Changing the Volumio logo in the webUI and more...

Hi Guys :mrgreen:

A few questions for something I’m quite interested in for My Volumio Powered player:

  • How can one change the Volumio Logo thats on the top left corner of the UI?
  • Changing the colours from the standard green to any other colour?
  • The splash screen showed when you start the player, how can one place their own?

You should probably get in touch with Volumio for a custom solution - is a good starting point :slight_smile:

Hi There,

go to the following folder on WINSCP after logging in…


replace the two png files with your own design… ensure that they are 170x50 and saved with same name…

Presto, after a reboot you’ll have your own logo…

Now, how do I change the splash screen on boot and the centre logo when nothing is in the playlist and volumio is idle…? Any ideas?

I hope this is not illegal, but since we’re using ‘Open Source’ software, I guess it’s ok. Otherwise, let me know!!

For commercial purpose:

To brand your Volumio to your own taste: (for non-commercial use)

  1. Volumio Logo is the volumio-logo.png-file in /volumio/http/www/app/themes/volumio/assets/variants/volumio/graphics/
  2. the default album-art (when nothing is playing) is the default.jpg/png file in /volumio/app/plugins/miscellanea/albumart/
  3. set a pageTitle in /volumio/http/www/app/themes/volumio/assets/variants/volumio/volumio-settings.json
  4. Remove the shopping link in the pull-down menu of the GUI: look in the file /volumio/app/mainmenu.json and remove the line with ‘Volumio Shop’ (and maybe put in a link of your own) :wink:
  5. Changing the default green colour: this is more tricky, you’ll have to find and replace the color-values in the stylesheets. The location is /volumio/http/www/styles/ and there are the .css files. Look for the following color-attributes:
    and replace it with your preferred color-code, like #136F9A

As an addition, you can put WebRadio station URL’s in /data/favourites/my-web-radio (in xml-format) like this:

[ { "service": "webradio", "name": "JazzFM UK", "uri": "" } ]

and change the /etc/motd for your ssh-users.

All the above tasks have to be done after every update of Volumio, so you might want to create some scripts for it. :wink:
Also, update via the GUI doesn’t work anymore, you first have to delete userdata before updating and then start all over again.

Just wondering, how does the Qbuzz and Tidal integration work on the devices you offer from your website?

Qobuz and Tidal services are enabled with a subscription.

Please verify, that when using this customization for a, let’s say, popular bar, that you do not violate any laws.
In that case it may not be “private use” anymore…

do you where i can find the notification when you change song for example to modify it? thanks

It’s called toast, or toast-success
If you’d like to change it’s colour, look at the rgba-code (because of transparancy) in the app-stylesheet file.

something like:

yeah to be honest i found it and i made it also blue. thanks

I looked at that, but it was rather pointless because it’s only for me :smile_cat: but if I ever I want to go “mainstream” I would have to look at that option.

This is pretty useful! thank you, going to start my build soon, looking forward to the personal customization :smiley:

@dvo I just looked at the project now, I think it looks fantastic!

Hey guys, so I downloaded the UI files from Github which was posted by Volumio themselves, I have done the logo replacements, but the one struggle I’m having is to find where to change the UI colours, as I’m doing the UI to match my colour scheme at home, as @Nico suggested, I tried to locate /volumio/http/www/styles/, but have not been successful, is there anyway I can get to this?

in the UI of
you can set some prefixed colors… instructions in the zip :slight_smile: have fun
soon there will update.

beware that if you alter files by hand you can’t update volumio any more…

Hey Guys, so my Personal Music streamer project is taking off quite nicely! so thank you to everyone for all the assistance.

The only thing I’m stuck with is changing the boot logo, Help please :grin:

the problem is if you mess with that you could not update any more for shure…
