Subject: [gentoo-user] Stream Audio to RasPi on LAN

1 Hey guys,
3 I have a nice set of speakers, but they aren't near my desk in my home office. I used to carry them back and forth when I wanted good music, but that was a pain. I currently have a RasPi running arch connected to the speakers -- I've been cat-ing audio files over ssh to mplayer, and that mostly works (no fast-forward/skip). I also tried using reverse-ssh and sshfs to mount my files on the RasPi, but that seems silly.
5 What I really want is to be able to stream audio from my browser to the RasPi's speakers (pandora, grooveshark). I'd like to set up an audio device that maps to the RasPi. Something like /dev/dsp1, perhaps. If I could have some audio sent to the RasPi and leave mcabber's chat notifications on my laptop's speakers, that'd be fantastic.
7 Does anyone have a setup like this? Know of any good options?
9 Randy
