Volumio Plugins Collection

AmpSwitch Plugin

This plugin turns on/off a GPIO port depending on the status of volumio. Using AmpSwitch, Volumio can automatically turn an external amplifier on when you press “Play” and turn it off when you press stop/pause. A delay can be specified to avoid premature switching.

Status: stable

Note: I have not yet tested every scenario, just some quick tests. Also some plugins are not yet confirmed to be working:

  • Qobuz (but I believe it uses MPD)

Thanks to Kristian I’ve managed to patch the spop configuration, this way the ‘native’ Spotify plugin is supported too.

Backup & Restore Data

This plugin provides a easy way to backup and restore your device data locally.
Useful before/after re-imaging to new Volumio version, or deploying a setup across multiple devices.
Archived data become available through Volumio’s SMB share, so that it can be copied both ways to preserve and re-deploy.

Please note that sometimes, due to timing issues, the plugin will show as not installed successfully. This is a cosmetic error that I will fix in the near future (it’s actually a bug in Volumio; it uploads the plugin multiple times). <- should be fixed, I will investigate!

Alpha testing was successful, plugins can also be installed.

The first start of the service might take a few seconds, please be patient. Also, the button to open a new tab for the LMS web-interface only works with Volumio 2.296+.

NB: A Squeezelite plugin has been released today (11-09-2017)

Play on connect
This plugin allows to play the queue when a specific IP is detected on your network, and stop the play when this IP disappears.
Very convenient to hear your favorite track when you’ re back home, and to never forget to stop the music when you leave :wink:

Because the pushState pushes are hard to capture in a fashionable manner I had to write a timer function, I’m not yet fully trusting the timer, but since you can easily delete scrobbles I’m opening the project up for testing.

As the documentation/description states, you don’t need to save your password, an MD5 hash is saved to be used as an authentication token, this suffices. You do need an API key which you can request here; remember to save it! There’s not way to query the given token again!

Happy testing and please provide as much info as you can gather when you’re having troubles. In the plugin you can enable debug logging, which will explode the amount of logging the plugin does.

PS: documentation will follow, but I thought many people would be able to test it without much info. You just need to fill in your info. Saving your password is not needed, nor recommended (because it’s saved in plain text).

[Update 23-10-2017]
Webradio songs can now be scrobbled, see latest update (1.1.x)

[Update 01-12-2017]
Scrobbling for LMS will be incorporated in the Squeezelite plugin, if it uses the volatile state songs can be scrobbled easily.

[Update 20-05-2018]
Scrobbling for Radio paradise and all Spotify plugins has been enabled.

Onedrive Music Library

Plugin for browsing and playing audio files stored on Microsoft Onedrive. The authentication procedure requires some URL-copy-pasting, as explained on the config-page, but should be easy enough.

Personal Radio

This music service plugin provides Korean radio(KBS, MBC, SBS) and Linn radio. KBS, SBS and MBC are very popular commercial radio station in Korea. Korean radios can’t be added as a Volumio webradio because the streaming URL have one time access token. If you interested in Korean radio, you can enjoy this plugin.

There are many channels in KBS, SBS and MBC radio. I’ll introduce some of popular radio channels as follows.​

  • KBS1 FM is a classic channel in Korean language
  • KBS2 FM and MBC FM4U channel are a K-pop, Pop music and entertainment in Korean language.
  • KBS World channel designed for an international audience and the radio program consists of K-Pop, news, Korean culture with English or other languages.

Platform: all platform includes Raspberry Pi and x86 (no platform specific codes)
