If it works, yes, I would be.

What does that mean? That I have to compile it myself? From my limited search, it looks like that might be an art all by itself.

x86 Version

Hi, Where can I find the latest x86 Windows version of MPD? I have a new[ish] client machine from which I plan to run MPD but mpd.exe doesn't run presumably because it's Windows 10 Pro x86 whereas my other client is 64 bit. The machine processor is an Atom D525 (4Gb RAM, 500Gb HD) which is supposed ...

Re: Music Location

You need to post the "update" command to MPD. One way to do that is to use the command-line tool "mpc" which you apparently do not have installed. There are other ways with other clients, but I don't know which client you're using. But "mpd update" doesn't do anything, because "mpd.exe" doesn't hav...

Re: Music Location

Hi Max, MPD doesn't care about your complex folder structure. But did you update the database after changing the configuration? "mpc update" I altered that one parameter, so music_directory="m:/" (bear in mind there isn't a single MP3 in the root of M:, all of them are in subfolders up to three deep...

Re: Music Location

Hi Max, You can set music_directory to "m:\", but why would you want "c:\" ? Well, that was just a test (I corrected music_directory later to "c:/") but MPD couldn't see any of the MP3s in the c:\mpd folder. Nor would it work as "m:/", hence my question: given that my MP3 are stored in a complex but...

Music Location

Hi, Next question :) I store my music in type/artist/album folders is on my NAS drive (M:) so, for example, I store Alice Cooper MP3s on my NAS drive under "Albums\Alice Cooper\" and the album names with playlists in the "Alice Cooper" folder. I have separate folders (with subfolders) for music coll...

Thank you. That worked :)

Re: Remote Connection To MPD

Hi Mascaret, Did you authorize mpd to go through win10's firewall? Working fine here (mpd on win10, MALP on android). If you mean is there are firewall port configured, yes. As said in my initial post, SERVER firewall is configured to allow TCP & UDP traffic in both directions on port 6600. I have t...

Re: Remote Connection To MPD

Why do you want to configure bind_to_address? Like I said, I just copied it from some guy's blog. This isn't "linuxy", this is "IPy", this is about configuring servers for the Internet Protocol, and that's the same on Windows and Linux. But on most Windows programs, you usually don't have options l...

Re: Remote Connection To MPD

Not exactly true. UDP is not used. And what does "multi-directional" mean? I can remove the firewall rules for UDP but would that really be a problem (having something there that it isn't using)? Multi-directional i.e. both ways (inbound and outbound). Is there a control port setting I am missing f...

OK, I submitted the file to virustotal.com and that suggested it was OK.

Job done.

Thanks :)

Remote Connection To MPD

Hi, Having installed and configured MPD, I set about demonstrating that it worked on the same machine (aka SERVER). I used the client MPDCtrl on Microsoft Store. It worked fine on the host system, using 127.0.0.1 as the host and 6600 as the port. Unfortunately, I have not been as successful in runni...

MPD Potentially Harmful?

Hi, New guy here :) I'm an unashamed Windows user and just downloaded the latest Windows binary to be informed (by Windows) that, "mpd.exe was blocked because it could harm your device". Checking the relevant MS page, I got this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/security/threat-protection/mi...
