Installed SlimServer v6.2.0, what upgraded firmware in my SB2 to v26. Trying to stream Internet radio stations in WMA format, via SqueezeNetwork. Getting:
WMA convert error - check file types
Isn't this suppose to work with SS 6.2 ?
Could someone post some URLs for WMA streams that work for him (in this configuration).

Slimserver supports WMA (lossy only), but SqueezeNetwork does not (yet). Look
for this in a few more days.

I upgraded to 6.2 I have mixture of squeezeboxes and slimp3's. I am trying to access Radio Streams (multiple url's in a playlist. )Initially, on one SLIMP3 I got the WMA convert error, but I checked for the presence of Lame (it wasn't there, so I added it)- now it tries to connect, fails, then moves to the next url on the list. The SQUEEZEBOX and SoftSqueeze work fine. It worked fine with SlimServer 6.1. Any ideas please?
I ran debug.. trace is below.

Would be nice if SqueezeBox does not need SqueezeNetwork to play Internet stations at all, like Roku's SoundBridge.

It doesn't.
I don't use SqueezeNetwork and listen to internet radio
all the time.

What makes you think it might?

I meant, neither via a computer nor SqueezeNetwork.

SqueezeNetwork is just a server that Slim Devices runs to provide a
reasonable user interface to managing your internet radio selections.

Ok, it's more than that too, it provides favorites management,
sharing of favorites across players, 7-day alarm clock, RSS news,
podcasts, live music archive access, web-based management from
anywhere, and more. The difference between a standalone player and
one that uses SqueezeNetwork is that the latter can be a LOT smarter
and more useful.

All it requires is the same internet connection that you need to get
to internet radio.

Advantages of SqueezeNetwork are obvious from the list. I'm only saying that it would be nice if SB has an option to work (stream) as a standalone unit, not depending on a computer (other then during configuration) or SqueezeNetwork/SlimDevices. My understanding is that Roku SB can do that (not judging how good).

It's unclear why this feature would be a feature, though.
