in reply to RE: MP3 server with IO::Socket
in thread MP3 server with IO::Socket

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 like that).

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.
