I am new to mopidy and have limited linux experience. I managed to get most of mopidy running without too much difficulty. Now I am trying to browse/play music from a network folder. The folder is on a Synology NAS. I did not manage to mount the folder using SMB, but it works with NFS. After putting it into fstab, it is mounted at startup and I can access it manually using ssh on the Raspberry Pi that runs mopidy.
My config-file has a single line in the [file] section:
media_dirs = /music/Network/flac/ | NAS
“/music/Network/flac/” is the folder that the network folder is mounted in.
I am using musicbox webclient, mopidy mobile (android) and remotedy (android) for testing.
I know that mopidy uses the “mopidy” user profile and guess that it may have something to do with access rights to the shared folder. Hence, I created a user group “music” on the raspberry pi that has the users “pi” and “mopidy”. Then I changed ownership of the /music/Network/flac/ directory to this group using chown. Still, I am not sure, if that worked properly. How do I check, if mopidy has the required access rights?
What else could be the problem?
