    Play media files on Ubuntu 12.04 server

    I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my server. My goal was to put media files (music/videos) on there and then ssh into it and play them. I want to be able to play them from any computer that can use ssh.

    I was looking for ways to accomplish this. Any help is appreciated.

    Install mpd on the server and choose from one of several clients to control it from other machines:

    mpc - command-line tool to interface MPD
    mpd - Music Player Daemon
    mpd-dbg - Music Player Daemon debugging symbols
    mpd-sima - Automagically add titles to MPD playlist
    mpdcon.app - MPD controller for GNUstep
    mpdcron - add scrobbler, rating, play counts and other functionalities to MPD
    mpdris - media player interface (MPRIS) client for MPD
    mpdscribble - Last.fm reporting client for mpd
    mpdscribble-dbg - Last.fm reporting client for mpd - debugger symbols
    mpdtoys - small command line tools and toys for MPD
