Rhythmbox. Connection to NextCloud Music

Post by pixel24 »

Hi@all,

I have installed and set up the "Music" plugin on my NextCloud (20). This provides the backends Ampache and Subsonic.

Both backends work. I can access my music from Android using PowerAmpache (Apache backend) or DSUB (Subsonic backend), create playlists, etc.

Everything looks good.

What I have been failing at for many days now is the connection to Rhythmbox. I have not found a plug-in for Rhythmbox for Subsonic. However, there is a plug-in for Ampache. I have installed and set it up.

I entered exactly the same data (URL, user, key) as under Android. Amapche appears in the sidebar but nothing happens.

When I start the programme in the terminal, I get the following relevant messages:

Code: Select all

rhythmbox -d ampache
...
(17:48:00) [0x56098e95bd20] [AmpacheBrowser.update] /usr/lib/rhythmbox/plugins/ampache/AmpacheBrowser.py:850: downloading handshake: https://cloud.mydomain.de/nextcloud/apps/music/ampache/server/xml.server.php?action=handshake&auth=**********************&timestamp=1610470080&user=me&version=350001

...
But I don't see where the problem is :-( Does anyone have experience with the backend?
