  • Let's make a definitive guide to the subtle differences in Self Hosted Music Streaming.
    Others: Ampache, Mopidy, Koel, Music Player Daemon (MPD), Lightweight Music Server (LMS), Serviio. I'm not saying these are bad, I just don't know what sets these apart from the "Generic Music Server"
  • Cli music streaming
    “Music Player Daemon (MPD) is a flexible, powerful, server-side application for playing music. Through plugins and libraries it can play a variety of sound files while being controlled by its network protocol.”
  • Music server that features a catalog and personal library
    Your personal library in this use case is the equivalent of a playlist?? I would use something like MPD https://www.musicpd.org/ in your use case.
  • Sync music between Android and Desktop

    This doesn't seem currently possible without programming this yourself. The only player I could find that has such a feature outside of Apple is XMPlay, which is Windows-only. The "easiest" workaround I can think of is to have MPD running on a server (on the cloud or on an always-on device at your home like a RPi) and use MALP on Android to play your music, though it would be streaming over the Internet rather than being stored on your phone.

    MPD v. 0.22.10: A flexible, powerful, server-side application for playing music

    I haven't used it much myself but I believe what you're describing is basically how mpd works. https://www.musicpd.org/ there's a background deamon that starts up at boot time that maintains your music library and playlists. Then you launch a client to trigger playback.
  • Audio from one PC to another (Arch -> Windows)

    The Music Player Daemon has a client-server setup with at least one windows client from a quick glance. I use mpd for local playback, and it works well.
  • Perks of having a LinuxAudio setup!
    Music: Music Player Daemon (The ALSA of music players!) MOC (Terminal frontend for MPD) ncmpcpp (Anyone who tells you there's a better music player for Linux than this, is a scammer!) kunst (Even blind people need Album Art to listen music ;) Spicetify (Spicey Spotify with pywal!)
  • Looking for a central music player
    Here is link number 1 - Previous text "MPD"
    Use MPD and the frontend of your choice for the audio server. Install Snapcast snapserver on the server and have MPD output the audio stream to it.
  • Most customizable music server?
    MPD https://www.musicpd.org/
  • Emacs vs Modern IDEs
    reddit.com/r/emacs | 2021-06-12
    The ancient version of ampc I have installed is a bit less powerful than ncmpcpp, but that doesn't really matter since I mostly use mpv & emms playlists, as I created a simple toggle function to enable and disable video playback on the fly (which mpd doesn't support).
  • [Request] Command-line audio player for Windows?
    reddit.com/r/software | 2021-05-21
    Music Player Daemon (MPD is another one I can't get to work at all. It also seems very much focused around being a music server, and library manager/player, where I just want an EXE that will play a sound file I throw at it.
  • Whole Home Audio Hardware Help
    The central server runs the SnapCast server that sends the audio streams to the clients and SnapWeb to control volume. The audio itself is controlled by MPD with MyMPD as a web frontend.
  • I have a state which fires `on_changes` of another (git.latest) state. Why does the first state still fire when the git.latest `unless` condition is true?
