Audio buffer with internet streams

Post by rad »


does anybody knows, if there is a way how to check how much of the audio buffer is filled? It would be nice to be able to monitor if the buffer is filled fast enough (useful for internet streams on poor connection).

It does not seam there is a direct method (through client), but maybe there is some workaround (on linux machine).

No, MPD does not expose any information like that. MPD's goal is never to fill the player buffer completely; it is enough to always have "enough" data just in time.
