Hi

How do make the Slim server to use oggdec. I'm running a window box with WP
pro. I have oggdec and the other ogg tools. but have no idea what to do.
What I would like actually is listen to The internet Radio France Musique in
ogg vobis.

I also downloaded LAME, but does not know how to use it either.

Thanks

Didier

copy oggdec.exe and lame.exe to c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 (or winnt for
win2k). This should allow the server to find oggdec and lame, and it should
'just work'. Any further trouble, stop the service and run slim.exe --d_source,
and watch the output when you try to play ogg. One further caveat. I do play
ogg files, but I never use ogg streams from radio. I can't recall whether
streaming alternate formats is fully functional, or which formats work and which
dont.
