MPD_sima's documentation

MPD_sima is meant to auto-magically queue tracks in MPD, it is a non interactive client for MPD.

Actually there is no magic involved, it relies on music metadata found in music files tags and external information providers such as last.fm. Then to use MPD_sima (or any advanced music players, MPD among them), you need to ensure your library is correctly tagged (see Music library metadata convention).

The default setting for MPD_sima is to queue similar artists thanks to last.fm suggestions but there are other possibilities.

To queue tracks from similar artists:
  • start playing a track in MPD

  • launch MPD_sima

# runs against localhost MPD (or whatever is set in MPD_HOST/MPD_PORT)
mpd-sima

# runs against a specific MPD server
mpd-sima --host mpd.example.org
