[Rhythmbox-devel] Queue Bar

I had an (extreme-crack) idea the other week which may help this - I
thought that we might be able to turn the sidebar into an editable
toolbar. You could then add a second sidebar on the right and put the
queue there, and leave the sources and cover art on the left. Or put the
cover art in the "header" toolbar.

I haven't started any work towards it, it's probably full of horrible
HIG violations, and may not even work. But it would be cool.

There is a patch sitting in bugzilla which reads the icecast directory,

I've been meaning to update it, so that it's a plugin and adds a new
"Icecast" source. But I haven't gotten around to doing that yet.

Ahhh, I think I may be looking at it backwards from your view.  I'm looking at it from a radio broadcaster's point of view.

I was wondering about a shouter plugin that sends /dev/dsp to a running icecast2 server straight from RB.
I understand this might be trying to turn a schnauzer into a wolf, but with being able to use and modify playlits in the queuebar, and stream dsp output, RB would be the most stable stream
app i've ever used I think.

For reference, xmms has a liveice plugin, and amarok has both a shouter and ice plugin.

From a broadcaster's point of view, being able to create and modify playlists on the fly is essential.

Again, I may be trying to make it do too much, as IANAD, but I am loyal to gnome, and would prefer to use gnome apps where possible.

Thanks again for all of the hard work.
