Cmus


The cmus platform allows you to control a cmus music player on a remote or local machine from Home Assistant.

To add cmus to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file if running locally it will look like:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
media_player:
  - platform: cmus

if cmus is running on a remote server:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
media_player:
  - platform: cmus
    host: IP_ADDRESS
    password: PASSWORD

Configuration variables:

  • host (Optional): Hostname or IP address of the machine running cmus. Note if a remote cmus is configured that instance must be configured to listen to remote connections, which also requires a password to be set.
  • password (Required if host is set): Password for your cmus player.
  • port (Optional): Port of the cmus socket, defaults to 3000.
  • name (Optional): The name you’d like to give the cmus player in Home Assistant
