Allows MPD on Linux to play audio directly from a soundcard using
alsa://. Audio is formatted as
44.1 kHz 16-bit stereo (CD format). Examples:
mpc add alsa:// plays audio from device hw:0,0
mpc add alsa://hw:1,0 plays audio from device
Plays audio CDs. The URI has the form:
cdda:// plays the whole
disc in the default drive.
||If the CD drive does not specify a byte order, MPD assumes it is the CPU's native byte order. This setting allows overriding this.|
Opens remote files or streams over HTTP.
Plays Spotify tracks using the despotify
library. The despotify plugin uses a
spt:// URI and a Spotify
URL. So for example, you can add a song with:
mpc add spt://spotify:track:5qENVY0YEdZ7fiuOax70x1
You need a Spotify premium account to use this plugin, and you need to setup username and password in the configuration file. The configuration settings are global since the despotify playlist plugin use the same settings.
||Sets up the Spotify username (required)|
||Sets up the Spotify password (required)|
||Set up if high bitrate should be used for Spotify tunes. High bitrate sounds better but slow systems can have problems with playback (default yes).|
Allows MPD to access files on NFSv3 servers without actually
mounting them (i.e. in userspace, without help from the
kernel's VFS layer). All URIs with the
nfs:// scheme are used according to
mpc add nfs://servername/path/filename.ogg
Note that this usually requires enabling the "insecure" flag
in the server's
because MPD cannot bind to so-called "privileged" ports.
Don't fear: this will not make your file server insecure;
the flag was named in a time long ago when privileged ports
were thought to be meaningful for security. By today's
standards, NFSv3 is not secure at all, and if you believe it
is, you're already doomed.
