Installation

Install by running:

sudo python3 -m pip install Mopidy-SoundCloud

See https://mopidy.com/ext/soundcloud/ for alternative installation methods.

Configuration

  1. You must register for a user account at https://soundcloud.com/

  2. You need a SoundCloud authentication token for Mopidy from https://mopidy.com/authenticate

  3. Add the authentication token to the mopidy.conf config file:

    [soundcloud]
    auth_token = 1-1111-1111111
    explore_songs = 25
    
  4. Use explore_songs to restrict the number of items returned.

Troubleshooting

If you're having trouble with audio playback from SoundCloud, make sure you have the "ugly" plugin set from GStreamer installed for MP3 support. The package is typically named gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly or similar, depending on OS and distribution. The package isn't a strict requirement for Mopidy's core, so you may be missing it.
