View Full Version : Remote Streaming Linux server to Winamp

I have been trying for some time to get remote
streaming to work and have been unsuccessful. My
server is version 5.1.5 running on SuSE Linux 9.0. My
Winamp is version 5.0.2 on Windows 2000. I have tried
with many prior versions of slimserver software (back
to the slimp3 software) and SuSE 8.2 as well.

When I connect to http://<servername>:9000/stream.mp3,
my Winamp buffer counts up to 100%, then goes to 0,
then counts up to 100%, then back to 0. Over and over.
It does say "Welcome to Slimserver" on Winamp, so I
know they are talking to each other. I just never get
any music. Also, from looking at network traffic, it
seems that the data is going over the network, but
Winamp is not playing it.

I can connect to other Internet streaming MP3 sites
like Shoutcast and other radio stations, so I know my
Winamp can stream MP3.

Is there some setup piece I'm missing that is not in
the instructions on the website?

Thanks,

Dan

Open your browser at http://<servername>:9000/ and put some tracks in the
playlist and press play, the server streams silence until you do that.
If you have another player running you will find the winamp client listed in
a dropdown selector in the status panel, and you will be able to select it
to create a playlist.
