Music Player Daemon (MPD) is a server that allows remote access for playing music (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, and Flac) and managing playlists. The design focus is on integrating a computer into a stereo system that provides control for music playback over a local network. Currently, it includes a Web interface (phpMp), a GTK frontend (gtk2mp), a command line tool (mpc), and a dock app(WMmp). Its goals are ease of installation and use, minimal resource requirements, and stability and flexibility.
