View Full Version : Transferring from one player to another?

Is there a pre-existing way to transfer a currently
playing stream/playlist/'session' from one player to
another? Now that I'm using my SLIMP3s, and future
SB2s, more and more for Internet Radio of various
types, I'm finding myself wanting to be able to tell
the player (for example) in the living room to pull the
session from the player in the basement and continue
playing it locally.

Thanks;

Interesting. Didn't find that when I searched. If that
were a plugin, I think it might be just the ticket! Is
there a technical reason for it not being a plugin, or was
it just that you didn't need a plugin when you wrote it?

Yeah, I realised that after I posted. My apologies.

none required. I just can't answer the question :)

I didn't even know it was just a script until you mentioned it. I can only
assume, based on my own experience, that Felix wrote this for his needs. His
needs may have been happy with a script. Plugins to have to adhere to a server
API and may be a lot more work than a simple CLI script would require.
