  • PlayGUI: a program that should use MPD

    January 19th, 2006
    music, playgui, tech  [html]
    Back in August, when I was thinking of how to get a program that allows several people to remotely control a central music server, a friend recommended "mpd". Not remembering correctly I looked up mplayerd, which has since dropped off the net. It didn't do what I wanted and wasn't reliable, so I wrote my own. I talked to him again over break, and found that he was really recommending mpd. I went off to have a look at mpd and it does seem a better program, especially server-side. It does everything PlayMusicD does and more. The clients though, are not quite as impressive as the server. I think I may rewrite PlayGUI to be a mpd client. The language they're using is not that different from the one I wrote PlayGUI to use, and the ways in which it is different seem to be better. So perhaps this weekend PlayGUI will be reincarnated as somejavampcpun.
