Mopidy extension that plays sound from YouTube.


Make sure you already have the GStreamer plugins, especially the “bad” collection of plugins. For example, on Debian/Ubuntu you can install it by running:

sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad

Install by running:

pip install Mopidy-YouTube


No configuration needed. The only supported config value is youtube/enabled which can be set to false to disable the extension.


Simply use search for filename in your MPD client or add YouTube URL to playlist prefixed by yt:.

Example video:


Example for playlist:



If resolving of URIs stops working, always try to update the pafy library first:

pip install --upgrade pafy
