Fluid Streaming Server is a program for streaming MP3 audio over the Internet or any other TCP/IP-based network. Some of the features of the server include transmission of an MP3 stream from a predefined playlist (m3u format), relaying a stream from another server creating a network of servers, listening to a port for an incoming stream and broadcasting it, and using telnet to connect to the server and get information about the connected clients and current song playing. Provided is an Applet that will display the name and other information of the song the server is currently broadcasting.
Release Notes: A rewrite from scratch for greater extendability, written as an API encouraging other to write new ways of sending streams and handling new media formats. The goal is to have others writing plug-ins for Fluid that will extend its capabilities.
