hi all!

is it possible to play the same stream/playlist to all connected sources
(like slimp3's and winamp players)
so that there's everywhere the same sound?

thanks,

yannick

Yes: in the web interface's player configuration you have the possibility
to synchronize them.

you can save a playlist and have any number of clients load the same playlist,
but each has its own separate stream. Slimp3's and Squeezeboxes can by
synchronised, but not software clients like Winamp or XMMS.

connect a software client to the same stream?

not easily. The software clients do not have a predictable buffer or network
latency to work with. There was a posting here a while back about slimp3slave:
http://www.ex-parrot.com/~pdw/slimp3slave/

This is a software player that closely emulates the slimp3 so that the server
thinks its connected to a slimp3. It only works under linux, however, and uses
mpg123 to handle the mp3 playback.
