His interface is displayed in Chinese, so I’ll translate that message for him.

@jerrylong 你要先注册一个MyVolumio帐户,然后登入才能安装插件喔。


But from the first image, it appears he is already logged in…

Thanks for your clarification.
You are right, he seems to be logged in. Could be a internet restriction?

Does Volumio servers block connections from certain countries? The UI is displaying Simplified Chinese , which could be Mainland China, Singapore, Malaysia…

What URL does Volumio need to connected? GitHub? I think internet block is the problem in China Mainland.

I would think so too, if you’re in Mainland China. I think Volumio servers are hosted on AWS (Amazon Web Services), but I didn’t think the Great Firewall would block every connection to AWS…

@volumio, could you advise?

Thank you for the reply. I am thinking of using openwrt router to change the web construction of my home. Damm Great Firewall.

If you enable ssh, you can test Volumio endpoints

volumio endpointstest

It should return something like :

Don’t think either, especially since there a 2 big AWS data centers located in China.

I think buy a new router witch could use OpenWRT is the onle way to solve the problem.

Yes it is indeed the GFW that block the Volumio from Internet. :rage:
