Synopsis

Description

Mopidy is a music server which can play music both from multiple sources, like your local hard drive, radio streams, and from Spotify and SoundCloud. Searches combines results from all music sources, and you can mix tracks from all sources in your play queue. Your playlists from Spotify or SoundCloud are also available for use.

The mopidy command is used to start the server.

Options

--help, -h

Show help message and exit.

--version

Show Mopidy’s version number and exit.

--quiet, -q

Show less output: warning level and higher.

--verbose, -v

Show more output. Repeat up to four times for even more.

--save-debug-log

Save debug log to the file specified in the logging/debug_file config value, typically ./mopidy.log.

--config <file|directory>

Specify config files and directories to use. To use multiple config files or directories, separate them with a colon. The later files override the earlier ones if there’s a conflict. When specifying a directory, all files ending in .conf in the directory are used.

--option <option>, -o <option>

Specify additional config values in the section/key=value format. Can be provided multiple times.

Examples

To start the music server, run:

mopidy

To start the server with an additional config file, that can override configs set in the default config files, run:

mopidy --config ./my-config.conf

To start the server and change a config value directly on the command line, run:

mopidy --option mpd/enabled=false

The --option flag may be repeated multiple times to change multiple configs:

mopidy -o mpd/enabled=false -o spotify/bitrate=320

The mopidy config output shows the effect of the --option flags:

mopidy -o mpd/enabled=false -o spotify/bitrate=320 config
