Release ezhttpd - A very simple file server for serving media to Kodi that Just Works

I have loads of videos sitting on various PCs on my LAN I wish to stream to my Kodi box, but getting Kodi (on Raspi) to connect to Windows file sharing has always been fiddly and difficult and I have never gotten it to work past Windows 7. So I came up with ezhttpd, a tiny http server in a single small binary that requires no configuration, no installation, takes minimal resources and most importantly provides Kodi with file sizes and supports seeking during playback. Just throw it in your /Videos/ folder, run it, and add the URL to Kodi.

I provide a Windows binary here, but if you wish it compiles just fine on macOS and Linux as well. Source code and documentation are here.

Thank you for sharing this, effective and good server!

This is my first time I've seen code language GO and I am impressed.
Did you just import the "http" from a repository and wrote 41 lines of code to get in goal? Smile
Compared to dot core with a 50MB++ for a simple webservice (gotten better over the years...) and several lines of code for the same.
