Introduction

GMediaRender is a UPnP™ media renderer for POSIX®-compliant systems, such as GNU/Linux® or UNIX®. It implements the server component that provides UPnP controllers a means to render media content (audio, video and images) from a UPnP media server.

Debian Wheezy: Audio with 2nd Sound Card

# Check sound card
aplay -l

# Config 2nd sound card for aplay, add .asoundrc file under home directory
nano ~/.asoundrc
defaults.pcm.card 1
defaults.pcm.device 0
defaults.ctl.card 1

# Config 2nd sound card for mpd, update /etc/mpd.conf
nano /etc/mpd.conf
audio_output {
type “alsa”
name “My ALSA Device”
— device “hw:0,0” # optional
++ device “hw:1,0”
format “44100:16:2” # optional
mixer_device “default”
mixer_control “PCM”
mixer_index “0”
}

Debian Wheezy: install ncmpcpp, Ncurses Based MPD Client

# Install ncmpcpp client
apt-get install ncmpcpp

# Update config of ncmpcpp
nano ~/.ncmpcpp/config
mpd_host = “192.168.127.72”
#
mpd_port = “6600”
#
mpd_music_dir = “/share/mpd/music/”
#
mpd_connection_timeout = “5”
#
mpd_crossfade_time = “3”
#
##### music visualizer #####
##
## Note: In order to make music visualizer work you’ll
## need to use mpd fifo output, whose format parameter
## has to be set to 44100:16:1. Example configuration:
## (it has to be put into mpd.conf)
##
##audio_output {
## type “fifo”
## name “My FIFO”
## path “/tmp/mpd.fifo”
## format “44100:16:1”
##}
##
#
visualizer_fifo_path = “/tmp/mpd.fifo”
#
##
## Note: Below parameter is needed for ncmpcpp
## to determine which output provides data for
## visualizer and thus allow syncing between
## visualization and sound as currently there
## are some problems with it.
##
#
visualizer_output_name = “My FIFO”
#
##
## Note: To enable spectrum frequency visualization
## you need to compile ncmpcpp with fftw3 support.
##
#
visualizer_type = “spectrum” (spectrum/wave)
#
##### system encoding #####
##
## ncmpcpp should detect your charset encoding
## but if it failed to do so, you can specify
## charset encoding you are using here.
##
## Note: You can see whether your ncmpcpp build
## supports charset detection by checking output
## of `ncmpcpp –version`.
##
## Note: Since MPD uses utf8 by default, setting
## this option makes sense only if your encoding
## is different.
##
#
#system_encoding = “”
#
##### delays #####
#
## delay after playlist highlighting will be disabled (0 = don’t disable)
#
playlist_disable_highlight_delay = “5”
#
## defines how long various messages are supposed to be visible
#
message_delay_time = “4”
#
##### song format #####
##
## for song format you can use:
##
## %l – length
## %f – filename
## %D – directory
## %a – artist
## %t – title
## %b – album
## %y – year
## %n – track number (01/12 -> 01)
## %N – full track info (01/12 -> 01/12)
## %g – genre
## %c – composer
## %p – performer
## %d – disc
## %C – comment
## $R – begin right alignment
##
## you can also put them in { } and then it will be displayed
## only if all requested values are available and/or define alternate
## value with { }|{ } eg. {%a – %t}|{%f}
##
## Note: Format that is similar to “%a – %t” (i.e. without any additional
## braces) is equal to “{%a – %t}”, so if one of the tags is missing,
## you’ll get nothing.
##
## text can also have different color than the main window has,
## eg. if you want length to be green, write $3%l$9
##
## available values:
##
## – 0 – default window color (discards all other colors)
## – 1 – black
## – 2 – red
## – 3 – green
## – 4 – yellow
## – 5 – blue
## – 6 – magenta
## – 7 – cyan
## – 8 – white
## – 9 – end of current color
##
## Note: colors can be nested.
##
#
song_list_format = “{%a – }{%t}|{$8%f$9}$R{$3(%l)$9}”
#
song_status_format = “{{%a{ \”%b\”{ (%y)}} – }{%t}}|{%f}”
#
song_library_format = “{%n – }{%t}|{%f}”
#
tag_editor_album_format = “{(%y) }%b”
#
##
## Note: Below variables are for alternative version of user’s interface.
## Their syntax supports all tags and colors listed above plus some extra
## markers used for text attributes. They are followed by character ‘$’.
## After that you can put:
##
## – b – bold text
## – u – underline text
## – r – reverse colors
## – a – use alternative character set
##
## If you don’t want to use an attribute anymore, just put it again, but
## this time insert character ‘/’ between ‘$’ and attribute character,
## e.g. {$b%t$/b}|{$r%f$/r} will display bolded title tag or filename
## with reversed colors.
##
#
#alternative_header_first_line_format = “$b$1$aqqu$/a$9 {%t}|{%f} $1$atqq$/a$9$/b”
#
#alternative_header_second_line_format = “{{$4$b%a$/b$9}{ – $7%b$9}{ ($4%y$9)}}|{%D}”
#
##
## Note: Below variables also supports
## text attributes listed above.
##
#
now_playing_prefix = “$b”
#
#now_playing_suffix = “$/b”
#
#browser_playlist_prefix = “$2playlist$9 ”
#
#selected_item_prefix = “$6”
#
#selected_item_suffix = “$9”
#
## colors are not supported for below variable
#
#song_window_title_format = “{%a – }{%t}|{%f}”
#
##### columns settings #####
##
## syntax of song columns list format is “column column etc.”
##
## – syntax for each column is:
##
## (width of column)[column’s color]{displayed tag}
##
## Note: Width is by default in %, if you want a column to
## have fixed size, add ‘f’ after the value, e.g. (10)[white]{a}
## will be the column that take 10% of screen (so the real column’s
## width will depend on actual screen size), whereas (10f)[white]{a}
## will take 10 terminal cells, no matter how wide the screen is.
##
## – color is optional (if you want the default one, type [])
##
## Note: You can give a column additional attributes by putting appropriate
## character after displayed tag character. Available attributes are:
##
## – r – column will be right aligned
## – E – if tag is empty, empty tag marker won’t be displayed
##
## E.g. {lr} will give you right aligned column of lengths.
##
#
song_columns_list_format = “(7f)[green]{l} (25)[cyan]{a} (40)[]{t} (30)[red]{b}”
#
##### various settings #####
#
##
## Note: Custom command that will be executed each
## time song changes. Useful for notifications etc.
##
## Attention: It doesn’t support song format anymore.
## Use `ncmpcpp –now-playing SONG_FORMAT` instead.
