SomaFM extension for Mopidy

Project Description

Mopidy extension for playing music from SomaFM.



This package is available from

This can be installed by running:

sudo apt-get install mopidy-somafm


Install by running:

pip install Mopidy-SomaFM


The extension requires that the Mopidy-Stream extension is enabled. It is bundled with Mopidy and enabled by default, so it will be available unless you’ve explicitly disabled it.

You may change preferred quality and encoding in your Mopidy configuration file:

encoding = aac
quality = highest
  • encoding must be either aac, mp3 or aacp
  • quality must be one of highest, fast, slow, firewall

If the preferred quality is not available for a channel, the extension will fallback to fast. And afterwards if the preferred encoding is not available for that quality, it will fallback to using mp3. It seems that all channels support the combination fast + mp3

You can also choose to use the channel DJ as the reported track artist (default behavior):

dj_as_artist = true
