I need help converting linux box into a simple media player.
I currently have all this working on OSx, built with apple scripting, shell scripts, cgi, perl and html.
The current software system running on OSx is outdated and needs to be converted to Linux and re-programmed in "latest language".
This linux based software should do the following:
Create / generate "smart" playlists
Scheduler for playback - (user controlled)
Auto-Sync with amazon s3 or ftp
Remote management capability & more
This media box should also act as a web server and be fully controlled over a web browser.
Full control over the player (play,stop, skip track..etc)
Configure Network info
Set the time/date ..etc
I want to consult with experienced programmers to find the best method(s) of wrapping up this media player.
