Congratulations VideoLAN!
It's possible the only true opensource project I knew before Linux.

As the name says, it was focused on media over network - now commonly known as streaming - right from the start, and using it as a media player was only scratching the surface of its cpabilities.

Since I use Linux I don't have much need for it, but it certainly is a great project/software!

yup, i use it as a localhost server sometimes.
Code:
#!/bin/bash

while true; do
	
sleep 5

pid=$(pidof vlc)
# test if pid is nul.
if [[ -z "$pid" ]]; then
	
	echo "Starting local cvlc server."
	/usr/bin/cvlc http://127.0.0.1:8000
	
	exit 0
	
else
	
	echo "Local cvlc server is already running."
	exit 0
	
fi

done
and then i use StreamRipper to rip music from internet radios.
Code:
#!/bin/bash

while true; do
	
sleep 5

pid=$(pidof streamripper)
# test if pid is nul.
if [[ -z "$pid" ]]; then
	
	echo "Starting Streamripper."
	/bin/streamripper http://107.185.47.98:8000 -u "FreeAmp/2.x" -d /home/vile/Music -r
	
	exit 0
	
else
	
	echo "Streamripper is already running."
	exit 0
	
fi

done
