What are people using to play mp3s in an 'non interactive'
environment, such as an office with many people, or a room
at home without screen or keyboard.
I picked audio/mserv, which can handle random play with
people able to telnet in and rate songs so it can determine
suitable play lists depending on who is connected.
After some experimentation I've got it hooked to irman
(audio/mserv_irman) to allow people to control the queue
and rate songs with any random remote (each remote is tagged
to an individual so the system can tell who is around),
which works reasonably well in an office where viable music
varies significantly depending on who is in :)
That said I'm curious as to how other people handle similar
situations! (or if they think mserv_irman could be doing
anything better :)
