The gpmdp media player platform allows you to control a GPMDP instance running on a computer from Home Assistant.

You will have first have to check “Enable playback API” in GPMDP’s settings and then add an inbound rule to the firewall to allow access to port 5672 on the computer running GPMDP.

Then just add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: gpmdp
    host: IP_ADDRESS

Configuration variables:

  • host (Required): IP address of the computer running GPMDP.
  • name (Optional): Name of the player.
