A friend and I both use Ubuntu (and Windows when he's at work). In order to keep tabs on what the other is listening to, is there a way notifications of the currently-playing track of another person over the net can be shown in Ubuntu?
We currently use the Clementine music player (Windows and Ubuntu), but I'd be open to alternatives if that can't be used. Pidgin can be set to display the track in the status, of course, but an OSD message would be great.
Perhaps using a web app in the middle like last.fm might facilitate this somehow?
