Lovelace: Mini Media Player


#369

Okay, I don’t know how I feel about adding this. As @hdaalder mentioned on songs favorite playlists are accessible int he source menu.
Could possibly add this in the future, could be a neat feature.
It’s certainly possible to implement and could be made to work pretty universally, if it’s an actual playlist or just a media url shouldn’t matter. Would require the user to specify content type, media url and name for each entry of the dropdown list in the card configuration.

If anyone is interested in possibly coding this and contributing it through a PR, that would be great.

Strange, never heard of that issue, I’m using denonavr myself and never had the issue.
The card should render the player as off if state === off and as unavailable if state === unavailable.
What does the entity attributes look like when it’s off and what’s the state shown in dev-info?

Try “reinstalling” the card, delete previous files and follow the instructions again. Otherwise try clearing cache / restart HA.

The card will use the default language of the tts service, You can specify the default language of the tts in your configuration.yaml, I guess language would be it for Italian.

tts:
  - platform: google
    language: 'sv'

I’m not that familiar with Sonos, If they are grouped, doesn’t changing source on one of the speakers in the group change them all?

I don’t have any plans to add support for grouping/ungrouping Sonos through the card.


#370

nothing to do, keep giving me the card of the first photo


#371

What doesn’t work? I see mini-media-players in both photos. Is it card-modder that doesn’t work?


#372

Yes, right. if you see the first picture there are some gray rectangles around the players that should not be there


#373

They are there intentionally, that’s the card background and the color is based on the theme you are using, I did however move the the background from the ha-card to the player class a few updates ago.

I’ll make the card background transparent in next update when group: true is set, should fix the issue you are having.


#374

wow thank you very much!!


#375

If you are switching between single play and groups it would be awesome…

#380

I’m not sure what the problem could be, are you nesting the card inside a conditional card or entity-filter? Do you have the same issue when using the default media-control card, that it disappear?


#381

No nesting, and yes the same problem with the default controls. I even thought it was normal default behavior…


#382

Okay, no idea what the issue could be then, sorry.
I suggest you open a separate topic for your issue, I think you’ll have better luck getting help that way.


#383

Sure, no problem. Thanks for your time.


#384

Is there a way to suppress full-cover when there is no cover (like often with streaming services)?


#385

Yes, that’s the default behaviour for full-cover and all other artwork options.
The artwork is only displayed when the player has the attribute entity_picture and when entity_picture isn’t empty.


#386

Ah, ok, the I guess the entity_picture is not properly defined by the ones I am using. Thanks for your great work!


#387

That’s interesting, which media player components are you seeing this issue with?
I’ve had this issue with denonavr specifically, where it sometimes seem to set the entity_picture attribute even though there’s no actual artwork/cover available. Might not be an issue with the component however, could just as likely be the denon receiver.

Unfortunately I have no way of checking if the exposed entity_picture is actually real or not, so I can’t fix this issue, unless anyone has an idea?


#388

It‘s with a Sonos.
