Music Player Daemon Client for UWP and iOS/iPadOS.
Based on MpcNET, my own fork of the original .NET Client Library for MPD. (now on NuGet!)

Buy a sticker if you want!


  • Full playback control
  • Playlist management (Create, Add/Remove tracks, Delete)
  • Picture-in-picture mode
  • Live tile on Windows 10
  • Local playback support if your MPD server has httpd as an output
  • Integration with native playback controls
  • Browse library by albums, or directly by folders
  • All data is pulled from your MPD Server only
  • Support for both albumart and readpicture commands for maximum compatibility with your cover art library

Usage with a locally hosted MPD server

If your MPD server is locally hosted, you're probably running into the issue where UWP apps can't access localhost.
(See for a summary.) There is a workaround you can use with checknetisolation which should work:

checknetisolation loopbackexempt -a -n="13459Difegue.Stylophone_zd7bwy3j4yjfy"


You can easily contribute translations to Stylophone! To help translate, follow these instructions.

Adding a new language (requires Visual Studio 2019)

  • Create a new issue with the subject [Translation] fr-CA where you replace fr-CA with whatever language-region code you'll be translating into.
    • If an issue already exists, then don't do this step.
  • Fork and clone this repo
  • Open in VS 2019
  • In the Stylophone.Localization project, find the Strings folder.
  • Create a new file inside Strings that looks like this: Resources.en-US.resx but using the language you're translating into.
  • Copy all the existing data from Resources.en-US.resx into your new Resources.[language].resx
  • Translate the strings from english to your language
  • Once done, then commit > push > create pull request!

Improving an existing language (can be done with any text editor)

  • Fork and clone this repo
  • Open the .resx file (e.g. Resources.en-US.resx) you want to edit. Choose any text editor
  • Translate
  • Commit > push > create pull request!
