mpstore dumps a daemon's state to stdout.
mpload loads a state dump from stdin and sends it to a daemon.
mpcp copies the state from the src daemon to the dest daemon, causing it to begin to play the same song as the src daemon, at the same position.
mpmv moves the state, so the dest daemon is left playing what the src daemon was playing, and the src daemon is paused.
mpswap exchanges the state of daemons A and B, swapping what they're playing.
The first hostname passed to each command can be omitted, if it is then the MPD_HOST environment variable will be used. Like the MPD_HOST variable, the hostname can be of the form ``password@hostname'' to specify a password. If any hostname is ``-'', the MPD_HOST setting will be used.
The full list of state that is handled is:
mpcp cannot perfectly synchronise playback between the two daemons. Network latency and timing prevent this. It should manage better than 0.5 second accuracy. If you need better accuracy of synchronised playback, you should probably use Pulse Audio.
