Can mpd play files that are not in it's music directory?
if so How?
um - i think that defeats the point of the daemon? i think it assumes you have all your music in one place - which i guess most people do - playing one song at random is not really it's game as far as i know
if you need to play one file in console, use mpg123 or ogg123
mpd cannot play pieces outside it's db
