I have to write this down while its fresh in my memory …
At the office we have a Roku Soundbridge which is a unit with a lot of potentiale and right now i unleashed just a bit more of it.
My goal was that i wanted to play music files in XMM on my computer and somehow route the sound to the soundbridge (and the stereo at the office)
I tried a lot and i installed a lot of crap which i may not be using, but what i think i did is the following:
I followed three different guides to install the icecast server. Icecast are installed from ubuntus repository We start ice cast with:
# icecast -p 5BQcAllxH1J3o
which is an encrypted password made with the command mkpasswd:
root@mike-desktop:~# mkpasswd foo
The hash is different everytime you run it … which for some reason is normal (i didnt bother looking into it)
The icecast config file looks like this:
location Just west of Mars
encoder_password YAtutg4TIWqEA #hackme
admin_password YAtutg4TIWqEA #hackme
oper_password YAtutg4TIWqEA #hackme
alias radiofri http://126.96.36.199:6903
I stole this from one of the eight or some guides i looked at this night, dunno which one but this works.
Ubuntus repository has a package names “xmms-liveice” which gives you an effect plugin that will stream the played file to the icecast server.
And then i programmed:
into my Ruko as “Radio Skive” (that’s going to be fun next time my colleages wonder why the local radiostation plays the same artists all the time … ofcourse depending on if they’l read this before that happends)
Either way … this works for me … i spend three hours on it … and forgot to do my work … luckilly im the boss :p
.. as a small sidenote i found a program nammed “Soundbridge Commander”, written in java and it gives me remote access to the Roku’s display and on screen remote control.
