Remote Control

  • I did some tests to control the MPC from my time shedule software. I didnt found any documentations to use it and Im not a c-coder to understand the source code at all.
    Cause I dont want to crash the player with an buffer overflow or something, I want to know the right format.
    To use the web interface I send only this lines:

    to control:
    ----------
    POST /command.html HTTP/1.1
    Content-Length: 21

    wm_command=...&null=0
    ----------

    to open a file:
    ----------
    GET /browser.html?path=...  HTTP/1.1
    Content-Length: 21

    ----------

    Is this ok or does something important miss?
    Have I to change the number in the second line?
    How can I add a file to the playlist?
    Is it possible to open an URL like mms:\\... ?

    The player always stops for a short while, if I use the autosave wm_command.  Is there a workaround to use this great feature without stopping?

    By the way:
    The player hangs up, if I choose a directory with a lot of files in it by using the file browser.
    It would be an nice feature to show the playlist in the control.html.
