I have been using Yatse from the early start as remote for Kodi. But the last 2 years I have also used it to continue watching video on my local device via Yatse.
And now, Yatse is slowly becoming an even bigger part of my daily life: an additional music player, in addition to Spotify, by streaming music from my Vero4K to my Android device.
Since both Pi Music Player and Foobar2000 do not have the ability to use a UPNP source as library (Foobar can playback from the source but you can’t set it as your library), I thought let’s give Yatse a try and I was surprised to see how well it works already! I use it A LOT now, playing my FLAC albums on my phone without storing them
I have to say Yatse is already a good music player, intuitive and pleasant for the eyes. There are however a couple of features that would make it great for frequent use:
- Support crossfade between tracks. This really is the only feature I absolutely miss.
- Gapless playback. I miss this one too…
- Add (and remove) songs to a (new) playlist
- Save the current now playing list.
It is already possible to queue songs, the playlist features therefore make a lot of sense. It would be amazing if these playlists would become part of the Kodi library but I fully understand that’s not how it works or what UPNP Library is meant for…
Any chance these features will be added?
