The Source repository is on framagit.org.
Current version (tar files):
All the binary upmpdcli packages listed below install an appropriate systemd or init script to automatically start the daemon. For trying things out, just installing the package on the host where MPD is running will get you a usable system.
If MPD is not running on the same host, you need need to edit the
/etc/upmpdcli.conf to set the MPD host name or
You may also want to edit the configuration file to set the UPnP renderer friendly name, for ease of use if you have several upmpdcli instances on the network.
You will find Debian packages for different releases and hardware architectures. If your configuration is not covered, you can build your own using the source packages, which is not hard. See a sample build sequence here.
The raspbian repositories for stretch and buster also work for regular ARM Debian (e.g. armbian), and the Buster one also has arm64 packages.
Streaming services: the streaming services plugins are provided by separate packages (upmpdcli-spotify, upmpdcli-qobuz, upmpdcli-tidal), and you need to install them separately.
|December 2020: updating the expired key. Because the format of the sources list file slightly changed to conform to newer Debian practises (using a signed-by attribute), you need both to import the repository keyring, and update your sources file.|
Download the appropriate file for your release, and copy it into the
Debian 8.x Jessie
Debian 9.x Stretch
Debian 10.x Buster
Debian 11.x Bullseye
Raspbian/other Debian ARM Stretch
Raspbian/other Debian ARM Buster
Rasbpian/other Debian ARM Bullseye
Finally, install the packages. Except for upmpdcli itself, all the packages are independant, only install what you need !:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install upmpdcli # Optional streaming services sudo apt-get install upmpdcli-qobuz sudo apt-get install upmpdcli-spotify # Optional Songcast gateway sudo apt-get install sc2mpd # Optional Songcast Receiver control web interface sudo apt-get install scweb
|It seems that the incompatibilies which existed between the ARM Debian and Raspbian jessie distributions are gone as from the Stretch (Debian 9) release. If you are running a Debian-based system (such as OSMC) on armhf (e.g. on a Raspberry pi), Stretch or later (Buster) please give the Raspbian repository a try. I’d be interested to hear about successes / failures: firstname.lastname@example.org.|
PPA for production packages:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jean-francois-dockes/upnpp1
Once the PPA is installed, see the Debian section above for the installation instructions.
|If you need to build for a platform not supported by the PPA, you can use the sample Debian build sequence.|
Overlays for upmpdcli and the libraries:
Debian backport repositories for mpd, usually of a newer versions than the official repo’s and configured slightly differently. Sometimes older version instead.
|If you have no problem with the standard version, don’t look for trouble and don’t install this one, it’s only, and only sometimes, useful in some quite exotic cases (e.g. high bitrate uncompressed streams from HTTP and L16).|
I have deleted the Ubuntu PPA, because recent mpd releases are ok, and Ubuntu users usually run a recent release.
The repositories currently have either:
mpd release 0.19.19, with libsndfile and libaudiofile disabled (in my experience, these libs only bring trouble, and it’s better to use ffmpeg for everything), and a patch for supporting L16.
Vanilla mpd 0.20.x, (no source change), with libsndfile and libaudiofile disabled.
The repository currently has mpd 0.20.23 built for Debian
Buster x86-64 and armhf. This can be useful because of a DSD
issue in the current 0.21 package. Because the version is
older than the system’s, you need to jump a few hoops: after
adding the repository, list the available versions with
apt-cache showpkg mpd, then install the one you want with
apt install mpd=<theversion>. Example:
apt install mpd=0.20.23-jfd1.
Debian (i386, amd64) and Raspbian (armhf raspberry PI).
For ARM Debian: beware that the Raspbian packages may have dependancies which slightly differ from the equivalent Debian release, and you may have to recompile the source package on Debian.
To use the repository:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install mpd
