FS#6530 - allow peer to peer transfer of media files

P2p sharing on these devices would cause a revolutionary shift in media distribution, rivalling podcasting, bittorrent, etc.

This would be a killer feature that would be a reason *for everyone* to run Rockbox instead of the firmware packaged with their devices.

Picture a classroom, a bus, an office, where people sitting next to eachother could sync their media collections over the high-speed usb interfaces on their devices.

Eliminate the network component of existing p2p technologies, and you de-fang the RIAA’s existing efforts to punish those who don’t agree with its profit paradigm.

this may be a dup of 2465

I thought this was not possibal because the decives are USB slave devices, there is no host (master) controler. I could be wrong though. You might be able to make a hardware device that could act as a syncing device but thats not related to rockbox. Again could be wrong.

The iriver H300 series, at least, also have a USB Master port.

According to 5024_Brief_Mar05.pdf PP5024 devices (like the Sansa e200) have USB 2.0 Device/Host/OTG capability.
