i dont know if it’s a “plugin” or another way of implementing this feature, but for those like me who use a usb disk with music stored on it (instead of reading from a NAS or a network drive), i would like to configure spindown time, and other hdparm parameters to have my disk rest a little while i leave volumio powered on 24/7.
If possible ickStream would be nice, according to their site they support some other platforms:
Today I started off with a fork for Bluetooth A2DP streaming. While the install script seems to be pretty okay already, the actual pairing/communication is quite tricky since BlueZ5.
In addition, I still didn’t fully grasp the architecture of the plugin system. Is there any appropriate way to communicate with the other plugin devs, e.g. mailing list or something like that?
I would very much appreciate that, too. Already spent quite a while trying to get that running locally on Beta and RC1, but can’t get my drive to play without buffer underrun.
Thanks indeed for looking at that effort: hope Emixam or others may help: hopefully RC2 multiple fixes may have solved some of the reading performance issues too…
Maybe the thread could be moved to a plugin section now…
as I am almost ready to transfer to RC2 now, kudos for all the work you have put into this!
Maybe I should describe my setup before i note my suggestions: I have 2 Spots where i listen, my study with a PC-Audio, here I also manage my huge library, using Musicbee. After the music is tagged I copy it to the NAS (backup!) to our living room for general access. There Volumio is running 24/7 on a RasPi-NAS setup which is connected to the HiFi and controlled by Laptop or just Phone.
While thinking of what i really would like to see as plug-ins/features, first thing coming to my mind would be searching music by customizable filters like I do on my PC with Musicbee
Meaning i.e.Hey, it’s partytime, so please ‘show me all stuff thats genre Disco or R&B, only ratings >4’
Next thing would be a freely configurable interface with customizable views on my library. One thing i really like about my fav. mpd-client for the PC (Canata) is that you can group music fast and easy by albums/genre or whatever while viewing them in tiles and still can change the sorting a bit. Unfortunately just a bit, indeed. So, similar to the above mentioned search functions, some more stackable filters in views (group by alphabet / group by year / group by rating etc.) would make browsing a huge library so much easier.
First of all I hope I could express my thoughts well enough to get my message through and second I hope these wishes are not to preposterous (sp?) or just plainly crazy. If so forgive me please, I’m just dreaming of the perfect system
Tx again for your work, Blue
It’s interesting. Is there any opened thread about this? Are you adapting ALSA driver in order to use A2DP or are you using pulseaudio? I successfully used pulseaudio + bluez with volumio 1.55 and A2DP.
I think some hardware button plugin would be nice. Then you only have to map the buttons to volumio’s button handling.
For instance if you press next, now I would map it to mpc next and that would not work if spotify is playing. This would also make ir remotes easier to add.
Something like that? https://github.com/tomatpasser/gpio-buttons
general display plugin for diffenrent display types would be awesome
 LCD 162 and 204 (44780 driver)
 OLED Display with different controllers (SSD1322, SSD1306…)
[*] and - as mentioned before - different Touchscreens
i would love to help but i’m new to node.js but i’m a quick learner.
is the plugin api somewhere documented? all objects and so on?
and last but not least a lirc plugin: 1st-setup.nl/wordpress/poduc … or-nodejs/
also, a play/stop with NFC cards would be nice ! let’s imagine also a webUI that allows to link a specific NFC tag to a particular playlist or folder.
that involves the possibility for a plugin to add a driver for a new hardware (usb?).
Is that possible at this time ?
Volumio Share Center !!!
A plugin to allow the sharing of USB mount via smb (with read only /write option)
And a sharing via mini dlna (just enable and select folder to share)
Sounds like fun but very niche.
This would be great I think many will love it. I believe this should be behind some form of login and then add most settings behind the same wall.
