How to increase playlist limit

Postby eboxr » 06 May 2016, 05:40

I cannot find where to increase the playlist limit above 16384,
I tried to set max_playlist_length in mpd.conf but this file is autogenerated at reboot

What s the best way to increase the limit of 16384 ?
I do not really care if the UI cannot display the full playlist,
just want to be able to play all the songs randomly.

Thanks for any help

Hi eboxr, a better approach would be to use ashuffle (take a look here). In the next version it will be implemented by default.

Having a huge queue is not suggested because it negatively affects MPD performance and stability.

It is already implemented in the latest image for RP2/RP3. See MENU->MPD->Global random

Hello. I'm using version: 0.4b (build: 20170229). I'd like to add a music file to the play list beyond 16384 which are the upper limit of the play list. Are there any ways?

Hi ayase1121,

the "max_playlist_length" can be set in mpd.conf.
The problem with this is, that it will be reset by rebooting your device.
To get this permanent you have to set this in our database.
Get access to the console and execute:
Code: Select all
redis-cli hset mpdconf max_playlist_length 20000


Frank

- Get access to the console:
Use SSH from your PC
    If you are not familiar with SSH read this for Windows or this for Linux/MacOS
    The default login for RuneAudio is "root" with the password "rune" (without quotes).

- Use sftp to access files on Rune Audio:
Get WinSCP from here and install it.
When it opens setup the following:
- Session
File Protocol: SCP
Host name: The IP address of your Raspberry Pi
User name: root
Password: rune

That's it, connect and you can transfer files just by dragging and dropping.

Thank you very much!
I have another question.
Is this way also effective in 0.5-beta?
