       irmp3d.conf - Configuration file for irmp3d


       irmp3d  is  the  core daemon of irmp3. irmp3d uses a configuration file
       called irmp3.conf. This file is  expected  in  /etc,  but  a  different
       location can be specified on the command line.

       The  config  file  is  a  simple  text  file.  Each  line may contain a
       configuration directive or a comment. Empty lines  or  lines  beginning
       with a ’#’ are treated as comments and thus are ignored.

       Each  other  line  is  parsed  as  a  <key>:<value>  pair  where  <key>
       represents a configuration key and  <value>  its  assigned  value.  Any
       unknown  or  unsupported keys (e.g. because you don’t have included the
       assigned module) are ignored silently. The values  that  are  shown  in
       this  manual page are the default values assigned to a new config file.

       irmp3 consists of several  modules  that  use  different  configuration
       values. Therefore, this manual page is divided into sections describing
       each module and its parameters.


       irmp3d itself needs a few parameters.

       irmp3conf_version: <version>
              This key is set  automatically  by  irmp3conf  to  identify  the
              version  of irmp3conf that has been used to generate this config
              file. irmp3d will show a  warning  on  startup  if  you  use  an
              outdated  config  file.  You may want to set this value manually
              after upgrading irmp3d  and  checking  that  your  configuration
              options still exist and work the way you expect them to do.

       log_timestr: %X
              strftime()  format  for  reporting the date/time in the logfile.
              Please see manual page of strftime() for more information.

       irmp3_init_command: none
              A semi-column separated list of commands that irmp3d will run on
              startup.  This  option  can  be  used to specify a playlist or a
              directory to use on startup. It is equivalent to the irmp3d  "-m
              "  startup option, but is easyer to use when irmp3d is used as a

       playtype_<type>: none
              when  irmp3d has recognised the type of a file, it  will  atempt
              to  recognise  the  correct  player.  this  option  will force a
              particular player for a particular file type. If none are given,
              irmp3d  will  ask  the different players for supported types and
              choose a correct one

       exec_on_close: none
              command to be executed on irmp3d shutdown. mainly used with  the
              autoshutdown module

              LCDproc here. Use a comma-delimited format, no spaces! If you do
              not list a key here, irmp3 will not receive  that  key  at  all!
              irmp3  conf  will  generate  a  default  configuration using the
              e,f,g,h,i,j,k,p,r,s,t keys, and  the  correct  lodproc_key_<key>
              symbols to control irmp3d.

       lcdproc_key_<key>: <command>

       mod_playlistlist  enables  irmp3d to keep a list of playlist and easily
       switch between playlists.

       This module doesn’t have any configurable options so far.


       mod_alarm is able to handle events that can be triggered  from  outside
       irmp3d  by  sending a SIGUSR1 or SIGUSR2 to the daemon (e. g. through a
       cron job).

       mod_alarm depends on mod_env  and  provides  two  special  environments
       called   environment_alarm1  and  environment_alarm2.  Please  see  the
       section on mod_env in tis document for more information.


       mod_autoshutdown shuts down the irmp3d daemon after a certain  time  of

       autoshutdown_time: 0
              Minutes  of  inactivity  before irmp3d automatically shuts down.
              Set to 0 (default) to disablemod_ autoshutdown.


       mod_beep can be used to produce  an  audible  signal  if  features  are
       turned on or off.

       beep_play: /usr/bin/sox %f -t ossdsp -w -s %d
              The command executed  to  play  a  sound.  %d  and  %f  will  be
              substituted with beep_device and the sound file to play.


       mod_browser provides an interactive file and directory browser that can
       be used to select files and directories to play. Additionally, external
       scripts can be called to perform complex functions.

       browser_root: </>
              Root   directory  for  browsing.  Browsing  is  limted  to  this
              directory and its subfolders.

       browser_home: </>
              File browser’s startup directory (relative to ’browser_root’).

       browser_exec: -
              Directory where executable shell scripts may be stored (relative
              to ’browser_root’). Leave blank to enable shell script execution
              within all directories below  ’browser_root’.  Defaults  to  ’-’
              which to disable shell script execution for security reasons.

       browser_mask_audio: *.[Mm][Pp]3
              File name pattern to be recognized as audio file.

       browser_mask_list: *.[Mm]3[Uu]
              File name pattern to be recognized as playlist.

       browser_mask_listlist: *.[Mm]3[Ll]
              File name pattern to be recognized as playlistlist.

       browser_mask_exec: *.[Ss][Hh]

       browser_mask_hide: *
              Pattern  for  files  that  should not be displayed. ’*’ means no
              files besides the ones specified above will be shown.  ’*.count’
              means  only  files  matching  ’*.count’  will  be  excluded, all
              remaining filles will be displayed.

       browser_mask_casesensitive: yes
              Set this to ’no’ if  you  don’t  want  irmp3d  to  perform  case
              sensitive file name matching.

       browser_execmsg: </tmp/irmp3.execmsg.tmp>
              Filename  where shell scripts executed by mod_browse can leave a
              message to be displayed by irmp3d. The irmp3d daemon  must  have
              read  access  to  this  file.  The  file  can be located outside
              ’browser_root’. This filename  will  be  the  1st  command  line
              parameter  passed  to  the  shell  script.  The  script  has  to
              clear/delete this  file  if  it  doesn’t  want  to  display  any

       browser_pwddepth: 2
              Sets  the  number  of parent directories you want to be shown as
              parent working directory. If your pwd is  ’/mnt/mp3/music/metal’
              and   ’browser_pwddepth’   is  set  to  2,  you  will  be  shown
              ’music/metal’ as pwd

       browser_cdup: no
              Set this to ’yes’ if you want to  be  shown  a  ".."  directory.
              Using  this  feature you don’t need a "browser back" key. Simply
              use normal "browser into" command on a ".." directory  in  order
              to do a "cd ..".

       browser_cdup_initial_updir: no
              Set  this to "yes" if you want mod_browser to stay on ".." after
              cd-ing  into  a  directory.  If  set  to  no,  mod_browser  will
              automatically advance to the first file (if present).


       mod_cd  provides  support  for  playing  both  audio  CDs  and data CDs
       containing MP3 files.

       num_cd_device: 1
              the number of cdroms to handle.  each of them has a device and a
              mountpoint, they are numbered from 0 to n-1

       cd_device_#: /dev/cdrom
              The device to use for mounting and audio playback.

       cd_mountpoint_#: /mnt/cdrom
              The mount point to use for data CDs.

       cd_scandir_pattern: *.[Mm][Pp]3
              Pattern  to scan file names of data CDs. All files matching this
              pattern are  added  to  a  playlist.   the  mountpoint  for  the
              specific device is prepended to find the files.

       cd_externmount: yes
              If this is set to "no", irmp3d will use a system call instead of
              the  external  mount  command.  Note  that  irmp3d  needs   root
              privileges if you want to do this.


       mod_env  makes  it  possible  to  specify  environments  consisting  of
       multiple irmp3d commands that can be  called  with  a  single  command.
       Environments are specified using the following syntax:

       environment_<env name>: <command>;<command>;...
              irmp3conf    will    generate    example   environments   called
              environment_bedtime and environment_party


       mod_idle is used internally to announce periods of idle time  to  other

       idle_interval: 60
              Time  in seconds between idle checks/announcements.  set to 0 to
              disable (this might break other modules)


       mod_mixer provides an interface to control audio mixer settings of your
       sound card.

       mixer_device: /dev/mixer
              File name of mixer device.

       mixer_volume: -1
              mixer_balance:  0 mixer_bass: -1 mixer_treble: -1 Default values
              that are set by irmp3d on startup.  These  values  can  also  be
              restored by issuing a ’mixer default’ command. If you don’t want
              irmp3d to modify your mixer settings, just remove these settings
              or set them to -1.

       mixer_vol_channel: vol
              The name of the mixer channel to manipulate volume.


       mod_netctl  provides  a  network  socket  that  can  be  used to submit
       commands to irmp3d.

       netctl_enabled: yes
              Set this to "no" to disable network support.

       netctl_interface: all
              You can specify a hostname or an ip address for irmp3d  to  bind
              to. Default to ’all’ interfaces.

       netctl_port: 9232
              Network  port  to  bind  to.  mod_netctl  will fail without this

       netctl_max_clients: 5
              Maximum number of clients allowed to connect at a time.


       mod_timer provides a sleep timer similar to the timer provided by  many
       legacy devices.

       This  module  doesn’t  have  any  configurable  options so far. See the
       appropriate section of irmp3d(7) for more information.


       None so far.


       mod_fifo provides an interface to submit commands to irmp3d  through  a
       named pipe.

       fifo_enabled: no
              Set this to yes to enable mod_fifo.

       fifo_directory: /tmp
              Set  this  to  the  directory where the pipe should reside. Note
              irmp3d needs write access to this path if you choose to create a
              fifo dynamically (see below).

       fifo_name: irmp3-%u-%p.tmp
              Name  of  the  socet  file. %u will be replaced with the uid, %p
              with the pid of irmp3d.

       fifo_create: yes
              Sets whether irmp3d tries to create  a  new  socket  or  use  an
              existing  socket  (useful if you want to setup a single instance
              of irmp3d and control it e. g. via /dev/irmp3d).

       fifo_remove: yes
              Sets whether irmp3d removes the fifo file on shutdown.

       fifo_perms: 0622
              Default permissions for newly created socket file. Note that u+r
              is added automatically (everything else is ridiculous anyway).


       mod_kbd directly reads input events from the keyboard and the mouse and
       can then use a configuration file to run some irmp3 it  is
       especially  usefull  for  handling  of multimedia keyboards, but it can
       also map normal keys (avoid that on a computer which is  not  dedicated
       to irmp3

       kbd_enabled: no
              Set this to yes to enable mod_kbd.
