I've tried the advice in this message:

...but Slimserver always hangs as soon as I complete the circuit by selecting the playlist file that tells Slimserver to listen to the shoutcast server. It hands so badly that I can't bring up the task manager and eventually have to press the reset button on the PC.

I'm using Windows XP Pro, Slimserver 5.2, Winamp 5 (I tried Winamp 2.9 as well, the only other version I could try).

Has anyone else who's got this to work got any tips. I'm interested in Realaudio (for the BBC) so I'm using the Tara plugin for Winamp rather than the WMA one.

Winamp seems a bit unhappy, and sometimes doesn't produce any sound at all, but I don't see that that's likely to be the main cause of the problem

If I can get it working I'm all set to write a plugin to select "listen again" programs from the squeezebox, but there's no point in that yet.

Thanks,

Martin
