First, a disclaimer: While quite versed in Raspian (and, to a lesser degree, Python …) I’m new to mopidy and its extensions.
I’ve successfully set up from Raspbian (stretch) with gstreamer1.0 + plugins (both …good and …ugly), and mopidy:
root@media3:~# pip list | grep -i mopidy Mopidy (2.1.0) Mopidy-ALSAMixer (1.1.0) Mopidy-AudioAddict (0.3.1) Mopidy-Iris (3.13.1) Mopidy-Local-Images (1.0.0) Mopidy-Scrobbler (1.1.1) Mopidy-Spotify (3.1.0) Mopidy-Spotify-Web (0.3.0)
Everything works as expected – local files, spotify, spotify-web, etc – exceptt the one extension I really need: Namely “mopidy-audioaddict” – as fetched from "nilicule/mopidy-audioaddict " GitHub repo and installed via “pip”.
I need that extension for listening to “jazzradio” . When trying to tune into a channel from “jazzradio.com” that extension issue the following error:
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/mopidy_audioaddict/actor.py", line 161, in _unwrap_stream scan_result.mime.startswith('text/') or AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'startswith' WARNING 2018-02-23 13:46:35,442 [1956:Core-12] mopidy.core.tracklist Track is not playable: audioaddict:channel:86
The whole stack trace and the “/etc/mopidy/mopdiy.conf” configuration (the mopidy-audioaddict section) is uploaded here:
I’ve tested that very same configuration for “mopidy-audioaddict” on “pi-musicbox 0.7r5” (which packs older versions of mopidy and gstreamer) and it works just fine there.
So what that tells me is that there is some incompatible change from the (old) mopidy in “pi-musicbox” (0.7r5) and latest mopidy that I have (namely “2.1.0”), and that change breaks this “mopidy-audioaddict” extension.
To make matters worse, it seems that this extension is abandoned code – last submit on the “mopidy-audioaddict” GitHub is from 3 years ago.
So, my ask is: I would need the help of the fine mopidy people here to debug the error / fix the code.
In no particular order:
Can any mopidy expert take a look at that error and point out how the code needs to be updated to work with latest mopidy (considering the changes from mopidy 1.0 to 2.1.0).
Lacking that, does anyone has some guidance into:
- How to set up an mopidy extension development environment to fix this ? Tools that I need ? How do I set a local capture that stream to see what do I need to fix ? How do I use that in a development environment ?
- Is there a “dummy” extension that I can use as a boiler plate to “get inspired” and see how a working code should look like ? Some other radio stream extension that is known to work and can be adapted for “audioaddict” / jazzradio ?
Any guidance or help would be appreciated.
