MPD Web control

Wed Aug 07, 2013 11:20 am


I have MPD and apache installed on my raspi, using the excellent mpdroid on my tablet to control it.

Unofrtunately mpdroid doesnt seem to support my playlists for a few radio stations.... so I was wondering
if one of you lovely pi people could help me. I have done website html coding for years, have done a little cgi
before, but np php skills. What I want is a web page, maybe displaying the current playing song, maybe a
cover.jpg, the output would be grep'd or cut from output from a system 'mpc' command, but also a few
links/icons to control the mpd, play/pause/next/prev track etc, these would also be simple system 'mpc next'
'mpc prev' commands, but also a few links/icons to select a radio station to play, which would execute a
simple 'mpc' system command sort of like 'mpc clear; mpc add http://url_of_radio_station.pls; mpc play'

Could someone please help and advise of a simple php or html/cgi snippet to achieve this

I will obviously share my setup when complete, in the excellent opensource/raspi way, also maybe with a
boot image !!!!

I was looking at this the other day and found this site useful.
there is a section for web clients.

I've been working on an internet radio based on the code at His hardware is based on the RPi plus the LCD PiPlate but the python code driving the PiPlate could give you some help. On my own project I have extended the code to display and play mp3 files as well. There is a Youtube video for it as well and I think there is a link on the site.

I tried many WebUIs with MPD and at the end the WebUI called rompr i consider the best...

It has also a "Smartphone" Web-UI I think..
