When I try to play Otto's Baroque Music through SlimServer or SqueezeNetwork, I get the message "Error: Can't Connect To Retrieve Playlist." Have had the problem for several days now.

URL: http://65.19.173.151:8045/

I'm tempted to think the problem must be on my side, since nobody else is asking about it...

Thanks for your help, as always.

OK I'm going to replace Otto's link with the WMA version which appears to have a proper playlist.

Andy & Ross, thanks very much for the great support. Otto's music is back in the house.

I'm not sure what you mean about the "proper playlist" though. My SB3 now just displays "Baroque Music" while tuned to Otto, whereas before it used to display composer-artist-title tags for the music.

That's one of the things that has put Otto's Baroque a cut above most streams--though the main thing is great uninterrupted music.

BTW, is there some reason why "Slim Devices Picks" does not include Otto's Opera or Otto's Classical? (Is it just that they're new and may be added later?)

I couldn't find an mp3 stream for Otto's, they don't even seem to have a website anymore. By 'a proper playlist', I meant an m3u file or something that won't change, but where they can change the real stream address within it without breaking things.

If you know of an mp3 stream, let me know and I'll fix it.

According to the website http://www.1.fm/Stations/Baroque/TuneIn.aspx the nullsoft shoutcast stream is coming soon.

Of course I have no idea how long soon is.

I think that has been stated for over 1 year now! I tried 1.fm on my old Winxp laptop about a year ago and it installed a bunch of crap/spyware on the pc.

Via SlimServer or Squeeze Network? Works for me via Squeeze Network without a problem.

Via both. Via SlimServer I guess your firewall might be in the way, but it should give you a hint that a wma.exe is trying to access the internet. Mine did that anyway.

That six-month-old thread made me realize that SHOUTcast offers two of Otto's 1FM streams, Baroque and Classical.

And since they're MP3 streams, they include the track information.
