#1313 confirmed enhancement

Support MPD or similar

Reported by: Powerpee@… Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: fon-plugins Version: N/A
Severity: major
Cc: Hardware: both


I find it great to see there is strong effort to improve the Fonera over time. My fonera 2.0N is my repeater(bridge) media server(DLNA) printserver and audio player. I've been looking into MPD, and the huge improvement it could have in regards to the ease of use of the Fonera. Having my mobile (Android) capable of controlling the Music output to my Amp would be so great. The Fon music playback interface is...well, kinda sux.

Unfortunately I am too much a N00b to figure out how to insert MPD in the Fonera manually. I've experimented with audio plugins containing MPD, but it crashes while creating a music database(start MPD). Besides that, the Music player doesn't recognise my USB audio card when using older versions of the plugin.

I hope you can enhance the Fonera to support Music control for mobile devices.

PS: FW is 2.3.7 beta3+(thanx to Matthijs). I've tried the RC, but it caused my setup to become unstable.

  • Hardware changed from 2.0n (FON2300) to both
  • Severity changed from unknown to major
  • Status changed from new to confirmed
  • Summary changed from Request for music control to Support MPD or similar
  • Version changed from beta3 to N/A

Supporting MPD would be great, but it'll probably not happen anytime soon... Too much other stuff to do yet.

Still, let's keep this ticket lest we forget!

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the acknowledgement of my ideas. I hope you find time to develope FON further, to the next level. Keep up the good work, and keep dreaming.

Cheers, Pee
