Some basic questions

Post by Segfault »

OK, I'm very new to MPD. I did my homework, but ... maybe I was looking into wrong places. So here we go:
1. Will MPD stream compressed audio file like it is on the hard drive, e. g. AAC, OPUS? Or it will decode it and stream as WAV?
2. I'd like to install it in my headless home server. Keeping it as lean as possible, what are the minimal configure options I need to stream on my LAN (IPv4)? The server itself will not make any sound.

Don't use MPD to stream your music. Install MPD on the machine that has the speakers. If your music is stored on a different machine, use the "satellite" setup as described in the manual,
