Subsonic to output to Hifi

Postby axellec » Sat Apr 16, 2022 3:47 pm

Hi !
My subsonic server is running on a Raspberry Pi 4. It works fine :) and I can play music on various devices: smartphones, laptop etc.
Now, actually the RPi4 sits just next to a HiFi device. If I connect the audio jack output of the RPi4 to the HiFi, can I output the music on the HiFi ? If so, how do I control what music to play on Subsonic?
Thanks!

Use the Jukebox mode then it all plays on the serving computer, mine links into a low power FM transmitter (car radio interface type) which nicely covers the house ;-)

Interesting, I hadn't seen that option... I'll give it a try. And so, if I understand it well, from a remote device you login with a browser on a user account set up to use jukebox mode, you select your music, and it plays on the device where the Subsonic server is (a RPi in my case).
Nice... I'll try! Thanks!

Yes that's it. Under Settings Users you can select from a tick box which Users can make use of Jukebox mode.
