Is there a similar 'idiots guide' for OS X users wanting to send RealPlayer
output to a Squeezebox ...?

THANKS!

Audio Hijack (or the fancier Audio Hijack Pro) will do it, though not
streaming at the time. They save the file to disk, and then
Slimserver can run it.

An alternative that would stream an incoming radio program, more
expensive, and a touch more complicated, would be Nicecast. All these

I have to wonder if a fifo file (man mkfifo) will work here. I have
not tried it, but you can try to create a fifo file which Audio Hijack
will write into while the slim server will read it. Is it possible?
