I'd like to know if one can control the music being streamed to the stereo can be controlled from the computer, or only via the Controller. i.e. can I go into iTunes, and select a play list, start, stop, switch song, etc. (to play through Squeezebos and thus my stereo) from my computer?
Thanks,

You can't control it from iTunes, but yes, you can use a web browser to control a squeezebox.

Or you can use a remote...

Or an iPhone with the right app...

Go to: http://localhost:9000/ on the PC running the SqueezeBox server. On other pc's in your local network you can use http//192.168.xxx.xxx/ where the this is the IP address of the pc running the server software.

If you have smaller devices (e.g. mobile, psp) you can browse to http//192.168.xxx.xxx/handheld. These ahve to be connected to the same router/wifi.

You could also connect from outside your network but then it becomes slightly more complex.

Haven't bought the Squeezebox yet, but this is what I was hoping for.

So you see SBS is a web server that understands controlling squeezeboxes. Anything that can access the web can control the music: it's just a question of screen formatting (skins.)

Also, SBS can serve as a music stream source that allows you to "play" to any device that can point to an internet "stream."
