Hi JLT

Usually this is the easy part of the setup.

In your browser go to; LMS > Settings > Information Tab and also open the MonkeySqueeze options page; MediaMonkey > Tools > Options > MonkeySqueeze.
Compare the IP Address and HTTP Port No.on each page They should be exactly the same values - IP Address:192.168.0.19 and HTTP Port No.: 9002. Please note that Synology units use port 9000 for another application so that is why the Port No. is 9002 for LMS.

Also you can try the LMS Hostname in place of the IP Address, this will sometimes work where the address does not. This depends on your network setup.

Read through the User Guide for further hints.

Let me know how you get on. :)

Hello Gingernut63 (and others on this forum)

I'm new here, trying to install and run MonkeySqueeze, and running into trouble early on with the Comms test between MediaMonkey and my LMS server......

Here's my setup:
- Windows 8.1 PC (firewall deactivated while installing/testing)
- LMS 7.9 on Synology NAS (no password protection - static local IP address 192.168.0.19:9002
- Monkey Media 4.1.23 (running in admin mode) - music library correctly scanned and displayed - great piece of software :-)
- MonkeySqueeze 3.3 (looks great, alas can't pass the first hurde.....)
- PC and NAS on Linksys basic ethernet switch, router access thru powerline adapters

Here's my issue: when clicking the "test comms" button in Monkey Squeeze, I immediately get a "comms not working" message - "testing" message while polling and waiting......

How do I make this work ? Is it a version mismatch issue, a networking issue ? I've uninstalled and reinstalled everything, to no avail (incidentally, I could not do a "clean" uninstall of MonkeySqueeze as my parameters (IP and port #, MAC addresses etc. seemed to still be there after uninstall)

Than you so much for your help !

JLT

This is the first time I installed MS or any add-on.

Apologies. Didn't realize I needed to setup the options before enabling MS. I no longer get the error. Now I just need to figure out how to get it to play music :roll: :oops:

Any Ideas?
I'm running 1853 and having no issues. Uninstall/reinstall Monkeysqueeze and see if that helps. Also reboot PC, hold tongue on left side of mouth etc... :wink:

Have you used Monkeysqueeze before and had it working?

Hi GingerNut,

My major need for MonkeySqueeze was to be able to view and select "songs" to play via the SqueezeBox over the HiFi system.

My music collection consists of about 4000 FLAC "songs" with messed up metadata. Titles, artists, albums, composers all being mixed up, it was just painful to set up a playlist using the LMS interface.

MediaMonkey allowed me to reorganise this metadata quite efficiently without having to do so file by file. MS saves these modifications in a cache file somewhere but I could not find a way to backward covert the original FLAC files. Hence my interest in MonkeySqueeze which would obviate this need.

MS not working with SqueezeBox Classic, I looked further and then found that MM Gold does allow to backward synchronize the metadata so I upgraded and now have a well organised collection -problem solved.

This being said, the Raspberry Pi suggestion sounds intriguing and I may look at that one day, but that would be another story.

Bye for now.

After doing some more research I've found that the Squeezebox Boom is based on the same architecture as the Classic. The Boom works with MonkeySqueeze, so there may be hope yet, although the signs aren't promising. It's a pity I don't have a Classic available to test. :(

There are now numerous 3rd party options to use as Squeezebox players, some providing the best digital audio conversion available. Have you thought of using a Raspberry Pi and a third party DAC? This is a low cost solution to link the Squeezebox system with your HiFi. This (headless) unit is easy to configure and is similar to a Duet with potentially a better DAC (depending on your choice). Links below, however a quick Internet search will reveal a lot more.

Hi,
I installed SqeezePlay but, using the SqeezeBox Classic, it only worked between my basic music folder and SMP but I could not get it to connect to MM via MediaSqueeze .

Bearing in mind your remarks I then tried to connect onto a SqueezBox Radio and that did communicate with MediaMonkey via MediaSqueeze.

So your assumption that it is a handshaking problem seems to be validated. It remains a pity that I cannot access my MediaMonkey music library with the SqueezeBox Classic and play it through my HiFi system.

Thanks anyway for your input.

I tried to reinstall MonkeySqueeze but still got the same error messages.
LMS is installed on the same computer as MM...

Any ideas?

This appears to be a handshake issue, the Squeezebox Classic may not work with MonkeySqueeze. :(

To confirm, install the software based player SqueezePlay (link below) on the PC, and then run and link it to the LMS music library. Go to LMS Web Page > Settings > Information and place the SqueezePlay MAC Address in the MediaMonkey > Options > MonkeySqueeze > Squeezebox Player Settings (Player 2?). Select the player, and then enable MonkeySqueeze and see what happens... :-?

If SqueezePlay connects and plays music then the Classic will not work with MonkeySqueeze. If the same issues occur with SqueezePlay then we have other issues to address.

Have fun
