Assign mpd device in yaml to area

Sorry for the newb question… I started adding devices to my homeassistant and most devices ended up configured through the UI and got assigned to an area but I had to setup mpd through yaml and I cannot figure out how to assign them to an area.

I followed the documentation and added my mpd player, however I can’t figure out how to assign it to an area or even give it a different name.

   - platform: mpd
     host: homeassistant

I read couple other threads - they mention giving a unique id but it is not supported for the mpd player. Any other suggestions?

Well yes, stop trying. :slight_smile:

If the YAML configuration does not support it you cant do it.
