Well, I have not actually posted that I have tried and installed MPD yet, but I found a bug. Suddenly the cpu usage jumps form around 2-5 % upto 25-30%! This is totally unacceptable!
Bug-report had already been filed, with a proposed tweak. I confirmed the bug, and that the tweak apparently works.
Tweak – fix sudden high cpu usage:
What you do, is add to /etc/mpd.conf
name “My ALSA Device”
device “hw:0,0” # optional
format “44100:16:2” # optional
This worked for me.
