NAMEdeejayd.conf - Site-wide configuration file for deejayd, a media player daemon.
DESCRIPTIONThe file /etc/deejayd.conf is an INI like file which configures deejayd. The format looks like this : [sectionname] variable = value othervariable = othervalue [othersection] foo = bar
GENERAL SECTIONThis section defines the general section configuration values for all of deejayd components. log Log level. Possible values are error to log only errors, info to be more verbose and debug to log all messages. activated_modes Modes enabled. Available modes are : playlist for audio playlists, panel for audio panel mode like rhythmbox, webradio for streamed webradios, video for video directories playback, dvd for DVD playback. As an example : activated_modes = playlist, panel, webradio, video fullscreen Fullscreen video. This is mainly a debugging configuration value and you want this to be set to yes if you use the video mode. Set this to no if you want to be able to control deejayd using some graphical client on the same display. replaygain Replaygain support, yes or no. media_backend The chosen media backend. Possible values are : auto for whichever works, trying first with Xine, xine for the Xine backend, gstreamer for the GStreamer backend.
NET SECTIONThis section defines the net section configuration values. This defines all that relates to the TCP XML messaging interface to deejayd. enabled Remote control using XML messages, yes or no. port The numerical TCP port number to listen on for XML messages, yes or no. bind_addresses The hostname(s), the IP address(es) of the network ipv4 interface to listen on for XML messages, or all to listen on all available interfaces. bind_addresses = localhost, 192.168.51.1, 10.2.3.4
WEBUI SECTIONThis section defines the webui section configuration values. This defines all that relates to the HTTP web user interface to deejayd. enabled Remote control using the HTTP web ui, yes or no. port The numerical TCP port number to listen on for HTTP request. yes or no. You can then access the web ui by pointing your browser to //deejayd-host:port/. bind_addresses The hostname(s), the IP address(es) of the network ipv4 interface to listen on for HTTP requests, or all to listen on all available interfaces. bind_addresses = 192.168.51.2, 10.0.0.3 tmp_dir This is a temporary directory used by the deejayd webui for caching. It should probably be located in /tmp. The only use case which would involve changing this would be for running multiple deejayd daemons running on the same host (with both webuis enabled). refresh Automatic refreshing time for the webui (in seconds). This is the delay after which your browser will be asked to reload the web ui state (song position, current song, etc). Set to 0 to disable this automatic reloading.
