Play music from a folder

As mentioned in this, now closed thread, I am able to get a youtube video to play

but when I try to modify the command as below to play a folder it doesnt work. I get the error

curl -s -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "Player.Open", "params": {"item": { "directory" : "/storage/.kodi/music/Pop"}}, "id": 1}'
{"error":curl -s -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "Player.Open", "params": {"item": { "directory" : "/storage/.kodi/music/Pop"}}, "id": 1}'" : "/storage/.kodi/music/Pop"}}, "id": 1}' http://192.168
{"error":{"code":-32602,"message":"Invalid params."},"id":1,"jsonrpc":"2.0"}i

can someone help troublshoot it please?

My path to the music dir was wrong. its /storage/music/Pop not /storage/.kodi/music/Pop

Works a charm. Thanks a bunch @vpeter

One last thing, any idea how to apply a condition like “Repeat Folder” or “Random” etc to this?

The command doesnt work with the shuffle part. removing that part makes it work in repeat.
