How to use music player daemon

Post by christon123 »

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knew of any music programs similar to mpv that can behave as a daemon. I really like the CLI interface of mpv when it's just playing mp3 files and was wondering if I could have that run on a terminal while a work.

It might seem weird but I was hoping to be able to enqueue an mp3 to the existing instance of mpv or something similar from another shell instance, because I was hoping to build a homemade IOT device that can allow people on the network to ssh in and enqueue a song whenever they want or something.

This forum is about MPD, not mpv.
I think MPD can do what you want, and you don't even need to SSH into the box running MPD.
