LMS plugins

LMS is an open source multi-room audio system. It was created by SlimDevices and then acquired by Logitech. Although Logitech has ended development of hardware devices, the project is still very active with lots of plugin released regularly. New hardware players can be added using PI devices and DAC board to build high-quality multi-room. I’ve created some extra plugins, especially to include new standard hardware/players to the LMS ecosystem: UPnP/DLNA (Sonos), ChromeCast and AirPlay.

Why Engineers Should Spend More Time Contributing to Open Source

SourceForge - Vie, 10/12/2018 - 06:23

Software engineers are running a race. Not a literal one, but one that is just as challenging. It’s a race to keep themselves and the companies and organizations they work for productive, updated and relevant. It’s a race against output deadlines; a race to reach productivity goals; and a race to keep up with constantly changing technology and other developments.

So suggesting that they spend more time contributing to open source projects? The idea just seems counterproductive. Why would you want engineers spending precious time on other projects?

Turns out, there’s more than a couple of good reasons why.

Community Building

At first glance it may seem like a black hole for time and resources, but participating in open source delivers benefits to a company that really can’t be found anywhere else. Central to this is the community around open source projects. When engineers contribute to these projects they become part of a community and forge invaluable partnerships with other companies. These connections help keep engineers updated on the latest technologies relevant to the community and their own projects. It also gives them some amount of influence on the direction of certain open source projects.

Keeps Engineers at the Top of Their Game

Connections and open source experience are crucial when it comes to building one’s career as an engineer, especially in today’s world where connectivity and open source have become ubiquitous. Open source experience expands their skills and knowledge, which are then applied to their own work, thus providing benefits for all.

Open source projects have a way of making good engineers even better, because it promotes best coding practices and provides a safe place for them to improve their craft. They are able to iterate and improve code, review code and gain useful feedback that helps them write even better code.

Working on open source projects also gives engineers a break of sorts from their usual routines. Looking at other projects gives them fresh eyes when going back to their own projects. Tackling and overcoming new challenges recharges them, encourages them to be more productive with their own projects, and allows them to learn new and innovative techniques.

Attracts Top Talent

Last but not least, allowing engineers to work on open source projects establishes a company culture that is highly attractive to a lot of other talented engineers. Organizations that participate in open source are often more capable and aware of bleeding edge technologies, and as such encourage more innovation. They are also better aligned with the needs of the community. These are qualities that make a company a top choice for potential employees. Not only that, allowing engineers to work on open source projects empowers engineers and keeps them engaged and excited about their work, which attracts them all the more to your company.

Contributing to open source offers many great opportunities and advantages not just for engineers but for the companies they work for. With open source playing such a significant role today and no doubt in the future, such contributions can really drive progress in the tech world. By allowing engineers more time and resources to work on open source projects, we’re playing a part in building better tech and a better future for all software companies and communities.

Project Web PHP Upgrade

SourceForge - Jue, 10/11/2018 - 23:08

Starting Monday, Oct 15, 2018, we are making PHP 7.1 available in our project web hosting as a part of the newer https hosting option. Those remaining on the older http hosting will continue to utilize PHP 5.4. For those who are not familiar with the project web hosting, keep in mind that any current links to your project web pages will continue to be valid since the old paths will redirect to the new. However, you may need to do some domain tweaking in your files to handle the difference (and to avoid superfluous redirections) and to make some http-to-https protocol tweaks for linked materials to avoid warnings about insecure files.

We chose the 7.1 release as our first version of PHP 7 because it offers more backward compatibility features than going straight to 7.2 or 7.3. In the future we will be upgrading PHP to newer versions of 7.x, so users are encouraged to check for compatibility warnings and fix them to future-proof their apps.

For the transition we have created a list of projects that are already on the hosting but aren’t yet ready for PHP 7 so that we can temporarily exclude them from the upgrade while reaching out to the project admins to let them know about the issue. We also provide a way for admins to test their website under PHP 7 before making the switch. Visit our Project Web Services documentation page to learn more.

Today in Tech – 1980

SourceForge - Mié, 10/10/2018 - 06:12

On this day in 1980 Japanese company Namco officially transferred rights to its arcade game Pac-Man to American video game developer Midway Games. This was a significant moment as the game’s popularity didn’t take off until it was released in the US that very same month. Pac-Man was first released to a lukewarm response in Japan in May of 1980 with the name Puck Man, created by video game designer Toru Iwatani.

The game became immensely popular since its US release, sparking a “Pac-Man Fever” and inspiring various, very lucrative merchandise and media. Pac-Man became an icon of 1980s popular culture, and today is still considered one of the most popular and influential video games of all time.

October 2018, “Staff Pick” Project of the Month – Universal Media Server

SourceForge - Vie, 10/05/2018 - 06:25

For our October “Staff Pick” Project of the Month, we selected Universal Media Server, a DLNA-compliant UPnP Media Server that streams many media formats with minimal configuration. Universal Media Server was previously elected “Community Choice” Project of the Month in March 2014 where project founder and lead developer Klaus Townsend spoke about the project’s developments and direction. Recently we caught up with Klaus to find out how the project has been doing since then.

SourceForge (SF): What significant changes have occurred with your project since you were voted Project of the Month in March 2014?
Klaus Townsend (KT): 2014 is so long ago, it feels like everything has changed! We were on version 3 back then, and now we are well into version 7. There have been too many things to mention but just a few highlights have been:
1: Released the web interface we mentioned in the first interview
2: Added “Fully played actions” to let users keep track of what they have already played
3: Added smarter dynamic folders in the “Media Library” like “Unwatched”, along with automatic IMDb-like info lookups thanks to OpenSubtitles.
These features have allowed our users to spend less time organising their media, and more time enjoying it.
We have also had a monumental amount of speed and stability improvements, and added/improved support for many more devices including iPhone/Android apps, Chromecast, 4K and 3D TVs, etc.
Thanks to our talented past and present developers like valib, Nadahar, SharkHunter, Sami32, skeptical, and many more!

SF: Have any of your project goals changed since then?
KT: The main goal of our project is to be able to serve all media to all devices, and we have certainly come closer to that goal. While before we just supported DLNA, now we support UPnP and HTTP/S too, so it is rare to find a device that we don’t support! We are constantly improving things across all these areas with the help of our users.

SF: What can we look forward to with Universal Media Server?
KT: We have a lot of things in the works that are designed to make the program more intuitive and easy to use, including standalone builds for more operating systems (currently we have them for Windows), better defaults and automatic detection across operating systems, as well as new features on the horizon involving online syncing and streaming.

SF: Is there anything else we should know?
KT: Yes! We are currently recruiting for new developers, so if you are looking for a new project to get involved with, or know someone who might be interested, please send them our way. Here is our post about it

Also, due to the huge scope of the project, there are inevitably bugs. If you use UMS and encounter a bug, please report it to us on the forum or on our GitHub page, and we will usually respond quickly.

Finally, we also want to thank our growing user base for their support and to everyone who shows their generosity by donating It makes a big difference to our website hosting costs.
