Implementation

Start by creating the PlayerManager and passing a list of nodes and optional list of regions

const { PlayerManager } = require('eris-lavalink');

let nodes = [
	{ host: 'localhost', port: 8080, region: 'eu', password: 'youshallnotpass' }
];

let regions = {
	eu: ['eu', 'amsterdam', 'frankfurt', 'russia', 'hongkong', 'singapore', 'sydney'],
	us: ['us', 'brazil'],
};

if (!(client.voiceConnections instanceof PlayerManager)) {
	client.voiceConnections = new PlayerManager(client, nodes, {
		numShards: shardCount, // number of shards
		userId: userid, // the user id of the bot
		regions: regions,
		defaultRegion: 'eu',
	});
}

To resolve a track, use the Lavalink rest api

const superagent = require('superagent');

async function resolveTracks(node, search) {
	try {
		var result = await superagent.get(`http://${node.host}:2333/loadtracks?identifier=${search}`)
			.set('Authorization', node.password)
			.set('Accept', 'application/json');
	} catch (err) {
		throw err;
	}

	if (!result) {
		throw 'Unable play that video.';
	}

	return result.body; // array of tracks resolved from lavalink
}

resolveTracks(node, 'ytsearch:the 30 second video').then(tracks => {
	if (!tracks) {
		// no tracks to play
	}
	// do something with the tracks
})

To join and leave voice channels, use the Lavalink client rather than using eris.

// to get or join a channel
function getPlayer(channel) {
	if (!channel || !channel.guild) {
		return Promise.reject('Not a guild channel.');
	}

	let player = client.voiceConnections.get(channel.guild.id);
	if (player) {
		return Promise.resolve(player);
	}

	let options = {};
	if (channel.guild.region) {
		options.region = channel.guild.region;
	}

	return client.joinVoiceChannel(channel.id, options);
}

// play example
getPlayer(channel).then(player => {
	player.play(track); // track is the base64 track we get from Lavalink

	player.on('disconnect', (err) => {
		if (err) {
			// log error
		}
		// do something
	});

	player.on('error', err => {
		// log error and handle it
	});

	player.on('stuck', msg => {
		// track stuck event
	})

	player.once('end', data => {
		// REPLACED reason is emitted when playing without stopping, I ignore these to prevent skip loops
		if (data.reason && data.reason === 'REPLACED') {
			return;
		}

		// start playing the next song
	});
});

// stop example
getPlayer(channel).then(player => {
	player.stop();
	if (leave) {
		// disconnect and leave the channel
		client.leaveVoiceChannel(channel.id);
	}
})

A note on pauses

When you pause a player, the player will be kept in a paused state until you explicitly call resume or the player is disconnected. Calls to play and stop won't clear the pause state. player.paused can be used to check if the player is in paused state.
