Scanning locally when running multiple mopidy instances

Hi all,

I’m new to the forums and to Mopidy, so apologies if this has been covered before, however, I’m trying to setup a whole-house audio system based on Mopidy and Snapcast.

I’ve got one Mopidy process running for each “zone” and Snapcast is picking these streams up perfectly well, however, I can’t seem to get “local scan” to add the track data to each instance of Mopidy.

This appears to be because the “–config” flag isn’t available for the scan command.

Is there a way to get the list of songs into a database or similar so that all the instances can read from the DB and get details of playlists/songs/streams etc. from there?

Thanks in advance,


Ignore me, I had the “–config” and the “local scan” the wrong way around on the command line.

Database for track storage would be good though :slight_smile:

Ignore me again, I just found mopidy-local-sqlite that works a treat, unfortunately I didn’t find it in the documentation anywhere…


Glad you have found your answers.

Mopidy-Local-SQLite is just an extension and so it’s listed as such:

Just for future reference for others finding this thread, I’ve documented what I’ve done at
