Did you reinstall the packages after upgrade?

im not sure what package was required

Ummm...defnately madplay. If you didn't reinstall it, that's likely your problem.

Perhaps also:

  • audio drivers

Maybe try a longer sleep before starting?
Package mpg123 can play http mp3 streams as well.

I don't see any connection to pressing a HID button on the speakers. For that you need something like triggerhappy backed by kmod-usb-hid.

Use the full path for each executable.


what do you mean full path?
i already installed mpg123 and kmod usb hid
i dont know how to setup triggerhappy

Full path would be for example /usr/bin/mpg123. Use the which command to find the full path:

root@OpenWrt:~# which mpg123

It's usually best to use the full path for everything in scripts because you can't be sure what the script's working directory and environment (particularly PATH=) will be when it is launched automatically by another process.

Setting up triggerhappy is beyond the scope of this forum. It's a standard Linux thing. There was a long thread here by someone who set up several variations of Internet radios on OpenWrt, including button controls.
