Re: Stop Playing if no one Connected

What stream?
Of course, anything can be implemented. It's open source, after all!

Re: Speed up mpd start on rpi zero w

Your strace shows that MPD startup takes just 200ms. That's pretty good, isn't it? But prior to that, the dynamic loader takes 8 seconds (!!) to load all shared libraries. This could be optimized by reducing the number of plugins enabled at compile time, or by linking MPD statically. (Maybe prelinki...

Re: Stop Playing if no one Connected

MPD has no code to do that. And since MPD is designed as a backend server, it's a good use case to keep playing even if no client is connected - for example, I open ncmpc only if I want to change something, but most of the time, my MPD has no client at all.

Re: Problem with the database

No, don't uninstall anything - you can simply upgrade with apt/aptitude. This is seamless. Those packages are made by the same guy who also maintains the official Debian packages, he knows what he's doing.

No, because the database is not involved here.

Re: Raspberry Pi 3B+ with Allo Boss Dac Setup

MPD can use any sound chip if it has an ALSA driver. Once you have your Pi with DAC running, do "aplay -l" to see if that DAC is listed.

Re: Stop Playing if no one Connected

No. MPD is designed as a headless daemon and client connections shall only be necessary to change something. The fact that the last client has disconnected means nothing, the user is still there to listen to MPD, even if no client is connected.

Re: Set Buffer to 100% to reduce signal path

Don't mess with those settings. It will not improve quality - I mean, how could it possibly? MPD plays back digital audio, and changing buffer settings does not change the bits which are sent to the sound hardware. It will not be any more efficient - quite the contrary! It is less efficient, because...

Re: Play this song and is the current song done soon?

play_song is: "addid FILE" (which returns the song id) and then "playid ID". For "playtime_remaining", call "status" and you'll get the elapsed time in the current song, and the total song time. "play_song_next" is "addid" and "moveid" (move the new song to the position after the current song, deter...

Re: "Art" tag with currentsong?

I have never heard of such a tag, and therefore MPD does not support it. If you want MPD to support it, submit a feature request with a link to the formal specification for each codec.

Re: How to handle cuesheets?

Your bug report was very confusing. I thought this was about listing the source file twice. Since you did not upload your CUE file, there was nothing else I could do. "enable" has to be set to "yes", otherwise the file is ignored. Not true. "yes" is the default value - you don't need to specify this...

Re: Better than mopidy ?

Only one thing is sure: MPD is more efficient than Mopidy, because MPD is written in C++, and Mopidy is written in Python. For the same task, Python is usually slower than C++ by orders of magnitude. More reliable, more stable? - I have no idea, I have never used Mopidy, so I can't compare. If you h...
