initial release: 13th April 1999|
mpserv is a collection of different components that allow a
distributed collection of mp3's to be treated as a single
archive. Through network transparency mpserv seperates the
elements of managing, browsing, and
listening to an archive of mp3's. The basic idea is that you
should be able to do what you want regardless of where you are,
where your mp3's are, and where your mp3's are being played.
Now at version 0.10,
there are three components to mpserv:
the sources the server
and the clients.
The sources are created by locating
where all mp3's reside on a particular machine. This
index is made available via http. Software for creating
source material is included.
The server contacts all the sources and
collates the locations of the mp3s distributed over the network. The server
is connected to a stereo system.
The clients connect to the server and request
songs to be played, jukebox/queue style.
We have now opened up into a public beta-test and request for
features phase. We have a decent todo list but are looking for
some more input, specifically whether or not this works for
