file input plugin

Post by dnick » January 7th, 2018, 6:51 pm

After updating mpd from git today I can no longer add local files to the playlist. Adding a file with mpc as follows:

mpc add file:///root/Show_Bizness.wav

I get access denied in the log:

Jan 07 20:11 : client: [0] opened from local
Jan 07 20:11 : client: [0] process command list
Jan 07 20:11 : client: process command "add "file:///root/Show_Bizness.wav""
Jan 07 20:11 : exception: Access denied
Jan 07 20:11 : client: command returned 2
Jan 07 20:11 : client: [0] process command list returned 2
Jan 07 20:11 : client: [0] closed

mpd version is:

# mpd -V
Music Player Daemon 0.21 (v0.20.15-716-g34eef0ed8)
