About this app

Remote control for the Squeezebox system. Control your Squeezebox players from your Android device.
This app controls Squeezebox players connected to a Logitech Media Server (Squeezebox Server) or MySqueezebox.com (including the server in the SqueezeBox Touch). Replicates almost every function of a Squeezebox Controller with an interface optimize for a touch screen.

*Screenshots do not show album covers to avoid copyright violations, the app itself will still display the album covers.

Formerly Squeeze Control.

Requirements: Logitech Media Server version 7.7 or better (tested with versions up to 7.8). A MySqueezebox.com account is required if you don't use a Squeezebox Server. You can create one from within the app or on the website. And of course Squeezebox players to control.

Features:
- Replicates almost all of the functionality of a Squeezebox Controller, including the context menus and plugin apps.
- Incremental list loading for fast navigation through the menus.
- Works with both MySqueezebox.com and Logitech Media Server (Squeezebox Server) as the music source.
- Automatic server discovery.
- Customizable backgrounds for each player.
- Works with multiple servers, players can be switched between servers.
- Mini controls in the notification area lets you control your Squeezebox even when the app is in the background.
- Song Downloading - download songs from your server to the device.
- Player Manager for easy syncing/unsyncing of players.
- Customizable Home menu.
- Chromecast support (Now Playing display only, no audio)
- Can pause music during a phone call.
- Support for device docks.
- App Widget (home screen and lock screen)
- Tablet Mode
- Wear OS support
- Can be controlled by Tasker. For more info: http://angrygoatapps.com/sqzctrl_tasker.html
- Available in English and German

Notes:
- If the app crashes on launch after an update, please delete the app's data storage.

- There is a bad tip floating around about ways to speed up the UI. It tells you to go into the Developer Options of your phone and setting Animator Duration Scale to Off. Please Do NOT do this. Doing so will prevent this app from functioning properly and possibly other apps too. Instead, try just changing it to 0.5

- This app can be quite demanding on the server compared to other controller apps and as such may not work well with a server running on a NAS. Complaints in the reviews about slowness is likely due to having the server on a NAS. This is especially true if you have a large library (more than 10000 songs)

- Use a wifi connection if possible. A mobile data connection would work if the server is setup correctly, but the performance may not be acceptable.

- When connected, this app is constantly communicating with the server. If you're using a mobile data connection, this may incur a significant data usage fee.

- Tested with the Squeezebox Receiver, Boom.

Long time user, this is the best squeezebox controller app I've tried. I use it every day on several devices. Lately a new bug: When attempting to cast the display to a chromecast device, it fails on the chromecast side with a "404 Error, Page Not Found". Any workarounds, is this a known bug? Note that the app continues to think that it is still casting until you tell it to "stop casting". thx

Fixed. I changed webhost and forgot to move over the chromecast files.
