2007-07-11, 12:08
Hi- I've got a newbie question which I can't figure out after searching all the forums. I ultimately want to stream yahoo music engine from my pc to my squeezebox. I've got the winamp dsp plugin connecting to shoutcast server and all seems well but when I try and point slimserver 6.5 to shoutcast I won't connect. I type in my shoutcast radio url as "". The shoutcast seems to hear it but immediatly closes. The shoutcast server monitor returns the log below

<07/11/07@06:22:55> [dest:] starting stream (UID: 0)[L: 1]{A: iTunes/4.7.1 (Windows; N; Windows XP; 586; EN; cp1252) SlimServer/6.5.3/12259}(P: 0)

<07/11/07@06:22:55> [dest:] connection closed (0 seconds) (UID: 0)[L: 0]{Bytes: 8192}(P: 0)

Any help? Thanks! paul

Have you tried the WaveInput plugin - I think it may the job without the need for shoutcast

I've got it going with softsqueeze using the web interface, slimserver by itself won't pick it up. Windows Media Player picks it up fine too. Not sure what is up with the slimserver but I'm happy- Very cool!
