Streaming audio output of mplayer over network

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys.  I had this idea the other day to pipe the audio output of mplayer over the network to stream from mplayer.  I looked around a bit and supposedly I can do this with a fifo.  Anyone have any idea how'd I'd go about this?

I came up with a kind of janky workaround.  Ran 

nc localhost 1234 < x.mp3

 on the sending machine and 

nc -l -p 1234 | mplayer -

 on the playing machine.  It was a little choppy though.

Nice! Looks like a "hack" to me.
