    I assume the player reads ahead and attempts to cache the next queued song but do not see any way to manually download anything to the phone. A desirable feature, if feasible, could be caching an entire playlist to the phone before starting the drive. To have iPeng player work freestanding with just cached data without any connection to LMS would be ideal but I have seen posts rejecting that possibility. I'd love access to cached music with skeletal info in an "offline mode" without the full power of the database.
    Yea, that would require a completely separate player, though.
    The way iPeng playback works is that it's a player on your server setup and that means it's controlled by the server. That includes all of the streaming and if you try to stream too far ahead the server can get confused.
    That's why using the small buffer can actually give you better results if you have a decent connection.

    I assume you also did try to set the bitrate limiting for cellular to "off"? These days, bitrates usually are no longer an issue but transcoding on the server side could be.

    But on iPeng the alarm sound is not shown, and while it is easy to change this setting there is no easy way to review the current sound.

    Attachment 35575

    Would it be possible to add the title of the selected alarm sound to the top of the iPeng info screen, where the other settings are currently displayed?

    That would be a server-side change right now. This whole menu is server-generated, not created by iPeng.

    I did try both buffer sizes and and no bitrate limiting.
    Since others are able to use the iPeng player successfully over VPN, it is something peculiar to my setup.
    Since the problem is more in a moving car, it has something to do with connectivity.
    Since I have no difficulty streaming smoothly to other applications and the problem is exaggerated if a co traveler attempts a search, it suggests that iPeng player is more dependent on a consistently good two way connection and a responsive server.
    Your explanation that iPeng is controlled by the server then leads me to the conclusion that I need to improve the performance of LMS at home.
    Thank you so much for answering and keeping this wonderful system alive.
