Re: omxplayer not playing audio streams

Then folk can check them out.

Hello, I wanted to ask if you can install on the Raspberry Pi 3 b + Spotify and then transferred to a music system via Aux (3.5mm jack)?
Thanks in advance
Do you want to use "Free" Spotify or "Premium" ?

For future reference: it's probably quicker to search the internet for the standard location of configuration files :mrgreen:
Top hit for 'debian sshd_config location' has the correct location

Not knowing where to look in Debian Stretch I have just run

No such file or directory
If you can point me to where it is I'll be much obliged.

Well I don't know what else to suggest. You can either make a new image (save any important stuff) or try the DNS change I suggested earlier, unless someone else comes in in with a suggestion. If you look up your router help files you should be able to find out how to change the DNS, or you can rese...

Start by clearing the browser cache.

Also web browsing on the pi can be a little slow, especially with a lot of open tabs.

picorePlayer OS running Logitechmediaserver on a rpi3B or rpi3B+ can be configured to run as a wireless AC.

There are several control apps for Android.

What do you want to connect the output to and how?

Re: Audio Stream Low Latency

@Simple

I don't know if this would work with your Ubuntu setup, but it will cost nothing to try.

It does require that you are a Spotify Premium User.

Install this

https://github.com/dtcooper/raspotify


On the pi and it should show in the Spotify Desktop as a Spotify-Connect Device.
