Hi there!

I am just using the Slimserver Software for the first time. One reason was
the possibility to listen to a synchronized stream in the house.
My Server is running, all clients are tuned in but i can`t synchronize the
stream. Each player only can play a playlist for his own.

In the faqs is stated that is not possible to synchronzie between hardware
players (squeezebox) and a software player. Ok, but is it possible to
synchronize between 3 software players??

The only software players that currently synchronize are SlimSlave and
SoftSqueeze. Ordinary Winamp/XMMS-style players can't be sync'd.

It should say that synchronization of software players like Winamp, xmms &
cie. isn't possible at all. Only software emulating the hardware players
like softsqueeze (http://softsqueeze.sourceforge.net/) will do.
