Once I hit OK, another pop up appears for 1-3 seconds saying Importing music and once it disappears the app becomes unresponsive and no music has been downloaded.

This issue is fixed in v.1.6.0. Thanks for testing Chris

Hi jekatt, thanks for the nice release!
Do you have a recommendation which USB soundcard to choose?

I'd like to connect my a chromecast audio to my soundseeder player to stream spotify to multiple speakers in my house.

SoundSeeder android usb audio


Microphone support
Soundseeder is now able to record the input of the internal microphone, to stream it to all your connected speakers.
(To avoid audio feedbacks, you should turn off the speaker of the SoundSeeder Player device, while using the microphone.)

USB-Audio support
SoundSeeder now also supports the Android host mode for audio on compatible Android devices*.
If your device supports USB-Audio accessory, you can use soundseeder to stream external audio sources via the line-in (AUX) port of a connected USB soundcard.

*USB host mode needs to be supported by your hardware. USB-Audio is officially supported since Android 5.0 and proprietary supported by some vendors since Android 4.1. We have successfully tested soundseeder with soundcards based on the “C-Media” audio chipset.
Especially users of Nexus devices should see the article Record and play back audio using USB host mode for more information.

Full release notes:
- Microphone & line in (AUX) support
- USB soundcard support (“USB host for audio” required)
- Android M support
- Improved connection handling
- Google Music import fixed
- UI and usability improved
- Bugfixes

As always: please let me know what you think about the new features and report all issues you notice.

The implementation is based on the native usb audio support of android.
Googles statement about supported audio devices is: "Android host mode for audio supports most USB audio class compliant or "driverless" accessories."

In detail:
Code:
Host mode

Android 5.0 (API level 21) and above supports a subset of USB audio class 1 (UAC1) features:

The Android device must act as host
The audio format must be PCM (interface type I)
The bit depth must be 16-bits, 24-bits, or 32-bits where 24 bits of useful audio 
data are left-justified within the most significant bits of the 32-bit word
The sample rate must be either 48, 44.1, 32, 24, 22.05, 16, 12, 11.025, or 8 kHz
The channel count must be 1 (mono) or 2 (stereo)
Perusal of the Android framework source code may show additional code 
beyond the minimum needed to support these features. But this code has 
not been validated, so more advanced features are not yet claimed.


Accessory mode

Android 4.1 (API level 16) added limited support for audio playback to the
host. While in accessory mode, Android automatically routes its audio 
output to USB. That is, the Android device serves as a data source to the 
host, for example a dock.

Great, thank you. There are lots of "driverless" usb soundcards available with good ratings for less than 10$.
Mine is already ordered. I'll write a short review when its working.

Hi wsramahi.
The range to adjust the offset (delay) of the playback is -400ms to 400ms. Can you explain what exactly doesn't work when you try to set the offset?

And bluetooth speakers should work, but they add an additional variable delay to the playback. So its quite hard to get them in sync...

Hello.
I noticed an issue. When saving my song queue as playlist, it misses some titles after loading the playlist again.
The affected titles contain some special characters like: é

The delay offset slider is incremented with +-10, my case i had was something between 0 & 10 for an accurate sound timing which i couldn't have.

I have samsung tab s2 8inch, and when im using soundseeder without bluetooth its working until i connect a Bluetooth device, the player keeps playing but no sound is transferred to the connected device on the streamer device (tab s2)
