Music Player Daemon (MPD) is a server that allows remote access for
playing audio files (Ogg-Vorbis, FLAC, MP3, Wave, and AIFF), streams
(Ogg-Vorbis, MP3) and managing playlists.  Gapless playback, buffered
output, and crossfading support is also included.  The design focus is
on integrating a computer into a stereo system that provides control
for music playback over a TCP/IP network.  The goals are to be easy to
install and use, to have minimal resource requirements (it has been
reported to run fine on a Pentium 75), and to remain stable and
The daemon is controlled through a client which need not run on the
same computer mpd runs on.  The separate client and server design
allows users to choose a user interface that best suites their tastes
independently of the underlying daemon (this package) which actually
plays music.
