Squeezebox: Can't get Audio Sink to work for notifications

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f173a2ac080>

Great, thank you!

FTR

I just had the same issue trying to use voiceRSS with my openhab stable 2.4 on a raspberry pi3 using docker

Your jar fixed my issue as well!

Many thanks @mhilbush and @Christoph_B for fixing and testing respectively !
Very much appreciated

Edit: To be honest I did not think this is going to fix it because my container is supposed to use the host ip address and not an internal one (not using the bridge network). Maybe I do not understand well how notifications are supposed to work

Hi friends.
I have may be the same problem with notifications on OH2.5.0 m1.
In log i see this url generated by pollytts(amazon):

20:57:12.892 [DEBUG] [ernal.handler.SqueezeBoxServerHandler] - Sending command: 00:00:00:00:00:06 playlist add http://192.168.0.254:8090/audio/b36dc725-a122-402c-a317-02d48503ccd6.mp3 Notification

if i go to this url i got error 404 - not found.
But in cache folder \userdata\cache\org.openhab.voice.pollytts:
i see voice files correctly generated by Amazon with this name: Tatyana_4dca73ae6c8476b520d815e93785ee55.mp3 This file plays correctly. Please, @mhilbush help to resolve this problem with no sound on notifications.

This is normal. These URLs are one-time-use only. They disappear pretty quickly after being passed to the notification service. Therefore, this is unrelated to the issue you’ve described above.

The worrisome part is this. This doesn’t look like a valid MAC address.

Sending command: 00:00:00:00:00:06

Can you post a complete debug log showing the following.

  • stop org.openhab.binding.squeezebox (from the console)
  • start org.openhab.binding.squeezebox (from the console)
  • play a notification

Also, what are you using as a player (e.g. piCorePlayer)?

Thank you for reply, @mhilbush. I use a squeezelite 2 players with logitech mediaserver.


Squeezelite v1.9.2-1165, Copyright 2012-2015 Adrian Smith, 2015-2019 Ralph Irving. 

The mac address is correct. This is software players and i assign this mac address at startup script of player.


openhab> smarthome:audio sinks

The smarthome:voice say some text command in console work correctly, but they speak only at one player (regardless Bathroom or Kitchen player set as default)

This is log smarthome voise say test command:

Now i realy hear the notification but only in one player with very low volume. Some note: players work in logitech media server in SYNC mode.

This is players processes in system:


[root@Archey ~]# ps -ax | grep sque
  373 ?        SLsl   2:44 /usr/bin/squeezelite -D -v -o front:CARD=DAC,DEV=0 -n NewKitchen -m 00 00 00 00 00 06
  374 ?        SLsl   2:24 /usr/bin/squeezelite -D -v -o default:CARD=sunxicodec -n Bathroom -m 00 00 00 00 00 05
 1626 pts/0    S+     0:00 grep sque


I’m not sure what’s going on. I’d suggest trying a few things.

  • unsync the players. This shouldn’t matter, but it will reduce the number of variables.

  • copy one of the mp3 files from the polyttts cache to your openHAB conf/html directory, then try to play that URL directly from the LMS. That will confirm that the LMS and players can successfully play the mp3 without openHAB in the loop. URL will look like this.

http://your.openhab.ip.address:port/static/name-of-file.mp3

Try this with each of your players.

I try to play tts sound using link and directly from LMS and i found very strange behavior on one of players(NewKitchen). This player atached to the usb device DAC. The sound played very fast and with low volume. Other sound (doorbel.mp3) plays fine on this player.
Another player (Bathroom) play all tested files fine withou any problems. This player use internal DAC.
If player synchrnized i listen all (say destination Bathroom or Kitchen) sound on Bathroom player, if players not sync i listen only sounds for Bathroom player.
Problem in kernel module for this dac or mp3 format? Or may be i need some extra option for starting this squuezelite player
Some info about USB DAC ( [PCM2704 USB DAC):

Good bit of analysis!

I’m no expert in DACs or MP3s. But, in the past I’ve had issues with squeezelite playing some MP3s (i.e. it wouldn’t play short MP3s). Tracking this down was difficult. I was very fortunate that the maintainer of squeezelite was able to make a fix.

I’m not sure what to suggest in your case. Sorry.

Thank you, @mhilbush for your advices. I suppouse i found problem, but i have no idea how to resolve it.
My dac PCM2704 support only 32 44.1 48 khz sample rates. But Pollytts make files with 22050 khz sample rate. Wheh i resample my polly tts file using this command:

ffmpeg -i /opt/openhab2/conf/html/Tatyana_5392486ccd5e7971cd0cba02acccb651.mp3 -ar 44100 tat_44100.mp3

the new file tat_44100.mp3 played fine on both players in synced mode.
Unfortunatelly amazon does not have opportunity to make files in 44.1 khz sample rate.
Does Javasound have this opportunity?
Recieve file than resample and play it.

UPD: i find resample option in squeezelite : -R -u [params] Resample, params = ::::<passband_end>:<stopband_start>:<phase_response>,
recipe = (v|h|m|l|q)(L|I|M)(s) [E|X], E = exception - resample only if native rate not supported, X = async - resample to max rate for device, otherwise to max sync rate
and i will try this later.

VoiceRSS creates 44.1 kHz files. Not sure if that service would work for you…
