Asking for advice :
I have quite a few albums ripped - currently being served via SlimServer from
one of my FBSD7 boxes. Clients are anything that streams mp3 (most of
them, except windows media player)...but I am finding SlimServer quite annoying,
in the sense that u need to connect to it so you can THEN create a playlist...
I also don't like that there isn't really much security ... UserB can get on my
SlimServer and change the music i'm listening to. Which isn't a problem when
using it @ home ...but I sometimes open it up for friends and it can be messy...
Is any of you using (or know of) some other software that will generate n
streams, that can be managed centrally (via web interface or other). Options I
cam up with so far :
- patch up / fork SlimServer...
- a playlist and stream manager for IceCast .. don't know which is good..
- VLC as server ??
- Apple's media streaming server ?
thanks for any ideas || pointers
