View Full Version : SlimServer for Audio-On-Demand

Pardon me this seems like a very basic question to me, but I haven't
found an answer yet. I'm hoping to set up SlimServer such that it
servers MP3 to WinAmp and similar players (i.e., not Squeezebox).

That all works fine; I can stream playlists to these clients just fine.
However, what I am really after is a way for the client to display one
or more playlists, and for the user to choose titles or playlists -
audio on demand, as I say.

Any clues?
TIA,
Bernd

Assume giving them access to the web interface is not what you want?
Could you create a modified web interface that would only let them access
their own player's details?

The only thing I could work out was to run N servers on N ports (one
each, obviously), each hosting one playlist. Thus, a user has the
liberty to choose the playlist (via some custom web interface, for
example), but still cannot stop, pause or start the stream. I guess
SlimServer is cool, but just not what I want or need...?

SlimServer will run different playlists to different devices, no problem.
That's how I use it at work.

This has been discussed earlier, and there was a kind of solution...

You can load a playlist from a supplies querystring to the stream, ie:
http://slimserver:9000/stream.mp3?p0=playlist&p1=load&p2=/usr/local/slimserver/playlists/Disco.m3u
