MonkeySqueeze Development V3.2

Post by Gingernut63 » Sun Aug 14, 2011 5:56 pm

This topic is for the development of MonkeySqueeze, a script which enables MediaMonkey to play music on a Logitech Squeezebox system via Logitech Media Server (Squeezebox Server).

MonkeySqueeze, originally called Squeezebox Controller, was written in 2007 and over the next 2 years was improved by a number of people on this site. Development tapered off after this point and eventually it was re-posted in June 2011 by mccstumble who had collated all improvements on the forum to have a working version. I then fixed broken code and added new functionality to get it to the point where it was made available on the Addon site late July 2011.

I am the project coordinator of the script, to make sure we have a direction and to keep MonkeySqueeze on track. I am relatively inexperienced in writing VBScript so I am always on the lookout for people to help. If you think you have what it takes to improve MonkeySqueeze just post in this topic.

The MonkeySqueeze Programming Honour Roll: booblers, Katteman

Below is a list of issues that need to be addressed to improve the functionality. This is not the definitive list and if you feel you can add to the script please contribute your ideas.

Major Issues:

Minor Issues:
>> Limit the number of tracks initially added when activating playlist sync to avoid long delays.
>> VBScript error 9 "m" out of range, Line 565 ( LMSpaths(m) = LMSpaths(m-1)). It occasionally occurs when adding tracks to current playlist -Drag/Drop or Auto DJ. Hard to replicate
>> When adjusting the rating of a currently playing track in MediaMonkey, the music pauses for a very short time in the Squeezebox system
>> "I find that it does not fully support Unicode. Some of my songs are named in Vietnamese, and when I play them on MediaMonkey, the playlist is not relayed to Touch. If I rename them to, say, A.flac or Try this name.mp3, it works."

Wishlist:
>> Manual/Auto Start selection on the options page.
>> CDs played in MediaMonkey do not play on the Squeezebox system via MonkeySqueeze. (Will only be able to work with a local installation of LMS e.g. c:\)
>> Connect directly to Tiny Squeezebox Server in the Squeezebox Touch.
>> Control the volume on the Squeezebox device via MonkeySqueeze via remote app?. Can now be controlled via MediaMonkey

Posting Scripts

All beta releases will be issued by myself. Contributors can post individual subroutines of working modifications or if multiple subroutines are modified then the whole script can be posted as an Alpha. Designations for full scripts are: the script being developed for the next release (V2.0.1); plus date Year/Month/Day (110622); and Alpha or Beta e.g. V2.0.1.110622Beta. To keep a linear progression of the script all code posted must include previously posted modifications.

Last 5 Beta Releases:

V3.0.1.120314Beta
- Modified options page for connection to Windows Home Server 2011 and other Windows server products

V3.1.0.150513Beta
- Addition of logging into a secure LMS/Squeezebox system. Username and password inputs added to the options page.

V3.1.0.150525Beta
- Complete redesign of the options page to reduce size for small screen use i.e. tablets
- Disable communication settings on the options page when MonkeySqueeze is enabled
- The ability to connect to one of four pre-configured SqueezeBox players each session
- Added the ability to log into a password protected LMS/Squeezebox system.
- General tidy of the script

V3.1.1.161113Beta
- Add actual player names to the drop down box on the Option page, removing Player 1, Player 2 etc...
- Display name of selected Squeezebox Player after the MonkeySqueeze Enable/Disable button on the main menu
- As an alternative idea, display name of selected Squeezebox Player on a dock-able panel accessible via "View" on the main menu. Could also be used for Squeezebox player volume control - Anyone interested doing the coding?
- General tidy of the script

V3.2.161121Beta
- Create a dockable panel for Squeezebox player control, accessible via "View" on the main menu.
- Add Squeezebox Player volume control to the dockable panel
- Player names added to dropdown box
- Add mute button to dockable panel

Current:
V3.2

Phenomenal! Did you this in the last few hours or have you mucking around with it for a while?

I'll have a play to get familiar with what you have done and I'll post my thoughts. Great work, no make that, fantastic work!

Don't worry I have some Icons I made myself for this task a while ago. If they don't work I'll PM you with my e-mail address.

I'm converting your changes to the new script. Have done the first part will get to on/off part soon. Have programmed the IP and MAC addresses on the settings page to work with your changes. Testing OK at this stage. When I've added in the on/off section I'll repost the lot so everything is current.

@booblers

Here is the up to date script combining all your changes plus the latest script version which has just been released.

I programmed in the ability to set the IP and MAC address' on the settings page. I've also deleted obsolete code and added in separators between the subroutines to make the code easier read. The last bit's for me. I find it a bit daunting seeing code all over the place.

My icons do not show (modelled on Last.FM icons) and the on/off function is a bit hit and miss for me. There is a couple of other issues but I can't remember what they are at this stage.

Well done!!

@booblers

More info.

Disabling autoplay is fine with me.

My icons are now working fine, will use yours when they are sent.

The on/off is function is misbehaving at the moment. If on/off control was active on shutdown then the icon is green on startup. However when play is activated, music plays on MediaMonkey but does not play on Squeezebox Server. Toggling the button back to green then starts music playing on Squeezebox Server. With music playing and toggling the button red, music stops on SS and continues on MM (good). Stopping MM and toggling green causes music to start playing on SS with MM stopped. Start playing on MM does nothing to SS until MM is stopped and play is pressed, music then plays on both systems

Onseek is now broken. Not a big issue I don't use it myself, will give it low priority at this stage.

Re: MonkeySqueeze Development - Beta110816

Post by Gingernut63 » Tue Aug 16, 2011 3:20 pm

For anyone wishing to try the script you do not need the icons as MonkeySqueeze will be displayed on the menu and w3Sockets is no longer required for the comms. FWD and REW (seek) still only work for mp3 files.

Booblers has also provided suggestions on how to indent the code which hopefully I have fixed in this version.

Many thanks to booblers for rewriting the code to remove the reliance on w3Sockets and taking the script to the next level by providing improved features

Re: MonkeySqueeze Development

Post by mccstumble » Wed Aug 24, 2011 7:01 pm

What a day today has been. That's the last time I update, in one go, my full Squeezebox and companion programs (ie SBS to LMS, MM Beta1.414 to 1422, Squeezeplay and last, but by no means least, the great MonkeySqueeze form a stable release to a beta.

To be honest most of the time today was spent on Logitech Media Server not starting. It turns out that the install routine doesn't clean out the previous SBS cache which then prevents LMS from starting. Odd they don't include that option in the install?? It's all working fine now.

Have been using the Beta MonkeySqueeze from the last post. Major improvements are (in no particular order), not needing W3 Sockets, no longer having autostart (it was a pain anyway), the enable/disable icons are a real bonus and easy to use with minimum of mouse clicking. Not sure at this stage, as MM has only been playing for an hour or so, but there have been no premature ending of tracks in that time (note; I use MP3 format and not FLAC or any Lossless files).

So, from someone who used the cobbled together script and who is now using the beta script a big thanks to gingernut63 and boobler for this latest beta version of MonkeySqueeze.

I'm not sure how realistic this suugestion is.........MM quite happily plays CDs. LMS has a CD Player Plugin that enables it to play CDs both in RAW format and transcoded. I wonder if it is possible that MonkeySqueeze somehow utilises the CDPlayer Plugin in LMS?

Re: MonkeySqueeze Development-Buffering Issue

Post by Gingernut63 » Thu Aug 25, 2011 5:26 am

Probably the greatest issue MonkeySqueeze faces is the buffering issue between MediaMonkey and the Squeezebox system. Solve this issue and the basic goals are achieved.

Before I go further I should state I'm writing this from a perspective of a person who is not a MediaMonkey or Squeezebox expert but a person who has a more than basic understanding of computers.

What is the problem? When MediaMonkey is linked to Squeezebox via MonkeySqueeze there is a noticeable lag in the music playing on a Squeezebox device. The lag usually ranges from 1 to 7 seconds depending on file size, type etc... When a new track starts playing on MediaMonkey the previous track can still be playing on the Squeezebox device and it will abruptly finish to be replaced by the next piece of music. This is exacerbated by tracks that have no lead out silence such as some classical, opera, progressive rock etc... any music with gap less tracks.

What is happening is a delay caused by the track being loaded by a Squeezebox device before it plays (buffering) and delays in MediaMonkey communication as it passes through various computer subsystems. The format of the track can have a significant impact on the issue; when playing mp3 tracks the lag is about 1 to 3 seconds however when playing lossless tracks such as FLAC the lag can be from 4 seconds to 10 seconds in extreme cases.

What can be done? Good question. I'm sorry to say at this stage I do not have the skills to do the advanced programming that would be required :( and hence why I'm writing this post. I have a couple of ideas but they may not be achievable or totally off track but I'll table them anyway.

1. If MonkeySqueeze could monitor the track countdown time on a squeezebox device then it could delay the next track from playing until the time falls to 0.00 seconds. A delay between tracks will possibly still occur but it is better than a track abruptly stopping

2. Introduce a synchronise function similar to the one in Squeezebox Server

If anyone has better ideas or wishes to contribute to the discussion please take the time to reply.

Latest Beta release V2.0.0.110827.

This release contains contains changes to the settings page but no changes to the operation of the script. Text gives better connection instructions.

To use this version, copy the script to Notepad and save as MonkeySqueeze.vbs to one one of the following locations:
C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto or C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto

If you use this script please report any issues on this forum. Feedback is required so we can implement changes before any official release.

Re: MonkeySqueeze Development - Beta 110831

Post by Gingernut63 » Wed Aug 31, 2011 2:34 pm

Latest Beta release V2.0.0.110831.

This release adds the ability to change the HTTP port number if Logitech Media Server (Squeezebox Server) is using a different HTTP port due to conflicts with another program. Also contains changes to the settings page.

To use this version, copy the script to Notepad and save as MonkeySqueeze.vbs to one one of the following locations:
C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto or C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto

If you use this script please report any issues on this forum. Feedback is required so we can implement changes before any official release.

Code: Select all

I am happy with the new versions. Just before the last Beta I changed my port from the Synology default 9002 to 9000 (sigh).
I also modified TrackPath to change the MediaMonkey file name to the NAS server file name, and use SqueezeCenter on the NAS.
First change backslash to forward slash.
Then change the base of the PC-based music file system to the base of the NAS music file system. In my case, change "Y:" to "/volume1/music".
Now it works on the NAS server and I don't need to change servers when I change from Squeezebox Controller to MediaMonkey and vice versa.

I hope the time lag problem can be solved, because in my system it is sometimes as large as 15 seconds. Very annoying.

Thanks for the script and all efforts,
Katteman
