    Beta: SqueezeConfig - UDAP Config tool for Android

    I'm currently working on a new Android App that allows configuring your SqueezeBoxes via your Android Mobile.

    It's already working pretty well, but I need some beta testers.

    What does already work for me:
    - Configure UDAP SqueezeBoxes (Receiver, SB3, Boom, Transporter)
    - Copy configuration from one UDAP SB to another (i.e. you can configure one SB and copy the config to n other SBs)
    - Autoconfigure UDAP SqueezeBoxes by using the WLAN values from Android
    - Find "new generation" devices (Radio/Touch...)
    - Show info of "new gen" devices
    - Reboot "new gen" devices

    What does not work, yet:
    - Configure "new gen" devices
    - Menu options (e.g. Help...)
    - Probably something else that I forgot right now ;-)

    Prerequisites:
    - The UDAP SqueezeBoxes MUST be connected to wired LAN and reachable via WLAN through your WLAN router (i.e. the router MUST NOT filter the (broadcast) traffic from your Android Mobile to your SB)
    - If the UDAP SB is already configured for WLAN but currently not connected to a server, you can also reach it via WLAN (i.e. no LAN connection needed)
    - For the "new generation" SqueezeBoxes, you need to enable "Remote Access/SSH" (Settings / Advanced / Remote Access)

    Caveats:
    - It may take up to one minute until "new generation" SBs are found, because I cannot actively discover them

    Credits:
    Apparently, SqueezeConfig is heavily inspired by Net::UDAP.
    Without it, I probably wouldn't have bought a Receiver in the first place. :-)

    Download location:
    You can download SqueezeConfig from my server:

    Have fun!

    Well, a plugin is impossible for me, because I'm lacking Perl skills for that.

    A Java desktop port may be possible, but for that we have Net::UDAP... That should be sufficient, isn't it?
    Ok, Net::UDAP has no GUI, but it's also not sooo difficult...

    Well, first of all, I'll try to complete the Android version. Maybe I will create a desktop port later...

    Squeeze Config

    Flattermann,

    My compliments on the SqueezeCommander, I picked it up from the Market. It's working great, sees and controls; a Duet, Controller and two Radios. Very happy with the program. If SqueezeConfig is anything like Commander, count me in!!

    Thanks

    Hi, Bill,

    Thanks!

    In the mid term, I'd like to implement (at least) some features of SqueezeConfig into SqueezeCommander, e.g. to catch lost player (=not connected to any server). For the receiver, this is when the LED stays blue.

    But for now, I'm keeping SqueezeConfig as a separate App for the sake of simplicity.

    At the moment, I'd appreciate anyone testing SqueezeConfig, so if you like - just drop me a line (android AT flattermann DOT net).

    For your information:

    SqueezeConfig also works under Android x86 LiveCD!

    I've just installed Android-x86 in a VirtualBox and it runs pretty well.

    See http://www.android-x86.org/ for details.

    Here's a screenshot of SqueezeConfig on Android-x86:



    BTW: SqueezeCommander also runs in Android-x86!
    I think I should also create to a special tablet version of SqueezeCommander, probably some manufacturers will release some x86-Android-tablets in the future...

    Here's a screenshot of SqueezeCommander on Android-x86: (Browsing Napster)

    Beta Squeeze Config

    Hi, is the utility able to configure the Squeezebox Classic 3 ? If so I'd be very interested in trialling it.

    I've started using Squeeze Commander and first impressions are that it's very good.

    My equipment is Netgear ReadyNAS Duo running Squeezebox Server 7.50, Squeezebox Classic 3 and HTC Desire.

    Yes, SqueezeConfig can configure all ip3k/UDAP devices, i.e. SB3/Boom/Receiver/Transporter.

    To use SqueezeConfig with a SB3, do this:

    - Connect the SB3 via wired LAN
    - Reset the SB3 (Hold "Add" while powering on the SB3)

    The SB3 should now be found by SqueezeConfig.

    To get SqueezeConfig, please register in the tracker at
    http://www.squeezecommander.com/trac

    and tell me your trac username through email:
    android AT flattermann DOT net

    SqueezeConfig is in Open Beta now.

    Anyone who wants to try it, please register in the tracker at
    http://www.squeezecommander.com/trac

    As a registered user, you can download SqueezeConfig from
    http://www.squeezecommander.com/trac/SqueezeConfig
    (using your Trac username/password).

    NOTE:
    =====
    Because of a bug in the HTC firmware 2.1 (and probably 2.2), SqueezeConfig does not work on HTC devices with these Android versions.
    See http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=8407 for details.
    If you have root access to your phone, you can fix this issue on your own by replacing the file /system/bin/wpa_supplicant (see the ticket for details).
