PlayByFilename accepts a URL?
« on: January 08, 2024, 03:40:04 pm »

this call works just fine

/MCWS/v1/Playback/PlayByFilename?Filenames=http://dreamsiteradiocp4.com:8046/stream

is this working by accident or PlayByFilename deliberately supports playback of arbitrary URLs?

this is actually a nice feature to have though I'd suggest it should be a different api call, i.e. something like PlayURL and don't allow PlayByFilename to do that as it's fairly surprising behaviour :)

It just adds the filenames you pass to the array of files.  A URL is a filename.

is that (a URL is a filename) technically correct? doesn't really matter but seems wrong to me

anyway perhaps expand the statement in the MCWS doc to make it clear what this accepts
