Macrobeat

Macrobeat is an all in one cloud streaming interface for YouTube, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Spotify and more to come soon. It allows users to search all services inside the interface and add to a global playing queue and the music will play out of the connected speakers (from the server) It requires minimal setup and has a great interface.

Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine.

Prerequisites

You must have NodeJS, NPM, MPV and YouTube DL installed for this project to function.

NodeJS and NPM are offered on their site

MPV can be found in major Linux distributions package managers

Ubuntu/Debian

apt-get install mpv youtube-dl

Solus

eopkg install mpv youtube-dl

If it's not found you can use their websites to download and add to your paths MPV, YoutubeDL

Test installation by issuing these commands:

node -v
npm -v
youtube-dl --version
mpv --version

You should have no errors and see all 4 of the respective versions

Installing

  1. Clone the repo
  2. Run npm install to install the node packages
  3. Install MPV and YoutubeDL (Linux users should be able to find them on their package managers)
  4. Windows users: Either add MPV and YoutubeDL to your PATH after downloading the binaries or set them in a folder easily accessed and set the MPV_LOCATION env variable
  5. Run npm run build
  6. Run npm run start

Out of the box, Macrobeat supports YouTube and Bandcamp with no configuration. If you wish to use Soundcloud and Spotify follow these steps.

Spotify:

  1. Make a spotify application at https://developer.spotify.com/dashboard/
  2. Add a redirect URI that your clients will be able to hit
  3. Set the SPOTIFY_REDIRECT_URI, SPOTIFY_CLIENT_SECRET, and SPOTIFY_CLIENT_ID env variables

Soundcloud:

  1. Register a soundcloud application at https://soundcloud.com/you/apps
  2. Copy the Client ID and set the SOUNDCLOUD_CLIENT_ID

You should now see a print in the terminal saying it's listening on a specific port. If you point any browsers on your local network to the server's IP and port you should be asked for a display name and icon.
