kissd - server for KiSS DP-500 network movie player

Introduction

The KiSS DP-500 is a nice hackable DVD player which can play movies and music over TCP/IP using an ethernet interface. Update: kissd has been tested successfully with the DP-1500 as well.

While it's possible to replace the firmware with a custom kernel that can mount nfs or samba, a very simple first step is to replace the provided 'PC-Link' software with a BSD daemon. The protocol is easy to figure out, and there are several existing server replacements to compare conclusions with.

This is a very simple server, written in C, which runs on BSD and is BSD licensed. It serves all types of files from a path specified, showing subdirectories under the path as folders on the player. Files are memory mapped to provide good seeking performance.

NAME
     kissd - server daemon for KiSS DP-500 network movie player
SYNOPSIS
     kissd [-di] [-l address] [-p port] path
DESCRIPTION
     kissd is a daemon that serves movies, music and pictures to one or more
     KiSS DP-500 players in a TCP/IP network.  The server accepts connections
     from players on TCP port 8000 and serves files from the specified path
     and its subdirectories.
     The options are as follows:
     -d			Do not daemonize (detach from controlling terminal)
			and produce debugging output on stdout/stderr.
     -i			Run in a mode compatible with inetd, where the client
			connection is passed on file-descriptor 0.
     -l address		Bind to the specified address when listening for con-
			nections.  If not specified, connections to any ad-
			dress are accepted.
     -p port		Bind to the specified TCP port.	 If not specified, de-
			faults to port 8000.
     path		Path of files to serve.	 Subdirectories will show up
			as folders on the player.
     Example:
	   $ kissd /pub
HISTORY
     The first version of kissd was written in 2004.
