The Music Player Dæmon (mpd) is a server which simply runs in the background and plays music. You control it by connecting to it with various client programs over the network (on Linux, Windows and other operating systems).

I wrote a plugin to control it using the Car2PC: http://mpd.wikia.com/wiki/Client:Mpc-Car2PC

The beauty of mpd is that you can connect clients from various places simultaneously. The PC in my car is headless and of course the head unit doesn't let me browse my entire music collection -- it's limited to 6 'discs' which are pre-saved playlists. But I can edit those playlists using a more capable client on my laptop, or on my Nokia N800, or even on my mobile phone as shown in the attached photo. When the active playlist is changed by another client, the mpc-car2pc client will automatically save it as the currently active "disc".

I was able to install this in my car with minimal disturbance -- all I had to do was fit the Car2PC and run its USB and audio cable to underneath the passenger seat, where I fixed a Pico-ITX PC.

The phone is driving MPD through the Remuco client, which works on most JavaME-capable mobile phones (not just Symbian).
