How to run 5 instances of mpd using ubuntu?

Post by romanromeo »

My goal is to stream 5 playlists at the same time using one computer.
I have ubuntu 14.04.
Thank you.

create 5 config/state/database/etc files? then start mpd with "mpd path/to/config"

its also possible to have one master mpd and let the others receive the database from that instance. lookup satellite mode in docs.

Thank you!!! Also I would like to know how is it possible for every instance to start on system boot, and if I can use rtp instead of http for network streaming. :)

Of course you can. create a custom service file in /etc/systemd/system and make it do what you need to do.

As for rtp: thats a job for pulseaudio
