Re: The ultimate MPD guide

aplay -D btheadset abc.def give me :

bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connexion refusée (111)
aplay: main:682: erreur à l'ouverture audio: Connexion refusée

And I don't know what do you mean by " ditch ALSA and play trough PULSE", so in clementine I change output configuration to "pulseaudio audio Sink" and the sound comes from the bluetooth adapter. And in my system sound preference I can change the output during playback and it works.

Be excellent to each other!

OK.
One more test:

Re: The ultimate MPD guide

This command doesn't output anything. But I've just seen that it seems to work now, I really don't know why, I didn't change anything but it works with the audio_output :

audio_output {
            type                    "pulse"
            name                    "btheadset"
            device                  "btheadset"
            format                  "44100:16:2"
   }

So thank you very much, you telepathically solve my problem ^^

Re: The ultimate MPD guide

OK.
So I will tell you what I've done... I've checked that Pulse Audio module is running in Blueman (in SID, v1.23 have Pulse Audio version check problem - it checks minor version only, so Pulse Audio 1.0 or 2.0 raise exception "PulseAudio too old, required 0.9.15 or higher" - need manual edition, Ubuntu have fixed version at Launchpad), and in its configuration I've checked "set audio stream to Bluetooth" and "set Bluetooth as default mixer".
That's it.
No messing with ALSA - all Pulse Audio.
In fact I have no ~/.asoundrc or /etc/asound.conf at all.

Now, when normal, audio is going from audio output of my laptop. But when Bluetooth headset is connected, then all audio is going to it.

But for that, MPD must be run as "per user", not as system service.
If MPD is run as system service, then it opens it's own, MPD user owned Pulse Audio session, and that have nothing in common with your user Pulse Audio session and Bluetooth session running on it. So, it would be "no love" with headset.

My working MPD config have this as output only:

audio_output {
	type			"pulse"
	name			"My Pulse Output"
}

and I use "UNIX socket" as MPD control channel.

Re: The ultimate MPD guide

Ok, thank you for these details. The weird think is that I tried mpd with the same configuration I now have 3 days ago and it didn't work (maybe I've changed something without noticing it...).

Re: The ultimate MPD guide

Hey,

thanks for this great guide. I installed mpd, mpc and ncmpcpp. My problem is, I dont get any sound when trying to play a soundfile. In ncmpcpp if i hit enter it tries to play the file for a mili second and then switches back to [paused].

Any suggestions?

Re: The ultimate MPD guide

Did you set password for MPD and use same in ncmpcpp?
Did you set same host as in MPD?
Did you set audio output in ncmpcpp?

I don't use ncmpcpp but just installed it, had little problem with finding of config file, set host in it only and it works out of the box.

Then post your mpd conf here. Maybe we need a look at your audio output.

# file:// protocol) or streaming files over an accepted protocol.
#
music_directory		"/home/sascha/music"
#
# This setting sets the MPD internal playlist directory. The purpose of this
# directory is storage for playlists created by MPD. The server will use 
# playlist files not created by the server but only if they are in the MPD
# format. This setting defaults to playlist saving being disabled.

Re: The ultimate MPD guide

If I see correct, you have not enabled any audio output. And, I think it is not that important if you use Alsa or Pulse as Pulse runs on top of Alsa anyway. So, if at least you would specify Alsa as sound output, it would be enough.
Btw, Waldorf comes with Pulse by default, if that is the release you use.

You should take a look at my how-to again, about sound output and maybe use this instead of localhost just in case:

bind_to_address                       "127.0.0.1"

Re: The ultimate MPD guide

Since it is for local playback on same machine, then maybe instead of network host (even local) use UNIX socket - just set path to the file in "bind_to_address", eg.:

bind_to_address               "/home/sascha/.mpd/socket"

Tried both solutions, still same problem.

ERROR: problems opening audio device

After changing to

bind_to_address               "/home/sascha/.mpd/socket"

I got

Re: The ultimate MPD guide

MPD is a server.
It listen for commands on "bind_to_address" address.
If you set it to "localhost" then you must set client (ncmpcpp) to connect to "localhost". If you set it to "socket" then you must set client to connect to "socket" instead.

So again. Post of your "~/.mpdconf" and "~/.ncmpcpp/config" and a result of "aplay -l" and "pactl stat".

PS: had some problem with the bind address but it got corrected after I replaced 'localhost' with the hostname from the remote computer where MPD is running.


How are we going to explain the future generations that "it was good for economy" when they'll be unable to farm their soils, breath some fresh air or drink the water?...

Re: The ultimate MPD guide

Much thanks for all the help. mpd is working great so far for me. I am using ncmpcpp because it offers the least amount of comfort I need to play my music files. Still I have one problem. I want to use the tag editior on multiple files, e.g. for all files from album to set the right Artist etc. Is it possible? I could do that with foobar2k...

Thanks in advance.

Re: The ultimate MPD guide

Go to the tag editor (screen 7), just go to artist for mass tagging, not into the right section where you can do it on individual files, of a specific disc from the file directory e.g. and put the artist, hit enter, save, and that's it. The tag editor is really powerful. I hope I understood you right.
Or from the playlist view (screen 2), hit E and it will redirect you to the tag editor. You can even retrieve tags from the file names.

Re: The ultimate MPD guide

Thanks, I am really blown away by this audio player mpd + ncmpcpp. It offers everything I need, with a nice cli control.

Much thanks for this guide and all the help provided! I no longer feel the need for foobar2k beeing useable on linux. wink

Re: The ultimate MPD guide

Hey,

I followed your guide setting up mpd. Everything was fine until i tried to add some music. When i type

mpc add ~/music/Album/Title.mp3

I get the following error message:

error: directory or file not found

When i type

mpc ls | mpc add

it works, but it adds the whole music directory to the playlist (quite a few songs)
When i add the directory option to mpc ls it returns the same error as mentioned above.

Loading playlists doesn't work too. mpc load /music/Album/playlist.m3u returns:

error: No such playlist

I hope someone could help me. I did everything as described in the guide.

Thanks in advance

Re: The ultimate MPD guide

Are you using only mpc?

Are you sure you pointed to the correct music directory and it is in your conf?

I would suggest to use a better client to access your music library like ncmpcpp (my fav) or GMPC. Adding music into the playlist with mpc is confusing for me too, we mentioned it somewhere here.

Edit: If you have already playlists that you did with other players or downloaded from the web and they are not in your mpd music directory, you have to put them into:

~/.mpd/playlists 

then you can access them.

Re: The ultimate MPD guide

Thanks for the quick help.

Moving the playlists to ~/.mpd/playlists seems to work, but only for one special playlist. lets call it Lindsey Stirling (don't laugh at me, it's great chillout music)

All files listed in the playlist are playing well. The files are in ~/music/LS  (~/music is the music directory as set up in the mpd.conf)
Other files don't play at all. They are in the same music directory and have the same permissions (777 for testing purposes).
When i create a playlist with

find ~/music/Children\ Of\ Bodom/ -name "*.mp3" >> ~/.mpd/playlists/COB.m3u

the files are added to the playlist but ncmpcpp keeps telling me that the playlist is empty. I did exactly the same for Lindsey Stirling and it works. I'm kind of confused about this.
Do the mp3 files need special bitrates to be recognized by mpd?

(sorry for bad english - not my native language)
