I'm curious how is mclient implemented - is it built on top of mp3slave ?
Also, can it synhronize with other squeezeboxes playing same stream ?
Thanks in advance,
I used slimp3slave by Paul Warren and others to start with. Then I and others have changed and added code to integrate it with MPVMC and the MediaMVP hardware.
I haven't tried to synchronize it and I am not sure if it is possible. My reasoning is that the hardware is inevitably different between the two boxes. For instance, the MediaMVP has a buffer after the mclient software buffer. We have found if we do not reset this buffer when jumping between mp3 files, the last selection continues to play for about 3 seconds. I don't know how I would check, but I would think the slimp3 boxes do not have such a large secondary buffer if they have one at all.
On the plus side, I would think MVPMC boxes would synchronize with each other.
If you find out, let us know if they can or can not synchronize with each other and with slimp3 boxes.
I have used mclient synchronised to my Squeezebox and haven't noticed any problems with it.
