meeep runs pulseaudio (including ESD compatbility) and accepts clients from inside the TAMI network

meeep is an eee pc on the south part of the eastern wall (TODO - automatically generated small thumbnail of map from inhouse-mapping-markup and a model of KG45/106)

Windows client usage

Windows setup is a little complex, but not that complex (10 minutes tops), see WindowsSoundSetup

Direct ssh

You can of course also just SSH into the machine and tell it to stream from somewhere else: ssh tami@meeep mplayer -playlist //that's the default when you restart the audio service

You can use tmux to be able to drop the ssh connection without stopping the music.

Linux client usage

To use from linux:

pax11publish -e -S meeep

(this can also work through padevchooser and other mDNS/zeroconf/bonjour clients, as meeep broadcasts it's available services in that way)

Or manually tell pulse-clients on your local machine to use a pulse server in the network: export PULSE_SERVER=meeep mplayer -ao pulse ...

Or in one command, for bash:

PULSE_SERVER=meeep mplayer -playlist really_cool_radio_station.m3u

see pic > Zrxq2qJ.jpg

to run in background (so it doesnt stop if you logout)

Pulse audio help

You can control the audio of any stream individually with pavucontrol (yum/apt-get/yaourt install pavucontrol/actual-name-of-package-TODO)
