Hello all, I live a love story with volumio and snapcast since a few months…
I even fully redeveloped an UI on the NEEO diy remote using there excellent socket.io APi and jsonrpc for snapcast.
(just to show I am not a complete noob).
BUT there is still a problem I can’t wrap my head around, it is the multi-stream multi-room.
Today I have great multi-room with one volumio and snapcast server playing to my various snapcast clients (Raspberries or old Android TV boxes) but I can play only ONE song to many endpoints, not many different songs…
My idea was to have multiple volumio instances in my various PIs and have the snapclient switch but the API doesn’t allow to do it.
Other option would be to have other mpd instances inside volumio but then, how to control these instances?
Finally a last option I can think of but going beyond my knowledge is to use lms as a server as it allows multiroom multistream apparently.
In this case, would that mean dropping volumio? Can I use it as a client?
