Hi,

I'm running Slimserver 6.5.3 on Linux.

I can't seem to Rewind/Fast Forward through my iTunes AAC (.m4a) files - is there any way to do this or is it just a limitation of running Slimserver on Linux?

Thanks

Ian

No, it's a limitation of using a file format which can't be played
natively on the player. It has to be transcoded on the server.

Hi,

Ahh, so is there no Rwd/Fwd in Windows either? (I assumed it was a Linux thing).

What's the recommended way of using iTunes to manage the music and sync with an iPod but play it on a Squeezebox?

Is there another format with ok quality which will support the above? (if so, can a 20GB library easily be converted?)

Thanks

Ian
