mpd platform allows you to control a Music Player Daemon from Home Assistant. Unfortunately you will not be able to manipulate the playlist (add or delete songs) or add transitions between the songs.
Even though no playlist manipulation is possible, it is possible to use the play_media service to load an existing saved playlist as part of an automation or scene.
To add MPD to your installation, add the following to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry media_player: - platform: mpd host: IP_ADDRESS
- host (Required): IP address of the Host where Music Player Daemon is running.
- port (Optional): Port of the Music Player Daemon. Defaults to 6600.
- name (Optional): Name of your Music Player Daemon. Defaults to “MPD”.
- password (Optional): Password for your Music Player Daemon.
Example script to load a saved playlist called “DeckMusic” and set the volume:
relaxdeck: sequence: - service: media_player.play_media data: entity_id: media_player.main media_content_type: playlist media_content_id: DeckMusic - service: media_player.volume_set data: entity_id: media_player.main volume_level: 0.60
