I can't get it to work.
It shows up on the Squeezeboxes and lest me select it; says PLAYING, but
makes no sound.
I have (I think) put AlienBBC and MPLayer files in the right places...
I have no knowledge of PERL, MPLAYER etc though - so lease can I have some
Noddy help? Where do I start?
The FAQ on the AlienBBC site uses words I don't understand...

Could you supply so additional info. Which OS are are you using? Which version of mplayer? Which version of SlimServer?

If it is Windows then:
Could you stop the server and then:
1) Open a command window (click on Start menu then "Run", type "cmd" return.)
2) change directory to location of slim.exe [usually C:\Program File\SlimServer\server]:
type "cd C:\Program File\SlimServer\server" return
3) start the server manually with debugs:
type "slim --d_source --d_remotestream" return
4) Let the server start and then try to play a stream from the player.
5) Type control "C" in the cmd window and the copy the text in it (going back as far as possible) - paste this into a message on this forum...

Neil, could I suggest you take this to the 3rd Party Plugin list

Also - could you send the same debug captured when you try to play a stream [the one just sent shows the startup OK, but does not
include any error messages relating to it not working!]
