Ahhh, i knew you would ask me that. Well, just so happens that I am working on the little plugin called "MultiroomAudio" and part of what I am doing is utilizing the built-in bcast functionality to signal "What playing" as it happens realtime so I have a function that turns on the bcast and then listens and parses out the messages.
The other part is mainly for the windows based xbmc's and in the addon settings I have just a text box to put in a custom "Directshow" device... I would really like this to be a drop down (less prone to user entry error)
BTW... noticed that you were wanting a true streaming backend to xbmc... well, while not mature yet... I took on the challenge.
