NAME

MPD - A daemon for playing music

SYNOPSIS

mpd [options] [CONF_FILE]

DESCRIPTION

MPD is a daemon for playing music. Music is played through the configured audio output(s) (which are generally local, but can be remote). The daemon stores info about all avail‐ able music, and this info can be easily searched and retrieved. Player control, info retrieval, and playlist management can all be managed remotely. MPD searches for a config file in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/mpd/mpd.conf then ~/.mpdconf then /etc/mpd.conf or uses CONF_FILE. Read more about MPD at <http://www.musicpd.org/>.

OPTIONS

--help Output a brief help message. --kill Kill the currently running mpd session. The pid_file parameter must be specified in the config file for this to work. --no-daemon Don't detach from console. --stderr Print messages stderr. --verbose Verbose logging. --version Print version information.

FILES

~/.mpdconf User configuration file. /etc/mpd.conf Global configuration file.

SEE ALSO
