Tidal music service integration

Project description

Latest PyPI version Number of PyPI downloads

Tidal music service integration.


Install by running:

pip install Mopidy-Tidal
pip3 install Mopidy-Tidal

In case you are upgrading your Mopidy-Tidal installation from the latest git sources, make sure to do a force upgrade from the source root:

sudo python3 install --force


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

enabled = true
quality = LOSSLESS

Quality can be set to LOSSLESS, HIGH or LOW. Hi_RES(master) is currently not supported. Lossless quality (FLAC) requires Tidal HiFi Subscription.

For High and Low quality be sure to have installed gstreamer bad-plugins, eg.

sudo apt-get install gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad

This is mandatory to be able to play m4a streams.

OAuth Flow

Using the new OAuth flow, you now have to visit a link to connect the mopidy app to your login. When you restart the Mopidy server, check the latest systemd logs and find a line like:

journalctl -u mopidy | tail -5
Visit to log in, the code will expire in 300 seconds``

Go to that link in your browser, approve it, and that should be it. Note that this is a blocking action, so Mopidy will not load until you approve the application. The OAuth session will be reloaded automatically when Mopidy is restarted. However, it will be necessary to perform these steps again if/when the session expires.
