cmus


The cmus platform allows you to control a cmus music player on a remote or local machine from Home Assistant.

To add cmus to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file if running locally it will look like:

# Example configuration.yaml entry

  - platform: cmus

If cmus is running on a remote server:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
media_player:
  - platform: cmus
    host: IP_ADDRESS_OF_CMUS_PLAYER
    password: YOUR_PASSWORD
