A query. On a linux box will AlienBBC enable listening to WMA streams?
Specifically, WXPN?

I assume Slimserver does not have the ability to play WMA streams
except on Windows machines...

Thanks, Mike

Hi Michael.

The honest answer is 'maybe'. AlienBBC uses mplayer to transcode for
you... so... if mplayer can play WXPN, then I think AlienBBC will see
you right.

Does that tell you what you need to know, or do you need more information?
