Re: Playlist does not play

Your MPD version is very old and unsupported.
But it looks like your M3U contains absolute paths. Can you confirm that there exists a directory named "Herbie Hancock" at the very root of your Linux installation?

Re: volume resets to 40% after reboot

Then you should ask the Moode developer for support.
Moode is not supported by the MPD project.

Re: DTS-WAV files

You can't overwrite the format. But you could use stickers to mark those files which you believe contain DTS encoded into standard PCM.

Is this question about MPD or about the operating system you chose to install on your Pi?

Re: MPD does not play flac, Failed to open "My ALSA Device"

How did you install MPD? Which version?
How do you launch MPD?
Does MPD have permission to access the sound devices?

Re: MPD overwriting radio metadata

MPD will always pick up tags from the radio stream, and this stream has a "Icy-Name" response header with a rather dull value ("icy-name: franceinfo-midfi.mp3").
But what shouldn't happen is that MPD "forgets" all the other tag values. Write a bug report, and I'll investigate it.

Re: Speed up mpd start on rpi zero w

The line where MPD opens its configuration file: openat(AT_FDCWD, "/etc/mpd.conf", O_RDONLY|O_NOCTTY|O_LARGEFILE|O_CLOEXEC) = 3 .. is the point where MPD takes over control. Before that, no MPD code runs, it's all the ld.so loading shared libraries. The static build is mostly about the libraries MPD...

Re: Speed up mpd start on rpi zero w

This has reduced the startup time by 2 seconds, that's a lot! To reduce this further, you need to reduce the number of library dependencies further. For example, it loads libharfbuzz, which is a text layout library, but MPD doesn't render any text ... this is probably pulled in by FFmpeg. You can ei...

Re: Speed up mpd start on rpi zero w

It needs 0.4 seconds just to find one single shared library. Your strace suggests that your library search path is extremely long. Did you do any special hacks to make it that long? For example, set LD_LIBRARY_PATH?

Re: websocket disconnected

This is not a MPD problem, because MPD cannot do anything with WebSockets.

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.
