Music on web pages ... audio from video files ... there's all sorts of music I end up playing on my computer, when I'd rather play it on my slim2'd stereo.

I'm imagining a plug-in or something that would appear as another "sound device" on my (XP) pc.

Am I dreaming? Thanks,

See http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=18764 - or search for other references to Shoutcast, which AFAIK is the only way to do this at present.

Looks like that works .... However, my computer is already bogging down when slim is running, I better not overload it.

(I have ~300g of music on two external USB 2.0 drives so that may be the 'rub' ... when server is running sometimes the computer grinds v e r y slowly on other apps ... hardware often loses track of server ('lost contact with' error) ... and when i kill slimserver process everything on computer immediately speeds back up.
