Hi,

I've searched the internet all afternoon and I can't believe no one is discussing this subject:

Streaming music from iTunes is all well and good, but I'm not interested if I can't stream the audio from a DVD playing on my laptop or audio from multitrack recording software. Is there a compatible software DVD player? Is it possible (say I have a programmer-friend) to customize a certain multitrack recording program to work with this device?

Thanks,
Frank

Depending on your OS, there are various programs that can take audio that is being played and convert it into a broadcast stream that the SB can then pick up.

most obviously winamp and shoutcast. Create a local shoutcast server and then connect to that. I used to have to do that to listen to internet radio using my netgear MP101... I soon saw the light and bought a SB2 !

My OS is Tiger. Looks like Winamp/Shoutcast won't work for me.

My earlier response was not specific because I did not know what OS you were using.

For Tiger take a look at Nicecast from RogueAmoeba. You can download a demo version (the quality degrades after around ten minutes with the demo, but this is enough to see if it suits you). This definitely works, though I am not sure that there are detailed instructions anywhere.
