Thinking of buying...

I want to be able to edit the current playlist DURING playback of the playlist, using my computer on the same wireless network. I want to be able to "play DJ" in this way by browsing my song library and adding/deleting songs from the current list.

Does the software support this functionality? I wish there were more screenshots on the website.

I should note that my music files are on a desktop computer, but I'd like to be able to control the current playlist via a separate notebook computer on the network.

Not a problem. Use the web browser on your notebook to access the
SlimServer user interface via your network.
