I have opened up the relevant ports to my slimserver so that I can access my music over the internet.
The problem I have is that the bitrate is too high so the music is constantly being interrupted. If I change the bitrate setting for the player in the player settings, nothing seems to happen- any ideas (music is stored as .mp3)

Do you have LAME installed?

Because it's LAME that re-encodes to a lower bitrate.

Did you get it installed?

Sorry I didn't let you know where to install it but I didn't know the installation location off the top of my head. Hopefully you found it, installed it and it's working for you.
