[SOLVED] Web server for covers on mpdroid.

Postby manmax » Mon Jan 20 2014 15:19

Hello michelangelo and everyone.

I will use mpdroid to control volumio and i know it cas use webserver to display local covers.
I try to install lighttpd but of course port 80 is already in use.

If 80 is in use and according to the fact volumio have a webGui, there is already a webserver running.

Can i use this post for raspyfi ?

http://www.raspyfi.com/forum/raspyfi-in ... y-1/#p1656

Idea is to virtual link folders, so mpdroid could find covers.

Is the webserver in volumio and raspyfi the same ?

regards.

PS: michelangello, My 4 years son is found of Teenage mutant ninja turtles so each time i read your name....^^

You'll be glad to konw that it worked.

It's the simplest way to have covers in mpdroid. just add a link beetwen mpd folder and www folder and configure it in mpdroid setup.

omg, thank you so much for this link.
worked in seconds. Now mpdroid is really nice-looking.
Automatic downloaded Internetcovers were crappy and wrong most times.

Thanks.

Tip: Be sure to check the box "use large cover art tiles... [experimental]" for HighRes Covers in mpdroid.
I inserted 1000px*1000px Covers to my folders and on Galaxy S4 with FullHD display it looks just amazing!

I am glad to read that there is a solution!

But unfortunately i am to stupid for linux.

Can someone explain me how to "add a link beetwen mpd folder and www folder and configure it in mpdroid setup" ?

  • SSH to Volumio:
    ln -s /var/lib/mpd/music /var/www/covers
  • mpdroid Settings - Cover art settings:
    - check: Download local cover art
    - in Path to music enter: covers
    - in Cover filename enter: folder.jpg

Let me start by saying that I am admittedly somewhat of a noob on linux... I was wondering if anyone else has had issues with setting up this web server in nginx? I am able to execute the first command above, but can still not get access to the server, either in mpod or a browser. When I try to access in a browser (volumio.local/covers), I get a "403 Forbidden nginx/1.2.1" message. Something to do with permissions possibly, I don't know?

Thanks for the help!

Hello

I use Mpad and Mpdroid on my phone to control Volumio (installed on a Raspberry Pi) but i can't read the local cover.
I tried to follow what i read on the forum but it doesn't work.

I tried to do this :
SSH to Volumio:
ln -s /var/lib/mpd/music /var/www/covers
And i get the answer : "failed to create symboliuc link /var/www/covers : Permission denied.

In Mpad or my configuration is :
- Local cover : [IPVolumio]/music
And my music is under Genre/Artist/Album with a folder.jpg in each albuml folder. Of course i indicate to Mpad or Mpdroid to find "folder.jpg".
My music si stored on a NAS connected to my Raspberry.

Could someone give me the procedure to use the local cover with this configuration ?

Thanks a lot for your help

Regards

Bertrand
