View Full Version : Missing "parser.dll" when trying to run Shoutcastplug-in on Windows

I finally got the shoutcast plugin to work on my squeezebox.

Followign advice below, I ran slim.exe --d_plugins. For some reason it couldn't find the perl modules that it needed (lwp-simple, html-tree, http-something, and auto\html\parser\parser.dll). The perl lib directory on my computer is not listed in @INC. Reinstalling perl (Active Perl, 5.8.?) didn't help. I had to manually copy the required modules (directories) into the slimserver plugins directory. Not the right solution, but it works.

Now if I could only get Internet radio to p;ay for more than 10 seconds.

I see, after installing Activestate perl I just run

perl slimserver.exe

The Shoutcast plugin appears to initialize properly, but I get...
