I just set one up. Install the Fabriq according to the instructions it came with and get it on your wifi. Then Install the Generic Media Render, per the link below. Install the Connect and the Player. Read the README.md

Read this topic too

My Fabriq works great, with Big Talker, I haven’t found a music player yet. The one thing that is strange it says “No Present” in the ST App. I wonder if there is a way to fix this.

Hi Jay, The player must to be installed in my device handler section, the connect in My Smart apps.

The status “No Present” happen when the connect does not receive answer from player, the causes are:
1.- The speaker is not powered on.
2.- The speaker is it in sleep mode and the network its disabled
3.- The speaker its in Bluetooth mode and the network mode is not working (some speakers disabled other modes)
4.- The speaker has changed the ip or port or uuid (frequently in software speakers)

The connect check the status every ~5 min and update the ip and port based in uuid, but if st crash the timer, the refresh ip is stopped, I suggest:

1.- Set a static ip for your speakers, to make more stable system
2.- Use a watchdog app to verify the timer.
