Mpd not updating
I'd rather not update mpd as it seems to be working fine.
Linux has a ton of options when it comes to media players.
It will read that directory and any subdirectories, so there is no need to worry about folders for artists or albums getting in the way.
There really isn’t much of a reason to do this on system wide configuration, but if you need to, you can.What I have done is kept the default Voyage mpd directory structure (/var/lib/mpd/*), and then mounted my NAS as /var/lib/mpd/music/nas.BTW, after rescanning the database, it is better to use command line or web interface to reboot the box once - it will commit the changes to the disk before reboot.This guide is just going to cover some of the basics, but feel free to explore a bit more.The first option to pay attention to is probably the most important one, the music directory.
