Highly configurable, but the raw plugin lacks many basic things, no obvious way to add a track to the playlist for example. Does not seem to reconnect if mpd goes down.
Not what that guy was saying about not working, i'm on nightly and it works just fine.
Incredible awesome addon! Even beats most of the stand alone mpd clients I've tested so far... Keep the great work coming... :)
This plugin is not compatible with FF 5.0 and above. Author shows no interest in this project any longer.
In firefox 13.0.1 I can connect to the server, but in the playlist "move to next in queue" not working :(
This is the best client for mpd i have found... I also created a patch so it runs again on recent firefox: http://www.gargan.org/en/Mozilla_Extensions/Music_Player_Minion/ - and again for ffox 11
Please update this for Firefox 7. This add on was recommended by Bryston LTD to manage music on one of their digital music systems.
I've updated this to support 5, 6, etc. through 9. I've done nothing beyond modifying install.rdf. This will continue to be available on my site but may be removed at any time.
Please update it for Firefox 5.0
I would like to use it
How to change this add-on compatibility to work with FF4.
This is how to: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Editing_an_add-on_to_change_its_compatibility
Later enable top "Menu Bar" or bottom "Status Bar" to be able to use this add-on
Work around until Minion is upgraded for FF4 is to install Nightly Tester Tools and check off Force Addon Compatibility
Better mpd companion I've seen. Any chance to see it usable under FF4?
I have been using MPM since the mpd-webamp days (2007). It has come a long way. I have tested over 20 MPD clients. Music Player Minion is the best.
The one star reviews are from individuals that either do not understand what Music Player Daemon and Music Player Minion are, or they simply did not read the documentation. MPD and MPM are very easy to install and configure. You can literally get MPD running on a Linux box in less than 15 minutes.
With MPM installed on any computer with a Firefox Browser (MPM even works on a MAC) you will be able to easily control your MPD Jukebox. MPM is very lightweight, fast, and does exactly what it is supposed to do.

MPM is the greatest. Props to Chris Seickel and Aurélien Requiem.
This already perfect add-on became even better in version 2. Good design, excellent functionality - keep up the good work!
Not sure what went wrong for Johannes Rohr or nanfor.
Music Player Minion worked perfectly on my XP and Ubuntu FF 3.6 installs.
Perfectly. Couple of clicks, restart FF, click 'Minion', enter server, ok, MPD server is playing music.
Nice idea, but does not work at all. The sidebar cannot be opened, the settings dialogue does not close after clicking o.k. The statusbar controls have had very weird effects...
It doesn't work for me, how can a I get a support?
IMO this + MPD beats any other music software I've ever seen on any platform. In other words, this is GREAT
Was I ever glad to find this plugin!!!
Very nice interface, but I have one small complaint, and a HUGE bug -
First, I'd love a way to move or even remove the control buttons from the status bar of the browser.
BUG - hitting "pause" crashes MPD 0.15.6 on OpenSUSE Linux (server). When I hit the "pause" button, the music first starts skipping all over the place, and then quits. I have to explicitly kill & restart the mpd server to fix the issue. I can successfully pause / play from Gnome MPC with no issue.
Excellent, all of my computers run Linux and i hate how most media players use up so much memory when i'm trying to browse the web (although my desktop/server has 8gb). I was planning to write my own php script to do just this on my apache server but now i don't need to.
Great! That's what I looking for:) Thanks.
After all the hastle I had getting mpd to work on the server, it was brilliant to have a client that just worked out of the box. Maybe I am not that demanding but this client has everything I need. Great job!
I'm looking a long time for a good mpd-client.
Now I found minion and I'm happy.
I used it to control the mpd running at my disk station synology ds107+. It works great. Very comfortable and stable.
I have only one wish.
Binding in an alternative lyrics search engine if possible. For example LyricWiki or Leo's Lyrics. Lyricsfly.com works but I miss many songs there.
Very nice! So there is no need to run a web server for the MPD to get remote access over a browser.
A possibility to rearrange the current playlist would be nice (song up/down)
After trying many different solutions, I decided to try MPD again because it was the most stable of those I had tried (I stopped using MPD because the web front-end I was using would occasionally "lose" the controls - no Play / Next / Previous buttons and every other solution I tried had one problem or another). What a relief it was to find Music Player Minion. On Ubuntu 8.04 simply apt-get install MPD, edit /etc/mpd.conf, and install this plugin...done! Web-enabled control of an audio server powering one source in my whole-house audio system. Thanks.
