Hi guys, I’m fairly new to Mopidy and Raspberry Pi, and am having an issue when attempting to run Mopidy as a service to play some local mp3 files. I only have four mp3s stored in /home/pi/Music, which I can access and play via web extensions when running as a normal user, however when I run as a service they don’t appear.
My /etc/mopidy/mopidy.conf file is as follows:
[core] cache_dir = /var/cache/mopidy config_dir = /etc/mopidy data_dir = /var/lib/mopidy [logging] config_file = /etc/mopidy/logging.conf debug_file = /var/log/mopidy/mopidy-debug.log [local] enabled = true library = json media_dir = /home/pi/Music scan_timeout = 1000 scan_flush_threshold = 100 scan_follow_symlinks = false excluded_file_extensions = .directory .html .jpeg .jpg .log .nfo .png .txt [m3u] playlists_dir = /var/lib/mopidy/playlists [http] enabled = true hostname = :: port = 6680 static_dir = zeroconf = Mopidy HTTP server on $hostname
Running a local scan does find the four mp3s:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo mopidyctl local scan Running "/usr/bin/mopidy --config /usr/share/mopidy/conf.d:/etc/mopidy/mopidy.conf local scan" as user mopidy INFO Starting Mopidy 2.1.0 INFO Loading config from builtin defaults INFO Loading config from /etc/mopidy/mopidy.conf INFO Loading config from command line options INFO Enabled extensions: mopify, iris, mpd, local-images, file, stream, mobile, m3u, jukepi, http, simple-webclient, material-webclient, softwaremixer, moped, musicbox_webclient, party, api_explorer, local INFO Disabled extensions: none INFO Found 4 files in media_dir. INFO Checking 4 tracks from library. INFO Removing 0 missing tracks. INFO Found 0 tracks which need to be updated. INFO Scanning... INFO Scanned 0 of 0 files in 0s. INFO Done scanning.
And when controlling the server via a web client like Moped, there is nothing in the ‘Local Media’ folder, and within the ‘Files’ folder there are the four subfolders ‘local’, ‘local-images’, ‘media’, and ‘playlists’, corresponding to those found in /var/lib/mopidy, so nothing from the /home/pi/Music folder.
Does anyone know how I could access those local mp3 files from a web client? Apologies if I’m missing something obvious!
