In case anyone here is interested, I posted some code to the Roku forum to provide RSS feeds on a SoundBridge using PHP and mt-daapd:
I’m using the mt-daapd-ssc script to trigger the ‘apps’, though the flow is a little rough. The only thing missing was a property in mt-daapd-ssc to provide the IP address of the device (nice to have). It may help also if I stream some audio while the script is executing, but it’s hard to make non-audio content fit in with the SoundBridge UI. Maybe there are other ways to achieve this?

I’ve mostly got the iTunes XML stuff done, and two of the things on my list are:
1. Better interface for adhoc scripts (like you are doing right now). That’s detailed at http://www.mt-daapd.org/index.php?option=com_simpleboard&Itemid=40&func=view&id=1149&catid=7.
If you are interested in remote IP with that, I can add that.
2. An event infrastructure such that interesting events (client connect/disconnect/play song, etc) gets reported somehow. (unix socket? fifo? something like that)
Once I get #1 done, perhaps that will help your effort. It will allow you to transcode *and* run your apps, anyway, plus control the “song” display on iTunes better (or the soundbridge)28th May 2005 at 10:06 am #3349
All sounds great! Yes, IP address and client “user-agent” type would be helpful (I think you may have already added the latter?)
I like the event model. Don’t much care what mechanism is used. It could just be a local script file that gets triggered for simplicity. I like being able to know, for example, when the device connects, to trigger an app, etc.
Most of the real integration issues lie on the SoundBridge side, I think.

The script is working with php4 if you remove ‘private’ from the functions in sb.php line 59 and in rss.php line 23.
anyway.. I wasn’t able to use the script by selecting a nyt.svc file from my SB, using the modified mt-daapd-ssc.sh script – running mt-daapd cvs-20050522.
I’ve configured my SB IP 192.168.0.101 in mt-daapd-ssc.sh and placed an empy file nyt.svc in my mp3 dir /mnt/hdc1/mp3/nyt.svc and restarted the server:

When I try to “play” nyt.svc my SB says: “Unable to play nyt.svc”
the corresponding mt-daap log:

So.. what’s wrong here?
I also wonder about why mt-daapd says “Streaming to 192.168.0.1” although my SB’s IP is 192.168.0.101 and 192.168.0.1 is the IP of my WLAN Router.

found the “error”
wrong shell path in mt-daapd-ssc.sh:
#!/opt/bin/bash -> #!/bin/bash
