All MumbleDJ installations must also have the following installed:

If installing via go install or from source, the following must be installed:

  • Go 1.5+
    • NOTE: Extra installation steps are required for a working Go installation. Once Go is installed, type go help gopath for more information.
YouTube API Key

A YouTube API key must be present in your configuration file in order to use the YouTube service within the bot. Below is a guide for retrieving an API key:

1) Navigate to the Google Developers Console and sign in with your Google account, or create one if you haven't already.

2) Click the "Create Project" button and give your project a name. It doesn't matter what you set your project name to. Once you have a name click the "Create" button. You should be redirected to your new project once it's ready.

3) Click on "APIs & auth" on the sidebar, and then click APIs. Under the "YouTube APIs" header, click "YouTube Data API". Click on the "Enable API" button.

4) Click on the "Credentials" option underneath "APIs & auth" on the sidebar. Underneath "Public API access" click on "Create New Key". Choose the "Server key" option.

5) Add the IP address of the machine MumbleDJ will run on in the box that appears (this is optional, but improves security). Click "Create".

6) You should now see that an API key has been generated. Copy/paste this API key into the configuration file located at $HOME/.config/mumbledj/mumbledj.yaml.

SoundCloud API Key

A SoundCloud client ID must be present in your configuration file in order to use the SoundCloud service within the bot. Below is a guide for retrieving a client ID:

1) Login/sign up for a SoundCloud account on https://soundcloud.com.

2) Create a new app: https://soundcloud.com/you/apps/new.

3) You should now see that a client ID has been generated. Copy/paste this ID (NOT the client secret) into the configuration file located at $HOME/.config/mumbledj/mumbledj.yaml.

Via go get

After verifying that the requirements are installed, simply issue the following command:

go get -u git.roshless.me/roshless/mumbledj

This should place a binary in $GOPATH/bin that can be used to start the bot.

From Source

First, clone the MumbleDJ repository to your machine:

git clone https://git.roshless.me/roshless/mumbledj.git

Install the required software as described in the requirements section, and execute the following:


This will place a compiled mumbledj binary in the cloned directory if successful. If you would like to make the binary more accessible by adding it to /usr/local/bin, simply execute the following:

sudo make install


First you need to clone the MumbleDJ repository to your machine:

git clone https://git.roshless.me/roshless/mumbledj

Assuming you have Docker installed, you will have to build the image:

docker build -t mumbledj .

And then you can run it, passing the configuration through the command line:

docker run --rm --name=mumbledj mumbledj --server=SERVER --api_keys.youtube=YOUR_YOUTUBE_API_KEY --api_keys.soundcloud=YOUR_SOUNDCLOUD_API_KEY

In order to run the process as a daemon and restart it automatically on reboot you can use:

docker run -d --restart=unless-stopped --name=mumbledj mumbledj --server=SERVER --api_keys.youtube=YOUR_YOUTUBE_API_KEY --api_keys.soundcloud=YOUR_SOUNDCLOUD_API_KEY

Compose doesn't have any sens here. Just use docker run.

NOTE: You can also override all settings found within config.yaml directly from the commandline. Here's an example:

mumbledj --admins.names="SuperUser,Matt" --volume.default="0.5" --volume.lowest="0.2" --queue.automatic_shuffle_on="true"

Keep in mind that values that contain commas (such as "SuperUser,Matt") will be interpreted as string slices, or arrays if you are not familiar with Go. If you want your value to be interpreted as a normal string, it is best to avoid commas for now.
