thanks to the amazing support of js (upmpdcli developer) I am currently testing Tidal with umpdcli for the first time.
The issue was the lack of various python2 packages. Below I will give you all the
information on how to fix it, until I upload a new image.
For the Raspberry Pi:
– Add a rollback machine to mirrorlist so that the extra packages installed are as old is the image is (this way we avoid dependencies breakage):
and put the line below as the first line of this file:
Server = http://tardis.tiny-vps.com/aarm/repos/2018/03/20/$arch/$repo
save and then give the following:
pacman -Syy python2 python2-requests
– Give the following command:
l n -s /usr/bin/python2 /usr/bin/python
– Edit upmpdcli.conf:
find the tidal section and put your credentials and quality (I have the lossless trial enabled, that’s why I use it in the example below). For example:
tidaluser = firstname.lastname@example.org
tidalpass = yourpassword
tidalquality = lossless
Even better and to be sure, do not edit the section, just add these three lines below the tidal section.
– Save and start upmpdcli service as described on the manual. Open BubbleUpnp or Lin Kazoo or any app you know that works and enjoy!
For Odroid C2
The procedure for the Odroid C2 is the same apart from the server line, where you will use the following line:
Server = http://tardis.tiny-vps.com/aarm/repos/2018/03/06/$arch/$repo
Please do not abuse the rollback servers! Use once and after you finish, remove them!
