Need help setting up Mopidy server!

Hi guys! :slight_smile: First of all would really appreciate some help and troubleshooting :slight_smile:

my config looks like this:
# For further information about options in this file see:

The initial commented out values reflect the defaults as of:

Mopidy 2.3.1

Mopidy-File 2.3.1

Mopidy-HTTP 2.3.1

Mopidy-Local 2.3.1

Mopidy-M3U 2.3.1

Mopidy-MPD 2.3.1

Mopidy-SoftwareMixer 2.3.1

Mopidy-Stream 2.3.1

Available options and defaults might have changed since then,

run mopidy config to see the current effective config and

mopidy --version to check the current version.

But I am unable to connect to my server, any help on that? Usding the 127…ip adress, is this the correct one? And secondly I would like to connect to the server out of my home network, any docs on that? :slight_smile:

There’s information about configuring the hostname at

Please read that page carefully, specifically the warning as it is relevant to your 2nd question. Also, just to check, are you aware that Mopidy plays music on the server’s sound card/device - it does not stream music to your browser. Which is usually why people don’t need to connect from outside their network. We don’t have any guides about how to expose Mopidy outside of your LAN.
