mpd_music_player_daemon sammelsurium/software/audio/player/mpd MPD (Music Player Daemon) is a software, which can play its music to versatile outputs like soundcards, streams, named pipes (FIFO), etc. There are several clients to control a MPD server. The music output itself is always done on the server, not within the clients.
