View Full Version : Now Playing information

Hello, I would really like to be able to extract information such as 'Now
Playing.' from my slimserver to include on a web page but have absolutely no
idea where to start.

I can see that I can point a browser to my slimserver web interface which is
visible on the internet, enter my username/password and view that
information - is there some way that I can code this so that I can display
the information another web site? I appreciate that it might need to get
past the username/password thing which may render those credentials being
visible in some viewable source but that aside - can anyone point me in the
direction of some html code that I could plunder to do this?



Kind regards



Richard Scales

Did you have a look at the plugins page
(http://www.slimdevices.com/dev_plugins.html). There's some stuff like
slimclass.php, Geeklog etc. which will help you getting the information
you need to your page.

You can try my WebLogger plugin (currently only compatible with v5.4.x...v6 compatability soon)

If you have any questions/problems getting 'er going with your setup, I'd be glad to help out.

I just wanted to chime in and mention that I use Danny's plugin (on a 5.4 setup) and find it to be excellent. It's quite well done with a lot of features.
