Decided to have a go with the 5 Jan build. Installed that, updated the firmware, put ffmpeg in windows/system32. Result - when I try to play a wma I get a LOT of white noise with the faintest hint of the relevant track playing underneath. Any ideas as to what is wrong?
Many thanks
Chris

Not quite yet. I finally got a Win32 setup going the other day.

All - please remember that WMA support is experimental, and *not* supported by SlimDevices.

Right now, I can verify it works on Linux. It will likely work on *BSD/Solaris/OSX.

I'll try and take a look at Windows in the next few days, however real work comes first.

This will likely not make the 5.1 release, so Dean, please don't let this hold you up.
