MLAutosearch is a shell script which is good for searching for rare files within multiple P2P networks. It uses the mldonkey utility to carry out much of the work. It reads a file named "slist.txt" which contains mldonkey search commands and starts a mldonkey search for each line in the file. It will download the first file that matches the search, and then will remove that search string from the list. When it reaches the end of the list, it begins reading it from the beginning again. MLAutosearch will download up to 3 files simultaneously.
xbmsd is a file sharing daemon that uses the Xbox Media Streaming Protocol (XBMSP) supported by the Xbox Media Center. It also supports the XBMSP Server Discovery Protocol (XBSDP). Its main features are mapping files to arbitrary local files or HTTP files/streams, support for filetype-specific, "synthetic" mplayer configuration files, and support for filtering files with arbitrary programs, which can, for example, re-encode media files on the fly.
