SoundCloud extension for Mopidy

Project Description

Mopidy extension for playing music from SoundCloud.


Debian/Ubuntu/Raspbian: Install the mopidy-soundcloud package from

sudo apt-get install mopidy-soundcloud

Arch Linux: Install the mopidy-soundcloud package from AUR:

brew install mopidy-soundcloud

Else: Install the dependencies listed above yourself, and then install the package from PyPI:

pip install Mopidy-SoundCloud

If you’re having trouble with audio playback from SoundCloud, make sure you have the “ugly” plugin set from GStreamer installed for MP3 support. The package is typically named gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly or similar, depending on OS and distribution. The package isn’t a strict requirement for Mopidy’s core, so you may be missing it.


  1. You must register for a user account at

  2. You need a SoundCloud authentication token for Mopidy from

  3. Add the authentication token to the mopidy.conf config file:

    auth_token = 1-1111-1111111
    explore_songs = 25
