View Full Version : can't play ogg stream

I can't play http://audio-ogg.ibiblio.org:8000/wcpe.ogg

My slimserver is on debian.

mplayer can play the stream.

I see "problem can't open file" on the SB3.

The log shows:

2007-11-23 21:35:33.1973 Backtrace:

What next?

These streams cannot be played by the native SB3 decoder. The OGG is http streamed and the MMS URL does not support http.

To play these streams - goto server settings and uncheck "OGG Vorbis (built-in)" and "Windows media (Built-in)". Decoding will now be done on PC and streams will play.

If your PC is not Windows based you will need to install additional s/w to play WMA streams.

I hope this help....
