Music Player Daemon (MPD) allows remote access for playing music (MP3,
Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, AAC, Mod, and wave files) and managing playlists.
MPD is designed for integrating a computer into a stereo system that
provides control for music playback over a local network. It also makes
a great desktop music player, especially if you are a console junkie,
like frontend options, or restart X often.
Some optional dependencies include libshout, libmms, libsamplerate,
libmpcdec, lame, faac, faad2, ffmpeg, and jack.
NOTE: You will have to create the ~/.mpd/playlists directory manually.
Also be sure to edit the config file (/etc/mpd.conf) if needed before
running the daemon.
If save status isn't working properly when killing, try "killall -TERM mpd",
and that should resolve the problem.
