Hi all

I'm considering buying a squeezebox Duet. Seems like a great peace of equipment.

The thing is, I don't want to stream my music from my computer, since I don't want it running 24-7.
I then found out you can use mp3tunes/mp3 Locker. But then I would have to upgrade to a premium account to fit all my music on there.

So my qustion is... Can I put all my music on my own domain or Ftp or whatever it is called. I mean, I have my own website with plenty of space. Is there a way to upload my files there, and have Squeezebox stram it from that location?

I hope some of you know the answer to this question.

Hope to hear from you.

The answer is no, music files need to be streamed to the players by a SqeeezeCenter running on a host computer.

Wake-On-LAN (WOL) is a good solution which has been discussed on these forums.

Hey Ollie

If you have your own host and can control the Firewall, in theory yes.

You would have to have Squeezecenter running on the server and firewall rules to only allow you to connect. You would also have to have a fixed IP at home.

All the best
