PostPosted: Tue Jul 02, 2002 2:42 pm    Post subject: MP3 Streaming program Reply with quote

I am looking for a program that will allow me to play MP3's from a remote machine. i.e. The PC with my MP3's on it is at work with a routable IP and accessable from FTP, SSH and HTTP. The PC I want to be able to play the MP3's on is at home with access to the internet via a cable modem.

Any suggestions?

XMMS, I believe, can read MP3s over HTTP.

No, I want to be able serve them over the internet from work, where my MP3s are, to my computer at home. Sorry if that last post wasn't very clear. I know I can play MP3s on XMMS from across the internet, I want to be the one HOSTING the MP3s.

Okay, so you can retrieve MP3s via HTTP from this computer.

Okay, so use XMMS or Winamp to download the songs over HTTP and play them.

So confused... :neutral:

I am not trying to confuse you, really. Ok, I will try again. I don't want to have to FTP the MP3s from work onto my home computer. I want to be able to play my MP3s that are at work from home.

Basically, I am looking at a program called "Ample". Take a look at it and you will understand what I am trying to do.

I am just asking for suggestions on programs that do the same thing that "Ample" does.

Sorry to confuse you. :wink:

So, how can you talk to your machine at work? Can you load up Apache?

If you can, set up a caching HTTP proxy at home (like Squid or something), tell XMMS to use it, and then MP3s will be downloaded as necessary or transparently served from the local disk. That ought to make everything happy.

Anyway, if you're looking for Ample, why don't you just use it? It should work "out of the box" on Gentoo.

I am in the process of installing/configuring ample and ampache right now. I figure I will try both of them out and see which one I like better.

check out pymps: http://www.anti-particle.com/pymps.shtml

this is a web based jukebox which allows mp3's and ogg's to be streaming over a network (including the internet).
