Thanks, Geoff! Trust me, you can only make things clearer than the docs at
Now, one last question: How does a mountpoint work ? Am I pointing it to an
actual file since I've already specified the playlist ? Or is this just a
'virtual' pointer used to connect to the server ? Should I point to the first
file in my playlist ?
How does the server know that when it receives requests to this mountpoint
that it should start streaming the audio ?
