Chromecast would also be a great option, if it can be easily integrated. I'd be happy to test if someone is working on this.
It's easy to get excited about developing an opensource Chromecast receiver. After all, Google publishes a Google Cast (Chromecast's former name) SDK with API documentation, right? It's only when you drill down into the fine print that you discover all the hurdles.
You could try searching github for a Chromecast equivalent to gmusicapi.

I understand it's probably a big undertaking. 

I did search for equivalents, and couldn't find any. A couple plugins for raspbian through a third party media player, but required a special app on the device, which is counterintuitive, IMO. 

Thanks,

See this Topic line: http://moodeaudio.org/forum/showthread.p...chromecast

Apparently dresdner353 solved this : http://moodeaudio.org/forum/showthread.p...chromecast


Huh? The OP asked for a way to make moOde a Chromecast receiver. You have pointed to a post describing a way to make moOde a Chromecast sender. Apples and oranges, my friend.

As stated way back in 2019 in this very thread, you can do this with DLNA/UPnP using an instance of BubbleUPnP Server.

It's not difficult, but also not perfect in that it isn't gapless, and it is limited to 24-bit/96kHz.
