Last.fm & squeezecenter working again

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I am a huge fan of the slimdevices series (aquired by Logitech at some point). What it does is, it allows you to stream your music anywhere in the house with little (or bigger) boxes connected to your stereo or standalone.

Squeezecenter, the server software which provides the streams to the hardware clients has been supporting last.fm for ages, but at some point the listening feature stopped working for me. I didn't really have the time to investigate any further than upgrading all the software to the latest releases, which didn't solve the issue. Today I finally came across the solution

Settings->Player->Audio->"MP3 Streaming Method" should be set to
Proxied streaming

That did the trick for me. Finally, last.fm is playing again! I'm putting this out hoping someone else desperate to get this up and running again will find the information more easily.
