One big problem I had was having to launch http://server:9000.strem.mp3 in winamp, THEN open a browser and choose songs.

If someone who understands the templates can lend me a hand this java applet will work to play slimserver streams:
http://www.javazoom.net/applets/tinyplayer/tinyplayer.html

I have tried it and the player plays the slimserver stream wonderfully. I tried to integrate into the gordon template with no luck (could not initialize the java applet)

I'm sure it is something simple, but a skin with a built in player would rock

Any ideas?

Anthony

softsqueeze has an embedded applet player that is available through the help
section on any skin that doesn't break the help section links :)

Can you direct me to where this is. I've been through the help on the
default skin and I can't find the embedded applet player you are talking
about... Sounds cool though...

you would need a recent nightly build for a start:
http://www.slimdevices.com/downloads/nightly/latest/

you will also have to ensure that you have Java 1.4.2 installed, or 1.5 Beta if
you want to be able to synchronise softsqueeze with other players. The donside
of the Beta is that the webstart feature is broken.

In the Home Page, under the help section, there is a link for Softsqueeze. This
loads a page that lets you choose between a webstart application or an embedded
applet.
