Lately I have been trying to play around with MP3
streaming. Since my Univ has a hast LAN, I decided to write
a search engine for MP3 search over Univ. LAN.
The whole process consists of two parts. First I use MP3 Voyeur to search the LAN for MP3 files. Then I wrote a perl script to put the generated MVL file into a MySQL database. Then I wrote a searchable front end to the database. Everything seems to work. The only problem is that MP3 Voyeur seems to be slow. It has been running for some 7 hours now. It has found around 32,600 MP3 files so far.
Next I will try to make dynamic MP3 playlists for myself. Ahhhhh once MP3 Voyeur finishes the search :(
