# An example configuration file for MPD
# See the mpd.conf man page for a more detailed description of each parameter.
# Required files and directories ##############################################
#
# This setting controls the top directory which MPD will search to discover the
# available audio files and add them to the daemon's online database.
#
music_directory "/media/winc/1299/Music/"
#
# This setting sets the MPD internal playlist directory. The purpose of this
# directory is storage for playlists created by MPD. The server will use
# playlist files not created by the server but only if they are in the MPD
# format.
#
playlist_directory "/home/rion/.mpd/playlists"
#
# This setting sets the location of the MPD database. This file is used to
# load the database at server start up and store the database while the
# server is not up.
#
db_file "/home/rion/.mpd/mpd.db"
#
# These settings are the locations for the daemon log files for the daemon.
# These logs are great for troubleshooting, depending on your log_level
# settings.
#
log_file "/home/rion/.mpd/mpd.log"
error_file "/home/rion/.mpd/mpd.error"
###############################################################################
# Optional files ##############################################################
#
# This setting sets the location of the file which stores the process ID
# for use of mpd --kill and some init scripts. This setting is disabled by
# default.
#
pid_file "/home/rion/.mpd/mpd.pid"
#
# This setting sets the location of the file which contains information about
# most variables to get MPD back into the same general shape it was in before
# it was brought down. This setting is disabled by default.
#
state_file "/home/rion/.mpd/mpdstate"
#
###############################################################################
# General music daemon options ################################################
#
# This setting specifies the user that MPD will run as, if set. MPD should
# never run as root and you may use this setting to make MPD change its user
# id after initialization. Do not use this setting if you start MPD as an
# unprivileged user. This setting is disabled by default, and the server will
# run as root.
#
user "rion"
#
# This setting sets the address for the daemon to listen on. Careful attention
# should be paid if this is assigned to anything other then the default, any.
# This setting can deny access to control of the daemon.
#
# For network
bind_to_address "localhost"
#
# And for Unix Socket
#bind_to_address "~/.mpd/socket"
#
# This setting is the port that is desired for the daemon to get assigned to.
#
port "6600"
#
# This setting controls the type of information which is logged. Available
# setting arguments are "default", "secure" or "verbose". The "verbose" setting
# argument is recommended for troubleshooting, though can quickly stretch
# available resources on limited hardware storage.
#
log_level "default"
#
# If you have a problem with your MP3s ending abruptly it is recommended that
# you set this argument to "no" to attempt to fix the problem. If this solves
# the problem, it is highly recommended to fix the MP3 files with vbrfix
# (available from <http://www.willwap.co.uk/Programs/vbrfix.php>), at which
# point gapless MP3 playback can be enabled.
#
#gapless_mp3_playback "yes"
#
# This setting enables MPD to create playlists in a format usable by other
# music players.
#
#save_absolute_paths_in_playlists "no"
#
# This setting defines a list of tag types that will be extracted during the
# audio file discovery process. Optionally, 'comment' can be added to this
# list.
#
metadata_to_use "artist,album,title,track,name,genre,date,composer,performer,disc"
#
###############################################################################
# Symbolic link behavior ######################################################
#
# If this setting is set to "yes", MPD will discover audio files by following
# symbolic links outside of the configured #music_directory "path_to_your_music_collection"
#
#follow_outside_symlinks "yes"
#
# If this setting is set to "yes, MPD will discover audio files by following
# symbolic links inside of the configured #music_directory "path_to_your_music_collection"
#
#follow_inside_symlinks "yes"
#
###############################################################################
# Zeroconf / Avahi Service Discovery ##########################################
#
# If this setting is set to "yes", service information will be published with
# Zeroconf / Avahi.
#
#zeroconf_enabled "yes"
#
# The argument to this setting will be the Zeroconf / Avahi unique name for
# this MPD server on the network.
#

#
###############################################################################
# Audio Output ################################################################
#
# MPD supports various audio output types, as well as playing through multiple
# audio outputs at the same time, through multiple audio_output settings
# blocks. Setting this block is optional, though the server will only attempt
# autodetection for one sound card.
#
# See <http://mpd.wikia.com/wiki/Configuration#Audio_Outputs> for examples of
# other audio outputs.
#
# An example of an ALSA output:
#
audio_output {
type "alsa"
name "My ALSA Device"
device "mpdvol" # optional
format "44100:16:2" # optional
}
#
# An example of an OSS output:
#
#audio_output {
# type "oss"
# name "My OSS Device"
# device "/dev/dsp" # optional
# format "44100:16:2" # optional
#}
#
# An example of a shout output (for streaming to Icecast):
#
#audio_output {
# type "shout"
# encoding "ogg" # optional
# name "My Shout Stream"
# host "localhost"
# port "8000"
# mount "/mpd.ogg"
# password "hackme"

# server "remote_server"
# sink "remote_server_sink"
#}
#
## An example of a null output (for no audio output):
#
#audio_output {
# type "null"
# name "My Null Output"
#}
#
# This setting will change all decoded audio to be converted to the specified
# format before being passed to the audio outputs. By default, this setting is
# disabled.
#
#audio_output_format "44100:16:2"
#
# If MPD has been compiled with libsamplerate support, this setting specifies
# the sample rate converter to use. Possible values can be found in the
# mpd.conf man page or the libsamplerate documentation. By default, this is
# setting is disabled.
#

#
# MPD has limited volume controls, to use them pick one below. If one is not
# specified it may be autodetected at startup, depending on the dependencies
# which were compiled into the server.
#
# An example for controlling an ALSA mixer:
#
mixer_type "alsa"
mixer_device "mpdvol"
mixer_control "MPD"
#
# An example for controlling an OSS mixer:
#
#mixer_type "oss"
#mixer_device "/dev/mixer"

# result in the volume of all playing audio to be adjusted so the output has
# equal "loudness".
#
#volume_normalization "no"
#
###############################################################################
# MPD Internal Buffering ######################################################
#
# This setting adjusts the size of internal decoded audio buffering. Changing

# are doing.
#
#audio_buffer_size "2048"
#
# This setting controls the percentage of the buffer which is filled before
# beginning to play. Increasing this reduces the chance of audio file skipping,
# at the cost of increased time prior to audio playback.
#
#buffer_before_play "10%"
#
###############################################################################
# HTTP Streaming Proxy ########################################################
#
# This setting specifies the HTTP proxy to use for playing HTTP streams. By
