Lovelace: Mini Media Player

I am still learning and by no means an expert, but I thought it meant full stop for the . and select for the :

Hi everyone

Thanks for the player Karl!

Wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of putting a custom Service when hitting the power button?

Use case is by now I think starting to be frequent: Sonos system, so created service to toggle some smart plugs to turn off and on.

Is the Universal media player the only way to go?

Thanks in advance

I think so, but that isn’t a huge hassle.

Artwork only shows on 1 random speaker?

Hello! Using HomePod Mini’s. All working. Just noticed on dashboard that only 1 speaker shows artwork when all playing in a group. Anything I did wrong or that I can change to fix?

Hi,

is it possible to insert/replace a drop down (Harmony activities) in the source drop down menu of the mini media player?

I would like to hide all the controls, the icon and the title in this card. Can somone tells me how to do this with card_mod or css?

The mini media player already has this function built in. Does that work for you?

type: custom:mini-media-player
entity: media_player.xxxx
hide:
  controls: true
  icon: true
  info: true

  volume: true

All the fields you can hide.

Showing off and asking a question about shortcuts. Is it possible create a light switch using the shortcuts feature? For my ambilight, I’m currently using a service toggle for a script but it doesn’t show on & off states.

Aside that it’s still work in progress:

  • touchpad doesn’t look as good in light mode
  • PS4 artwork material cover isn’t consistent

Hi,

I have a lg soundbar integration. This soundbar is also integrated with google cast. So, I have have two entities :

  • Lg soundbar entity. With mini media player, I can modify source and sound level but artwork deosn’t display when I listen music on spotify.
  • Google cast entity. With media player I can see artwork when I play music with spotify, increase sound level, change music. But when source is set to hdmi, no way to increase sound level. It’s like the soundbar is power off.

Is there a possibility to merge mini media player with this 2 entities ?

The First media player with google cast entity, the second with lg soundbar entity when I play music with spotify.

The First media player with google cast entity, the second with lg soundbar entity when I play movie on my tv.

I would like the sound slider when I play a movie or music on spotify and the artwork when I play music and the possibility to change the source.

Do you have an idea ?

Thank you

I use a Moode entity (DLNA) in combination with this Mini Media Player. I initiate the music from Music Assistant, choosing the Player (DLNA). I also have the Moode available as MPD entity.

If the Mini Media Player is configured for the DLNA entity:

  • The buttons on the front don’t function (can’t call service …).
  • When i klick on the Player name and the pop-up shows, the buttons on the pop-up do function.

Is there a difference in the buttons on the pop-up and on the face of the card, and how can i get the buttons on the face of the card working again (because it used to work).

If i use Mini Media Player with the MPD entity, i can use the buttons on the face of the card, but in that case i do not get the nice artwork.

Hello,

I have my player setup for my Alexa, to play whatever song I type in the text field. works great

However, when I click on stop, the music DOES stop, but the song info does not go away. Does anyone know what I could do to fix this?

I’ve tried the idle commands, but cant seem to code it right. If that even works with Alexa

Thanks

I have 2 input_select drop down menus

Can someone tell me how I can make the bottom drop down change to amazon, when i select amazon in the top drop down?

Here’s my current iteration and how I’m using the Mini Media Player card. I have a Yamaha MusicCast system in the house so I wanted to be able to group players throughout the house. I have three Lenovo ThinkSmart tablets located in three of the four locations (the garage location I just use myself from my phone but sometimes I like to have the music from the house playing out there too). For the main master player, I have a Yamaha WXC-50 MusicCast Streaming Pre-Amplifier set to be “Media Player”. So either myself or my wife will play music from Spotify on our phone and select “Media Player” as the speaker destination. Then we just go to one of the rooms in the house where the Media Control Tablets are and select the rooms we want to play music in. Each room has separate volume controls and the volume control on the iPhone that is playing the source material will increment or decrease the volume throughout the home.

Here’s my interface dashboard:

An automation that sets the second one on changing of the first one?
So it would trigger like:

trigger:
  - platform: state
    entity_id:
      - input_select.number_one

And call input_select.select_option on the second one with the state of the first one.
Untested but overall something like this which takes the state of the trigger (the first input) when it changes and sets the value of the second one with the state it went to (the selection):

description: ""
mode: single
trigger:
  - platform: state
    entity_id:
      - input_select.number_one
condition: []
action:
  - service: input_select.select_option
    metadata: {}
    data:
      option: "{{trigger.to_state.state}}"
    target:
      - input_select.number_two

That actually worked beautifully thank you

I have one more thing to finish this. Is it possible to change the icon based on the entithy state. ON an Entity card.

I know how to do the if/else thing on mushroom template card but how about a normal entityi card?

Using the state-switch card would be one way, you could show different cards depending on the state.

There is probably 20 ways more to “skin-that-cat” but that card I use frequently. Essentially,

if this state
   show this
if that state
   show that
... and so on ...

Obvious this and that could be entity card with different icons.

Hi, Is there a way to reserve the space on the card so that it does not shrink when nothing is being played, for example by reserving the space with the background image?

Thanks in advance

Hi, is it possible to add buttons shown on the picture below mini media player to shortcuts? so the art work would be behind them?

Is it possible to have de same thing will th this card ? : when i click on a speaker, l’ d like the speaker joins the active speaker.

Thanks
