Mopidy keeps track of the music, your playlists, and the clients that command it.

Use your favorite client

You can use your favorite MPD client to search for music and manage the playlist. MPD clients are available for many platforms, including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Android, and iOS.

There are also multiple web clients available that let you control Mopidy from your browser.

Android's skating

In other words, you can control the music from any computer or smartphone in your home.


Stream from Spotify

If you got a subscription for Spotify Premium, then Mopidy can stream music from Spotify's archive of 15 million tracks. You'll never need to refill your collection with new music again.


Stream from SoundCloud

If you got a SoundCloud account and the Mopidy-SoundCloud extension, then Mopidy can search for and stream music from SoundCloud as well.

With Mopidy's extension support, new music sources can be easily added.
