Connection settings

close

Closes the connection to MPD. MPD will try to send the remaining output buffer before it actually closes the connection, but that cannot be guaranteed. This command will not generate a response.

kill

Kills MPD.

password {PASSWORD}

This is used for authentication with the server. PASSWORD is simply the plaintext password.

ping

Does nothing but return "OK".

tagtypes

Shows a list of available tag types. It is an intersection of the metadata_to_use setting and this client's tag mask.

About the tag mask: each client can decide to disable any number of tag types, which will be omitted from responses to this client. That is a good idea, because it makes responses smaller. The following tagtypes sub commands configure this list.

tagtypes disable {NAME...}

Remove one or more tags from the list of tag types the client is interested in. These will be omitted from responses to this client.

tagtypes enable {NAME...}

Re-enable one or more tags from the list of tag types for this client. These will no longer be hidden from responses to this client.

tagtypes clear

Clear the list of tag types this client is interested in. This means that MPD will not send any tags to this client.

tagtypes all

Announce that this client is interested in all tag types. This is the default setting for new clients.
