few “silly questions” if you wouldn’t mind advising a new starter. From what I have read, I cannot fully grok the working model for Balena Sound. I cannot tell if balena sound is talking to the local raspberry pies only or talking to the cloud? Does music go from the phone to the master rpi? or through a Balena cloud server?
Further working model grokking problems:
I have all the music on a server, and I want to stream it to the dumb kitchen hifi. I am setting this up for my wife, as she likes her music in the kitchen when she cooks (I prefer silence - can’t focus on the recipe otherwise) She like to just stream her music from YouTube over her crap phone speakers, but we have all her CD music on the server, and a nice hifi there in the kitchen. She won’t use any new screen I add to the hifi. I think balena fit in here but I am not sure. I want the control app on the phone to show the album art when she uses the phone, the server to send the music to an rpi in the kitchen, driving the dumb hifi.
Looking at all the Balena sound tutorials, it looks like the music has to be on the phone. Can the phone app mount a shared network drive, or play from a media server software to a Balena sound rpi?
If so would this still use Balena cloud? and why?
