Lack of WMA support? BAH. I don't know any savvy folks that use WMA as
their codec of choice. There's much better codecs out there. As far as
converting to MP3 on the fly - what about converting, and streaming, wave
files instead? Is that an option?

Regards,
Erik

Even so, we've already got some folks working on adding WMA support!

Behold the power of Open Source!
