streaming music off my computer - 07/08/02 04:03 PM

I want to stream my mp3's off my computer. I was thinking, maybe i could have a playlist accessible over the internet (http not ftp) so someone could click a link to it and then it would play the mp3's that it calls for. I don't know if that would work, or how to make that one folder accessible over the internet. I don't want to stream through a website that will do it for me, I want to be able to stream whatever music I have on my computer by putting it in that folder and maybe updating a playlist or something. Any good ideas?

WWWinamp will allow for people to choose what song to play through http. Remember, you already have to have a shoutcast server up.

I haven't read the thing yet, but they can suck my cock. "I am only making mymusic accessible over the internet so that I can legally enjoy it from any computer with an internet connection"

How's that for bullshit disclaimer-ism?

Well i checked out Shoutcast ant i was thinking, really i want it to just stream from my computer to them, without going through the server. I don't plan on doing any of that "Everything is 128 kbps" or whatnot, just stream it. But also, an anonymous ftp for just that folder would be cool too. i am not familiar with any of this so that's why i need help.

on the shoutcast site it said that it goes through their server first. With shoutcast can i just link to the stream so it doesn't go through their servers?

Just incase you guys would like to see WWWinamp in action, http://radio.teamphreak.net employs it.

When the stream is up, it allows listeners to queue up whatever they like from the library.

CS, with shoutcast, you are the server, you don't have to make it go through their site, you can have it JUST as your server doing it. You need to download the shoutcast server and the shoutcast plugin for winamp.

And I don't like wwwinamp.

Also, I think i might try the ftp thing. Not sure if I should ask how I would make the one folder accessible anonymously through ftp....
