Mopidy extension that plays sound from YouTube

Project Description

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
