    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;

    inw

    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.
