I'm running last night's build - SlimServer and SoftSqueeze.

I have a file named chyz56.asx. It resides in my playlist directory. Its
contents:

<asx version = "3.0">
<title>CHYZ FM - Québec</title>
<BANNER HREF="http://stream.megaquebec.net/mqstreaming.gif">
<ABSTRACT>http://www.megaquebec.net</ABSTRACT>
<MoreInfo href = "http://www.megaquebec.net"/>
</BANNER>
<entry>
<title>56k Stream</title>

<copyright>CHYZ FM</copyright>
<ref href = "mms://199.202.64.76/chyz56"/>
</entry>
</asx>

This .asx plays fine through windows media player. It does not play as a
playlist w/in SlimServer. SlimServer reports the playlist as "empty". I have
also tried placing it in my music library folder and browsing for it. Same
result.

Strange thing is that I recall this working before. Something broken?

I also tried using the Internet Radio link and specifying
mms://199.202.64.76/chyz56 as the Radio URL. (tried w/out the mms: and w/
http:) No luck - yeilds a en error line 39 char 31
that 'parent.status.location' is null or not an object, URL
http://localhost:9000/html/docs/radio.html?player=18%3A45%3A3b%3A67%3A86%3A8d.

Ideas?

I tried this file and it didn't play for me either. I clipped out the
stream url and pasted it into an asx file that I knew was working and got it
to play for me. I've attached it, so see if it works for you.
