Noob, http streaming, Musicbox stops when new piece starts

  • First, I want to give a big applause to the creator of this piece of software, it makes life so much easier!

  • I want to set up a 24 hours music playing system that plays items according to the time of day, so I am running vlc player that is streaming music via http into our local network in this way:

    C:“Program Files”\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe D:\Content\01-04h --random
    –loop :sout=#transcode{vcodec=none,acodec=mp3,ab=128,channels=2,samplerate=44100}:http{mux=ts,dst=:8080/}

  • This works fine so far, I can receive the stream on my computer with vlc player.

  • Also the Musicbox can receive the stream, but it stops (loses connection?) each time a new item is starting. I am running the Musicbox (0.5.2) as downloaded on a Raspberry Pi B using the analog output (same effect when using B+).

Can anyone help me in this please?

I think this problem is essentially - so until that gets fixed I doubt you will get this to work like you want to. Alternatively, have you tried setting the repeat option?

thank you for your answer! The repeat option was on. I will wait for the next release and try again after that.
