xmms2-mdns-avahi - Man Page

announces XMMS2 via mDNS




XMMS2 is a redesign of the XMMS (https://github.com/xmms2) music player. It features a client-server model, allowing multiple (even simultaneous!) user interfaces, both textual and graphical. All common audio formats are supported using plugins. On top of this, there is a flexible media library to organize your music.

xmms2-mdns-avahi is the Avahi mDNS announcing client for XMMS2. xmms2-mdns-avahi is designed to announce the presence of an accessible XMMS2 TCP socket if one is available.

xmms2-mdns-avahi offers a _xmms2._tcp service if, and only if, the XMMS_PATH_FULL enviornmental variable contains a TCP socket. This allows clients that support mDNS discovery to easily locate and connect to this xmms2d(1) instance.
