Several people are using notebooks in the office, the big desktop
computer stores music. A good speaker is pluged into the desktop
computer (FreeBSD).

What do you think is the best solution to share the speaker?

These are what I can think of:
* Marc Lehmann wrote a perl module for playing music with mpg123. Write a cgi script and let people select playlist/control play on the webpage. * Find a existing good mpg123 frontend, modify it, let it control the
mpg123 on another computer through ssh or even let inetd bring up the
mpg123 player and let the fontend talk to a socket.



http://www-scf.usc.edu/~bozhang/notes/esd.html describes how to use
esound (which the mpg123 port is built with) to send audio to a remote
machine. You could also use xmms, since it has esd support too. I



That's a good idea. I am worrying that uncompressed sound takes lots of bandwidth, some people in the office are using (average) 500Kbps bluetooth link, uncompressed CD audio is 16*2*44100=1400Kbps, can esound manipulate it?
