So I just got MPD working and I love it! The only problem I have is that if I have my mpd client (ncmpcpp) running, and then I go to open firefox and navigate to a video on youtube, the mpd client seems to "hog" the audio output. The flash video can't play audio.
When i stop the song playing on mpd, the flash video can playaudio again, but now MPD is unable to play anything until I close the actual youtube tab on firefox. It's almost like only one of them is allowed to play audio at a time, and they fight for it and both hog it.
I've posted my /etc/mpd.conf file below (with all commented lines removed).
Any suggestions on how to make it so that mpd doesn't hog the audio output? Thank you very much for any help!
