mpd (Music Player Daemon)

Music Player Daemon (MPD) allows remote access for playing music (MP3,
Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, AAC, Mod, MIDI, and wave files) and managing
playlists.  MPD is designed for integrating a computer into a stereo
system that provides control for music playback over a local network. It
also makes a great desktop music player, especially if you are a console
junkie, like frontend options, or restart X often.

Some optional and important dependencies, detected automatically:
* ffmpeg: is recommended for support a wide variety of audio file types
* libshout: enables shoutcast streaming output
* libmms: used for play mms:// and mmsh:// type network streams
* id3lib: add support for edit ID3 tags
* avahi: add support for discovering services on network
* yajl: add support for open soundcloud.com streams

Other optional dependencies, detected automatically:
libmpdclient, musepack-tools, lame, faad2, fluidsynth, libsidplay2,
twolame, libnfs, jack, zziplib.

NOTE: Be sure to edit the config file (/etc/mpd.conf or ~/mpd.conf)
before running the daemon.
