View Full Version : [all variants] EMMS and MPD configuration

June 30th, 2009, 11:26 AM

I'm an emacs user, and as most emacs users, I try to do everything within emacs. Recently I've started taking a look at managing my music library and playing it with EMMS. Specifically, I'd like to use MPD as the backend.

I can confirm that MPD works, since I used GMPC before this and everything was fine.

The documentation online is very sparse on EMMS and MPD, and it seems the only pages I find are related to the original dev/maintainer for Ubuntu. I've set up emms-mpd according to the documentation on the EMMS website and scrounged a few dotfiles here and there, but the browser doesn't work.

Has anyone here ever tried to use EMMS with MPD, and have you managed to get the emms-browser to work as intended ? Right now I can play music with emms-play-directory and others, but I'd like to use the browser instead.
