MP3 streaming server/jukebox


I'm looking for a software package that will turn an old PC of mine into a MP3 server/player.

My plan is to have one PC that has all the Mp3 files organised in a database. Then I want to option to either play the files out of the soundcard or stream them to another PC. The trick is I want this to be done remotely.

ie .

I connect to the MP3 server from a remote PC and have the ability to play an mp3 on THAT machine, or have the Mp3 streamed to my machine.

I have very little experience working with databases so that may be a problem.

Does anyone know any simple way to acheive this goal?

OK, now that I've given it some thought all I really need is a way to control the mp3 player of the PC remotely via GUI controls. Something that can be run on windows/through a browser. The streaming is not an issue now just the database of songs and the remote control.

Thanks for your reply tho. I need a very user friendly method.

Thanks for the suggestion but I already have slackware running and I want to use the PC for other things than just music.

Either by sharing files by http, using nfs mounts or running cplay in a remote system and playing through nas or with wrapper script around player that makes a temporary copy of the file through ssh and then plays it. Or you can use lpr to queue songs.

Thanks.

I got a reply from someone else recomending luf which allows you
to map drives through ssh. Works great!
