I had this crazy idea of creating a media player using java that would stream files from from my desktop computer, which I would set up some sort of server app for, and talk to a portable client app that I could download on any of the other computers on campus. This way I can always have my music playing without having to have my ipod. I just had a question of where should I start? I know a little about networking, I have created a simple instant messenger but that is about it. I don't know what class I need to implement to transfer songs, rather than text like in my instant messenger. What are some good ideas?
