MPD A daemon for playing music

mpd [options] [CONF_FILE]

MPD is a daemon for playing music. Music is played through the configured audio output(s) (which are generally local, but can be remote). The daemon stores
info about all available music, and this info can be easily searched and retrieved. Player control, info retrieval, and playlist management can all be man Äê
aged remotely.

MPD searches for a config file in ~/.mpdconf then /etc/mpd.conf or uses CONF_FILE.
