I have 3*RPI (with various audio cards) in different rooms all with Volumio 2.041. One machine also has minimserver installed to provide a upnp server. In addition all 3 Volumio machines mount the minimserver music filesystem as a network drive . Mostly it all works well using the Volumio via its web interface. As the Volumio UI is not easy to use on an IPhone I use the Lumin UPnP control point app on IPhone to direct minimserver to one of the RPis.
I have several questions I haven’t been able to answer.
- I have to modify the upmpdcli configuration to setup the OH productroom configuration. I don’t understand the difference between the files
I have made the changes I need by editing the same change into all three but I am sure this is the wrong approach. Please can someone explain how these files are designed to work?
I want to make each Volumio client use the minimserver as the music library ( and so avoid having to make every RPi independently rebrowse the same music update). Is this possible?
I have been trying to configure the RPi network as a multiroom play setup. I see the sc3mpd is installed as part of Volumio 2 but I have not been able to make songcast work via upmpdcli. In other threads I see the Volumio 2 project is intending to use snapcast with a release in 2017. Is this true and is there a target release for this?
Volumio is a great project - Thanks
