XMMS2-MDNS-AVAHI(8)         System Manager's Manual        XMMS2-MDNS-AVAHI(8)



NAME
       xmms2-mdns-avahi announces XMMS2 via mDNS

SYNOPSIS
       xmms2-mdns-avahi

DESCRIPTION
       XMMS2 is a redesign of the XMMS (http://www.xmms.org) 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(8) instance.

ENVIRONMENTAL VARIABLES
       XMMS_PATH_FULL
              A complete list of URL paths seperated by ';' pointed to the
              xmms2d(8).  See IPC SOCKET in xmms2d(8) for details of possible
              values for this variable
