Hi,

I am using a linkstation2 to host / fun slimserver and so can only use inbuilt decoders.

Does slimserver 6.5 have an inbuilt decoder for wma lossless.

Cheers
Steve.

No, the WMA Lossless decoder is built into Windows Media Player. There's no standalone equivalent that could be ported into the Squeezebox firmware.

I may be wrong - maybe "mplayer" can decode WMA Lossless? mplayer could be installed into a LinkStation. I believe AlienBBC uses mplayer? Could be wrong on all this.
