The latest pre-release version of the SlimServer software for Windows
includes support for WMA decoding through the use of some software
written by Vidur Apparao.

If you are on Windows and use WMA, free to download and try it out:

This is the last major (and minor) change to the new release, 5.1.1
which should be out in the next day or so.

Thanks!

What about the scanning modes (ff/rew)? Have they been fixed yet? You told
me 2 months ago that you'd let me know when it was fixed so I could try it
out but I have yet to hear anything on the subject. I sure hope we're not
going to see another official release occur with such a basic feature
broken. Thanks for any details you can provide on this issue.

No, it means that we include the necessary binaries for Windows, since
the user has the appropriate decoders built into their windows system.

Folks on other platforms can install ffmpeg and use that for WMA
decoding, although for now, they'll need to add an entry to their
convert.conf file.

Does this mean that WMA-streaming from Internet Radio Stations streaming
in WMA is possible without plug-ins?

Not in the 5.1.1 release, but we will be adding this right away in the
next release.
