While trying to figure out what to do with my old 5600 I came up with the bright idea of using it as a remote media player up high in the kids room attached to some speakers, think wakeup call, stories, music etc.

I know that I can do most of this on the command line but I am at a loss as to the best way of doing this remotely maybe from a web interface, think Soundbridge or squeezebox lite. Or more importantly how my wife can do it. I am not tied to a distro as I need (okay want) to reflash anyway

Any suggestions?

I believe VLC has remote-control capabilities, so if you ran something with that (Angstrom most likely), you should be good.

Another good option, as mentioned above, is SSH. Set up SSH with X forwarding and the Z with a static IP address, then run whatever media player you want on the Z. It will be controlling the Z, but it will seem like you're using it right on the other computer.

Hope that helps.

Even easier, VLC has a web interface:
