Streaming media project update time.
I am gonna use MPD and Java MPD to play streaming music.
I’ll use LIRC and JLIRC for the remote control.
And LCDproc to control the LCD panel I bought and I will write some sort of Java API to it.
I’ll also write the glue software that holds it all together in Java and make it open source.
I still plan on using the Accent HT101 box.
I bought a remote control receiver from zapway as it works well with LIRC.
I need to find some way to hold the receiver in place behind the smoked glass panel inside the case.
Lastly, I decided to change the project name. WiMeP didn’t really roll off the tongue.
I am going to call it Wiphi which has much more “rollability” but doesn’t really stand for anything.
It’s sort of a play on “Wireless hifi” though.
