MPD Web control

Wed Aug 07, 2013 11:20 am

Hiya

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 !!!!

Regards

Hi
I've been working on an internet radio based on the code at http://usualpanic.com. 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...

HEre a link: https://sourceforge.net/projects/rompr/
It has also a "Smartphone" Web-UI I think..
