A very nice player lots of work there with the UI!

Ignoring hardware - can you support USB DACs = DSD and HiRES audio?

Thank you JohnW! Peppy player doesn't provide its own playback engine. It gets that functionality from one of the existing popular media players - vlc, mpd or mplayer. So if regular Raspbian Stretch and one of those media players can handle USB DAC then I would say that Peppy player can do that as well.


That mostly depends on USB DAC driver for Raspbian OS. If the driver for that DAC exists and can be used by ALSA then there should not be the problem to use it for vlc, mpd, mplayer.

headless disk image zip downloads fine and reports as 1.2 GB zip file.

However, on trying to extract it (Ubuntu Linux) it extracts as a 0 byte file "ruebens-headless.img

Default Rubens problem

Peppy Player looked attractive enough so I decided to build one for myself. My cabinet will be based on the design of a 1940's Philco radio that I like, but first I needed to get the hardware and software together. After a couple of false starts I decided to use your configuration, except that I have an Adafruit PiTft Plus (#2441) instead of the #2097 you used. There seem to be no documented differences.
I "express" installed Rubens. The touch screen didn't work. It displayed the original splash screen no matter what I did. evtest showed that screenpresses were being sent to the OS. The web browser interface does work -- I can control all functions with it.
I cleared the sdcard and "express" installed Vermeer on it. Everything works: touch screen and web browser. Just to confirm the problem, I installed Rubens again on a fresh sdcard and found the same thing: web browser works, but touchscreen doesn't.
Do you have any thoughts about this? I'd like to run Rubens (mostly for the album cover fetching), and I'd hate to be stuck in Vermeer as you continue to develop this extraordinary program.

Hi WetOne, sorry for the issues with that disk image. Let me check the installation procedure in my environment. If I'll find any issue I'll try to fix it and provide working disk image.


In the next version I'll also add album art functionality to all web radio stations which provide info about current song/artist. That will add eye candies to UI.

Meanwhile you can install Rubens edition using disk image for Vermeer edition:
Login to pi

Create backup copy:
mv /home/pi/Peppy /home/pi/Peppy.bak

Install libraries required for Rubens edition:
sudo apt-get install git
pip3 install discogs_client
sudo apt-get install bluealsa

Install Rubens edition as described here:
Updating Guide * project-owner/Peppy.doc Wiki * GitHub

git clone...


Reboot: sudo reboot


After that you should have Rubens edition working.
The only difference with disk image will be Raspbian Stretch Lite version.
It's 06/27/2018 in Rubens edition and 04/18/2018 in Vermeer.
