ampd – web-based MPD client

Last Updated on August 11, 2021


ampd is trivial to set up, works well (even on low power single-board computers like the Raspberry Pi), and doesn’t require a web server. Sadly it only offers a very basic feature set and has some glaring bugs. For example, it can struggle adding a large number of albums to the queue. And there’s a few playback issues we encountered.

But despite these reservations, you might still find it a useful alternative to myMPD and ympd. And because it’s a front-end to MPD, important features like gapless playback are automatically supported.

We’d like to see more functionality added particularly things like internet radio streaming.

ampd is under active development. It’s only gathered a handful of GitHub stars to date.
