Plex: allow music section name other than 'Music' #610
I really like what you are doing. I have been looking for a command line plex client for ages, so I think your project is awesome! That said, I do have a couple of questions, rather than issues or feature requests:
Steps to Reproduce
Then as a test I tried several Tizonia plex commands to get it to play some of the music:
Which, I guess, is correct, because I am actually using a different (Dutch) name for my music library (Muziek). As soon as I change the name to 'Music' it works like a charm.
Installation Method Used
I have, by my knowledge, correctly installed tizonia, by following the instructions (ubuntu) on the website.
I have the same problem described by MPE2016. I am trying to use Tizonia with a Plex server on my local network, but I do not have a library named "Music". I get the exact same error as the OP:
This error is 100% reproducible.
I am trying to use Tizonia 0.18.0 on a computer running Linux Mint 19.2 (based on Ubuntu Bionic).
If I create a library named "Music", Tizonia works and plays fine, but only sees that one library and ignores all my other libraries. If there is no such library, Tizonia fails every time with the above error.
I really, really do not want to have to use a library named "Music". I have a very extensive collection that I have spent days configuring exactly the way I like, with multiple libraries that are not named "Music", and to have to rearrange everything to put it all in a single library named "Music" would be a hassle that I doubt would be worth the trouble just for this.
Please either detect the actual library names as provided by the server (I assume this is possible), or at least let us specify them directly in ~/.config/tizonia/tizonia.conf. Thank you.
Thanks to both of you for your suggestions.
The name of the music library will be configurable via
I've created a separate issue for the other suggestion (remote plex playback):
Hi, and thanks for the response! Just to be clear, I have *multiple* libraries on the same server, none of which are named "Music". I hope I'll be able to specify all of them in the .conf file! :)…

I see what you mean. At the moment, there is support for selecting a specific library, either statically in the conf file or via command-line flag. So switching from one library to another would be quite easy.
Selecting multiple libraries at the same time requires some more work, so that's not included here. But please, feel free to open another issue for that feature.
Thanks for the response, and for opening #642!
For now, if there were some method for selecting one library on the fly via the interface rather than editing the .conf file, that'd be a good workaround, and a valuable feature long-term.
Ultimately, I'd like to be able to shuffle or select music from some or all of my libraries at once, so I hope the development team will continue to look into that possibility.
Yes, this is possible now in 0.19.0 using the
