Good suggestion. I considered that initially (it would greatly improve cross-platform support since TCP sockets are pretty much universal, unlike unix-vs-win32 named pipes), but wouldn't there be the overhead (and therefore a delay) of opening a TCP socket each time the media player is commanded to do something else?
