Open the plexamp.service file and change the ExecStart line to read /usr/local/bin/node instead of /usr/bin/node You can now cast to your Plexamp from the Plex Web UI!

Basically, the Plex server will "direct play/stream" (i.e. not transcode) a file if the client player (e.g. iPhone) supports that format natively. So if you have FLACs on your PC and you use your iPhone as the player, the Plex server will recognize the iPhone and automatically know that it can't natively play FLAC files.Is it possible to stream plexamp to a hi-fi stereo?
I wanted to be able to stream Plexamp to my hi-fi stereo the same way I do other music, and of course this is a problem that can be solved with a Raspberry Pi. This is stuff I had laying around in my electronics bin, any Pi with any type of soundcard (whether a hat or USB).
