Another basic question (the list archive search doesn't seem to be
Is it possible to do scripted playlists with shout? I want to allow the
people at my site to upload new mp3 files to the server and have them placed
in the playlist automatically. I tried generating the playlist (file) with
crontab, but it seems shout only reads the playlist once, at startup.
I experimented with things like shout -D '/home/matt/scripts/all.sh' ...
where all.sh contains a simple script like find /home/matt/music. But in
this case, if there was no playlist file, shout complained. And if there
was a playlist file, shout only played the songs in the file.
I'm a bit stumped. I can't imagine want I to do is impossible. Does
anyone have any example?
The real problem is entropy.
