Hi, I am relatively new to Pi Musicbox (just installed it less than a week ago) and so far I really like it.
I have change the list of radio stations to match those I am frequently listening to, like described here.
I like the webinterface that comes with Pi Musicbox, however I would like to use MPDroid or BubblePnP (on Android) to stream Music to the Musicbox.
Now I was wondering if it is somehow possible that the radio stations I saved on the Pi show up in these apps, or can I only play them via the webinterface.
I hope someone has some suggestions for me.
I’m afraid that is not currently possible. The streams saved within musicbox-webclient are only accessible by the webclient. But you can instead save them to a local playlist and then access them via MPDroid as described here. You won’t be able to edit the streams from the webclient this way, it’s a hack until something better comes along.
So I created my .m3u file which looks like this:
#EXTINF:0,Deutschlandradio Kultur http://dradio_mp3_dkultur_m.akacast.akamaistream.net/7/530/142684/v1/gnl.akacast.akamaistream.net/dradio_mp3_dkultur_m
#EXTINF:0,BBC Radio 2
#EXTINF:0,BBC Radio 6
It plays fine in iTunes.
Now I am not sure where to put it… The description said to put it into
/var/lib/mopidy/playlists/ So I mounted my SD card but thier are no such folders, so I created them. After that I started Musicbox but the playlist did not show anywhere.
I also copied the file on a USB drive but it did not show either.
What am I doing wrong?
If memory serves there should be a ‘playlist_dir’ option in your
settings.ini. It needs to go in there.
So am I supposed to edit settings.ini to this?
Sorry but I am somehow lost …
enabled = true
media_dir = /music
playlists_dir = /var/lib/mopidy/playlists/Favourites.m3u
