>Sadly, after a few seconds of attempting to play the file, SlimServer
returned 'PROBLEM: CAN'T OPEN FILE FOR [TITLE]'. There is no error in my
server log.

Tried putting this in my covert.conf file instead, to convert using faad
then again using lame, but all I get is a white noise hiss (and the
progress of faad in my error log...)

mov mp3 * *
[faad] -w -f 2 $FILE$ | [lame] --resample 44100 --silent -q
$QUALITY$ -b $BITRATE$ - -

As always, input appreciated. Unless I hear from you folks, or solve it
on my own, I'll stop sending messages to the list.

white noise... try adding a -x to the lame command section:
[lame] --resample 44100 -x --silent -q

or try -f 1 in the faad command line. I actualy have both in my lines.
