O!MPD v1.07

O!MPD v1.07

I’m glad to announce, that (later than normal, but finally) O!MPD 1.07 has been released. You can get it form download page.

Please keep in mind that O!MPD is still under development – all new changes are available on GitHub. You can also report issues and your suggestions there.

Changelog:

  • added support for HighResAudio (thanks to marcbth)
  • added badge with audio format info on album cover (thanks to paradix)
  • added support for Tidal OAuth2 login
  • added ‘Add to Library’ for albums from streaming services (Tidal, HRA)
  • added popularity bar on album cover
  • added displaying lyrics on album cover in ‘Now Playing’ (based on LyricsCore API; also Musixmatch supported)
  • added new popularity category (by album year)
  • compatibility with PHP8
  • fixed bugs

Installation

If you install O!MPD for the 1st time, just follow instructions from here.

Upgrade from previous versions

WARNING!

Version 1.07 modifies structure of DB. This should be harmless, but just in case, please make a copy of your existing DB.

Rename old ompd directory to eg. ompd-old and copy new version to your www root dir.

If you upgrade from v1.06 you can use your previous include/config.inc.php file, but you need to modify it a little bit. There are some new settings – they are in section between NEW IN O!MPD 1.07 and END OF NEW IN O!MPD 1.07. You can copy it from new config file to your previous one and set desired values.

If you upgrade from older versions I’d recommend to edit new config file (include/config.inc.php).

Remember about setting write access to dirs:

  • /ompd/tmp/
  • /ompd/stream/
  • /ompd/cache/

Your existing MySQL database will be used, so you don’t have to worry about things like player configuration, users, etc. (unless you change value of $cfg['mysqli_db'] – then new database will be created).

After configuration is done, open http://www-server-IP-address/ompd/index.php just like in previous versions. If everything is OK, you should now see O!MPD v1.07.

    thank you! for years I’ve prayed for an mpd client that recognizes multiple genres.

    I have a discsubtitle tag (set with beets) for box-set discs. would this ever be supported?

      I’m glad you found O!MPD useful.

      For now I’m not planing to add support for this tag, but I don’t say it will never be added – but it’s rather distant future. Anyway I’ll remember about this tag during rebuilding the update function.

      Thanks for comment and have Happy New Year.
