Could this plus Mopidy (http://www.mopidy.com/) be a better Spotify solution that doesn't require a special build of xbmc? I dont have my htpc here so I can't test it Smile

Guys, what do you think about latest version (2.0.6)

Has anyone noticed it is faster (when loading artists) for larger libraries?

I've made it work with mpd 0.16.5, anyone has issues with older versions of server? I can't test it on anything but 0.16

Is it possible for this plugin to list music in the same style as the music section, using the assigned skin?

I'd like to use this but at present the navigation is very hard for large libraries and as the "music" items aren't shown as a library to XMBC, XBMC cannot retrieve metadata on them.

I'm thinking of something similar to what PleXBMC managed to do, where the app integrated closely to XBMC's look and feel.

Hi I have a plan to rewrite client using and ortinary audio addon API, so it would be skin-independent, unfortunately I am quite busy and do not have enough time to do that

Sorry if I missed it in this thread, but is there a way to prevent the shutdown / suspend process from happening while listening to music with mpd?

Perhaps triggering the "Inhibit idle shutdown" during playback?

EDIT: nevermind i hacked something together in your code using xbmc-send

I don't know if this thread is still alive and seen by the author of MPDclient addon. Mayby someone else has an answer or an idea to my problem:
Why is there no BACK or HOME button at the mdpclient screen. MPDclient screen is allways in fullscreen mode in every skin I used and I can't touch the BACK or HOME button e. g. of the Confluence skin. I'll try to use XBMC/KODI at a pure touchscreen environment (no mouse, no keyboard). But when I want to leave the mpdclient I have to use a right click mouse button or a ESC key from keyboard. Is there another way or trick to switch to another area of XBMC only with touch action (left klick actions)?
