OHU/OHM SongCast Stream Decoder

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone out there is actively developing or considering developing an input plugin for MPD which would allow it to accept URI in the OHU/OHM format required by a SongCast receiver.

Details about the format can be found here: http://openhome.org/wiki/Av:Developer:Songcast:Ohm

From what I can find/understand the audio is transmitted as big endian PCM, so from what I can see there should not be too many issues in playing this through MPD. However, my experience in writing decoders is limited to non-existent, so there may be more implications than I am aware of.

If you are developing or interested, I would like to hear from you to see how you are getting on or if we could work together in order to create the input plugin required.
