Music Player Daemon description

Music Player Daemon (MPD) is a server that allows remote access for playing music (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, AAC, Mod, and wave) and managing playlists.

Music Player Daemon makes a great desktop player with frontend options (Qt, GTK, ncurses, Windows, and Web clients are available). It is also appropriate as a console player that is scriptable, and is especially useful if X is restarted frequently.

A set of rapid development tools for clients are being developed and include a C library, Python module, PHP class, Perl module, and Java Class.

The goals are to be easy to install and use, to have minimal resource requirements, to be stable and flexible, and easy to interface.

MPD is designed around a client/server architecture, where the clients interact with MPD over a network. Thus, running MPD is only half of the equation; to use MPD, you need to install a MPD client:

Web Clients

· phpMp - Web interface written in PHP
· phpMp2 - Another web interface written in PHP

Graphical Clients

· gmpc - Gnome Music Player Client
· kmp - Graphical interface written in Qt
· MPDCon - A GNUstep Graphical interface
· glurp - Graphical interface written in GTK+
· WMmp - Window Maker dockapp
· gtk2mp - Try gmpc first! Graphical interface written in Gtk+

Command Line Clients

· ncmpc - ncurses (command line) client
· mpc - (Scriptable) command line client
· bashmp - client written as bash aliases and functions

Miscellaneous Clients

· mpcstick - Linux joystick client
· arthist - Perl client to generate a web blog of MPD activity. Music Player Daemon Community Wiki. Music Player Daemon Community Wiki is a database that anyone can edit.
