View Full Version : Rhapsody on Slim

For me one of the greatest plugins written for the SlimServer is the
Rhapsody plugin by Vidur - now employed by SlimDevices themselves.
However it is in need of a little TLC at the moment to fix a few
gremlins and also to make it work with the V6 server. This last aspect
is my real worry as the V6 server will fix so many other issues for me
but I don't want to lose Rhapsody - even with its various tantrums.
Currently I swap servers on my players - back to a V5.4 with no library
just to listen to Rhapsody. Vidur has mentioned he has time problems
in attending to this....

So I just wanted to put in a plea to SlimDevices, or indeed anyone that
this is one of the really great applications , and one that enticed me
into buying a couple more players. If there is a way to ensure a future
for this plugin I am sure it will support many more sales for players,
and keep many existing users happy.

I just want to second this request. I'm in the same situation as Kevin and
would be greatly saddened at the loss of Rhapsody support.

Vidur, this sounds like another hand job is within reach...

I would very much like to hand over ownership of RealSlim to an
interested developer. My suspicion is that getting it to work more
reliably and with v6 is not a huge undertaking.

Kevin, you're right - it is in need of TLC. I would love to fix it (if
for no other reason, so I can resume using it myself!), but my
employment with Slim Devices makes it hard to do so.

Anyone interested in taking it over?
