Michal Čihař - Audio playback at home

Audio playback at home

Just set up Synology Audio Station for music playback at home. I originally thought about some more open solution, but this was the easiest choice which might still change. Main motivation was that I got really cheaply Synology Remote, what is wireless remote and USB sound card and I was too lazy to set it up with something else.

It works quite nicely but now I'd like to control it from my N950 phone. Synology provide app for iPhone and Android, but others are left in the dark (there is also no documentation about the protocol). The options for me are to write native client or emulate some well know protocol, where I could use existing clients.

Quick googling have shown me python-mpd-server, what looks exactly as half of program I need, so I would have to implement only bindings to (not documented) Audio Station protocol (there is open-syno, which seems to implement this protocol, so at least there will be some hints).
