WD MyCloud 3TB and Logitech's Squeezebox Radio


This is my first post and I am not a sophisticated technologist.  I recently bought a WD MyCloud (3TB) and I would like to stream my MP3 music to my Logitech’s Squeezebox Radio. 

Squeezebox is able to talk to some NAS devices “easily” and as a matter of fact has Logitech Media Server software. It comes in different tastes: Windows, MAC, Linux, and some NAS devices BUT NOT WD MyCloud. There is no ready, out-of-the box solution for MyCloud.

Does anyone of you know how to connect a Squeezebox to WD MyCloud? Either by installing on the MyCloud the Logitech Media Server or through some, unknow to me, feature of DLNA? Both devices are DLNA compatible. 

Does WD plan to produce an APP or solution for Squeezebox? 

hi… any help or ideas?

Well, here is my 2 cents.

I dont know what Squeezebox is, I tried to read about it and still can’t makeup what is it :slight_smile:

Anyway, mycloud is a media server and no need to install anything.

Any DLNA aware device, app (phone, tablet/computer), should find it.

As to what wd plans, who knows.

check this support/faq


or ask their forum.

Maybe someone here used it and can help.


I’m not familiar with Squeezebox Radio but I do use a Touch and a Boom connected to Logitech Media Server running on my My Cloud. It works fine so long as the My Cloud is not running other tasks.  Look here for how to disable some background scanning tasks that when actively scanning will render LMS unusable. http://community.wd.com/t5/WD-My-Cloud/Hidden-wdmc-directories-created-by-mcserver-and-photodbmerger/m-p/682091/highlight/true#M7765

Here’s a guide on installing Logitech Media Server (Squeezeboxserver) on My Book.  It’s been months since I used it to install LMS on my My Cloud but it should still work.   http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/squeezeboxserver  

To install the latest version 7.8 of LMS instead of v7.6 use these commands in place of those in the guide:

wget http://downloads.slimdevices.com/LogitechMediaServer_v7.8.0/logitechmediaserver_7.8.0_all.deb
dpkg -i logitechmediaserver_7.8.0_all.deb


Remember that WD advises performing the above steps will void your warranty.
