They appear in the classifieds from time to time, pretty sure there's one on there now.

It's been discovered how to launch native apps from the O2 interface without needing a web server as an intermediary.

I've removed the Opera and Squeezeplay entries from /media/appshop/applications.xml and created the following entries in /openpeak/gui/o2-applications.xml
Quote:
<app static="1" id="operamobile" loc="/media/operamobile/" ext="1" standalone="1" app="/media/operamobile/start" title="Opera Mobile" icon="opera.swf"/>
<app static="1" id="squeezeplay" loc="/media/squeezingtarkan/app/squeeze/" ext="1" standalone="1" app="/media/squeezingtarkan/app/squeeze/start-squeezeplay.cgi" title="Squeeze Player" icon="sqply.swf"/>
<app static="1" id="operawidgets" loc="/media/operamobile/widgettext/" ext="1" standalone="1" app="/media/operamobile/startwidgets" title="Opera Widgets" icon="opera.swf"/>
I've also disabled mongoose webserver by commenting out the lines in /etc/init.d/rcS like so
Quote:
#cd /media/squeezingtarkan/bin
#./mongoose -root /media/squeezingtarkan -ports 11111 -cgi_env PATH=/bin:/usr/bin,HOME=/ &
You need to edit any startup scripts to include the following line

unset SDL_WINDOWID
See the original link for an example

I installed Squeezeplay over the weekend, works a treat except for the fact the server won't add any more music to my library, even though I've added it to my mp3 folder and told it to rescan. Am I missing something obvious?

Also, the Squeezeplay interface seems a bit cumbersome. I can't list the available music and choose what I want I have to search for specific things and choose that way. Is there a way to just list all the available music?

Hi

really keen to do this. How do you edit scripts and the xml files? In telnet? (if so, what are the commands)?

Sorry for all the dumb questions!

Cheers

You can edit text files with "vi" if you have telnetted in.

The vi editor has quite a steep learning curve though!

Not really, after 5 or 6 years' regular use it gets quite intuitive.

Haha......True!

I've recently started using it after a 10-15 year break. I now find myself pressing keys to do stuff that I'd forgotten all about.

Pfff, Vi's for masochists! Save yourself some pain and install SCP. Once this is done you can use WinSCP to browse the file system and edit files in a familiar text editor/notepad interface.

I've been happily using Tarkans squeezeplayer on my jogger, however now i cannot play the BBC MMS radio streams. Other mp3 streams like last fm play fine, as do other radio stations. The error I am given is that it cannot play mms files. Now, this only happens if i use the iplayer plugin, another issue I find is that if i play the BBC internet radio stations without the iplayer plug in, they are continually buffering and cutting out. Any suggestions for a solution, apart from using my DAB radio in the other room lol.

Cheers
Dan

Spotify

Spotify preview version now available for Linux

Quote:
As a preview release this version is still unsupported, but we’re running it ourselves and will try to make sure it keeps pace with its Mac and Windows siblings.
At the moment it's for Premium/Unlimited users only, and won't stream local files; but if that suits you - it may be an alternative to Wine + Win Spotify.

Hopefully future versions will be for Free users and local files will be streamable.

Just a quick update to this thread. I sold my joggler for £50 to a work colleague as I got bored with it quick, however, he has plans to fit it into his Subaru .

Some pics to give you an idea of how some people are turning it into the ultimate in-car entertainment / navigation system - he also plans connect it to the cars obd interface, add night vision web cameras to the front and back of the car etc..... :

also, there are some cool in-car custom OS's available for it:

I had this exact same problem (including the dropouts on the native joggler radio player), after several days I eventually fixed the streams within squeezeplay by a combination of opening port 1935 on my router for the joggler, then installing mplayer on my server (Mac OSx).

To partially answer my own question, there was an option for adding "Browse by Artist" and "Browse by Album" to the main screen in the settings.

I'm still having problems with it not adding music though. I copied some more over and told it to rescan and it found a couple of the albums but it just won't find any of the others, even if I tell it to delete the library and rescan everything.

I've got xbmc going on mine which is the nuts Removed the Wifi dongle inside and replaced with a 4GB USB stick - it needs a power cable anyway, so also having an ethernet cable's no bother!

I've noticed it tends to slow down/hang after a while though - anyone else see this?

Anyone got any nice skins which would be touchscreen friendly? edit - found a touch screen friendly Confluence - http://www.wuala.com/djtoll/xbmcdjto...e%20touch%20me!

Yup, which has made it pretty unusable for me.

By all accounts the CPU overheats when running anything more intensive than the standard O2 OS. This then triggers a safety mode which limits the speed of the CPU.

The only solution seems to be to take your Joggler apart and attach a proper heatsink (rather than the plastic one is comes with!). There are a few threads on the Joggler forums about doing this.

Not got round to doing it to mine yet, but do intend to.

aha! I did notive xbmc report the CPU speed as 800Mhz every now and then instead of 1.3Ghz - I assumed it was just misreporting it. I'll have a look and see what's involved.
