1. We follow another instance
2. We scan it's library
3. We import some tracks from it
4. We play those tracks from our own instance
You can't imagine how happy I am to see this actually working, after weeks working on the protocol/invisible stuff!
Also, on the example video, the files are never hosted on your instance unless you listen to them. Basically, the first time you listen to a federated track, the track is downloaded from the source instance and cached on your instance.
It's removed after a configurable duration, meaning you can federate with a lot of instance without eating to much disk space.
