Reply To: synchronise clients


Ron, is it possible to redirect the daap client using a http redirect header to a url?

What I’d like to do is instead of sending the user the mp3 file, use icecast to broadcast it and tell the client where to hear it.

I’m pretty confident about writing the code but don’t know the daap protocol so I’m not sure if the redirect will work.

I’m guessing that the change would be required in dispatch.c but I’d appreciate any pointers as to which parts of dispatch.c I should be looking at.

If it is possible then I would look at implementing Perl hooks into the code so that what I do could be used by others. I’d obviously implement this as a compile time option.
