Does what's on the package, but can be so much more! MPD on android lives again, and does what it's made for. Altough some essential config options are missing, it's perfect! I hope to see the addition of at least a password and an easier location picker for less "geeky" users implemented in a future release. Of course, this is not all that MPD can do, but it would be a good start. Also, Database refresh button on the main app interface would be useful to verify the manual type-in path to the music folder. Again, does what it's supposed to do without any trouble. Way to go dev!
My only gripe is that I can't specify having a UNIX socket in the GUI to have a more reliable local connection, but other than that it's excellent. It's the only music player on Android I've found that supports Matroska audio (.mka) and has consistently gapless audio regardles of codec. The best part? I can use any mpd client I want to from any computer. Accept no substitutes: mpd is the real deal, and now even on Android with this app.
Perfect app for android devices connected to TV I have a UG802 running android connected to my hardisk containing music files (via usb) and to a AV Receiver (with a 5.1 setup) via HDMI. And this app helps me to use my laptop (running Linux) as a front end for playing music. Now I can control my 5.1 setup just from my laptop and dont have to walk upto my AV receiver each time. All I had to do was to install 'Ario' music player on my laptop The only thing I find broken is Volume Control. Volume + and - doesn't seem to do anything
Brilliant! This app does exactly what I've always dreamed. So many apps out there for doing the reverse (android-based MPD client), but I've always wanted an MPD _server_ on my phone and was just about to try writing it myself. Now I don't have to! Thanks!
awesome is there any chance to work without WiFi? __ yeah it's possible though playback can't be controlled. it just plays after switch off the WiFi. hope this will work as a standalone player in future.
Great for an old Android device Fill a MicroSD card with music, install ampd, and hook your old Android to your stereo. Violà, you have an awesome, remote-controlled jukebox. This is the best use I've found for an old Android device, especially one with a mediocre display.
