Music player

  • Am i right in thinking that its no good me looking to have a basic music player in my MM? Owing to not being able to use/see the cursor?
    I had the thought too that I could just use Kodi as a music streamer running underneath , but when I finaly got around to trying that, it never dawned on me that Kodi retains its landscape aspect… not good on a portrait screen.

    Any suggestions on a basic music player… preferably where i can stream from my pc, or from a flash drive/stick added to the Pi? Whether this is a MM module that can be used somehow using something like MMM Remote control… or just one that I can run from Raspbian’s desktop in the background?

    You could probably use remotecontrol and mpg123 (that runs in the background).

    Look at how gismoz voice radio and my touchplayer works. (Running .sh scripts to starr mpg123)

    Hey thanks for that… Is mpg123 a third party module i add?

    Where do I go to see see how gismoz voice radio and your touch player works? — (Running .sh scripts to starr mpg123) … ok, that is waaaaay over my half brain cell lol but willing and able to give anything a go… I’ve only just learned how to Add to and Edit the config.js, so i’m still very much at the breast feeding stage with Linux and my Pi

    @johnnyboy mpg123 is a linux mp3player that you run from the terminal, it’s a program not a module.

    My touchplayer

    Gismos voiceplayer

    Mpg123 is found here

    Ok, just gotten back to this now… So, how do I get this downloaded since it’s not through the usual method eh? The

  • Module Developer

    @johnnyboy to install mpg123 on your raspberry : sudo apt-get install mpg123

    As an aside… using apt-get autoremove, (to get rid of packages no longer required) produces E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: permission denied)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (var/lib/dpkg/) , are you root?

    Why is is?
