I have speakers throughout my house, with the wiring all running to a closet, where I have amps and a computer with mp3s hooked up. I've been running winamp on that computer and using a winamp plugin to use web browser to change songs, but I'm looking for something better. I'd like to be able to view all the folders in the music directory and change the playlist on the fly from any laptop in the house. I know there are better programs to do this out there than winamp+plugin, so could someone please point me to one? When I get around to installing keypads, running video cables, etc then I'll pay for a more robust and comprehensive solution, but i'm just looking for something better than winamp+plugin right now...

Just FYI, it looks like XLobby is going commercial also.
