Hey Andy,

Do you also get the error (or no sound at least) when you use the link in SlimServer? Also did you try it in any other player? mpg123, xmms, winamp, etc?

What you should see is the following. When the realaudio stream finishes buffering: "Assuming raw pcm input file", then when you stop playing the stream, you'll see trplayer crash, but that's a forked process, so the main process should carry on regardless and keep serving.

There's not currently going to be much of use reported on errors, as it was just a quick hack.... might make it a bit more robust and helpful at somepoint.
