SqueezePlayer


Do you want to stream all your Logitech Squeezebox content directly to your Android Device? Then SqueezePlayer is your perfect match - it turns your Android phone or tablet into a SqueezeBox on its own!
You won't even need a Logitech Squeezebox to make SqueezePlayer work - just download the (free) Squeezebox-Server (see below)

★★★ Stream your Music via WiFi or Mobile Connection ★★★
Make your music free! Now you can take all your music with you - car, school, work, garden, anywhere in your house.

SqueezePlayer is able to stream your local music (see below for supported formats), internet radio stations or songs from Apps like Last.FM, Deezer or WiMP from your Squeezebox-Server directly to your mobile or tablet. (Rhapsody, Napster and Pandora NOT working right now, due to licensing issues, Spotify only works with the help of triodes plugin installed in a Squeezebox-Server).

For playback to be working via 3G you will need to open/forward port 9000 and 3483 on your router (as well as setting up a DynDNS service). As networking/streaming from your home network via internet is not straightforward, please also visit my growing tutorial: http://www.squeezeplayer.com/2011/05/how-to-connect-via-3g/

SqueezePlayer is a playback App - you won't be able to control your Squeezebox (nor itself) with it. But there are enough Apps out there being a perfect fit: OrangeSqueeze, SqueezeCommander, Squeeze Control or free alternatives like the official Logitech App, Squeezer or SqueezeDroid.
From the main screen of SqueezePlayer you can jump directly to any of these App, where you mobile will be among all other players as long as SqueezePlayer is activated.
In OrangeSqueeze this also works the other way round: it will start SqueezePlayer automatically from the players list, so here it is highly integrated.

By the way: if you have any problem with SqueezePlayer, please contact me! I'm very happy to help you sort all problems out: support(at)squeezeplayer.com

★★★ Supported Music Formats ★★★

SqueezePlayer can stream FLAC, MP3, WAV and PCM natively (i.e. these are decoded directly on your Android Device)

Your SqueezeboxServer will be able to convert other file types (Ogg, mp4) to FLAC or mp3 on the fly, so these will play as well. (You can check the settings screen of your Squeezebox Server under Advanced->File Types what other file types will be transcoded to FLAC or mp3).

Please note that the inbuilt server of the Touch will not be able to transcode as much as a real server, you will be bound to the natively support formats!

★★★ Requirements ★★★
For SqueezePlayer to work you need to set up the Logitech Squeezebox Server (recently renamed to "Logitech Media Server").
You can download it here: http://downloads.slimdevices.com/LogitechMediaServer_v7.7.1/
SqueezePlayer will also work with the integrated server of the Squeezebox Touch (but be aware, that this one cannot convert as many formats as a real server).

I test against version 7.5 - 7.7 of the server.

Recent changes:
v1.3.8
* Added support to directly start Squeeze Control
v1.3.7
* ActionBar support on newer devices
v1.3.6
* added support for the Squeezer App
v1.3.5
* When SqueezePlayer was the master in a synchronization group, hitting pause didn't work. This has been fixed.

As always: if anything is not to your expectations, drop me a note: support(at)squeezeplayer.com

I like it, 2 issues...the music stream keeps on cutting off and the album art doesn't get displayed. But if I go to use my duet, I can see the album art

Fantastic!! Outstanding app and very innovative solution!! If you have a squeezebox server and want to stream to your mobile device, this (plus the free "Squeezebox Remote" app) is by far the best solution. I've tried several dlna players none of which worked well or provided a good experience; this brings the full power of the squeezebox server. Folks, the need for both this app and the free "Squeezebox Remote" or similar program may seem confusing - but once installed the two integrate seamlessly. Think of it this way (comparing to a home theater solution like Logitech Duet): This software is the Android equivalent of the box that connects to your stereo receiver to actually play the music, and the free "Squeezebox Remote" program is like the hand-held controller used to select music or apps. So on your tablet/phone, you'll really be using the "Squeezebox Remote" app, while this program sits in the background to get the music to the device's speakers. So while it may seem weird to pay five bucks for an app you don't use directly, it basically emulates hardware that costs ten times that much. Best five bucks I've ever spent!!
