10.1. Project Overview

In order to expose your media collection to the Internet, you'll be creating Active Server Pages (ASP) to access a backing store of media files and format it for viewing as a web page.

This project basically consists of three layers, as shown in Figure 10-1. There's a backing store that contains all the media files; you'll be accessing this information and reformatting it for presentation through a web browser by the web interface. Then we have the web interface layer. Although you'll be using ASP to generate the pages, they could just as easily be written in Perl, JSP, or any other language that supports dynamic page generation. In addition to presenting the files in a manner that allows for easy navigation, the scripts will also dynamically generate WinAMP-style playlists that automatically download to the Media Player layer.
