Subsonic Proxy - Connect to multiple servers as one

Postby agentblueuk » Sat Feb 01, 2014 9:55 pm

Ever wanted to be able to just see all your music, no matter which subsonic server you are connecting to, rather than have to keep switching servers. Well now you can :D

I have written a small wrapper that acts as a proxy for multiple servers. You just point your client at the proxy, it connects to the subsonic servers, collates the results and passes them back to the client. When you then request content, the proxy directs your request though to the server that manages that content. Simples! :)

Will be posting the code soon

so to make a long question short for others
can we...

1. have a separate video server apart from our music server? - its main use im guessing?

2. have different user accounts for these two servers? or will they cross allow accounts?

3. chat between servers?

4. or how about xxx on one server with limited accounts

and thnx for the work it sounds like something iv been looking for, for a while now.
cant wait to see the thing in action :D

1 - Yes could could have different content, but also could be say people wanting to be able to keep their music on their own pcs rather than lumping all their music into one server
2 - Currently the code just passes though the login details to each "backend" server, so the logins need to be the same. It would be trival to put some form of mapping in so that userX is swapped to userY when speaking to server2
3 - I've not looked into how the chat protocol works so not sure, it might work already
4 - If that's what you want to do :wink:
