Title: stream forward/back/repeat idea
Post by: 1Steven on February 09, 2020, 21:01:05
I had this idea that was interesting to me, at least, maybe someone else.  How can stream originators implement skip forward/skip back/repeat.  This is my idea:

1. mark the beginning of each song in the stream.
2. buffer the input and output the length of the longer song
3. accept requests from the receiving end.

Does this sound workable?

Thanks,
Steven

We already uses this approach for remote files, but it cannot be used for broadcast streams.
