NAME
       MPD - A daemon for playing music

SYNOPSIS
       mpd [options] [CONF_FILE]

DESCRIPTION
       MPD is a daemon for playing music.  Music is played through the
       configured audio output(s) (which are generally local, but can be
       remote).  The daemon stores info about all available music, and this
       info can be easily searched and retrieved.  Player control, info
       retrieval, and playlist management can all be managed remotely.

       MPD searches for a config file in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/mpd/mpd.conf then
       ~/.mpdconf then /etc/mpd.conf or uses CONF_FILE.
