About:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For this to work you will need:
  - MPD (obviously)
  - a webserver with PHP installed
  - a webkit compatible web browser (Mobile/Safari, Google Chrome)

Then just put the remote directory somewhere on your server. I have it at
/srv/http/remote but you can put it wherever you like.

Browse to it on your phone and then go to the bookmarks icon and press 'Add to
Home Screen'. The idea is for the web application to look and feel like a native
app. You can change the colour of the icon by replacing the apple-touch-icon.png
with one of the other icons in appleTouchIcons or by creating your own.

If you have any suggestions or bugs then please contact me at:

HUGE thanks to:
  - iWebKit for the style sheets; without which I this would't have looked half
    as pretty!
      http://snippetspace.com/projects/iwebkit/
    
  - Whoever made mpd.class.php.
    
  - MPD Protocol reference for my help with my custom commands.

  - Ellen Speakman for providing the touch icons. x
  
  - Radioactivity for the speaker icon.

 + css             - style sheets
 + javascript      - all of the client side code
 + mpd             - all of the server side code
  - mpd.class.php   - interfaces with the MPD server
  - mpdconfig.php   - handy config file
  - mpdcontrol.php  - my front end for controlling MPD (uses mpd.class.php)
  - mpdquery.php    - my front end for querying MPD    (uses mpd.class.php)
  - globalFunctions.php - some global functions. NEAT. UNT. TIDY.
 + images          - um... well... images...
  
Simple explanation:
  The client side javascript deals with most user input and then, using ajax,
  passes commands to the mpd files stored on the server. They all return some
  text values which are formatted by the javascript and then passed to the page.
