Me­di­aTomb, Playsta­tion 3 and Last.fm

Satur­day 27 De­cem­ber 2008 01:56

And an iBook. What's it worth to loose some more ca­bles in the room? The easy way was to get a piece of Air­tunes hard­ware to just stream mu­sic from iTunes to an amp. But since I don't have my mu­sic stored as mp3 or some Ap­ple friend­ly for­mat, at some point iTunes re­fused to stream or share oggs. That makes Air­tunes pret­ty worth­less, and a so­lu­tion should in­volve transcod­ing. On the hard­ware side my Sony Bravia is al­ready hooked up to my amp, my Playsta­tion is HDMI hooked up to my Sony Bravia and the Playsta­tion is con­nect­ed to my iBook via WiFi (Linksys OpenWRT). The hard­ware is there, only some open source soft­ware need­ed to fix things. That means in­stalling Me­di­aTomb on the iBook, con­fig­ured to transcode the oggs to PCM streams the Playsta­tion can un­der­stand. Some tun­ing with buffers and nice to get it to stream smooth­ly and it works. And as a bonus I've writ­ten a transcode perl script that sits be­tween Me­di­aTomb and ffm­peg and sub­mits the scrob­ble to my last.fm pro­file when Me­di­aTomb plays an ogg. And via the op­ti­cal dig­i­tal out on the Playsta­tion I can record playlists on my MiniDisc recorder. Who needs op­ti­cal out on an iBook?
