Mopidy extension for controlling music playback from virtual input device

Installation

Install by running:

pip install Mopidy-EvtDev

Or, if available, install the Debian/Ubuntu package from apt.mopidy.com.

Configuration

Before starting Mopidy, you must add configuration for Mopidy-EvtDev to your Mopidy configuration file:

[evtdev]
# Location of virtual input devices
dev_dir = /dev/input
# List of virtual devices to open which can be either their path, name or physical address
# Leave blank to listen to all devices
devices = 00:11:67:D2:AB:EE, AT Translated Set 2 keyboard, isa0060/serio0/input0
# Refresh period in seconds to check for new input devices
refresh = 10

To permit mopidy to read virtual input devices without root permissions, you need to add the following into /etc/udev/rules.d/99-input.rules:

KERNEL==”event*”, NAME=”input/%k”, MODE=”660”, GROUP=”audio”

If you are concerned by security, then create a separate group name and add mopidy as a member to that group. E.g.,

KERNEL==”event*”, NAME=”input/%k”, MODE=”660”, GROUP=”input”

Otherwise, just run mopidy as root to avoid any additional configuration requirements.
