Re: A question about music library structure and mpd

I also included album cover artwork.
Local album art support is quite new to MPD (end of 2018). Some clients support download from local http server eg MPDroid.

Re: Streaming over HTTPS: Stopping hangs

Not able to reproduce with Music Player Daemon 0.21.5 (v0.21.4-38-gcfe22502a) (Debian testing with x64 flavour) stop and pause working as expected. No increase in cpu load. Please consider updating MPD.

Re: MPD & Pulse Audio - No Sound ?

Volumio uses MPD under the hood? The Volumio website claims that Volumio can be controlled using MPD clients by emulating the MPD protocol, but I couldn't find any trace that it actually uses MPD for anything. If it does, does it ship with a supported MPD version? Recent image did not work as virtu...

Re: MPD & Pulse Audio - No Sound ?

I've not heard of any of the 4 pre-requisites to be able to compile from source, let alone if they are installed, pretty complicated stuff to get to play some music. Volumio - it is free (Android control app costs 2 or 3 bucks), open source, uses MPD under the hood and there are prefab images for y...

Re: mono stream plays on left channel only

There is no automatic mono to stereo conversion in MPD. Give asound.conf a try:

Code: Select all

pcm.!default dualmono

pcm.dualmono {
    type route
    slave.pcm "hw:0"
    ttable {
        0.0 1    # in-channel 0, out-channel 0, 100% volume
        0.1 1    # in-channel 0, out-channel 1, 100% volume
    }

You have to turn off PulseAudio. 1. Open the ~/.pulse/client.conf file to disable PulseAudio for the current user, OR Open the /etc/pulse/client.conf file to disable PulseAudio for all users. 2. Set the following attribute and ensure the line is not commented out: autospawn = no 3. Call pulseaudio -...

@Christoph> Building BlueALSA from source, installing, systemd startup and usage was pretty straight forward on a headless server. But I can not help with Pulseaudio, sorry.

@max> adding Bluetooth audio devices (and Chromecasts or SnapCast clients) during runtime would be would be pretty cool. :D

Re: Enabling Bluetooth Audio Output

The current status quo is, that in order to stream audio from/to a Bluetooth device, one has to install PulseAudio, or use Bluez < 5. However, Bluez version 4 is considered to be deprecated. Possible solution is to use BlueALSA https://github.com/Arkq/bluez-alsa Very basic example config: audio_out...
