Hi - pretty new to node-red and I could use some advice on how to handle a particular feature implementation for my project. I would like to have a playlist of music (stored as mp3s or wavs in a single directory) be controllable by node-red. The music would be stored on and played back from the server running node-red. Ideally it would have the ability to play, pause, control the volume level, and go to the next or previous track. I had a few initial thoughts on how to implement this but would appreciate any direction or advice:
b) use exec commands to control a command line or python based player
c) find a media player that can be controlled with osc commands
Thank you Paul! Nice project, I appreciate the clear documentation. I should have mentioned that I'm developing these flows on a mac but intend to deploy on a windows machine. Seems like you are using aplay/amixer here, is that correct? My understanding is those are linux specific.
