comment How to fix mpc timeout error
after playing with this for an hour now without any freezes I'm beginning to feel that the pulse-audio group (which wasn't mentioned in any of the tutorials I've read) did the trick. Thanks! Moving on to make it play with shairport now: raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/6826/…

@Vincenet: ok, I found mpd is using the device: /dev/snd/controlC0: mpd 3792 F.... pulseaudio I've added mpd to the pulse-access group now. It does seem to work for now- no hangs. I'll need to have it go through reboot and some testing though- thought it fixed before..

comment How to fix mpc timeout error
Thank you for the detailed comment. The things that are confusing/trouling me are: 1) I'm typically running MPD as daemon, running directly is only for debugging. 2) running directly only works as root- otherwise it's files are not accessible (might be a config issue) 3) upon startup, audio output is often working but randomly hangs with the timeout errors when using MPC. 4) I've seen some hints that pulseaudio could be the cause and have reverted to alsa which doesn't seem to have the problem. Your hint of pulse-access is very valuable, I'll verify that!
