Nobody is answering over on the linux forum, so I'll ask here too:

I'm having trouble playing ASX streams from NPR and Air America on my Fedora core 4 box using slimserver 6.2.b1 svn 4115. I've got both faad and ffmpeg installed according to the wiki and I've made what I think are the correct changes to convert.conf. My playlist for the NPR newscast looks like this:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1,NPR Newscast
http://www.npr.org/dmg/dmg.php?getNewsCast=true&NPRMediaPref=WM&getUnderwriting=1

When I attempt to play it, the log spits out:


2005-08-29 17:30:18.5243 Slim::Formats::Parse::readASX:
WARNING:
HASH(0xbc34d50) found in playlist:
http://www.npr.org/dmg/dmg.php?getNewsCast=true&NPRMediaPref=WM&getUnderwriting=1 doesn't exist on disk - skipping!

Is this likly a problem with my setup, or does 6.2 have a problem wtih remote ASX content?

I am also having problems with ASX streams. I went bvack to the 08-09 release of version 6.1 of slimserver and they work fine. But version 6.2 (at least after 08-18) seem not to work. For instance:

http://play.rbn.com/play.asx?url=airam/airam/wmlive/live.asf&proto=mms?mswmext=.asx

gives a similar log entry to the one reported by gharris:

WARNING:

And you're seeing this with the latest 6.2 nightly?

<dr.pox> do they call it 'gq' because it makes your text fashionable?

Yes, it was with the latest version via svn yesterday.

Can you send along an example ASX file?

The url link in my first post plays just fine in Windows Media Player. Do you have access to a windows box? Anyway, here is the playlist file in a zip attachment.

Dan,

I think playlistEntryIsValid should run isRemoteURL on the url not the entry? [Seems to work when it does!]

Yes, the 8-30 nightly ( SlimServer Version: 6.2b1 - 4117 - Windows XP - EN - cp1252)
