A new idea for OpenMobile
Since the fall, I've been working on giving guest devices (iPad, Android, BB Playbook) access to internet and media while in my car.
I have a USB 3G internet stick plugged in to a 3G Wifi Router. Except for small issue with iOS (seems I have to give them dedicated IP with this router), this works rather well. I run TVersity on the carpc and each guest can watch media.
But I've been thinking: How can these guest systems benefit from OpenMobile?
Can a simple web server be added to OM? Maybe as a plugin? This would allow the guest to point their browser at OM. When a request is made for playback of a media file, rather than have a streaming server inside OM, perhaps it can re-direct with a request to a seperate media server (TVersity in my case) and TVersity can begin the streaming back to the guest.
Am I crazy? Is it "too much work"? Is there better solutions?
