WiiMPC is a simple MPD client for the Wii.

It utilizes the WiiMote to control your music server with buttons for play/pause/stop, change song, and change volume. The screen shows the current song, song position, and volume.

Install WiiMPC like any other HomeBrew channel app; then create a file in the wiimpc directory called wiimpc.conf, with a single line in it:

MPD_HOST = mpdserver

where "mpdserver" is the hostname of the machine running MPD.

The source is available, and of course patches are welcome.
