Upmpdcli and mpd on separate streamer and NAS

Post by springwood64 » 2020-07-31 09:39

Anyone using Snakeoil on separate streamer and NAS with upmpdcli on NAS and mpd on streamer?

I'm currently running upmpdcli+mpd on the streamer, but considering experimenting with just mpd on the streamer, running upmpdcli on the NAS.

Pete,

I run Minimserver on the NAS and upmpdcli on the player. If you choose that approach the player uses the latest version of MPD that SnakeOil OS has by default.
Everything is a remix: Copy, Transform, Combine.

I've allocated the player process to one cpu and set the process priority, but SO has applied it only to upmpdcli, not mpd. I'll see if applying these tweaks to mpd improves audio, which I think means I have to run upmpdcli on the NAS
