a plugin for streaming creative commons music
« on: November 11, 2008, 10:15:25 am »
I was thinking it would be cool if a media center had a plugin for streaming music from sites that host music under creative commons, like jamendo.com.  By default a person that has a new media center would have 1000s of music albums to kick off their new system.  And it would promote the artist, promote music under creative commons, and save hard drive space.

I would love to know what peoples thought are on this.

cheers  :)

aaron.b wrote a page describing the addition of Media Sources into the media subsystem. This is of particular interest to getting media from non-disk sources to show up in the File List. You may want to check this out. The resulting URLs can be sent to the media handler (MH) to be sent off house wide to wherever it needs to go.

Hi,

really interesting page. I have quick question - is there any way currently that that provided data list can be shown on Orbiter as other normal files or this requires Designer's work too ?

I'm thinking about providing a list of recent recorded surveillance videos to Orbiter Video media menu....

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.
