Firmware 19 (available with the next SlimServer nightly build) contains
support for native decoding of WMA files on Squeezebox2 hardware.
Playback of WMA files is now possible on all platforms (not just
Windows) without server-side transcoding. This build does not yet
contain support for WMA radio streams using the mms: protocol.

Please give this firmware version a try when you get a chance. If you
have WMA files, run through them and report any playback issues. There
were many firmware changes made to accomodate the WMA decoder, so please
test playback of other formats as well.

Enjoy!

Cool! Any chance on getting ogg/vorbis as well?

Best,
