[PLUGIN] Music Services Shield

Tried many settings. 0-2 is just too much for a RPI 3b even with priority switched off. Now at 2-3 still without priority for 2 hours without glitches. Seems to work. Serious testing would be after my 3 weeks vacation. Thanks :+1:

Edit: priority at 80. No problems. System is fast

Thanks for the update. That’s interesting. I’m running with a Tinkerboard S with 0-2 but priority disabled.

Running at 90% priority with 1-2 now, still no problems in past 2 hours. I will test further and tell you what the sweetspot for a Pi 3b based streamer (Magna Mano Ultra MKII in my case) is.

I compared priority of 40 for mpd Vs 60, 70, 80, 99. The reason to pick 40 is that places the priority of the parent mpd tasks lower than the IO tasks, which mpd fixes at 50.

I prefer this lower priority (40)

However I prefer to leave the priority unaltered for Spotify connect
