I'm streaming audio from my Windows 7 laptop to a sound card attached to a router. I have a little batch script to start streaming.
REM Kill any instances of vlc taskkill /im vlc.exe "c:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" <parameters to start http streaming> REM Wait for vlc TIMEOUT /T 10 REM start playback on router plink -ssh email@example.com -pw password killall -9 madplay plink -ssh firstname.lastname@example.org -pw password wget -q -O - http://192.1.159:8080/audio | madplay -Q --no-tty-control - &
As you see the http stream is hard coded. It would be nice to get the address dynamically to reuse the script on other machines. Any ideas?
