Totem/GStreamer/Xine music detection [Aug. 14th, 2005|02:32 pm]


[Current Music |I'm using Totem-Xine, I can't auto-load the music]

I was wondering if it would be possible for someone to make a Totem, Xine, or Gstreamer plugin to detect music much like it does with the XMMS support package installed/compiled. I have a few problems with XMMS, and Totem-Xine is my preferred player.

Caveat: I'm not familiar with those projects.

That said, I used to use my fileserver to play music from, and post from my laptop. I used ssh keys and a plugin for xmms that would output the currently playing song into ~/.xmms/now_playing. Then I used a custom command to check music- 'ssh fileservername "cat .xmms/now_playing"'

Something like that may work for you- remember if you cant make things talk natively a little bit of ingenuity can git r done ;)
