SqueezeCommander 0.9.6 released

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

After a long time and a lot of hard work, SqueezeCommander 0.9.6 finally arrives on AndroidMarket and on SlideME. :-)

This version contains a lot of changes.

It has a new UI (similar to a well-known iOS app) and many new features.
You can now use Drag-And-Drop in the Playlist and the PlayerServerScreen (to sync/move players).
SqueezePlay/Jive menus do work now, i.e. most plugins will probably work.
If you enter an album, you can now select a default “playmode” (play/add/playnext) that will be used if you tap on an item.

Fix UDP broadcasts on HTC phones running stock firmware

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Unfortunately, HTC seems to have broken the /system/bin/wpa_supplicant binary in their stock 2.1 and 2.2 firmware.

Phones running this firmware will not be able to receive UDP broadcasts (sending works fine).

The issue is described on http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=8407

That makes apps that rely on UDP broadcasts, like SqueezeConfig, not working.

Fortunately, if you have root access to your phone, there is a solution!

Using a SheevaPlug as SqueezeBoxServer

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

You want to have the benefits of a local SqueezeBoxServer but avoid a high power consuming PC running 24/7?

In this case, you should take a look at the SheevaPlug embedded PC.

It’s not exactly very pretty, but it’s cheap (~100$) and it serves it purpose. It uses a 1.2GHz ARM CPU, 512MB RAM and uses as little as 2.3W (idle) to 7W (100% CPU usage).
