Now we in 2005 what are the chances of providing a way of playing Napster
streamed audio on my Squeezebox via SlimServer?
I'm getting desperate!
I'd willingly pay someone to write the Plugin.

I thought Napster was now DRM Windows Media? If so, there is no amount of money
that will get this feature. Napster was beaten up so badly before that their
only hope of survival now is to maintain strict controls. However, you can
always try to convince them to use more open formats.
