for this purpose you have to setup your local machine as a sound server.
i have set up succesfully using this tutorial, >
my scenario : two computers on the same private network
on the first computer , i copy the line export ARTS_SERVER=ip of second
machine:<port> to the currently logged in user's .bashrc file. Then play
any mp3 with mplayer with audio output chosen as arts.
on the second machine start artsd with artsd -n -u -p 5001 option (
however please consider the security) and set up iptables or firewall to
make the second computer to accept request from first computer on port 5001.
