After reaching the third place at the national worldskills-competition we got this piece of hardware. But since i couldn’t get the java thing to work I’ve fired up visualstudio to create a little streaming application in C#. This went surprisingly smooth, so I fetched mono and installed it on my Linux server. Its not like i could take the binary from VS.net and move it to the linux-box but after a recompile and some forward- vs. backslash problems it worked “out of the box”.
The SharpStreamer still does the job, but I’d like to give it some playlist management thats not based on files but rather decides which music you would like to hear at this time. Aided by a time-table it would make a nice alarm-clock.
