's not possible using the Jivelite interface.

    But maybe this - https://docs.picoreplayer.org/how-to...hout_ethernet/

    Couple of things ...

    On a Joggler running its modified version of Jivelite you can configure the WiFi details for the host system.
    Clearly that is specific to the way that the Joggler stuff is set-up but it could probably be ported over to pCP.

    However, if you know what the WiFi details will be for the remote destination then you can preconfigure pCP to have that information so that it works when it arrives there.
    See https://docs.picoreplayer.org/how-to...hout_ethernet/

    Edit:
    Just spotted that we both put in the same link

    Thank you two! This possiblility I already knew! It should be a surprise present so asking for ssid and password is probably not a good idea to wake sleeping dogs ;-):..

    @Paul
    But may I ask you a different question? What exactly is a Joggler, and where can I get the infos on the special Jivelite implementation?

    I guess, I have to talk to this Joggler developer, how it was implemented into the system! I hope it is linux/unix based at least :-)...

    The original Squeezeplay based device (Touch, Radio, Controller) did have network configuration in the menu. But the stripped down Jivelite probably doesn't, as it needs reaching out to the OS. And Jivelite is held platform agnostic. Therefore somebody would have to implement this for pCP specifically. It's certainly not impossible, but might be a bit of work. A good starting point might be the piCorePlayer Applet: https://github.com/ralph-irving/tcz-...ayerApplet.lua
