Ampache login with the music app


#1

Hello,

I try to use the music App with an Ampache Player for Android. How it works? I add this URL to the Player https://cloud.domai.tld/index.php/apps/music/ampache/
But can’t connect. Can anyone help me?

Hello Lars_M,

You first need to generate an API password to be used with the Ampache API. Go to the personal settings in Nextcloud and scroll to ‘Music’. There you can find the ‘Generate API password’ button. Give some description for your password and press the button. The password is generated and shown on the screen as long as you don’t navigate away; after navigating away there is no way to retrieve the password. If you lose it, you can always generate a new password. Then setup your Ampache client with the URL shown on the settings page and the just generated password.

The Music App does not work with all Ampache-enabled players but I have been successfully using it with Power Ampache on Android and Tomahawk on Windows.

I am facing similar problems, power ampache tells me that somethong went wrongand tthwt i should try again, this happens despite of having set up a API password. However after reading an installation manual for ampache it makes me think that the problem is forced https connection set in nextcloudpi pannel, i will later try to disable that and test again.

Hey guys, I’m the developer for Power Ampache, I know I haven’t released any update for a few months, I’ve been very busy with work (unfortunately I need to pay my bills too).
Please let me know if there’s any bug I can fix or if you have any feature request. Use the “developer email” in the play store or fdroid (or here).

Hey @ant11, thanx for chipping in here, i already solved my issue with login, that works quite well now. However, i have some problems with how power ampache lists the music, but i am not sure if this is a general ampache issue, related to music plugin or if its caused by power ampache.
Is it possible to sort by folder? I use to sort my music by like genre/subgenre/album/musicfile.xxx is there a possibility to navigate by folder hirarchy?
