To do list

=== Setup upnp frontend to mpd

Rendering media to music server through your source.
You can play music from your own devices into the music server. For this you need to have UPNP control poin application such as Upplay and BubbleUpnp player, in your device. For linux upplay works good. For android you will have 
lots of options like Yaacc(Open source) and BubbleUpnp player.
In these apps you get to select two options: Renderer and Library. You play the music from the library in the renderer device. So, you want to play your songs in to music server, select local library and music server for renderer.

Here is the app, but look at the Arch notes:
