An easy way to control the other players in your house and to transfer playlists between them.
This plugin provides a new menu on your Squeezebox/Squeezebox Controller, called Other Players. It lets you select any of the other players that are connected to your Squeezebox Server and provides ways of controlling them. You can currently do the following:
You must have more than one player connected to your Squeezebox Server in order to use this plugin! Once this plugin has been installed, a menu called OtherPlayers should appear in the Extras menu on your player. This menu will list the other players connected to your Squeezebox Server. Select the player that you want to control and go right. The rest should be self-explanatory. This plugin is not designed to be used from the Squeezebox Server web interface, although a settings page will be provided there in the future.
Although you could continue to access this plugin from the Extras menu, it has been designed to be added to your HOME menu for quick access. To do this, go to Settings in the Squeezebox Server web interface and then in the player settings for each player select Menus. Under ‘Inactive menu items’, select ‘Other Players’ and click the Add button. The Other Players menu will now be added to the bottom of the HOME menu - you can move it up to a different position using the Up arrow to the right of the menu name.
