A place to share alternatives to popular online services that can be self-hosted without giving up privacy or locking you into a service you don't control.

Rules:

  1. Be civil: we're here to support and learn from one another. Insults won't be tolerated. Flame wars are frowned upon.

  2. No spam posting.

  3. Posts have to be centered around self-hosting. There are other communities for discussing hardware or home computing. If it's not obvious why your post topic revolves around selfhosting, please include details to make it clear.

  4. Don't duplicate the full text of your blog or github here. Just post the link for folks to click.

  5. Submission headline should match the article title (don’t cherry-pick information from the title to fit your agenda).

I've been using SB for years but it's just a bit shit sometimes.

What I love about it is that it has Chromecast Bridgez meaning I can play music to my Google Home Minis.

But nowadays I have all my music in Plex and I'm using Symphonium to stream to my phone. Symphonium connects up nicely.to my Google minis, I just need something to replace my squeeze lite end points so I can send music to them from my phone.

Currently these are both running on Pis so if anyone can recommend an easy UPNP endpoint software for a pi, that would be great.

Have you looked at snapcast? It's one of the tools I'm going to evaluate for a similar use case. I'm not sure if it works with Plex OOTB but it the docs say it supports UPnP. Snapcast is actively maintained so you can just create an issue on github and see how they reply.

This looks like a good shout. I have actually tried it out but it was years ago when I was trying to get a Sonos-like service and ultimately settled on Squeezebox.

Maybe it's time to try it again, thanks for the idea
