Use 'Now Playing' ans SCP (SFTP)
Authored by: thorsten.b on Nov 29, '04 02:04:50PM
Here is a way to using NowPlaying with a server that requires SFTP. The idea is to use scp to transfer the picture, which NowPlaying stores in the local /tmp directory, to the web server.

1. set up your machine to use ssh and scp without password. A how-to can be found here:

2. Use Cronnix to run the following scp every minute or so:
 scp /tmp/nowPlaying.png userid@webserver:folder/iTunes.png  
3. Include iTunes.png in your html code.

Hope this helps.
