SoundPlay: View playlists from the web

Contributed by: Scot Hacker
This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

If you use SoundPlay 3.4 or later, open the Plugin Manager and select the User Interfaces tab. Make the sure the HTTP UI plugin is enabled, and close the Plugin Manager.

Now open a web browser and enter (port 8080 on your loopback IP). Because SoundPlay has its own built-in HTTP mini-server, you’ll get back a web page listing all the tracks in your current playlist, with the currently playing track highlighted.

If you have a permanent IP address or domain name, you can tell your friends so they can see what you’re playing from any machine on the LAN or elsewhere on the Internet.
