Some years ago I extended my mpDris2-0.4 installation to handle playlist names with special characters and download album art from last.fm or spotify. No I am going to move these patches up to 0.7. Is there any interest in seeing these patches as a pull request for the official repository?
Oh: And I had added a handler for mpg123 to actually play the music streamed by my MPD server.
And I added support for playlists, too … seems I had a little python hacking session back then …
