many players and one server?

Post by bern » April 28th, 2019, 6:25 pm

Hi,
I'm new in mpd and I'm considering using it in my home network.
I have home ubuntu server with 2 HD attached with many services and several home Lan and wifi clients connected to the ubuntu server.

I would like to configure MPD as a music server with main database and Lan and wifi clients as players. Is it possible with MPD? If so how to do it?
Regards,
Bern

Your description is a bit fuzzy, do you mean something like this? https://www.musicpd.org/doc/html/user.html#satellite

Thanks,
I'm trying the database "proxy" plugin.
Currently have some issues with connection to samba share.
