Yes, ofcourse we should get together!
But I do think we should think on how to put it into MythTV.
Because it should be very easy.
Do you have a SVN repository or something?
(By the way, does uitzendinggemist work?! Cool!)
As far as I can see now, your plugin allows to play any stream, if you
show it where it is. But I think that last.fm should work more like
the software player they have available.
But I will ask in the IRC channel about where people think it should
go. If many people want it, maybe we should work to get it into
MythMusic instead of a unofficial plugin.
