Hi,

I have written a plugin for SliMP3 that enables you to listen to
internet wma (Windows Media) radio stations.

The plugin runs on windows only since it depends on an external windows
console application to do the conversion from wma to mp3. This application
is included in the plugin distribution.

For more information, see

Best regards,
Tapani Järvinen

Tapani,

This is extremely cool! I'd love to work with you to update the server
to make it easier to install and use, if you are interested.

Drop me a note or join us on the developer list....

Nice job.

I think this would be a good idea. The plugin is currently not too easy to
set up,
so it could use some further development. So yes, i am interested.
