I am only using MP3's and some FLACs, all with embedded tags, no cue
sheets. Everything is simply stored under D:\My Music, no iTunes etc.

It doesn't seem to have worked for some time.

I am running slimserver in my office.

Works well.

However I have many computers with speakers and I want the same stream to
be streamed to every computer.

Currently in slimserver it is streaming different sources to each
computer/ip address

Is there a way to get a single stream?

Thanks,

Ho yin

I take it as no one has replied to my email that no one is doing this ..
and nor is it possible.

At this time, the answer is no. Each player has it's own stream
from the server, even if they are playing the same music, and
this is currently unavoidable.

I seem to recall some previous discussion about supporting multicast
at some point in the future, but at the moment I think that it is
on the wishlist rather than being actively developed.

I'm not sure if this is what you mean, but I definitely had synchronized
music happening between my Squeezebox and a PC running the Java player
Softsqueeze (http://softsqueeze.sourceforge.net/).

It was a real kick for me to move between floors in my house and hear
the same music at the same time from two different systems.

I don't believe they actually run from the same stream, but I really
don't care, the end result is the same. 2 systems with no notable
drift between the two (after the first song anyway!).
