class platypush.plugins.music.mpd.MusicMpdPlugin(host, port=6600)[source]

This plugin allows you to interact with an MPD/Mopidy music server. MPD (https://www.musicpd.org/) is a flexible server-side protocol/application for handling music collections and playing music, mostly aimed to manage local libraries. Mopidy (https://www.mopidy.com/) is an evolution of MPD, compatible with the original protocol and with support for multiple music sources through plugins (e.g. Spotify, TuneIn, Soundcloud, local files etc.).

NOTE: As of Mopidy 3.0 MPD is an optional interface provided by the mopidy-mpd extension. Make sure that you have the extension installed and enabled on your instance to use this plugin with your server.
