I made the stable v1.5 release in honor of SomaFM's annual live stream at DEF CON, and I have to say, the program already has progressed a lot farther than I had initially intended. It started as a quick little script to keep me from having to use the web player, and now somehow it's evolved to the point I'm using it to play Groove Salad on my Chromecast.
Still, there are a couple things I'm thinking of adding:
- Logging track info to file
- "Headless" Chromecast mode, that starts Cast and then exits
- Recording streams (I've seen other players with this feature)
I initially wanted to support player backends other than mplayer, but honestly unless somebody requests it, I'm not sure there's much point.
