    I have some issues testing on Windows - I'm also including an updating the cdda2wav.exe from v2 to v3 as it help some issues was found in 2020 (?)

    With the original patch, have you checked for any buildup of opml files in the playlist directory ?

    I'm also adding an "Eject" (using eject application) but for Unix only. It is a little "unreliable" as processes can be ovelapped (i.e. cdda2wav & eject) and exact outcome can depends on specific linux system & timing.
    There is no easy way to do Eject on Windows.
    Sounds great! I've never tried to build up a playlist with with CD tracks but now I tested with the patched plugin on RasPi/Linux and yes it works (no error logs)! I've built up an opml with "only tracks" from one CD and also mixed up with local and online (Spotify) libs.

    By the way, I tried to play different songs on different squeeze players from one CD in different rooms. The laser unit then has to work a lot and the DVD drive becomes noisy - but it works!

    Yes, with with freedb it's really a pity! gnudb works in other applications fine for me and good to know that you plan to update. But also MusicBrainz in the CDplayer Plugin does its job!

    You misunderstood my question. I think the original fix creates and then leaves lots of opml files - usually 2 or 3 per CD read in the LMS playlist directory. If you play a lot of CDs it will get out of control and they need to be deleted.

    Oops - sorry! Hope this time I got it right... No not at all. I just see my Spotify Playlists - and I played/read about 4 CDs (maybe it's not 'a lot of' you are talking about...)

    Not quite right.

    Although the CDplayer OPML files are saved in the playlist directory, OPML files are NOT playlists and so are not scanned by LMS and so will not show under LMS Playlist menu.

    Use your system's file manager to look at the files in the LMS Playlist directory (e.g. command line "ls -l /path/to/playlistdir/*.opml" )

    I don't stop learning about the LMS infrastructure...

    You are absolutely right - here is a screenshot of the corresponding directory link to my NAS...

    Wherever you're tidying up, might you think of the material icon (icon.svg) under Extras. That would be great

    Good. You've confirmed what I've sen - the update gets rid of any files it generates on LMS shutdown and reuses file name so there'll only be maybe 10-20 OPML files.

    Wherever you're tidying up, might you think of the material icon (icon.svg) under Extras. That would be great
    I don't understand - please explain in more details. What the CDplayer plugin does is standard - Material should pick up any icons.

    Hi, I'm talking about this:

    https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...=1#post1014795

    Currently, if enabled under Extras a 'puzzel piece' appears per default... under Home Screen items a nice default icon is chosen (2nd picture). But this is really only a minor thing.

    That is a Material issue - the plugin can't tell Material to use a particular icon,Material chooses what it wants to do with menus, placements & icons.

    As far as I understood the naming is special for Material-skin use. The main plugin icon should be a .png but named as x_svg.png. If that syntax is used for the icon name, then Material will use x.svg instead (so this x.svg has to be provided alongside the xxx_svg.png). It looks inside the .svg file and change the colors to match to the current setup.

    like @cpd73 wrote:

    'icon-id' is fine with Material. To enable mapping all Material requires is:

    Your main icon is named x_svg.png
    You have a monochrome SVG icon named x.svg in the same folder as x_svg.png
    Use x_svg.png as the app's icon


    (Obviously 'x' can be any string). When Material sees an icon named xxxx_svg.png it assumes there is a corresponding xxxx.svg icon in the same path and will use that.
