Mopidy

Mopidy is an extensible music server written in Python.

Mopidy plays music from local disk, Spotify, SoundCloud, Google Play Music, and more. You edit the playlist from any phone, tablet, or computer using a variety of MPD and web clients.

Stream music from the cloud

Vanilla Mopidy only plays music from files and radio streams. Through extensions, Mopidy can play music from cloud services like Spotify, SoundCloud, and Google Play Music. With Mopidy's extension support, backends for new music sources can be easily added.

Mopidy is just a server

Mopidy is a Python application that runs in a terminal or in the background on Linux computers or Macs that have network connectivity and audio output. Out of the box, Mopidy is an HTTP server. If you install the Mopidy-MPD extension, it becomes an MPD server too. Many additional frontends for controlling Mopidy are available as extensions.

Pick your favorite client

You and the people around you can all connect their favorite MPD or web client to the Mopidy server to search for music and manage the playlist together. With a browser or MPD client, which is available for all popular operating systems, you can control the music from any phone, tablet, or computer.

Mopidy on Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is an popular device to run Mopidy on, either using Raspbian, Ubuntu, or Arch Linux. Pimoroni recommends Mopidy for use with their Pirate Audio audio gear for Raspberry Pi. Mopidy is also a significant building block in the Pi Musicbox integrated audio jukebox system for Raspberry Pi.

Mopidy is hackable

Mopidy's extension support and Python, JSON-RPC, and JavaScript APIs make Mopidy a perfect base for your projects. In one hack, a Raspberry Pi was embedded in an old cassette player. The buttons and volume control are wired up with GPIO on the Raspberry Pi, and is used to control playback through a custom Mopidy extension. The cassettes have NFC tags used to select playlists from Spotify.
