i'd need to control something like ices too
my goal is to serve a playlist of files streamed, in which not all the
files are stored local on the same machine;
it could work with a daemon listening to xml-rpc calls, receiving a
long url containing the location for the server where to take the song;
if the song is local the daemon streams from the harddisk (like ices to
an icecast), if not then asks another daemon for it - maybe the song
gets streamed p2p thru the daemons and inserted into the playlist,
everything at the right time.
before i talked about xml-rpc controls for icecast because to reach my
goal there are two ways:
- p2p connection between daemons (i discuss above)
- the second daemon starts streaming on the same icecast where the
playlist is served and the first daemon switches to it with a 'select'
i sympathize for the second way, alltough i'm opened to suggestions
