Maybe I asked this incorrectly.
I'd like to ssh into a headless remote machine. Start a browser which
shows on my local machine. Use the browser to stream music, and I want
the music to play on the _remote_ machine.
I'm surprised that this doesn't Just Work, but it doesn't.
Any suggestions ? Any link to a howto ?
Or is this the wrong mailing list for this question ?
