In the interim period before the plugin submission process is completed I've put this here for people to try, please note this is version 0.25 and as such is a beta.
This little plugin will allow you to share your media library with everyone on your network with no configuration. This is similar to Hydra ML but works with large playlists.
+ Dynamic network discovery
+ zLib used for playlist transmission
+ Support for very large playlists.
+ Multi-threaded, should not lock-up your winamp at any time.
+ Low bandwidth usage, communications via http and multi-casting.
+ Bridging nodes, between two multi-cast visible networks (Some routers within lans do not support multi-casting)
+ Context menu on media list.
+ Bug fixes (experiences random, but rare crashes.)
+ Caching of remote playlists.
+ Passwording of media lists
+ Barred IP support.
+ Selectable Shared Media
+ Seperation of video and audio files.
This code could not have been done without jnetlib, zLib and the wicked code in ml_wwww. Oh and its all free
Please let me know what you think of it!
(Uses ports 9000 udp and port 9005 tcp for firewall configuration. Needs to be able to accept connections on 9005.)
