| I now understand your code much better after taking a day to look at it. I
| am going to try and implement this over the weekend.
| I do have 1 question now that I hope you can point me in the correct
| direction to. Maybe I overlooked it. But where would I determine if I
| should open a new stream when someone logs in with the same user name if
| the user name is already in use? What I am trying to avoid is someone
| passing around the user name/password to all their friends so that
| multiple people can log in with 1 user name. That is what I saw the
| downfall of the flat text file authentication was. Do you handle this?
Well, the example select statement is just an example, what you should do
is generate a ticket (based on whatever hash you want) with a timestamp as
a second column, and check in the select statement that the timestamp is
less than say a minute.
It won't help much if users all have the same password but...
Now, you can modify the code to make an update after the select to say
"radio = 1" for instance, then you must do a "radio = 0" when the user
disconnect from the stream (that part I don't know how to do"

|> |> <sql_server>sql-server</sql_server>
|> |> <sql_login>login</sql_login>
|> |> <sql_password>password</sql_password>
|> |> <sql_dbname>database</sql_dbname>
|> |> <sql_field>url-field</sql_field>
|> |> <sql_query>select cle from client where radio = 1 and cle =
|> | '%s'</sql_query>
|> |> which are passed to the source it correspond to.
|> |> and when you call a source say, /foo.mp3?url-field=something

|> |> It should be connection loss tolerant, but I'm not sure about it :-)
|> |> For those wanting to try it, you'll have to have mysql/mysql.h in your
