Re: Providing name to an URL

It's a protocol command that is not (yet) implemented by mpc. If you need it, write a mpc feature request.

Re: Providing name to an URL

In your opinion, where would MPD be able to obtain the "description of that URL", and how shall it be transmitted to its streaming client?

Re: Generic ALSA output device

MPD can use arbitrary ALSA devices.
In MPD, there is no such thing as "selectable devices". You just write the device name in mpd.conf.
If what you look at is Volumio, then ask Volumio people for support. This is not a MPD limitation you're seeing.

Re: How to use MPC

This project does not have a Wiki. There are various Wikis with MPD-related articles on the internet, but most of them spread bad and confusing advice. mpc comes with a manual page. If, after consulting official documentation, you still don't know how to use it, come back and ask specific questions....

Re: Alsa Input Plugin Long Buffer Time

You can't. MPD is designed for reliability, therefore it uses large buffers. It is not designed for your use case.
Also, your MPD version is very old and unsupported.

Re: MPD httpd Streaming issue

The point of all of MPD's streaming features is to run some kind of (public?) radio station. Make music available to others. But it is an inferior solution for listening to your own music files. Because streaming reduces audio quality, increases latency, increases CPU usage, increases memory usage, ...

Re: Database persistence

If you delete a conffile, Debian will remember that choice of yours and keep it deleted even if you uninstall and reinstall the package - just like Debian keeps modified versions of conffiles across reinstalls. That is a feature, but it may surprise you. The easiest way to restore a conffile is to p...

Re: Database persistence

Apparently, you deleted /etc/default/mpd, which is part of the "mpd" package.

Re: MPD plays, but it is not integrated into KDE Audio application

This is probably because you're running MPD as a system service, which isn't allowed to connect to your user's Pulse daemon. One simple solution is to run MPD as a user daemon, but there are also hacks to make PulseAudio available to system services.

Re: connect to mpd with password

"nclose" is not a command. "close" is a command. "\\n" is a (doubly) escaped newline character.
Your problem is not about MPD, but about basic shell usage. This is not the place to learn about your shell.

Re: connect to mpd with password

I'm confused by your question. You know how to concatenate the commands "status" and "close", but you don't know how to concatenate "password", "status" and "close"?

Re: Send multicast datagram

A "SocketAddress" is just a wrapper for "struct sockaddr" (it even has a constructor to initialize it with a "struct sockaddr"), and the rest is normal C knowledge. But there's also the class "IPv4Address" which is implicitly convertible to "SocketAddress", and that class may be easier for you to ha...

Re: MPD httpd Streaming issue

If you receive audio from port 8000, but not from ympd, then this is a ympd problem which I cannot help with.
But I would seriously suggest not using streaming for your own personal use. That's up to you, of course.

The MPD protocol has a commandd "addtagid" which can be used to annotate queue items with custom tags: https://www.musicpd.org/doc/html/protoc ... #the-queue

Re: MPD httpd Streaming issue

Which program will connect to that stream?
Note that a MPD client only controls playback; it is not supposed to do the actual audio playback.

Re: MPD httpd Streaming issue

Your "mpd --version" output doesn't show a version number, you omitted it.
Your log shows that MPD never played anything, and no client was ever connected.
