If the server is not writting anything to the socket,
then it was not able to open the song, or your client
is just disconnecting. Make sure the server
has acess to read all the songs in your playlist. The
playlist should have one song per line, with the
absolute path (ie /usr/lcoal/share/music/mysong.mp3 or something
in reply to RE: MP3 server with IO::Socket
in thread MP3 server with IO::Socket
If that doesnt help, then what is your actuall error. It
could be a problem with your mp3 client. I assume you can play
music with the client without the server?
If you cant resolve your problem, provide a more exact
description of the problems. Or try to step through it
with the debugger.
You can always telnet to the server (assuming it is running on port 8000) and see the file contents
being written to you.
telnet localhost 8000
This will cause the server to spew out the file contents.
If no random characters appear on your screen, then the server
was not able to open any files in you playlist.
