Dear All,

Whilst the flood waters have been all around for the last week, I had more time at home than planned, and plenty of time to fiddle with gadgets :-)

I don't have a SB3 for my garden (well it would have to be super waterproof) but I wanted to stream.mp3 via a handheld device. Easy ... well no ..

Everytime I opened up http://localhost:9000/stream.mp3 using a web browser, I had the option to save or open, but all I ended up doing was trying to save the entire stream to disk, and not play it back.

I also tried to connect via the URL into Media Centre on my Nokia800, but no luck.

Hav eI not set someup up correctly? I use Squeezesoft at work and, and that works a treat (I have lame setup on my server).

Cheers

Tony

First you'll need to open it in a media player. Second make sure you don't
use localhost, but the server's host name or IP address. localhost is a
special name, pointing to the device you're using it itself

In the case of the Nokia you'd try to load the slimserver page from the
Nokia itself - not what you want. Enter http://yourserver:9000/stream.mp3
instead.

To clarify, I used my actaul IP address of the server, just wrote Localhost rather than XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX!

I tried to open the stream in N800 using the exact text in you rreply, but nothing happens. I even added the username/password switch but still nothing.

Confused.

I have a Nokia E61...and I can stream music from my SlimServer.

What you need for it to work those is some extra software to handle media streaming - I couldn't get it to work with any of the apps that came with phone. However, those clever people at Nokia labs have written a couple of apps to handle mp3 shoutcast streams, and put the apps here:

Thing is, you'll need a phone that runs Symbian S60.

Hope that helps.

this works for me on nokia 770
one thing to watch out for - if you have files that are not mp3, the option for slimserver to convert to mp3 must be turned on in server settings
(i had disabled all conversions - preferring to force SB3 to natively decode)

Thanks for the link, I'll try this when I get home.

Just so I have this straight :

Open the stream at http://myip:9000/stream.mp3
open N800 skin and select NokiaIp, then play songs.

Might be that I wasn't driving the N800 skin to the right output.

I was just following up with you guys to see if you found a solution to your problem. I picked up an n800 but i am unable to play a stream with the media player. it's pointing to the right ip, etc. stream.mp3 but it either freezes or says it's unable to connect to the address. i can control the slimserver with out a problem though. any suggestions?

Well, I found a tip that suggested turning off all server password security (not ideal) but it works just fine now using an n800 and media streamer as the app. the sound quality is fantastic actually as a subjective take. wonder what type of DAC nokia included in this thing. thanks to ben for the excellent work on the skin as well, it works perfectly.

Fantastic, my Nokia N91 has now another string to its bow. I can listen via headphones wherever I am in the house. The *free* streaming media client from Nokia is a bit bare bones but the audio quality is superb. In fact I never complain about anything that's free, Slimserver included...
Thanks for the heads-up on this one....

This is what works for me. You'll see that whatever you've named your N800 should show up in the little drop down menu at top right of page. Then all should work.
