Something you could do with that from FirePlay?

That’s what we’re trying to do…See above.

I know, but I wasn’t thinking about sending a separate playlist, but have it create the sonlist as it does now, only as soon as the player hits a non-MP3 file while playing, it fires off a URL that you could handle locally…
But hey, if Flash doesn’t let you do that….

OK, I see what you mean now. Flash actually can fire off that URL request, but what happens then? Should I go on to the next song? I can never know when the external player has finished playing.

Not really expecting Fireplay to interact with the external player or fire off URLs automatically but just to provide a URL to a playlist or song that the user can select manually.

The scenario would simply be.

1. Use Fireplay to find and display the song or songs in the songlist
2. Click on the link to the song or songlist to launch in an external player.
3. Use the external player to play the song(s)
4. Rinse and repeat.

To reduce the interaction between Fireplay and the external player the links would be available for all songs (mp3 or not)
