A nice way to listen to your music through Squeezecenter:
Stream it to your wifi cell phone :)
Several newer cell phones have now wifi capabilites, it is then possible to listen to streamed audio music for free.
I tried this with a Sony-Ericsson W960, that runs Symian Os 9.1 and UIQ3.
I had to install 3rd party software, called LCG Jukebox, because although it is a walkman phone, it didnt seem to be able to play streaming audio. I then entered the http://192.168.x.x:9000/stream.mp3 url in LCG Jukebox, and 192.168.x.x:9000/handheld in the web browser, and could then listen to the music I have on my computer, and to Internet radios, services etc.. :)
In my case it also helped to pass through the proxy auth this way (Have Squeezecenter as proxy, and Squeezecenter using a proxy that passes on the proxy auth to the 1rst proxy)

A question, has anyone done this with the iPhone ? natively, or with a 3rd party soft ?

There was this thread http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=39363 awhile back but was more specific to S60 devices. Works well, but the audio drops out when the browser refreshes on my N95.

natively, iPhone cannot play streaming media. :-(
