Doesn't mpd already do all of this?
Anyway, mpd was designed for a dedicated music box and is the only music player I've found that does not skip when my system is fully loaded.

  • runs on a p75
  • communicates via tcp/ip
  • tcp/ip means many front-ends: php, shell, gnome, Qt, GNUstep, windowmaker, curses, etc
  • handles flac, ogg, mp3
  • keeps all the metadata in a database
  • has audioscrobbler support
See the mpd features page for the full list.
So, why should I use xmms2 instead? What have I not noticed?
