OpenHomePlayer 1.0.6 Raspi

OpenHomePlayer 1.0.6 Raspi
Hi,

Just some feedback about OpenHomePlayer 1.0.6.

I've been using the Pi Headless version on a Raspi 2 and a Raspi 3.

First impressions are good, it seems stable, however there are a few issues.

Konfig 4.32.33 crashes when trying to connect to the OpenHome-Player (Konfig on Windows 7 and 10).

Some FLAC files will not play (16 bit, 44.1, 1411.2 kps), the others with the same format do play.

Strange one this, when listening to Radio (Radio2) it seems that the playback is slightly slow, the pitch of voices are also lower than expected (as if the playback has been slowed down), every few minutes the playback will jump forward missing a few seconds.

Thanks for your hard work,

Pete.

Konfig 4.32.33 on Mac 10.11.16 doesn't work - just shows 404 error.

Must be a different problem - I can't browse the web page.....Are you using the binary or did you compile it?

The port number for the config page will be different for you, it is not a fixed port but rather it seems to be selected randomly. I used UPNP Device Spy to find out the url of the config page.

Thanks for that,now I just need a Mac version of UPNP Device Spy!

PS still using your Java solution. Smile

Hopefully the Openhome Team can fix the issues I raised..

Thanks, not sure how many people are still using my JavaPlayer. The Songcast and TuneIn integration of the Openhome Player are much better than mine..

RE: OpenHomePlayer 1.0.6 Raspi
Hi there. Firstly, I'm new to this so apologies if I'm posting in the wrong place. I basically have a few questions as I think the OpenHomePlayer 1.0.6 Raspi is exactly what I'm looking for but I want to check a few things before I invest the time getting it up and running on my Raspberry Pi.

I am currently running Volumio 2 on my Raspberry Pi as an OpenHome renderer and Airplay receiver which seems very stable but does not have full OpenHome functionality (multi room) and is sluggish (probably because it's built to do lots of other things too). It was very quick and easy to get up and running with the IQAudio DAC I purchased which is why it is where I started.

I have been testing the ohPlayer on PC and MAC and have had trouble getting it to play my ALAC files. I have used wav transcoding to get round this issue but does anyone know why the ALAC's won't work natively?

So, my questions are:
1. Why won't these ALAC's play? Will they work differently in the Raspberry Pi implementation or Pete's JavaPlayer?
2. Which is more robust, this ohPlayer or Pete's JavaPlayer?
3. Does the ohPlayer have Airplay included (my partner uses this)? I believe the JavaPlayer does.
