I want to configure Ubuntu Server to play music from the same server, with a couple of points:

  • It will not do streaming. It will play the music from the server to the speakers connected to it.

  • It will be controlled by an app that offers a webpage to connect to the music list.


MPD will be able to do this, and also streaming if you so desired. The setup can be a bit tricky but once you figure it out it's not too bad.

Once you have MPD setup, handy wiki page here, I'd look into client175 for an interface, it has a nice and pretty fully featured web interface for MPD.
