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.

Needs network support This would be really useful if I could tell it to connect to a music library on a network drive rather than on the phone

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

It works! Now nice if it can pull music from a network share.

Tim Vaughan

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!

Maarten Trimbos

Awesome! Running aMPD on an old smartphone connected to the amp in my living room. Mounted NAS music share with Cifsmanager and my old phone is my new networked audiostreamer now, controllable from any device on my lan network. Great job man, thanks a lot!

Nizar Souissi

Does what it promises. Thx dev

Mike Andreasen

Awesome So glad you ported this now older android phones are more useful ;)

Gideon Heinert

Fantastic programme. Works perfectly right away.

Sergii Pylypenko

Why didn't I find this app earlier?

ALok Null

Now old devices have a use! This is perfect so far. Though a rudimentary client would be nice, ie display current playing track, volume and maybe a play/pause button. Just as a nice fallback/panic controls.

Works flawlessly... tguillem is my hero. He has ported the original MPD code from linux to Android, and the port works very well with no noticeable bugs. It supports additional functions of richer clients, such as volume control and seek within file while playing, as well. This makes it even better than the original distribution of MPD on Ubuntu...

Dylan Braithwaite

Great Works just as I'd expect now. Easy to set up and sound quality is fine.

Ed Ward

Playlists Fantastic app and thank you for the excellent work. How can I get Playlists to work?

Geoffrey Métais

Bien ouej Really nice, especially for devices connected to TV or Hi-Fi installation.

Adam Bellinson

Yes Holy ----. Just what I wanted. Thank you, dev!

Castor Sky

Great port! aMPD turned my good old Defy into a garage-media-player.

Stewart Berntson

Love it It works great for my purpose, and allows me to play my music/favorite network streams in my bedroom where I don't have a dedicated media player set up.


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.

Benjamin Oakes

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.

Jose Mendoza

Simple mpd server It just "werks". It's like a simplified version of mpd. Maybe being able to manually update the database and or add other outputs would be cool. However it works great already and solid as is.

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!

aMPD + MPDroid Make Local Music Easy This app runs a server which indexes local music files by tags and filename. The MPDroid client makes it easy to search by tags (artist, album, song title, etc.) or browse by filename to create queues and playlists and play music in a way that seems comparable to desktop players - a design most mobile music apps lack.

Siddharth Gupta

Awesome! Works as described! Been looking all over for such a solution.

Alexandre Ostrenko

Can't save playlist Can't save playlist. Can't put playlist to play on startup. Cif directory can't be fully scanned, some size limit issue. However it works...but with limitation and version was not updated from 2013

A Google User

Really cool to have a personal mpd server on my phone, nice combination with easysshfs and a media server :D database proxy support would make it even more useful.

Dietrich Daroch

I'd love to use sockets instead. Localhost is not reachable sometimes after network changes

Anakin Riggs

Fantastic Just what I needed - I use mpd on linux, didnt expect to find it on android. Works perfectly, thankyou. Wifi not required for a local connection, connect client to works even in airplane mode.

Ogg tag fail It doesn't recognize when an ogg file has multiple genre tags. Only reads one of the tags. Hard to keep my music collection organized without tags being read correctly.
