From experience I have learnt that each situation has advantages and disadvantages and for a long time I have explored and tested several music server options, starting with Vortexbox, Music Player Daemon and also different operating systems, like Windows and FreeBSD.
Vortexbox Player, squeezeslave, different alsa settings hw:1,0 and plughw:1,0
It has been a confusing and enriching experience to explore and discover all the options.
Recently I took some time to build squeezeplay from the available sources at http://svn.slimdevices.com/repos/jiv...k/squeezeplay/
* This software supports 24/192k audio.
If you like to install this player, then follow these steps:
* If your Vortexbox doesn't have a monitor attached, you need to include x11vnc in step 2.
This will result in the smallest Xorg installation.Code:1: yum reinstall vortexbox 2: yum install squeezeplay-slim (or 2: yum install squeezeplay-slim x11vnc) 3: Reboot 4: Configure SqueezePlay (in front of the server or with vnc client).
I like to hear your feedback.
