Muer is a modern, open-source music player with beautiful UI/UX, similar to Hyperpipe. One of the things I most appreciate about Muer is that you can listen to YouTube music without any kind of commercial interruption. Muer serves music from Youtube without commercial ADS and Trackers. Muer is based on Invidious. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Muer on your Synology NAS using Docker & Portainer.
Install Portainer using my step by step guide. If you already have Portainer installed on your Synology NAS, skip this STEP. Attention: Make sure you have installed the latest Portainer version.
Make sure you have a synology.me Wildcard Certificate. Follow my guide to get a Wildcard Certificate. If you already have a synology.me Wildcard certificate, skip this STEP.
Go to Control Panel / Login Portal / Advanced Tab / click Reverse Proxy. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Now click the “Create” button. Follow the instructions in the image below.
After you click the Create button, the window below will open. Follow the instructions in the image below.
On the General area, set the Reverse Proxy Name description: type in Muer. After that, add the following instructions:
Check Enable HSTS
On the Reverse Proxy Rules click the Custom Header tab. Click Create and then, from the drop-down menu, click WebSocket. After you click on WebSocket, two Header Names and two Values will be automatically added. Click Save. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Go to Control Panel / Network / Connectivity tab/ Check Enable HTTP/2 then click Apply. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Go to Control Panel / Security / Advanced tab/ Check Enable HTTP Compression then click Apply. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Log into Portainer using your username and password. On the left sidebar in Portainer, click on Stacks then + Add stack. Follow the instructions in the image below.
In the Name field type in muer. Follow the instructions in the image below.
version: "3.9" services: muer: image: muerorg/muer:latest container_name: Muer hostname: muer mem_limit: 4g cpu_shares: 768 security_opt: - no-new-privileges:true read_only: false user: 1026:100 healthcheck: test: wget --no-verbose --tries=1 --spider http://localhost:3000 ports: - 7124:3000 volumes: - /etc/TZ:/etc/timezone:ro - /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro
Note: Before you paste the code in the Portainer Web editor area, change the value numbers for user with your own values. (Follow my step by step guide on how to do this.) 1026 is my personal UID value and 100 is my personal GID value. You have to type in your own values.
Scroll down on the page until you see a button named Deploy the stack. Click on it. Follow the instructions in the image below. The installation process can take up to a few minutes. It will depend on your Internet speed connection.
If everything goes right, you will see the following message at the top right of your screen: “Success Stack successfully deployed“.
Go back to STEP 1 or you will deal with karma 🙂.
Now open your browser and type in your HTTPS/SSL certificate like this https://muer.yourname.synology.me In my case it’s https://muer.mariushosting.synology.me If everything goes right, you will see the Muer homepage. On the left sidebar click Search, then type in the name of your favorite song. Play, then save to favorites! Follow the instructions in the image below.
Fix: Muer will not fully work in localhost. You need to use reverse proxy to make it fully functional.
