Hi -



Just bought a Squeezebox and waiting for it to arrive. What made my mind up
was the software. Very nice! The streaming feature is very cool!



I downloaded iTunes for WinXP but couldn't get it to play any stream. It
also reorganized my music library which screwed things up a bit. In any
case, I was able to stream using Windows media with no problem. If anyone
out there knows how to make iTunes for WinXP stream I would rather use that.




Anyway - Howdy! And I'm waiting for my Squeezebox.

iTunes works for me if you create and import a playlist that points to http://slimserver:9000/stream.mp3. I created a .pls file, clicked on it and that was it. You can drag over the .pls file to your "Source" pane to create a permanent entry.

Can you play any mp3 streams, e.g. internet radio from iTunes?
