mpd_0.12.1_armv5tel.ipk
glurp_0.11.6_armv5tel.ipk

Low-power music playing goodness! This version of MPD just has Tremor (Vorbis) and MAD (mp3) support, so it should run without any extra packages. Allows gapless playback and crossfading on the Zaurus.

You need to edit /etc/mpd.conf before it'll run.

If anybody wants support for more formats (FLAC, AAC, Musepack, and Mod are possible) just send me a message and I'll see about doing an updated version.

MPC is a scriptable, command-line client for MPD. Glurp is a GTK+2 based client, and is very nice to use - however, it constantly polls the daemon for information about the current song, so it takes up a notable number of CPU cycles to have it running. The music will keep playing if you close it, though (one of the main advantages of MPD).

You can also use Glurp/MPC to control MPD on a remote host - it's a simple setting in Glurp, and you just need to set the MPD_HOST variable for MPC.

Hi Ikkakujyu,

Can you provide a mpd.conf so that the music stored on /mnt/cf2 can be played ?
I am using beta3 as root.

Thanks for the package

and another question:
I'm still looking for a graphical player which is able to play shoutcast streams. XMMS cannot do so (the codec is not the problem, but rather the URL format or something like that).
mplayer plays them nicely, but it's not graphical.
The mplayer package compiled by Meanie which has gmplayer plays stuttering. Bad performance.

I'd like to use a graphical client for playing these kinds of streams from StreamTuner.

glurp looks promising...!

Thanks a lot

My ipk installs a sample mpd.conf to /etc. It's well commented, so should be easy to understand. Everything you need should be in the first block of settings. I don't know your exact setup, so I encourage you to edit it on your own. Keep in mind that MPD will fail if any of the directories it needs to write to don't exist - I would actually consider this a bug. I'll see about filing a report

Very good question! Made me find a feature I didn't know about. MPD can handle streams, so therefore, glurp can as well. Just open the playlist dialogue and click the plus sign, then select "add URL". Conversely, if you install MPC (which you should anyway, even if you plan on using glurp) just type "mpc add <url>".

MPD is also capable of creating shoutcast/icecast streams on its own, though I haven't enabled this in my build. I'm working on a more complete build, though certain aspects of pdaXrom are getting in my way.
