Simple Music Player Module



  • MM Music Player

    First module, first time using node, go easy on me ;)

    I made this for the original MagicMirror that used the standard xampp stack, so this was originally made using PHP for the back end part of it. I basically ported this over to MagicMirror2 from there.


    Basically, this is a simple music player. Add your music (must be .mp3) to the music directory in the module and it will automatically detect them. No need to manage a list of file names or anything like that. After that, simply click play.

    Note: You do need to be able to click the buttons, otherwise the music won’t start. I may apply an option to the config to auto play on launch if anyone is interested. I have made it this way as I am working on a MagicMirror that I plan to make touch screen (well, try it).



  • Just for an update on this, I haven’t pushed this to git yet but the new module will now have a playlist where you can scroll through and choose which song to play.

    mm-music-player-update

    I’m also looking to make the volume scroll ball bigger, so it’s easier to grab. If you saw my demonstration video you can see I had a little bit of trouble grabbing it. Still working on this one though, as I want the size of the ball to remain the same visually but the actual to be larger. Unfortunately though, margin doesn’t seem to detect the dragging event.

  • @EoF Work nice !! thanks. Could you update the module with M3U playlist and automatic start or keyboard short cut ? I plan to use to for webradio in bathroom ;-)
    Thanks !

    Well that’s because the original doesn’t have it yet… he has updated but not made it available via ‘git pull’ yet :) He’s still tweaking it I believe but I’m sure it’ll be ready soon!



  • Hi,
    I use the module voicecontrol.
    How can I change the following to raise the volume?

    if (notification === “VOLUME_UP”){
    ?¿?¿?¿?¿?
    }
    if (notification === “VOLUME_DOWN”){
    ?¿?¿?¿
    }



  • Hey @EoF thank you for this module! How is it going with the update?
    By the way, I’ve found that when I try to change the volume, it goes random up and down
    (for example: I click on the left and the volume goes up, then I click on the center and the volume goes down, then I click on the right and the volume goes up again…) any suggestion? Thanks!



  • Thanks for the great module. One problem I have is it plays for few seconds and stops automatically. Is there a reason? Please let me know.

    Below is the code for the player from config

    {
                            module: 'mm-music-player',
                            position: 'bottom_left',
                            config: {
                                     startingVolume: 35,
                                     fadeDuriation: 2000
                                     }
                    }
    


  • Great work EoF.
    Just came over from the YouTube channel to check out your shared knowledge. Pretty awesome stuff man! Thanks for sharing with us, I have not implemented this yet as I’m still working on other kinks in my MM2.
    I wonder if any one has found a way to tie into Google Play Music since I have all my music on there already?
    Cheers!

    *** Hey EoF or anyone that’s possibly reading this, can anyone help with how to/where to load the “MM-Hide-All” files that EoF created to hide all text and make it reappear? All I was able to do was put the “module” text into the config.js and that’s it. LOL
    Noob status…
