]winamp...openURL... http:\\localhost:9000/stream.mp3
]Then just choose the same playlist :)

]If you have linux, you can use slimp3slave which will allow you to
synchronize
]with your slimp3.

This doesn't work!!! Any other tips!! (Or a step-by-step from someone
who's done it on a PC?)

Does it only work with Winamp? What about RealOne/RealPlayer, Windows Media
Player??

This should be http://yourserver:9000/stream.mp3. Important: you have to
use forward slashes. localhost will work if the slimserver software is
running on the same machine.

What exactly does not work? What did you try? What error messages did you
get?

It does work with any media player capable of playing mp3 stream. You
mention some of them.
