video-proxy solution
hi experts
I'm a novice and I need your opinion.
What (I think) I'm looking for is a video proxy.
I have a linux server on my basement and I want all my xbmc I have (every room) to use this server to play the sopcast, to save my bandwidth.

On my server I run sopcast sp-sc-auth sop://<channelid> 3908 8900

My goal is to lunch this on-demand. The xbmc client willing to see same (favorite) channel , will use the same instance of sp-sc-auth.

So, after googling few days, (I think ) I need a proxy (socket) server to lunch the sp-sc-auth (if not exist), this will connect to my localhost:8900, receive data and deliver to my xbmc client-pc.

my client pc will always connect to 18900 and my xbmc_18900 xinetd service will lunch my proxy-server

Need your advice.
If this is correct, some (python,perl) socket server example/link will be great.
an other solution?

thank you in advance

Would it not be easier to use something like shoutcast? Then you can get the input on your server and stream it locally for connections to your locally clients?

You may also find it usefull to use something like MPD (Music Player Daemon). You can remotely control the execution of sound to another PC with this. It also light-wight for running in the background.
