Does anyone know why stickers are not supported in volumio’s MPD, and if there’s a way to support them? MPD stickers is a way to enhance information stored by MPD for each song, for instance with stickers we could implement songs rating in the webui. But it doesn’t work : if I try
mpc sticker set song <uri> rating 3
which, according to this man page musicpd.org/doc/protocol/stickers.html , should create a sticker ; I get an error message saying sticker is an unknown command. Digging a little bit more, I’ve found out stickers are disabled in C code when a constant named “ENABLE_SQLITE” is undefined.
So, any idea how to fix this? Should we recompile MPD with some option to enable sqlite?
What’s weird is that I have the stickers SQL file on disk (/var/lib/mpd/sticker.sql), and the file isn’t empty, so I wonder if stickers were previously enabled, and became disabled later? Maybe through an apt-get upgrade?
