mac mp3 jukebox via zeroconf
We had a bunch of people over for breakfast. There are speakers in the living room, but all my music's on my computer and we only had a random mac laptop. What's the quickest way to make this happen?
The key here was knowing what HTTP services look like to zeroconf.
- Grab edna, which shares music via HTTP and generates "streaming" playlists for you. All you need to change in the default configuration file is the path to the music.
- Install avahi:
apt-get install avahi-utils
- Publish the edna port via "bonjour":
avahi-publish-service "Evan's Music" _http._tcp 8080
- Click on "Evan's Music" via the Safari bookmarks and the links will open in iTunes.
