Use phone as remote to client without screen

Discuss client development (or even MPD development if you feel so inclined), ask questions about the client libs, MPD feature requests from client developers, etc...

Use phone as remote to client without screen

Post by zoriander » April 29th, 2014, 11:05 am

hi,

I would like to use the Music Player Daemon as a music server throughout my house. I have quite a few old thinclients which have an internet port and an audio jack so I was thinking about using these as clients.
However I don't want to attach a keyboard, screen,... to it. I would like to control the music being played on these devices by some sort of application on a phone or on a computer.

I am pretty familiar with writing a GUI for that application but I would like to know which commands to use so that the MPD server knows to which thinclient it has to stream which music.

Is there anything that exists that I can start from?

greetings,

Toon
