Album player using old CD Cover site.

Last Updated or created 2024-03-22

In the past, I made an overview of CDs I own, and which CDs I was missing from my top artists.

Today I wanted to have a little test using above code and some additional script to get a little website which enables me to quick start playing an album using LMS.

Exporting the album database in Linux:

sqlite3 /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache/library.db ".dump albums" > /mnt/www/albums-test.dump

grep -i culture /mnt/private/albums

So, 16872 is the needed album ID.

To start playing this (adhoc), I used the below command.

curl "http://IP-OF-MY-LMS-SERVER:9000/anyurl?p0=playlistcontrol&p1=album_id:16872&p2=cmd:load&player=12:23:34:45:56:67"

Player=12:23:34:45:56:67 is the mac address from a squeezebox player.

I wrote some additional PHP code in my original CD Cover site, and got this working.

I think I will rewrite the code using python to get a more flexible generator.

Left the LMS player, right the cover website. (Clicking 3 covers to change albums)
