  • Integrating SoulSeek into Jackett (and by extension, qbittorrent)
    Just a side note there is lidarr that has webui that handles music, not tried soulseek looking at it now, so don't know if it's the same.. Source: 3 months ago
  • has anyone done the big move from Spotify or other to Plex?
    First you will need "". Source: 3 months ago
  • Plex & Torrent
    And finally, to connect these to all the various torrent sites and interpret the varying results you get back into a form sonarr/radarr (and even Lidarr for music) can deal with: there is Prowlarr. It handles adding/removing torrent trackers and each of their categories, then syncs those settings to the other software mentioned.

    I was using an older database version on the latest lidarr on so I am not sure what the other part of your reply was. Either way, again, thank you. Source: 7 months ago
  • Auto-downloading songs added to playist in Spotify/YT Music
    Sure it is. I did a little googleing and it turns out that Lidarr has this feature built in. Source: 8 months ago
  • New episodes not found unless changing scanner/agent
    Sounds like a naming issue I would recommend either manually following the plex naming scheme or use software like sonarr/radarr/lidarr which can handel the naming for tv, movies, and music respectively. Source: 11 months ago

  • My CSE Professor telling students to install a Linux distro for DSA and Computer Organization course :)
    Hmm im not really a CD person, but Ill share my self-hosted solution to manage my music, I would first try to join a private music tracker like orpheus, then I use to manage downloads and metadta/tags. Then for streaming I use Check out the demo its pretty cool, basically a self-hosted spotify. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Streaming subscriptions in decline as UK households cut budgets | Netflix
    I use a few apps to grab everything for me, Sonarr (for TV), and Radarr (for movies). There's also Lidarr (for music). Source: about 1 year ago
  • Seems like Pirates like us are a very specific breed today. Reduced in numbers with every pass g day.
    You can now manually download stuff via usenet, just as you would with torrents. To automate everything you need 2 more pieces of software - radarr & sonarr, the former is for movies, the latter for TV shows (your episodes will download themselves as soon as they are released). There's also lidarr for music but I've never used it. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Portable raspberry pi music player / storage?
    Https:// for automated MP3 library downloads. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Old music streaming question....
    Also I think, but not sure. You can add playlists from different sources to lidarr, which will then check if you have those music files available on storage ( combined with plex ) if not it will try to download the missing albums. Now the part where I am not sure I think you can set it up that the playlists are then created in plex with the tracks from the playlist you do have if you have lidarr setup with plex api.

  • Where is the giant music horde?
    Yeah you prolly mean lidarr Source: over 1 year ago
  • Flashbacks
    So these days piracy has gotten more advanced. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Late Night Random Discussion Thread - 03 May, 2021
    I hoard music that I like. Not all music that I hear. If you like hoarding a lot of music do consider setting up Lidarr. Source: about 2 years ago
