Short Description
Mopidy (MPD) along with Spotify/Google Music/... extensions
Full Description

Containerized Mopidy music server with support for MPD clients and HTTP clients.

Features

You may install additional backend extensions.

Usage

PulseAudio over network

First to make audio work from within a Docker container, you should enable PulseAudio over network; so if you have X11 you may for example do:

  1. Install PulseAudio Preferences. Debian/Ubuntu users can do this:

    $ sudo apt-get install paprefs
    
  2. Launch paprefs (PulseAudio Preferences) > "Network Server" tab > Check "Enable network access to local sound devices" (you may check "Don't require authentication" to avoid mounting cookie file described below).

  3. Restart PulseAudio

    $ sudo service pulseaudio restart
    

    or

    $ pulseaudio -k
    $ pulseaudio --start
    

    On some distributions, it may be necessary to completely restart your computer. You can confirm that the settings have successfully been applied running pax11publish | grep -Eo 'tcp:[^ ]*'. You should see something like tcp:myhostname:4713.

General usage

$ docker run -d \
      -e "PULSE_SERVER=tcp:$(hostname -i):4713" \
      -e "PULSE_COOKIE_DATA=$(pax11publish -d | grep --color=never -Po '(?<=^Cookie: ).*')" \
      -v "$PWD/media:/var/lib/mopidy/media:ro" \
      -v "$PWD/local:/var/lib/mopidy/local" \
      -p 6600:6600 -p 6680:6680 \
      wernight/mopidy \
      mopidy \
      -o spotify/username=USERNAME -o spotify/password=PASSWORD \
      -o gmusic/username=USERNAME -o gmusic/password=PASSWORD \
      -o soundcloud/auth_token=TOKEN

See mopidy's command for possible additional options.

Most elements are optional (see some examples below). Replace USERNAME, PASSWORD, TOKEN accordingly if needed, or disable services (e.g., -o spotify/enabled=false):

  • For Spotify you'll need a Premium account.
  • For Google Music use your Google account (if you have 2-Step Authentication, generate an app specific password).
  • For SoundCloud, just get a token after registering.

Ports:

  • 6600 - MPD server (if you use for example ncmpcpp client)
  • 6680 - HTTP server (if you use your browser as client)

Environment variables:

  • PULSE_SERVER - PulseAudio server socket.
  • PULSE_COOKIE_DATA - Hexadecimal encoded PulseAudio cookie commonly at ~/.config/pulse/cookie.

Volumes:

  • /var/lib/mopidy/media - Path to directory with local media files (optional).
  • /var/lib/mopidy/local - Path to directory to store local metadata such as libraries and playlists in (optional).
Example using HTTP client to stream local files
  1. Give read access to your audio files to user 102 (mopidy), group 29 (audio), or all users (e.g., $ chgrp -R 29 $PWD/media && chmod -R g+r $PWD/media).
  2. Index local files:

    $ docker run --rm \
          -e "PULSE_SERVER=tcp:$(hostname -i):4713" \
          -e "PULSE_COOKIE_DATA=$(pax11publish -d | grep --color=never -Po '(?<=^Cookie: ).*')" \
          -v "$PWD/media:/var/lib/mopidy/media:ro" \
          -v "$PWD/local:/var/lib/mopidy/local" \
          -p 6680:6680 \
          wernight/mopidy mopidy local scan
    
  3. Start the server:

    $ docker run -d \
          -e "PULSE_SERVER=tcp:$(hostname -i):4713" \
          -e "PULSE_COOKIE_DATA=$(pax11publish -d | grep --color=never -Po '(?<=^Cookie: ).*')" \
          -v "$PWD/media:/var/lib/mopidy/media:ro" \
          -v "$PWD/local:/var/lib/mopidy/local" \
          -p 6680:6680 \
          wernight/mopidy
    
  4. Browse to http://localhost:6680/

Example using ncmpcpp MPD console client

$ docker run --name mopidy -d \
      -e "PULSE_SERVER=tcp:$(hostname -i):4713" \
      -e "PULSE_COOKIE_DATA=$(pax11publish -d | grep --color=never -Po '(?<=^Cookie: ).*')" \
      wernight/mopidy
$ docker run --rm -it --link mopidy:mopidy wernight/ncmpcpp ncmpcpp --host mopidy
