View Full Version : SLIMP3: WCSB doesn't play

I'm running SlimServer nightly 2004-10-23 on an iBook 600Mhz G3 with
Mac OS X 10.3, and I can't get the following 128kbps MP3 stream to play
on my SLIMP3.

http://www.wcsb.org:8001

I use Streamripper to grab streams and listen later and rips I make of
this stream also fail to play. The SLIMP3 just makes an electrical
"PLONK" or "POP" sound and then plays silence. The counter continues to
move. The stream and ripped files play back without a problem in
iTunes.

I've ripped a 30 second test file which is here. I'd be grateful if
somebody with a SLIMP3 could test it out:

(Please DON'T follow this link if you don't own a SLIMP3 to test this
on, as I'm hosting the file from my own DSL line. I don't like to
burden the list with attachments.)

I tried playing the wcsb stream and found the same problem. I'm running
Slimserver 5.3.1/SlimP3 on a Windows XP machine. I can play the stream in
Squeezebox but not on the SlimP3 (even if the two are synchronized). Don't
know what the problem is, but at least you know it's not just you. One
thing thing I noticed though, is that my 'Now Playing' screen shows N/A on
both the Softsqueeze and the SlimP3.

Thank you!

Yes, that appears to be the title they use, which is something I should
take up with them.
