XML HTML server

Installs ok... turns Winamp into HTTP server that serves requests using XML or HTML. It always feels a little sketchy double clicking on a file named 'snowcrash' tho.

A plugin with a lot of potential - I stumbled across this plugin whilst looking for something that would allow me to display which track I'm listening to currently on my webpage. Having installed and tried it out I must say I'm impressed - it works very nicely, but has a couple of issues still. Firstly the outputted text is neither well-formed XML nor HTML; more so it's a quasi-mix of both. In addition, the interface presented could really do with more work, and I'd also suggest a better, more structured approach to the HTML. The major gripe is the fact it doesn't work in any browser other than Internet Explorer. Quite howcome, I'm not sure, since all of the hyperlinks are server-side URLs, not local scripts. My suggestions would be to switch to a frameless, well-formed, structured XHTML layout, get it to work in other browsers (testing it in lynx on a unix box would be the ultimate seal of approval imho) and perhaps allow users to define a stylesheet for layout; this would certainly be good for individuals who plan to use a handheld PDA with a wireless link as a remote control for winamp. - January 21, 2003 by Ben Darlow


Great for home network - This is a fantastic plugin for home mp3 networks. It controls my central mp3 server with ease from any device with a browser. Just watch the msxml4 parser under Win2000. It would only work with msxml3 on my Win2000 box. - April 24, 2002 by Mort Batchelder


Great for Offices! - An invaluable tool in our office. Allows EVERYONE in the office to conrol winamp with no extra software on their systems. Turn the volume down when the phone rings. Change the track when a VIP walks in. Find a song easily from the huge playlist window. I'd give it six stars if I could. Thanx Victor! - November 25, 2001 by Mike Tomlinson


Good Beginning - This is the plugin I have been waiting for. I took an old computer put a sound card and 4gig drive in it, attached it to my stereo and home network. I don't use my cd player anymore. Later version available at http://mp3pirate.com/snowcrash/. I am starting my own interfaces, very easy to do. I highly recommend this plugin since the only client program you need is a standard browser. - July 25, 2001 by Shawn Hendricks

Ipaq wireless remote. Finally. - This makes remote control via wirless Ipaq a reality. Absolutely first rate. Be sure to edit the roles.cfg (in the plugins folder) with the ip address of the clients you want to access & control the server. This is covered in the VykTor_Manual.htm page. Right now I'm streaming off my Rio_Car (empeg) to my stereo and controlling it from the back porch...aaah. - May 13, 2001 by C G


worth pursuing - This will kick ass once the bugs have been worked out. I built a interface in short order and it was a piece of cake. The really cool thing was building a small remote control unit so that you can control the essential functions from a small window. It is missing a few key things though: no clear play list command no save play list command no network drive support - May 7, 2001 by cole valley
