BU Lavalink Servers

Bots University is hosting several Lavalink Nodes, managing and maintaining, so that you are able to request hundreds of YouTube Songs and from other sources.

API - Useable for any coding Language

Mainly supporting Streaming OPUS Audio in a Discord Voice Channel, but can be used in other clients which are opus encoded. Lavalink is a standalone API-Scraper Server, so you can use it with any coding language. Here is a list of different Wrappers.

Self-Host able

If you know enough about V-Servers you can self-host a Lavalink Node. But be aware, that you should have an IPV6 Block, for IP Routing. Otherwise you'll get ratelimtied!

      "password": "mathiscool",
      "port": 443,

Example Bot erela.js and discord.js

            // To install Discord.JS and Erela.JS, run: npm install discord.js erela.js
const { Client } = require("discord.js");
const { Manager } = require("erela.js");

// Initialize the Discord.JS Client.
const client = new Client();

// Initiate the Manager with some options and listen to some events.
client.manager = new Manager({
  nodes: [
      host: "lavalink.botsuniversity.ml", 
      port: 443, 
      password: "mathiscool",
      secure: true,
  send(id, payload) {
    const guild = client.guilds.cache.get(id);
    if (guild) guild.shard.send(payload);
  .on("nodeConnect", node => console.log(`Node ${node.options.identifier} connected`))
  .on("nodeError", (node, error) => console.log(`Node ${node.options.identifier} had an error: ${error.message}`))
  .on("trackStart", (player, track) => {
    client.channels.cache.get(player.textChannel).send(`Now playing: ${track.title}`);
  .on("queueEnd", (player) => {
    client.channels.cache.get(player.textChannel).send("Queue has ended.");

client.once("ready", () => {
  console.log("I am ready!");
  client.manager.init(client.user.id); // Initiate the manager.

// Here we send voice data to lavalink whenever the bot joins a voice channel to play audio in the channel.
client.on("raw", (d) => client.manager.updateVoiceState(d));

client.on("message", async (message) => {
  if (message.content.startsWith("!play")) {
    // Note: This example only works for retrieving tracks using a query, such as "Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up".
    // Retrieves tracks with your query and the requester of the tracks.
    // Note: This retrieves tracks from youtube by default, to get from other sources you must enable them in application.yml and provide a link for the source.
    // Note: If you want to "search" for tracks you must provide an object with a "query" property being the query to use, and "source" being one of "youtube", "soundcloud".
    const res = await client.manager.search(
    // Create a new player. This will return the player if it already exists.
    const player = client.manager.create({
      guild: message.guild.id,
      voiceChannel: message.member.voice.channel.id,
      textChannel: message.channel.id,
    // Connect to the voice channel.
    // Adds the first track to the queue.
    message.channel.send(`Enqueuing track ${res.tracks[0].title}.`);
    // Plays the player (plays the first track in the queue).
    // The if statement is needed else it will play the current track again
    if (!player.playing && !player.paused && !player.queue.size)
client.login("your bot token");
