Support for MPD Output command


#1

MPD supports selecting different outputs. Would be nice if this would be supported in home-assistant. Then multi-room audio control would be much easier.


#2

Moved to feature requests


#3

Massive +1.

Output selection and individual volume control of those outputs would be amazing.


#4

Why isn’t it most wanted feature? It would make multiroom management so easy! Official multiroom solution doesn’t allow to manage clients, isn’t it?


#5

Because i Use forked-daapd with several airplay speakers and forked-daapd has a rest interface as well I implemented the multi speakers with input sliders via rest.

This is however not elegant and a bit hacky. Proper support for forked-daapd would be way better.


#6

Hi snizzleorg - would you be willing to post your config for this? Thank you!


#7

See here: Dacp / daapd / iTunes support

this is not only mine which is messy but also the config of @ptrsnja which seems to be much neater


#8

Thanks. And have either you or @ptrsnja got “Google Say” working? I’m using Hass so my forked-daapd is obviously on another Pi.


#9

@daneboom I’m not understanding your question. Are you asking if I’ve got voice control over forked daapd, I do not. I’m using the Android app “retune” to control playback. If you use an iPhone, you can use the native iTunes remote app.

Sorry for being unclear. I was referring to this:


#11

I’m using siri. But of course at the moment hass.io does not provide a media-player component so I cannot say increase volume or something like that. I configured switches for my airplay devices so I can enable speakers via siri…
