I need to play the stream.mp3 on the same machine that is hosting the server. If i play http://127.0.0.1:9000/stream.mp3, it bogs the network and controlling it from another computer becomes very very slow. I am running the server on a gentoo linux computer kernel 2.6.11.

Where on the server does the stream.mp3 file reside? Slocate doesn't find it....is there a better option to do what i want here? (well besides buying the hardware player...i'm low on cash :()

any help would be great! and once again thanks for the great software!!!!

This isn't an existing file, but only an url for the server.

Try the softsqueeze (see the server's help section).
