I think so because it used to work and then it breaks… Since, I changed my mind and instead of using paprefs and the rtp modules, I modify my ~/.config/ with :
load-module module-native-protocol-tcp auth-anonymous=1
(I guess theses ports are unreachable from outside the local network…) and directly tell the distant MPD to use the distant pulseaudio server : it works fine and allow me to change the audio outputs instantly, like I wanted.
