Is there any way to forward sound over the network using netcat...
I've always been curious about this but say that you had computer A which runs headless and had music that you wanted to hear from computer B.
Sure you can setup vlc or icecast on computer A and stream it. But what if you could forward the sound over netcat.
For example, say when you play a sound file on Computer A data gets sent to /dev/snd.
Would be possible to do something like the following.
nc -lvp 6666 > /dev/snd
cat /dev/snd | nc -v -w 5 computer_b 6666
And be able to hear sound playing on Computer A?
Is this possible?
Can anybody point me in the right direction to find out about how to do this?
