I don't know how interesting this is, but I found it useful for listening to music on my home computer (tunneled over SSH) while visiting my folks over the holidays. It's a quick hack, accepting CGI-using rewrites :) Download: http://dark.fhtr.org/streamer.rb Usage example: apt-get install socat libmp3tag-ruby1.8 cd music socat TCP4-LISTEN:8080,fork EXEC:'ruby streamer.rb' & firefox "http://localhost:8080/," Open http://localhost:8080/ in an MP3 player to stream all files in random order. Append a comma to URL to browse files. Drag file link to MP3 player to play it. Drag (stream)-link to recursively stream all files in a directory.
