[Plexamp + Media Server] Feature Request: Move MPD to Plex Media Server

superduperdudesuperduperdude Members, Plex Pass Posts: 19 Plex Pass

Please correct my understanding if it's wrong, but it seems that Plexamp's use of MPD (Music Player Daemon) is embedded into Plexamp itself, and not a part of Plex Media Server. This means that, in order to get MPD functionality, you can only do so through Plexamp, and not through an MPD-compliant client.

I suggest/request moving MPD into Plex Media Server itself to make it a first-class feature.

The benefit of this would be to separate server/client concerns out of Plexamp, allowing it to be purely a client in and of itself. Additionally, if MPD on Plex Media Server is indeed a fully-compliant implementation of MPD, people can choose which client they want to use with it, thus increasing the value of PMS as a platform.

    I think it would be a cool feature to wrap up a MPD instance on the server that could broadcast to a Sonos (using UPNP) or a Homepod (using Airplay) and treat them like a controllable player. Roon does this (but Plexamp is so much better, and cheaper)
