i see shorten listed as windows-only support. my slimserver is running
on osx.

although the time it would take to script converting all my shn to flac
would be significantly less than it would take to write osx support,
i'll still bite. before i dig too much thought is there some serious
reason shn support isn't done or is it just a matter of someone writing
the code? am i just missing something and does shorten+osx work?

thanks,

Bill,

I use shorten just fine on my Linux box. I think I compiled my
shorten binary myself and it "just worked". I'd recommend giving it a
shot.

shorten version 3.6.0: (c) 1992-1999 Tony Robinson and SoftSound Ltd
Seek extensions by Wayne Stielau; UNIX maintenance by Jason Jordan

the shorten binary is in both my path (the user it's running as) and the
system's path. when i try and play a shorten file:

Use of uninitialized value in addition (+) at /Users/fumerola/Library/SlimDevices/Plugins//Slim/Player/Source.pm line 1235.

which cooresponds to:
$offset = $track->audio_offset() + $seekoffset;

this is with 'SlimServer Version: 6.0.2 - 3085'.
