In this tutorial, we will explain how you can create your own Discord music bot to broadcast your favorite music to the entire server. As long as you follow this guide step by step, the whole process is generally very easy and you will have a lot of control over how things work for your particular server.

To start, we’ll explain what you need to make it work, and then we’ll look at how you can set up the bot and how you can configure it once it’s on your server. friend.

Get Started – What You Need for a Music Bot on Discord

Before you can install the Discord music bot, you must ensure that you have the appropriate permissions. You need to be the server owner or you need to have admin rights. If you don’t have any of these permissions, you’ll need to ask the current owner. To find out what permissions your role has on Discord, click ‘server settings’.

To do this, click the drop-down arrow next to the server name in the top left. Then click Server settings on the window that appears.

On the settings page, click Role on the left and then on the right, search for your role. It should be the topmost role, basically the server admin role or one of the others.

Click on your role and make sure the ‘Admin’ option is set switch to the on position. This will allow you to add bots to your Discord channel.

Next, it’s time to find a good Discord music bot. For this tutorial we will be using Rythmbot. You can find download page here.

On the Rythmbot download page, click Invite Rythm button. This will add Rythm to your server.

Next, you will need to select the server you want Rythm to join. You may need to sign in to your Discord account in your browser before this option is displayed. If you have admin rights on more than one server, make sure you choose the correct one.

Then just click Authorityand Rythm will be added to your server. Next, it’s time to create a voice channel for the music bot. It can be a fun way to create a radio station or social listening experience, but you don’t really want a music bot in your standard voice chat channel.

To do this, go back to Discord and click ‘+’ on the voice channels section, found on the left side of the Discord window.

Then choose a name for the server and make sure you choose Voice channel right to buy. Now it’s time for Rythm to join the channel. To do this, first look for any song on the internet. For example, go to Youtube and search for a track.

Then copy the URL for that song and go back to Discord, and type ! play ‘youtubeurlhere’. Make sure to replace ‘youtubeurlhere’ with the URL you want to play. Rythmbot will join the first voice channel and start broadcasting. You can then click and drag it to move it to your music channel.

If you want the music bot to leave, just type ! disconnect and it will leave the channel it is currently in. If you want the bot to join the channel you’re on, type !participation.

There are many other commands available for you to use with Rythmbot. For example, type ‘! song title lyrics’ can return results for the lyrics and paste them into the text channel.

You don’t even need to find the specific URL for a song. In fact, you can simply type ! play ‘song title’ and the bot will look for it and then add it to the play queue.

Discord bot not playing any music – Help!

This is a common problem that many Discord music bot users face, but it’s generally easy to fix. First, if it doesn’t play any sound, you may need to move your server to a location closer to the bot. In my experience, I’ve found switching to a US server helps.

To do this, click the drop-down arrow next to your server name in the top left. Next, click Server settings. Then in the server overview, click on the server region option to change your server.

If this doesn’t work, make sure that the Discord music bot is not muted. Right click on the bot while it is in the voice channel then make sure ‘user count’ is not at 0. Also make sure ‘mute’ and ‘server mute’ are unchecked. Your options should match the image shown above.

If you still have problems, try typing ! disconnect in general conversation and then type !participation to disconnect and reconnect the bot. Sometimes this can solve the problem.

As a final note, make sure you’re actually connected to the server. You must also connect to the server to be able to listen to music.

Finally, one more tip. If you want to make it so that only the bot can play audio in the channel it has, you’ll need to assign a unique role to the bot.

First, click the drop-down arrow next to your server name in the top left. Next, click Server settings.

Click Role and then click ‘+’ button at top. Name it like Music Bot. Save the changes and close the page.

Next, right click on Rythmbot and give it the music bot role.

Finally, right click on the music channel and click Channel Editing. Let’s look at each role and make it so that no role can use voice chat, but make sure the music bot role can use voice chat.

The role ‘everyone’ needs this setting on the “x” and the Music Bot role needs this setting on tick.
