Subsonic plugin

Anyone interested
I've been playing around the last couple of nights with a plugin for the Subsonic music server.

It more or less works so I was wanting to gauge interest to see if it's worth investing more time. Let me know if you'd like such a plugin and what features you'd want. Oh, and read my sig if so.

    Definitely interested in seeing a Subsonic plugin. Have to look a bit further in to what I'd actually want it to do besides the normal expectation (select and stream music). A jukebox type feature would be good for parties.

    Ok, I'll see what needs to be done to finish off a basic version with selection and playing and get a beta out.

    I know of myself and one other that are interested.

    As for features it may be worth looking at iphone apps like iSub to get an idea. Even having browsing and search would be great.

    Cool, good to hear some other people are interested. I'll see what I can do to get a basic beta version out for testing.

    Id be interested in seeing what a subsonic plugin might look like. My readyNAS will be happy. :)

    Any updates on this or things we can help with?
  • jwrayjwray Members, Plex Pass Posts: 1,268 Plex Pass
    No updates I'm afraid, just haven't had the time to work on it. Was having some playback/interaction issues with the Subsonic server that I need to figure out otherwise it won't be usable. It's not dead, I'll let you know when I've made more progress.

    The ability to remotely access video via a Subsonic plugin would be a huge plus. Either way, I'm on board!

    I'd love this. I've been using Subsonic (and iSub for iPhone) and love the software. I'd be happy to help test....

    I signed up to the forums to say I'm interested in this as well. I've messed with the subsonic API a bit, but don't have the skills necessary to create an app. :(

    I'm one of those "long time listeners, first time callers" people. ;)

    I thought this might be useful:

    https://github.com/crustymonkey/py-sonic

    It's a basic Python library to wrap the REST API.

    I would be really excited to see this plugin released. I just set up my first subsonic server and am really missing the ability to play the music from within plex.

    Hopefully this becomes a reality.

    I love plex and I am a heavy subsonic user. But as soon as I put away my mobile and change over to plex for entertaining me subsonic isn't available any more. too bad. so if there is someone looking for heavy beta testing. I'm your man.

    I've modified this post. I'll re-upload the file once I've made some progress on it.

  • magnusoverlimagnusoverli Members, Plex Pass Posts: 83 Plex Pass
