❗️ Requirements

To build Strawberry from source you need the following installed on your system with the additional development packages/headers:

Either GStreamer, Xine, VLC, Deezer or Phonon engine is required, but only GStreamer is fully implemented so far. You should also install the gstreamer plugins base and good, and optionally bad and ugly.

Deezer streams with full songs are encrypted and only urls for preview streams (MP3) are exposed by the API. Full length songs requires the use of deezers own engine (Deezer SDK) or the dzmedia library (I dont have it). Deezer SDK can be found here: https://build-repo.deezer.com/native_sdk/deezer-native-sdk-v1.2.10.zip


  • The Qt 5 LastFM library is required for fetching album covers from LastFM.
  • libcdio - To enable Audio CD support
  • libmtp - MTP support.
  • libgpod - iPod Classic support.
