Hello Folks,

I've read some old posts that talk about not being able to seek within a track whilst it's playing when using Apple Lossless.

Is this still the case, or is there a fix for this now?

Cheers

Jon

It's still true and not likely to get fixed in the near future.
Seek doesn't work for any non-native format - not only apple lossless. Non-native formats need to be transcoded by the server to a format the squeezebox can play back natively. The transcoding process doesn't allow seeking. So it's a limitation enforced by the transcoding tools, not slimserver per se.
