I am using mpd with mpc for all my music needs.

Now, what I want to ask is how to load/play songs from a particular playlist in mpc/mpd so that it only plays those song.

For example,

I created a linkinpark.m3u playlist file using ncmpcpp.Now I want to load this playlist in mpc so that it only plays the song which are included in the above mentioned playlist. Currently what it does is play all my songs at random.

Output of lsplaylists

ranrag@ranrag:~$ mpc lsplaylists 
linkinpark
Rock
[other playlists]

PS: No, gmpc or sonata based solution please.

ncmpcpp is quite similar to ncmpc maybe it behave the same.

mpc

You can load (append) a playlist with the load command, so to play a specified playlist:

mpc clear
mpc load <playlist_name>
mpc play
