Linux Music Player Daemon

An interesting alternative to traditional music players...
The Music Player Daemon (MPD) is a very different, and very cool, way to play back music online. Unlike typical music-playing applications, MPD does not have a graphical (or even command-line) interface. Instead, a variety of clients interact with MPD over the network.

This means multiple applications (clients) can interact with MPD simultaneously. One client might have an iTunes-style graphical user interface, another might run from the command line, and a third might display the currently playing song in the status bar of a Web browser or text editor. About 60 clients can already communicate with MPD, and at least 40 more are being developed.
