August,7th: SoundSeeder Music Player V2.0.1 release

Hello XDA community! After more than a year of silent work I'm finally ready to release a new version of my SoundSeeder Music Player.

Soundseeder was completely redesigned and rebuilt from scratch
Changelog:

And much much more...

I also updated:

- Soundseeder Speaker Java Edition for windows/linux updated to v0.6.1
These updates restore the compatibility with the Soundseeder Music Player v2.0

Introduction
SoundSeeder streams your music via WiFi to additional devices and turns them into wireless speakers.
All devices play your music in sync as one large sound system.
Share music with friends or use your old unused Android phones or any Windows/MacOS/Linux computer (incl Raspberry Pi) to build a wireless multiroom audio system.
SoundSeeder also supports the portable hotspot feature of Android and "WiFi direct" to connect devices wherever you want.

SoundSeeder for Android
  • The SoundSeeder Music Player is available for phones and tablets running Android 4.1+. Use it like any other audio player or connect it as speaker to another running SoundSeeder Music Player. Note: SoundSeeder is a freemium application. You can use the free version as long as you want to. It includes ad, is limited to two connected speakers and auto-disconnects speakers every 15 minutes.
  • The SoundSeeder Speaker application adds support for older smartphones (Android v2.2 – v4.0). This is a “Speaker-Only” version of SoundSeeder and can be connected to the SoundSeeder Music Player app.
SoundSeeder for Windows/Linux/MacOS
  • SoundSeeder Speaker for JavaSE is an application to connect any PC as speaker to the SoundSeeder Music Player Android app.
    It supports Windows, Linux and MacOS PCs and single-board computers like the Raspberry Pi.

Nice concept, but would be better if you could get it to work via mobile data or Bluetooth (as opposed to WiFi) since chances are if people are gonna use their phones for music, they will be outdoors somewhere not at home where they probably have a music system already.

Hello djsubtronic and thank you for your feedback!

SoundSeeder supports Androids built-in mobile Hotspot.
You can create the mobile Hotspot (a link to the Wi-Fi settings is inside the app) and connect all devices to that Hotspot.
So you can use the app outdoors in the park while having a picnic.

Hello @jekatt
I've now tested the app a little bit more and must say I really like it!

But I'm missing one feature in the music player:
Saving and managing Playlists would be great!

You are right, thats a good idea.
Currently you can use playlist files, that are found on your phone.
We will add the feature to create, edit and delete own playlists.

Worked like a charm on my note 2 and s3. Going to test on several old androids in a while. Might I suggest widgets on both the player and speaker sides?
