Exactly. Most users probably could not even tell if their Ogg library was
being sent as PCM. If they are on a lossy or low bandwidth network they can
always install LAME and stream their library as MP3.

Anyway to get wav streaming working on a windows client? I doubt there
is anything that will get winamp to work. Is there anything else. I
guess I could use the squeezebox emulator, but I really hate the idea of
running a MP3 client on top of a 50 meg java virtual machine. Nobody
has answered this questions before (I looked), can anyone answer it now?

The goal is what - to use SlimServer as your interface? Is this windows
client an A/V computer sitting in a music system, or is it the system that
you're working at?

Why?

I think that _is_ the answer.

Headless slimserver ---> windows clients all over the house. A few have
small amounts of RAM unfortunately, thus the desire to not use a Java
based client. Also I really prefer Winamps visualizations (especially
milkdrop), so it is always cool to get winamp working and gain EQ
adjustment and such. Just wishful thinking I guess. Can anyone explain
to me where wav streams get sent to on slimserver? like /stream.wav or
something?

Doesn't seem to be anyway to stream .wav to winamp unfortunately, which
is too bad cuz winamp will play wav files fairly easily.

Any ideas?

Why use SlimServer as the interface? Are the Windows clients also
headless? Why not just queue up the songs directly from Winamp or Windows
Explorer or a music library manager, many of which I'm sure must surpass
SlimServer in utility?

I've tried several jukebox interfaces and found that slimserver was
really the easiest to set up and use. I could just use winamp, but the
interface isn't nearly as nice. Plus I don't get to see album covers and
such. Can't I have my cake and eat it too? :)
