Hi all. I have a new version ready… get it from the Downloads section. It is piCorePlayer 1.11.

Something like And then it should be fairly simple to change the settings of your player.

piCorePlayer 1.10

pCP Team 4 January 2014

piCorePlayer 1.10 is ready. Hi all, I’m happy to announce a new version of piCorePlayer, which is a major improvement over previous versions. It is build on cutting edge linux kernel 3.12.6 which have support for I2S-connections. That means that you will be able to let the DAC communicate directly with the Raspberry Pi. There are already a few I2S DACs available, however at the moment piCorePlayer only support the HiFiBerryDAC, you can read more about HiFiBerry.

piCorePlayer 1.09

pCP Team 21 November 2013

piCorePlayer 1.09 is ready. IMPORTANT (22 November 2013)The first version of piCorePlayer 1.09 was corrupted - please download again. Changes Thanks to Ralphy you can now play WMA ald ALAC audio files, and possibly do upsampling on piCorePlayer as well. libfaad, libffmpeg and libsoxr are now included and enabled together with Ralphy’s Squeezelite which is compiled with support of upsampling using the libsoxr resampling library. This allows Squeezelite to upsample the output to the highest sample rate supported by the output device.

piCorePlayer 1.08

pCP Team 11 November 2013

piCorePlayer 1.08 is ready. Changes Stupid mistake from my side (I forgot to include the libmad package, so no MP3 support). The pCP Team Paul, Greg, Ralphy and Steen

piCorePlayer 1.07

pCP Team 10 November 2013

piCorePlayer 1.07 is ready. Changes Updated kernel to rpi-linux-3.11.5 Better picoreplayer script, so now it is much easier to change the Squeezelite settings, like name etc - and you can see what the current settings are. More Wifi adapters are supported (I think that most the Ralink adapters are working now). Better Wifi script (thanks to Randy McEuen who made it possible to save non-protected Wifi’s as well). The new version is larger than usual, as this has been requested by many who wanted to add extra packages to the piCorePlayer.
