Anyone know why my SB won't play this?
Tried with both SqueezeNet and SlimServer 6.5.
Streams fine to WMP at 1411kbps on my connection.

What URL are you using? I can't seem to find the URL to the stream for this uncompressed stream. This is the URL to the "WMA" stream:

mms://media-wm.cac.washington.edu/KEXP-Live

Which works via Squeeze Network.

I was trying to use http://kexp.org/audio/kexp-uncomp.asx

but I guess that just launches WMP.
It does play the "Support for KEXP streaming. . ." through the SB, but I guess that's separate from the music stream.


mms://media-wm.cac.washington.edu/KEXP-Live
works for me too, but it's "129k."

Right. You might need to contact KEXP and ask for the URL to the uncompressed stream. Sorry, but I wasn't able to find it.

appears to be it, but no access to Windows at work, but that smells like a Windows Media Lossless codec, which would need to be transcoded by Slimserver.

I think I checked this out a while ago, it's actually WAV inside of
WMA or something, and we can't play WAV when we tell the player it's
getting WMA data. Something like that.

No idea what this station is thinking streaming uncompressed WAV,
that's such a waste of good bandwidth!
