    Looking for a network controlled media player to run on a headless thin client.

    Perhaps the wisdom of the group can help here, I have been playing music to my amp from the PC, not very hi-fi I know as I get the odd pop and crackle from it as the computer does something else. But!

    As I have a Ubuntu 32 bit Thin client going spare (16.04) I was wondering if there was a media player for it, most of the software I find is for a media server and that is not really what I am after, but perhaps if I say what it is I am after someone may know of, or, use a solution.

    Store mp3 files locally on the HD of the device.
    Play through it's stereo output socket.
    Have a web page server so that from another device I can drive it, select tracks, playlist etc.
    Be able to upload to it.
    Adjust the volume and if possible have an equaliser?
    Be able to disconnect from the server server page and it still continue to play.

    Perhaps some of the media servers can already do all this, I just do not know and believe I could spend hours, probably days trying to find a solution.

    So thanks in anticipation.
