Telescope

Telescope is a Songbird addon that provides a web service interface and a mobile-focused web ui for controlling your songbird player.

Telescope also includes Lens, which is a http server written as a javascript XPCOM component. This can be used standalone (requires the components/awIHttpServer.xpt file, components/httpd.js and modules/HTTPUtils.js, with the Cu.import line in httpd.js adapted for your extension chrome directory).

By default, when telescope is installed it is available at http://localhost:3689/ , and the web service at http://localhost:3689/service/ . This the the DAAP protocol port, as DAAP support is on the TODO list. The port can be changed in the Add-On options box. (This requires a restart of Songbird).
