Hello all,

I try to stream a WMA file in native format from Slimserver. We are using a custom written client for that running in Windows.

For this in the convert.conf, we added the line

wma wma * *
-

But still, the slimserver is not sending the start command in the strm message and it is not streaming the file.
1. Are there any other options available to do this?
2. What are the WMA file type (lossless/ lossy) supported now? If so, shall I get any file / file specifications, which has been tested by you?

Please give your suggestions.

does slimserver identify it as a known player properly, and is it SB2?

I believe the track start event is something that comes from the
player. Take that with a grain of salt, however, as I'm not really
strong on the slimproto details.

according to the doc, the slimserver streams is in mp3 and there doesn't appear to be anyway to change it. What client are you using that can't play mp3 ?
