Yes, the media player plugin implements the ampache xml api that amarok 
supports, as server url put something like foo.bar/owncloud/plugins/media.

You have to login trought the web interface once while the plugin is activated 
before you can use that account with the ampache api.

Note that the plugin is still experimental and may not work with all music 
collections, browsers or server configurations

I *think* you just have to add your owncloud url and login as a provider in 
the Social Desktop settings but I'm not sure
