MPD on Qnap NAS??

Post by Buggy » June 23rd, 2016, 7:02 am

Hi guys,

I'll like to setup a MPD-server to stream my private music collection. All my music is placed on an old Qnap TS-209 NAS-server and I was wondering if it's possible to install MPD on the NAS, instead of setting up a separate MPD-server?

I've found a tutorial on how to install MPD on a Synology NAS, but I don't know if it will work on a Qnap NAS.

https://forum.synology.com/enu/viewtopic.php?t=54528

Do any of you guys know if it's possible to install MPD on a Qnap NAS (and if so - how?)??

Cheers
Buggy

Your NAS can already "stream" music in a way much superior to MPD's streaming features. It's called SMB, CIFS or NFS. Why on hell would you want to do MPD a job that your NAS can already do better out-of-the box?

Hi Max

I don't think you understand what I mean by "streaming". SMB, CIFS and NFS are ways of sharing files (I use SMB), but what I need is a way to "stream" and control music playback from my smartphone/tablet to my amplifier and I can't do that with my NAS. I think the best way to do it, is by setting up a MPD-server and use a MPD-client on my smartphone.

That is not called "streaming". What you mean is called simply "playing".

@lg.lindstrom> Max aint a marketing guy. :D

@buggy> Max is right: play music on your NAS. But QNAP app center does not list any MPD packages. You should contact QNAP support forums for help building or crosscompiling MPD. What audio output? Builtin or USB audio interface?

:D have come to realize that .. but still,, a polite behaviour can be expected from everyone on a forum. Especially from moderators.

I think he will scare lot of users away from this forum and in the long run from using MPD,, and that is sad.

Thanks for your comments on my posts,, I value them.
