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:
phpMp - Web interface written in PHP
phpMp2 - Another web interface written in PHP
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
mpcstick - Linux joystick client
arthist - Perl client to generate a web blog of MPD activity
