Just upgraded to squeezecenter from slimserver and it works great, but softsqueeze no longer works (tried to run it and a box came up to upgrade- I have 3.4 and the upgrade link was to 2.0 (????)) I realize that softsqueeze may no longer be compatible (is there a new version?), but it looks as though in the faq for squeezecenter that I can use any software mp3 player to stream- so as directed in the faq, running wmp 11 on xp on the host pc, I put http://192.168.1.102:9000/stream.mp3 and I get no sound. My music files are on drive f on a usb hdd, and I have no other problems. Have I put in the wrong url or syntax to get this to work?

thanks in advance

btw that ip address is the host pc address rather than the squeezebox address

finally got the softsqueeze to work, but in any case, is it possible to stream thru wmp11?

Yes it is, and what you did looks right on the face of it. Did WMP connect OK? You should initially just get a silent stream. Then you can use the web interface to switch to the new player and start something playing.
