Xfmpc in action

This MPD client offers only very limited functionality. There’s repeat, random, single mode, and consume mode. Keyboard shortcuts have been implemented. There’s internationalization support.


xfmpc doesn’t have a maintainer. And it’s hard to recommend it when there are much better graphical MPD clients available.

ps_mem reports memory usage is around 17 MB. Factor in the footprint for mpd, you still have a music player that has a very light memory footprint. But then again, it’s really very basic.
