View Full Version : Is there any way for Winamp to "control" slimserver??

I know that I can get Slimserver to stream to winamp, but I am interested in
using Winamp to load up and play playlists on slimserver.

The reason I'd like to do this is that I use Winamp for playlist and MP3 tag
management, etc. I also use it to "rip" shoutcast broadcasts into individual
MP3 files.

Now, when I want to play those playlists and files on my squeezeboxes, I need
to export the playlists from Winamp and reimport them (rescan) into
slimserver, and then use slimserver to control the various squeezeboxes.

If there were a way to "play" the list in slimserver directly from Winamp, it
would avoid all that.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

I'm not sure if this is exactly what you're after, but you can play a
pre-defined playlist with a url like:

http://my.server.address:9000/stream.mp3?p0=playlist&p1=play&p2=myplaylistname

Perhaps you could port softsqueeze to a winamp plugin.

I waited forever to see this original post show up...and thought it got
lost...so I reposted on the 22nd.

Sorry about that. Didn't mean to duplicate my post.

Anyway, my 2nd post is much clearer as to "why" I would like to do this. As
to me "porting something," I'm afraid I don't have the technical ability.
Wish I did!
