View Full Version : Daemonized MP3 player (linux)

2003-11-10, 11:03
I only own one SliMP3 for the living room, but would like to use the
server in my room, too. My server is a "headless" linux box sitting right
beside my hifi system. So why not simply connecting its built-in sound
card to the amp?

What I need is some kind daemonized MP3 player which is simply listening
to http://localhost:9000/stream.mp3. All control would be done using
SliMP3's web interface.

Does anybody know of such a setup? What do you think about the idea?

I have been googling and found a mplayer daemon (pretty recent:
http://mplayerd.sourceforge.net/) or some perl modules which can daemonize
mpg123 (http://beppu.lbox.org/proj/mp3-daemon.html). I'll have a closer
