while thinking about the next little fiesta at my place, together with a
friend of mine we were talking about streaming our selected music to
different rooms within our location. actually it would be only two
clients that would have to catch the stream. we are running one linux
box which would serve the stream. the clients would be that same box and
another ms windows machine. now comes my point: the whole thing would
only make sense, if both clients would play the stream quite
synchronously. will this be worth a try with icecast? how could the
synchronization be optimized? is synchronous playing of a stream simply
impossible? do we have to use the non-geeky method to just connect all
our boxes to one amplifier? any other suggestions? i will get some
answers tomorrow when i will give it a try with icecast, but i will be
happy to get something out the list about this issue too,
