The basic music tasks such as soundserver (pulse or alsa), music/video
player should already be in the main distribution included like we know
already from existing distributions.
What I would like is a task-package which includes everything needed for a
working multimedia computer such like mpd for music streaming, and something
similar for video streaming over a network.

And maybe we can also make a similar task for the creators out there?
