The amazing thing about Linux is that it can always take you one step more. You can already play music and edit videos using the powerful tools included free of charge on any standard Linux system, so you don't need a Linux magazine to tell you how to play an MP3 file. But we'd rather help you with the next step. Like, for instance, suppose you want to set up a music server on your home network, so you can play music from anywhere in your house and control it from a notebook or smartphone? This month we look at the Music Player Daemon (MPD) and the Cantata front end – a cool tool combination that could forever change the way you play your music.

Also inside, Paul Brown continues his series on video editing tools with a look at Kdenlive and ImageMagick, and we show you how to impose order on your recipe collection with Gnome Recipes.
