buildm3u is checking for a source before returning.. Not good for file serving
"can you report that on bugs.xiph.org, the buildm3u is checking for a source before returning and as you say, that doesn't work for files.
buildm3u is always checking for a source before attempting to authenticate a stream. This does not work for file serving.
Are there any thoughts to create an option like buildm3u for file serving?
Was attempting to create a mount to a file and alias it to its directory. Then in the mount, use the url authenticator to protect it./song.ogg
I use the following to auth a stream when I have a user currently logged into my site. http://myserv:8000/admin/buildm3u?username=test&password=test2&mount=/song.ogg
but, since a fileserve mount is not a true source, this will not work for serving files.

Any way to auth file server requests with passing username and password information without requiring user to type it in on the player pop-up?
