Music Player Daemon
  3 reviews

Music Player Daemon (MPD) is a server that allows remote access for playing audio files (Ogg-Vorbis, FLAC, MP3, Wave, and AIFF), streams (Ogg-Vorbis, MP3) and managing playlists. Gapless playback, buffered output, and crossfading support is also included. The design focus is on integrating a computer into a stereo system that provides control for music playback over a TCP/IP network. The goals are to be easy to install and use, to have minimal resource requirements (it has been reported to run fine on a Pentium 75), and to remain stable and flexible.

The daemon is controlled through a client which need not run on the same computer mpd runs on. The separate client and server design allows users to choose a user interface that best suites their tastes independently of the underlying daemon (this package) which actually plays music.

This one does it all, Streaming to Icecast & Shoutcast, Built in http streamserver, OSS4, Alsa, pulseaudio, jack, jack2, avahi. And since its server client model there are alot of clients available. One thing tho on 64bit this one totally makes skype faint. So I will be on Gmail Talk and Voice.
