Blinkt VU meter help needed

I’m trying to set up my Blinkt as a VU meter, I found a couple of posts but have struggled to get it up and running.

Truth is I don’t know where to start. I think I managed to install some of the software but what next?

If anybody has this up and running I’d appreciate a heads up as I’m still learning.



I found an option in VLC player to play the file using Blinkt but i’m not sure if this only appeared after I managed to copy the asound.conf file into the root /etc directory. That took me about an hour to figure out and only because I can remember a bit of DOS from back in the day ;)

All working now
