Sadly not yet. I gave up on it. The reply/view ratio on this forum is not great.

Still waiting for help

I have similar issue. Tried to play an mp3 on heos hs2 via service call

alias: box geluid
  - service: media_player.play_media
      entity_id: media_player.losse_box
      media_content_id: ''
      media_content_type: music
    entity_id: media_player.losse_box
mode: single

Logger gives No issues!

Heos app on my phone shows URLstream.
Cannot play this media. Try again later!
Other message:
Error in playing. Format not supported.

I’m relatively new to Home Assistant and node-red.

On a Heos device, I’m already able to select a source (from Tune-in) and play that radio source, modify the volume and stop the media player

Now I want to play a .mp3 file. I’ve searched several hours. What am I doing wrong? I thought I did everything as explained in the Heos manual.

On my Raspberry pi (ip= there was a folder called media.
I’ve dropped my media file in that folder.


And I can see that my media files appears in the UI of HA . And I can play the .mp3 when clicking on that file


But when calling the service from within the developer’s tool, nothing happens.


This are my parameters
entity_id: media_player.heos_bedroom
media_content_type: “url”
media_content_id: “

What am I doing wrong? I thought I did everything as explained in the Heos manual.

Sorry, mistake:

These are my parameters:

entity_id: media_player.heos_bedroom
media_content_type: “url”
media_content_id: “
