#919 confirmed enhancement

Replace Music Plugin with Music Player Deamon (MPD)

Reported by: Voorstad Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: Firmware 2.3
Component: fon-plugin-music Version: N/A
Severity: unknown
Cc: Hardware: both


Music Player Daemon (MPD) is a flexible, powerful, server-side application for playing music. Through plugins and libraries it can play a variety of sound files while being controlled by its network protocol

It is installable on OpenWrt? and so should be able to run on Fonera as well! This is a great usibility enhencement for the fonera. Fon could / should add the €2,- Usb soundcards to there webshop to sell with the router....

Good thing that there a numbers of clients. This could be tested without a LUA interface first....

  • Hardware changed from 2.0n (FON2300) to both
  • Milestone set to Firmware 2.3
  • Status changed from new to confirmed
  • Type changed from request to enhancement
  • Version changed from (Gari jr.) to N/A

An initial look at mpd shows that it is quite big (or rather, it has a lot of dependencies, notable glib2 which is big). We might be able to disable some stuff (and perhaps make glib2 a bit smaller), but it's not unlikely that this would need to become an fmg plugin. If so, we might reconsider the use of mpd (since it's a feature to have a music player just by plugging in a audio stick, without having to mess with a hub and an USB disk as well).
