Hi All. I've just set up my SlimServer and it works fine, I can play MP3's & WAV's right out of the box. I'd like to play my ogg files but the doc doesn't explain how. Can someone give me a hand? I'm running Windows XP Pro, wired Ethernet. I use AudioGrabber to rip my oggs, so I think I have all the encoder/decoder bits I need - just don't know how to plug them into SlimServer. Second question, is there a way I can use WinAmp to control the SlimServer? That would allow me to use both my home & PC's sound systems, and I could get the house rockin'!

Thanks
Nick

The stock convert.conf expects oggdec to be installed. Check out

for a Windows version of vorbistools.
