Sound over ssh x11 forwarding?

At work I can ssh into my home PC (both work and home PCs running Opensuse 11.2 i586) using ssh. X11 forwarding works, and so does VNC over ssh tunnelling.

However I was wondering if there’s any straightforward way to use Banshee over the ssh tunnel like that, or to run Banshee on the work computer and have it access my collection on the home computer?

Hi
NX from nomachine supports multimedia as well as using ssh, you could
try that? Else I think sshfs may be what your after to mount the remote
(home) filesystem.

Thanks, I’ll have a look but it seems to be a bit of work to setup. Mounting the drive over sshfs is probably taking it a bit too far, since it is a work computer.

Does anyone know how to do this easily if I enable Pulseaudio on both computers?

Hi
Why not just copy the songs to a usb drive? Let’s see 3 mins per song
is 20 songs per hour at say 5MB per song or 100MB per hour…

Not sure of your ‘work’ circumstances, but if your an employee I’d be
checking with your IT people to make sure all is ok.

You could look at using vlc to stream via ssh to banshee (or vlc
client)?

Maybe another alternative is installing adobe aor and flycast to just
stream internet radio etc into your system?

There’s many options. Start a streaming server, listen to your own music through your work’s media player.

You’re touching a major problem here:
In the Netherlands you’re not allowed to take your music to work and play it there. You may play music on your home computer in a media player at work. That’s what you get from twittering law makers that don’t know the difference between a file and a stream…And they think they have it all covered now…
