Hi,

I am new to this Slimserver world and first impressions are fantastic. I do
not have a SB yet but am using WinAmp/iTunes as the player - slimserver
5.1.5 btw.

I am interested in using the SHOUTcast plugin to enable me to browse/listen
to radio stations via my Slimserver and WinAmp client but I cannot seem to
find out if this is support and if so, how to make it work !

I believe that my SS is configured to use the plug-in, but I cannot seem to
find out how to "browse" for radio stations via the web-interface..

Can anybody point me in the right direction ?

Thanks in advance

John.

I don't think you do. You browse on the Squeezebox, Shoutcast Browser
being one of the choice available in the Plugins menu.

get a hardware player, or use Softsqueeze (search google).
The interface for browsing shoutcast streams is available from the player
interface only, at this point.
