MPD Notify sends you a notification whenever MPD's state changes (play/pause/stop) as well as when the currently playing song changes. For this to work, it requires a running notification daemon: it is not a notification daemon by itself.
MPD Notify supports connecting to remote instances. You can pass the
-c flag to change the host
-p flag to change the port:
-c host the server's host name, IP address or Unix socket path. -p port the TCP port to connect to, or 0 for the default port. If "host" is a Unix socket path, this parameter is ignored.
To be able compile and run MPD Notify, you will need to have the following dependencies installed:
To build and install, just run the following commands:
