||NSV Support and More!
This PHP script is used to take a URL list of NSV files and generate a random playlist without the need of MySQL.
All that is required is for your web host to have PHP installed.
The generated playlist file can be clicked on and viewed as "streamed" content on demand.
Caution should be used so that you do not exceed your monthly web host bandwidth
allocation, as video distribution uses large amounts of bandwidth.
If you plan on accessing external NSV files ( files that are not hosted by you
), it is highly recommended that you receive permission
from the host of the NSV files you wish to link to.
You should also ensure that the playlist
content is in strict compliance with your local governing copyright regulations.

When shufflelist.php is invoked, it reads the inputfile.txt file and writes data
to the outputfile.m3u file.
When the script ends (at the ?>) a link to the
newly created .m3u file is displayed.

This PHP script can support most media formats including:
NSV, Theora, WMV, MP3, Ogg, AAC and WMA file types.
To Do List:
Include a PHP routine that can be configured to limit the number of consecutive connections to the playlist file.
This is would be identical to limiting the number of clients that can connect to a ShoutCast DNAS
server, and would be configurable by the host.
Include a PHP routine that can be configured to place promo's or advertisements
in a designated order within the playlist.
