Peter,

I have been using it.
You should be able to run wmatool http:// or mms:// and hear the audio.
I have found two reasons for it not working:

"Encrypted" wma mmst:
Or accessing the wrong file. If you are accessing an asx or asm file,
you might have to open them up (they are html files) and get the real
stream name

Hi,

Does anyone use this plugin
(http://www.kolumbus.fi/jewel.tapsta/WmaStream/WmaStream.html) with
Squeezebox / Slimserver 5.2 ? (or is there another way to listen to wma
netradio on Slim / XP)

I can't get it to work. Plugin runs ok but when i try some of the
stations I
get "Can't connect"

I placed the bas-files in windows dir and pls files in the playlist dir.

And what about the url, does it have to be a mms:// or can it be
something
else ?

Any help is welcome.

Thanks,
Peter

Hi Arnon,

Thanks for your help.

I did manage to get it to work (or at least almost):

After copying wmatool.exe and lame.exe to windows-dir as well I can start
the streaming to port 5123, but then slim.exe hangs.

A manual setup where I use a cmd-file to run wmatool streaming to a port,
and then choosing the corresponding playlist in Squeezebox works perfectly,
so perhaps it's a problem with Slimserver 5.3 / WmaStream plugin ?

Any ideas ?

Peter
