WMP 11 Beta 2 has the ability to stream music to media devices such SlimDevices, but I have yet to figure out how to get the two to talk to ech other. Any ideas?


Thanks,
Niles

This as well as my previous post but should be addressed none the less. The ability to read/play the music list and favorites from MCE (Vista Ultimate).


Thanks,
Niles

Sorry, but I think you're mistaken. The WiMP 11 web page talks about XBox, Roku, D-Link media lounge, a Netgear DAP, and a Denon receiver, but no SqueezeBox. Where did you see that it can stream to a SqueezeBox?

Hey people
howcome this new MS WMP 11 Beta 2 "feature" is not compatibly with the new Squeezebox3 but with other mostly cheaper devices to stream music?

have a look at the list:

would this be posible one day with a firmware update? or is there a problem with the MS.
this would also be step further to get the Squeezebox work with the MCE 2005 :-)

I'm pretty sure that the supported devices are through UPnP (Universal Plug and Play). It appears that some level of UPnP support has been added to the latest slimserver (see the Release Notes for v6.5.0), but I haven't been following (a) exactly what level of support that is, or (b) what SD's plans are in this direction.

There was an interesting recent thread on this topic: http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=27103

The UPNP support in slimserver is to allow it to act as a client. So if you're running slimserver you can browse and play tracks from another UPNP server on your network. But the players themselves have no knowledge of UPNP so you do still need to have slimserver running.
