View Full Version : Cannot Control Player with Browser

Yes, with the 2/25 build I can control the player(s) from the browser. Thanks.
That was FAST!

Still some problems...
- start two physical players (SlimP3 & a Squeezebox). They respond properly to
remotes and to the browser interfacae.
- start a software player (iTunes, Mac) to http://host:9000/stream.mp3
- one of my two physical players (the SlimP3) stops
- browser does not show the software player
- restart the slimp3 with the browser
- software player still does not show up in the browser, but it starts
playing(!).. It plays the stream that the slimp3 is playing.
- periodically iTunes says "Network Stalled" then "Rebuffering Stream," iTunes
stops playing, and the slimp3 stops playing.

Details
- Server has a routable IP (so I can see it from anywhere)
- hardware players are NATed
- so is the mac with iTunes

Thanks for the report, Sally. I think we've fixed it. I've updated
the latest nightly build with a fix (the date stamp is the same...):

http://www.slimdevices.com/downloads/nightly/latest

Can you give that a try and let us know if it fixes your problem?
