MPD Notify

MPD Notify notifies you on MPD's state. It will send a notification on song change and on play/pause/stop; it is not a notification daemon by itself.


MPD Notify supports connecting to remote instances. You can pass the -c option to change host and -p to change ports:

-c host   the server's host name, IP address or Unix socket path.
-p port   the TCP port to connect to, 0 for 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:

  • libnotify
  • libmpdclient

To build and install, just run the following commands:

$ make
# make clean install
