Any recommendations on media_player software for the raspberry pi?

I’m looking for something to serve as an endpoint for:


Are you running anything on the pi?

Not right now, but I’m also looking to put ledfx on it. Home assistant is running on a different box.

Picoreplayer then.

I tried picoreplayer but it was not happy with the ytube/youtube audio streams. It plays a split second of garbled sound and then stops. The text to speech worked fine though.

Any ideas? (or a different suggestion?)

This issue comments suggests mpd and Kodi both work.

Mpd should be fairly lightweight. Kodi is feature rich but you’ll likely want a monitor/TV attached to configure it.
